Inshore Fishing in North Myrtle Beach

Inshore fishing in North Myrtle Beach is a pastime for all seasons. This adventure might take you through intracoastal waterways, backwater streams, or out into the Atlantic Ocean. Inshore, the waters are calm and many sought-after species are biting year-round. Anglers of any age or skill level can enjoy this style of fishing, from the lifelong fisherman to wonder-eyed child casting lines for the very first time.

What to Catch and When to Target it

You will find a wide variety of species swimming inshore, including Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Black Seabass, and several kinds of sharks. Black Drum, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Sharks, and Cobia tend to flock to the inlet jetties, while Redfish, Flounder, and Speckled Trout are found in large numbers further inshore.

Autumn is considered the best time for inshore fishing in North Myrtle Beach, when large Redfish flock follow schools of Mullet into the inlets and rivers. You will find Stripers in the creek mouths from Fall through mid winter, as well. You can enjoy fishing for Redfish, Sheepshead, and Speckled Trout through winter, even when other species are scarce. Flounder arrives in spring and will stick around until late fall.

Fishing between April and October gives you a chance to catch as many different species as possible, since almost all of them are biting through the summer. For an especially hard-fighting catch, you can enjoy fishing for a variety of sharks from May through October, when many of them are preoccupied with large numbers of baitfish near the jetties.

How to Fish

Anglers in North Myrtle Beach enjoy fishing for many of these species with light tackle. Common techniques include spinning, drift fishing, and live bait fishing for Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder. You can bottom fish for Seabass and certain Shark species, in addition to trolling for Sharks, Spanish Mackerel, and Bonito. More experienced anglers target some species like Cobia and Redfish by sight fishing. You can also target many species on fly.

What can I expect on an inshore charter?

You will find many North Myrtle Beach fishing charters to choose from, and every captain strives to provide a unique inshore fishing experience. Prices vary depending on where you plan to fish and how long you want to stay there.

Half day inshore charters last four or five hours. Some of these charters focus on hunting for Redfish, Flounder, and Speckled Trout in the backwaters, while others will take you to the inlet jetties or just off the beach. You can expect to pay between $350 and $500.

Six hour trips usually cost around $600 while full day trips are $700-$750. Most North Myrtle Beach fishing guides provide a saltwater fishing license, tackle, and bait. Many will also offer to clean and fillet any eating fish that you catch.

What anglers said about Inshore Fishing in North Myrtle Beach

Always go out in the ocean with an open mind. It’s not always going to be a perfect catch but keep trying. My captain was Brandon and the first mate was Holden. Ask for them they are professional and treat you great.

I found that some of the best fishing captains and outfits don't have a big flashy website and it don't need to wow you with flashy advertisements.

Spend a full day fishing, it takes about 45-60 minutes to get from the marina to the good ocean spots! Weather was good and only slightly windy.

Small charters are the way to go. Don't reserve a charter that takes 20+ people at once. Our boat took 6 people and it was perfect. If you're looking to catch the big stuff, reserve a full day trip to get out far enough on the ocean, and take 6 people because there's a limit to how many fish each person can keep.

We happened to get a choppy day when nothing was biting. But I have no idea if that's an accurate reflection of April or just an accurate reflection on fishing in general!

The water was glassy, winds fairly calm. By noon the temperature started to climb so I suggest you head out early to avoid the high heat.

Short trips can't go out as far. Spending a little more to go on the 1/2 day even the full day trips are better for the more experienced fisherman. Short trips are great for the kids to learn and get used to the boating experience.
