Chilly Water Fishing

Chilly Water Fishing is a local, family owned business based in Little River, South Carolina. They look forward to sharing a memorable day on the water with you and your family, from the shallow waters of the inlet to the deep sea offshore. When you fish with Captain Bevan Hunter, there’s no rush—you are welcome to stay out for as long as you like. He offers trips on Saturdays year-round, in addition to trips on Fridays during the summer. Join him and start your weekend by reeling in a catch to remember!

You will fish aboard a 23’ Sea Hunt Triton 232 powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine. This vessel comes equipped with GPS, Fishfinder, and top of the line tackle. Capt. Bevan keeps a cooler with ice and bottled water on board, and you are welcome to bring your own drinks.

Born and raised on the coast of South Carolina, Capt. Bevan knows these waters well. He grew up fishing the local rivers, creeks, and inlets. Over the past 10 years, he has also become familiar with the offshore waters surrounding North Myrtle Beach. He strives to customize every trip to your expectations, no matter your age or skill level.

You are welcome aboard any time of year to fish the inshore and nearshore waters for a variety of popular species. Within 10 miles of shore you can target Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Sharks, and Mackerel.

During summer and early fall, Capt. Bevan can also take you up to 40 miles offshore, where you will bottom fish for Black Seabass, Snapper, Grouper, and Amberjack. More experienced anglers can try their hand at vertical jigging for some of these species. You may also troll for Barracuda, Mahi Mahi, and King Mackerel.

Chilly Water Fishing provides a license and all the gear you need. You’re also welcome to keep your catch (within limits). Bring your family aboard for a weekend adventure on the waters surrounding North Myrtle Beach!

I was born and raised here on the coast and have had a love for the outdoors ever since I was a toddler. As a child I grew up fishing the rivers, inlets, and backwaters here. After growing up and getting married, I worked a very stressful job with long hours for 15 years. To wind down and relax I would always fall back on my original love, fishing. I guess it was always somewhat of dream to become a fishing guide, and slowly this dream is becoming a reality. For now, I am only able to run trips on Fridays and Saturdays. Still hoping that with your help and blessings from above that one day I can run this business full time. Hope you have a good day and would love to see you on the water!
