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!

Be patient. I had doubts about catching anything due to the weather, very windy. Sometimes nothing can be caught. Lucky we hit a couple. Not the charter boat captains fault if nothing is biting!

This is surf fishing and that takes a lot of work to get the lines far enough out for quality catches. The captain used a kayak to drop the lines at a great spot.

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.

I will, definitely recommend this trip for anyone who wants to go fishing. However, I would say if you have small children, tell the Captain you want to stay in calmer waters.

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.

We had a great time with Tyler and Randy. They worked hard to find us some fish and they were successful. After a cool start we ended up getting into the flounder. The boat and equipment were very nice and the crew even took some time to educate us about some jelly fish and puffer fish that we boated. Also, fresh flounder makes for great fish tacos.

First time inshore fishing and learned a lot! Guy knows the waters and has a ton of experience! Also gave great advice about properties in the area as we are relocating to MB in June. I didn’t catch anything but my wife and cousins did. Was very cold but that’s out of our control as it is winter and we didn’t prepare well for the weather! Would recommend this guide for sure!

Capt. Hunter was awesome with myself and my two boys. Ages 8 and 13. He taught them how to cast and we caught some fish. The weather with the wind was not the most ideal conditions. The communication and follow up with Sharon was great and she was upfront about the conditions. We will be back in late May and look forward to being out in the ocean and getting on more fish!!!

Captain Jeff put us on all types of fish traveling to multiple locations to make the most of our time. He is not only experienced but one of the most professional and social captains I’ve ever been out with. The conversation and the knowledge sharing never stopped and we probably put 40 fish on the boat with 13 different species and had enough keepers to have an excellent meal for six
