Standing out in one of America’s favorite tourist hubs isn’t easy. But Myrtle Beach fishing charters are here to show you that the action at sea is just as packed as it is on dry land. Part of South Carolina’s “Grand Strand,” Myrtle Beach is surrounded by waterways teeming with all sorts of fish. With the Intracoastal Waterway on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other, you’ll have plenty to explore.
 
Variety is the name of the game in these waters. Topping the list is Red Drum, a year-round staple among inshore fishers. The endless web of bays, sounds, and inlets also holds Speckled Trout, Flounder, Black Drum, and Pompano. And then there’s Tarpon. Known for their fighting prowess, these guys will put you to the test. To catch the “Silver King,” you’ll be visiting hotspots like Pawleys Island, some 20 miles from the city. 
 
Nearshore fishing trips are all about Spanish Mackerel and Cobia. Mostly targeted on four- to six-hour trips, these action-packed charters will take you to spots like the Jim Caudle artificial reef. Shark fishing charters are also six-hour outings, but they usually take place in the evening.
 
Want to catch the biggest fish around? Myrtle Beach offshore fishing charters have you covered. Taking you over 40 miles out to the Gulf Stream, these trips will have you battling some of the ocean’s fiercest fish. You’ll be spending anywhere from 8 –12 hours at sea, wrestling the likes of Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Sailfish, and Tuna! 
 
You can find experienced guides in a number of towns in the area. Depending on your budget and the type of experience you’re after, you can plan your outing around an exact boat type, trip duration, and targeted species. Keep in mind that most offshore fishing charters choose to depart from the nearby towns of Murrells Inlet and North Myrtle Beach.

Rules & Regulations

Anglers age 16 and older must purchase a recreational fishing license, unless they're fishing on a licensed public pier or on a licensed charter vessel. For most species, the fishing season is open year-round. However, the Red Drum season is only open from December through February.

January

Cold weather does not mean bad fishing in Myrtle Beach - far from it! Stalk large schools of Redfish in the shallow mud flats as they warm themselves in the mud. Offshore, troll for Wahoo or target Grouper over reefs and wrecks.

February

Target Redfish in the flats, working bait slowly along the bottom to attract lethargic fish. Offshore, Wahoo remains great, with the South Carolina Wahoo series attracting competition through mid-April.

March

The transition to spring begins, with the month beginning wintery before gradualy warming up. Black Drum begin to show in tidal creeks for great light tackle action, with Bluefish biting well off the coast. River fishing also heats up.

April

April sees the days get longer and the water temperatures rise. The fish start to move to the sounds, inlets, and nearshore wrecks, with Flounder beginning to bite very well. Nearshore, look out for Cobia.

May

May is peak Cobia season. Don't miss out on sight fishing just off the surf. Spanish Mackerel is schooling nearshore, Spadefish settle in on nearshore reefs, and Mahi Mahi and Blackfin Tuna are caught offshore.

June

Myrtle Beach's peak visitor season starts: book your charter well in advance. Tarpon starts to appear, Trout fishing gets very good, Spanish Mackerel school around inlets, and Spadefish and Flounder are found on nearshore reefs. 

July

Water temperature reaches an average of 87 degrees, attracting greater numbers of Tarpon towards the end of the month. Enjoy sight fishing along the beaches for Blacktip Sharks or heading offshore for Mahi and Tuna.

August

As BBQ season is well and truly underway, target Speckled Trout and large Flounder for a fish-fry. Expect to see Bull Redfish being caught off the jetties later in the month, with Tarpon biting well off the beaches.

September

As the vacation season winds down, the fishing remains hot. Spanish Mackerel continue to school around the tidelines, while Black Drum are biting well in the back creeks. 

October

As the weather starts to transition to Fall, Myrtle Beach sees good catches of Bull Redfish as they move in to spawn along the beaches and inlets, chasing large schools of mullet. Tarpon season comes to an end.

November

Water temperatures drop and Redfish move into the shallow marshes to the south of Myrtle Beach. Sheepshead are fun to catch near pier pilings, while Grouper fishing heats up offshore. 

December

Don't let winter put you off: December is still a great time to fish Myrtle Beach. Target huge schools of Redfish on the flats, as well as Stripers and Speckled Trout around creek mouths to the north.

I would wait til the end of April due to the degrees of the ocean. You would get more fish with a 68 degree water temp. But it's still fun and you still catch the fish.

Make sure it's been warm for the last couple days. Otherwise the fish will be shocked from a cold day and not want to bite.

I learned that fishing in Myrtle is probably best if you do it in mid to late September with an emphasis on October. I was able to catch fish and I think you will during anytime of the year(especially August). I am too new to this to give any other advise as this is what I was told by more qualified people.

Depending upon the April water temperatures, you will need to decide on whether off shore fishing or Gulf Stream fishing will give you the best chance of getting on the fish. Murrells Inlet has excellent marinas to base your trip out of.

You don't need to go far offshore to start catching big fish. Our captain took us 3 miles out and we always had fish on the line...several times we were reeling in two fish at a time.

How with a knowledgeable capt. Some charters take you out and shark fish, while it can be fun at times, these guys who have fished the local reefs and back bays are the way to go.

We truly enjoyed our experience with Bevan. We chose this outing to celebrate our 30th anniversary, and it was beyond our expectations. We fished inland, and later by the jetty. The fish bit a little, and then when we moved, they bit and we caught! He is patient, knowledgeable, and did everything we needed to make this a time to remember. Cheers to another 30 years, and hats off to Capt. Bevan.

Day started pretty rough, big seas getting out there and only one tuna caught while trolling. Then Captain Jason and Mate Austin put us on the the fish at the bottom! Five life long friends that wanted memories and that's what we had... incredible experience!! Highly recommend this boat and crew, top notch! If we go again we would skip the trolling and go bottom fishing only.

If you are sleeping on Captain Jerry, well then you are missing out. We work hard and play even harder and Captain Jerry delivered. We caught 8 to 10 different species of fish and it was non-stop action. This was by far the absolute best experience we’ve had fishing. We will back and Captain Jerry’s will be who we fish with. Thanks again for a great experience and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Captain Jerry is great. He was so accommodating and where he took us, in the bay, was SO much better than possibly heaving over the side on the open ocean. Rods were lighter and it was a successful trip. The fish in the pictures were too big to keep but we still caught 2 keepers. Totally exhausted afterwards so veged out and ate pizza for dinner. This evening's meal will be yesterday's catch, going on the grill. 😋

Bevan did all he could to make it a great day for us. If the fish weren't biting, he took us to a new place, and made sure we caught some giant fish before leaving. He was even gracious when I slipped on the dock and he stopped me from falling in and ended up falling in himself! 10 out of 10 recommend Bevan!
