The most popular fish species you can target are Redfish, King Mackerel (Kingfish), and Flounder. Top fishing techniques include Bottom Fishing, Light Tackle, and Trolling. Nearshore fishing, inshore fishing, and reef fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Looking to escape the everyday hustle and bustle and catch some fish while you’re at it? Then visit Murrells Inlet – a beautiful village that has fishing running through its veins. The area features some of the finest inshore fishing on the East Coast, as well as incredible deep sea opportunities. Thanks to this, Murrells Inlet fishing charters offer endless adventures.

This stretch of the Grand Strand features numerous creeks, shallow waters, and jetties, all teeming with fish. Fishing inshore, you’ll be hooking into beautiful Red Drum, delicious Flounder, as well as Black Drum, Speckled Trout, and more.

If you head a few miles out from the coast, you can do some reef fishing. These waters are a habitat for tasty species such as Black Seabass and Sheepshead. During summer, you’ll also find King and Spanish Mackerel prowling fairly close to shore.

For hardcore anglers, the Gulf Stream is where deep sea fishing dreams come true. During winter, giant Bluefin Tuna make their way through these waters. Once summer hits, you’ll have the chance to fish for Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and other pelagics. Just make sure you’re ready for the ride, as you’ll have to travel around 60 miles offshore.

Many charter captains like to pick up their clients at the public boat ramp in Murrells Inlet, with Marlin Quay Marina being another popular meetup spot. Half day trips will give you plenty of inshore and nearshore action, while offshore trips will require more time.

Rules & Regulations

If you’re fishing aboard a charter, you won’t need to worry about getting a license. Otherwise, anglers over the age of 16 will need a permit, unless you’re fishing from a licensed pier. You’ll need a freshwater license if you plan on fishing the Waccamaw River.

January

New Year's fishing kicks off in Murrells Inlet with what is usually a steady inshore bite. Speckled Trout, Redfish, and Black Drum are the name of the game. Offshore, the Bluefin Tuna bite is on fire.

February

This is the coldest month in Murrells Inlet, but what better way to warm up than fighting with a Redfish or Speckled Trout? Black Drum and Sheepshead are caught on the reefs, and Wahoo is going strong 60 miles out.

March

Redfish are feeding as bait becomes more abundant. Sight fish for them in shallow water. Offshore fishing can be windy but Wahoo and Blackfin Tuna are great targets when conditions allow.

April

Springtime marks the season to target delicious Flounder. With more baitfish close to shore, you’ll also find schooling Redfish, as well as Speckled Trout, and Black Drum.

May

The Shark bite gets serious, making this a good time to catch a big fish in shallow waters. Look for Spanish Mackerel nearshore or make the most of the excellent Flounder bite inshore.

June

During summer, the fishing is excellent inshore, nearshore, and offshore. The warm waters attract a large number of species, including Spanish Mackerel, Black Drum, Spadefish, and more.

July

This is the month to catch pretty much every game fish that calls the waters of Murrells Inlet home. Look for Tripletail hiding under structure. Or fish for King Mackerel just a few miles offshore.

August

The excellent summer bite continues, with Amberjack and King Mackerel lurking around the reefs. This is the peak time to get out on the water, with warm temperatures and favorable conditions.

September

With crowds thinning out, this is a great time to check out the Murrells Inlet Marsh Walk. Temperatures remain warm and the Redfish bite starts to get serious inshore.

October

If you’re a fan of panfish, now is the time to fish in Murrells Inlet. This is the peak of the area's famous Spot fishery. Inshore, Redfish, Black Drum, and Trout are on fire.

November

As the waters cool, the fishing also changes. Bull Redfish and Trout are feeding up for winter and devouring shrimp, as well as artificial bait. Black Drum are also bottom feeding.

December

Gear up for the holiday season by seeking out Redfish near oyster bars and creeks, as well as over seagrass beds. Look for Trout around creek mouths or head out to the Gulf Stream to fish for Tuna!

We've taken numerous charters and have to say Capt Jack is great! He got us on flounder and redifsh ten minutes into the trip and stayed on them throughout, even through high winds and partial slack tide. He gave us some great info on rigging and where to get on the fish no matter what the tide was doing. I recommend him highly. We'll be in touch with him again next year. :-) Tim B.

The weather can be hit and miss from one day to the next and the temperatures can slow the bite, a longer trip will allow time to get out further and get to cooler waters which will increase the bite.

Mid summer is hot and unpredictable. Fish are going to be where the bait is at and in the right temperature of water. Nothing is guaranteed, but any day on the water is a great day.

Jimmy our captain busted his butt to find us fish. Unfortunately the NE wind and full moon high tide, my opinion not Jimmy’s, were just not in our favor. We caught several small fish, (2 keepers) and the boys, which Jimmy did great with caught most of the fish. I was very happy with Jimmy. Great personality and great with the boys who were 15-12.

We had six people fishing. The weather was nice but the sea was a little rough. As with any charter there are some things that you just can’t control. What could be controlled was handled extremely well. The equipment was nice and the captain was very helpful. We were all able to catch fish and had a wonderful time. As a group we would recommend this charter for anyone. We plan on booking with them again in the future. We booked a 1/2 day trip but would suggest a full day.
