Set back and enjoy the ride out. Be prepared for some tired arms. Reeling those big fish in one after the other will leave you exhausted. Captain Watson has one of the best attitudes. Very professional. You won’t be disappointed!!!

Dependent on your experience, Fishing qualities I wouldn’t go to Little River unless I knew upfront what can be caught what can be kept and what we are fishing for what we would like to fish for even though I knew what I wanted to do when I got there everything was out of season and I came to River for the past 17 years 18 years. Everything was in season Have changed and this need to be shared with public or possible angles in the future

Definitely research the charter Captain and be specific to what your style of fishing is. Ask about fishing tackle and equipment. Do they use a power pole and an anchor lock trolling motor, types of rods and lures and or bait. Ask how they work through locating target fish, especially when they are hard to find. There is a reason charters cost a lot of money, it's supposed to be because your Captain knows how to bring home fish and if he doesn't, you're getting took.

What a great experience! Our grandson caught just about every fish and he couldn’t have had more fun! Capt J was so great! He took care of our needs and was able to adapt the trip to our enjoyment! Leah, his 1st Mate, was so helpful! They were both incredible! We would definitely recommend the trip to others and will be sure to call on him again when we return to Myrtle Beach! A definite 5-star trip!!!

Make sure the captain is fair and truthful that will give you the trip you paid for and take you out to where you payed to fish. Make sure the boat has everything you require for your trip. Learn the boat rules and enjoy. Little River area has so many places to catch your target fish. Check with the news as to what fish are active in given months I would recommend fishing Little River but only with a honest captain that will give you the trip of a lifetime that you paid for. It was just a shame that we did not get the trip we paid @,200.00 total for a 13 hour boat trip and only 2 hours of fishing time.

Two in our group were experienced Lake fishers, I am a total novice and I was complete comfortable. Captain Mike will help you and you can do as much or little as you are comfortable with. Definitely recommend this charter.

It can be a bit rough on the way out tk the ocean on certain days. I'm out on my bass boat all the time so I don't get motion sickness but some people might. Id advise to get some dramamine or some sort of motion sickness medication if you've never been in rough water before

As before, water was very hot so we were limited on the different fish species to catch at this time of year. State regulations did not allow us to keep any of our catch.

Early is on time and on time is late! Ensure you communicate with your captain through the app ahead of time. Our captain returned all messages promptly and professionally

Go on a head boat if you want to catch a variety of fish. The only thing you will catch is a shark on these small boats !

Take something for seasickness before going. Experienced that myself a little before the end of trip. Otherwise it was a fantastic day of fishing.

Ask the Captain what is biting and take recommendations on your trip to catch fish. Every area is unique to catch certain species at certain times.

3.5 stars is more accurate. Would have been 5 stars if we would have actually been put on fish and been able to catch more than 4 fish in 8 hours. The crew was friendly and the boat was clean.

Bring your camera and cooler, relax and have a wonderful adventure. Randy and Ben will take care of the rest and hopefully the fish will cooperate.

Check your weather report to make sure the seas are not going to be too choppy. Also, make sure that you're not in a transition season for the fish.

Book as soon as you can, and talk with your Captain. If it is your first time out on a charter they can provide you with the best information possible for your trip.

If you’re thinking about taking the half day or 3/4 day, go with the next longer trip. It’s worth it.

Excellent Captain. A little too warm to catch the type and the amount of fish we intended to catch. Not the captain's fault. We may go back when it is cooler.

Read many reviews, be willing to be flexible because it can get pretty choppy on the day you planned to go out of the intracoastal.
