Fishing in North Myrtle Beach

Anglers aboard North Myrtle Beach fishing charters are among the luckiest on the East Coast. As a top tourist destination on the Grand Strand, North Myrtle Beach gives you access to excellent sportfishing. Whether you’re in the market for some inshore family fun, or a high-speed chase through the Gulf Stream, chances are you’ll catch your fill around here.
The backwater creeks and inlets of North Myrtle Beach host a variety of inshore fish. Here you can target Black and Red Drum, Spotted Seatrout, and Flounder. Even in winter, you can have great success casting in these shallows.
Out in the ocean, you can find yourself fishing for Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, Barracuda, and Sharks. Such nearshore trips normally stay within 10 miles of shore, and last up to six hours.
If you’re looking for a bigger challenge, North Myrtle Beach boasts a range of offshore fishing charters. These outings will take you 30– 50 miles out, to the bountiful waters of the Gulf Stream. These trips last  anywhere from 8–12 hours at sea, but the effort can pay off big time. You’ll have everything from Snappers and Jacks, to Cobia and Mahi, to Kingfish, Sailfish, and Wahoo, right at the tip of your rod.
North Myrtle Beach is home to some of the best inshore fishing charters on the Grand Strand. However, if you happen to strike out on available captains, check out the nearby town of Little River.

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.

Close to shore you can continue fishing for Redfish, Speckled Trout, Sheepshead, and Black Seabass. You might find a captain or two who is ready to help you try your luck offshore. 


Deep sea fishing is starting to reach its peak season. You can head offshore and target large bottom fish or feisty pelagic trophies. Inshore fishing is picking up momentum, as well. 


Your chances of catching a Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Kingfish, or Tuna will keep getting better from here. You can also enjoy great inshore for a variety of species such as Flounder, Black Drum, and Sharks. 


May is a great time to be on the water in North Myrtle Beach! Whether you fish inshore for Redfish and Speckled Trout or venture out to the Blue Water, you are likely to bring home a great catch.

The fishing is still great no matter where you go, from the backwaters to the Blue Water and everywhere in between. Just be sure to keep an eye out for hurricane season.
