According to customer reviews, Fishin' Adventures Little River, Any Tide Fishing, and Killin Time Charters are some of the most popular fishing charters in Little River, South Carolina. Full list of top fishing charters in Little River.

Fishin' Adventures Little River, Any Tide Fishing, and Killin Time Charters all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Little River.

The most popular fish species you can target are King Mackerel (Kingfish), Spanish Mackerel, and Black Seabass. Top fishing techniques include light tackle, bottom fishing, and trolling. Nearshore fishing, inshore fishing, and reef fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Little River fishing charters continue a proud tradition, as this is the oldest town on the entire Grand Strand. Even though it’s very close to popular tourist locations like Myrtle Beach, the lack of hustle and bustle makes for a much more personal experience. Not only is the fishing top-notch, but you’ll see a variety of native and exotic birds, as well as inquisitive Dolphins to keep you entertained on the local waterways.

Known For

Little River may be little, but it’s got a rich history. What started off as a fishing village and trading port ended up as the host of numerous cultural events and entertainment venues. These include the Blue Crab Festival, Shrimp and Jazz Festival, Little River Oktoberfest, and more besides. Even George Washington paid a visit, spending a night in Jeremiah Vereen’s cabin.

The Intracoastal Waterways and ample backwater creeks cocooning the Little River community provide a nourishing habitat for gamefish of all shapes and sizes. There are plenty of keepers to go around throughout the entire year.

Where to Fish

Flounder and Bluefish dominate the tidal creeks as soon as early spring, later on migrating to the area’s abundant inlets and sounds. Following suit, the coveted Redfish schools infest the neighboring rivers and inlets during the prolific fall season. Come wintertime, expect massive Stripers and Speckled Trout to show up at the creek mouths.

Among the numerous fishing spots available, Little River Inlet sticks out in the best way possible. Anglers from all over will be lining up to cast their lines in these bountiful water. The local jetties are the place to go for anyone who’s a fan of Redfish, Trout, or Flounder.

The nearshore reefs, sunken wrecks and live rock bottoms play host to a wide range of rod-bending bruisers such as Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, Amberjack, Barracuda and Cobia. Nocturnal fishing excursions for Seabass and several Shark species are proving increasingly popular as well.

If offshore sportfishing is what really gets you going, Little River charters can more than provide. The Gulf Stream honey holes are inhabited by several world-renowned pelagic species, including Dorado, Wahoo, Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Marlin and more. Come on down in early summer, and they’ll really give you a run for your money!

Fishing Techniques

Early winter is a great time to be fishing inshore. The waters will be clear, giving you a great opportunity to practice your sight casting. Local anglers like using topwater plugs and live Shrimp when going after Trout. The latter is also great when stalking big Reds as well. When it gets a bit warmer, charters will start running special Flounder trips. This is a great way to spend a warm summer evening, be sure to check it out.

Expeditions into the deep blue, on the other hand, usually involve a mixture of trolling and bottom fishing. A proper bluewater trip means a trip to the edge of the Continental Shelf, which is some 50 miles away from shore. A 12 hour trip is the norm, so make sure you have the time to spare. Vertical jigs are a standard part of the arsenal for going up against bottom feeders like Snapper. As for pelagics like Tuna and Wahoo, put on some skirted Ballyhoo, sit back, and watch the show.

Need to Know

Rules and regulations

Any and all anglers over the age of 16 will need to have a saltwater fishing license with them. If you’ve booked a trip with a charter operator, they will take care of all licenses for you.

Budget

The going rate for an inshore/nearshore charter in Little River is around $100 per hour. It will vary depending on how many people are going fishing and what kind of boat you’re after, but not by much. Offshore trips are more expensive, mainly due to much more fuel being spent on outings to the bluewater. Entry-level offshore trips hover on the $1200 mark, but be prepared to spend as much as $1800 for a stay at the Continental Shelf.

Directions

Little River itself is less than two miles away from the border with North Carolina. Highway 17 goes straight through the town and is your main route from both east and west. Hwy 17 runs right next to Grand Strand Airport in Atlantic Beach, some 10 miles away from Little River.

Anglers visiting Little River can look forward to some big fish, be it inshore or offshore. Come on down and see for yourself. And stick around for the festivals afterwards!

January

So what if it’s a bit cold, the fishing is amazing! You can either stalk Redfish and Trout inshore, or go a bit further out after the bottom feeders.

February

Deep sea fishing season is right around the corner, but we suggest spending February inshore for the best angling experience in Little River.

March

The offshore fishing craze has finally landed in Little River, rejoice! Whether it’s feisty pelagics or delicious bottom feeders, it’s gonna be a fun ride.

April

As the weeks go on, the offshore bite keeps getting better and better. Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and Kingfish are just some of the species you can catch.

May

Mid-May is time for Little River’s annual Blue Crab Festival. Bring the whole family down for two day of pure fun! You can also get a bunch of Redfish inshore if you’re game.

June

Summer is here in full force, and so are the sportfishing opportunities it brings with it. You feel like you can best a Sailfish? There’s no time like the present!

July

The offshore bonanza continues, with Little River being as lively as ever. Join in on the fun and see if you can break a personal record or two.

August

August might be a good time for a slight change of pace angling-wise. Take a quick trip to the inshore waters and reel in loads of Redfish and Trout.

September

Expect some rock-solid fishing wherever you decide to cast your line. From the backwater shallows to the Gulf and Beyond, everyone’s a winner!

October

Bull Redfish should be moving into the inlets around October. Offshore fishing is still holding up, but this is your last chance to go after that Marlin.

November

As the temperatures drop, the local anglers will turn their focus to inshore fishing in the more shallow waters. Redfish and Seatrout are the main targets now.

December

The year is drawing to a close, but fishing in Little River is as lively as ever. Black Drum, Redfish, Bluefish, and many more will make for a fun day on the water.

I would recommend that anglers check the fishing season. We realized after we booked the charter that what we were fishing for was not in season. We are inexperienced anglers so we really didn’t expect to catch many fish anyway!I would also recommend that they check the reviews before booking. One of the reasons we chose Captain Lee was due to the positive reviews that he received.

It can be a bit rough on the way out tk the ocean on certain days. I'm out on my bass boat all the time so I don't get motion sickness but some people might. Id advise to get some dramamine or some sort of motion sickness medication if you've never been in rough water before

Captain Brandon was great! Very professional, friendly and did a great job of moving to different spots if we weren’t getting bites. We caught some keeper flounders and some nice bull reds. This trip was with a few old college buddies but I’m confident he’d be a great captain for a family outing with younger kids too. We’ll be using him again!

I did a 6 hour trip that included fly casting for Spanish Mackerel, near shore reef fishing, going after speckled trout in the Little River and finished the day with the biggest Red Drum I've ever caught (and of course the giant that got away!) Thanks for pulling out all the stops. I'll be back. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

We're sorry we didn't get to meet Captain Mark, but we really enjoyed working with Captain Bryan. He was very experienced at captaining charter fishing trips, very engaging, and enjoyable to be with. He kept us fully equipped and ready to fish, and relate very well with everyone, from our five-year old to adults of varying ages.
