Went fishing with Fish Hook II Charters on May 8, 2019
We actually went out of Little River. My wife was a bit hesitant to make the trip, as she became sick many years ago on a boat. Our trip was on Fish Hook II, which was a great size for our group and is a perfect size for a family, including children. The wife did great and was very happy with the trip. Everyone enjoyed the trip. I took a trip with one of my daughter's about 5 years ago. The boat was over crowded, exhaust fumes were bad, and my daughter got sick. I did extra research this time to ensure we didn't have a similar experience. This is how I found Fish Hook II and it was an excellent choice for us. This was the first trip for 3 of our party, and a first time fishing (of any kind) for one. We all had a wonderful time and I would highly recommend this boat and the experience to anyone considering a fishing trip.

If you want to go for the experience of catching fish go to a party boat because it is less expensive and you catch the same small fish that have to be released. If you want to catch game fish go somewhere else. If you want to cook your catch, buy them at a fish market!

Find out when is the best time to come fish in the area and when is good for what you want to catch. And book a full day instead of half a day so you can go farther out and have better chance of catching more and bigger fish

Check the weather! If you're doing the charter talk with the captain about your time slot. If he's any good he'll tell you how the water is and how the fish are biting. Then have you make the choice.

Just book something. Weather is great, guides will put you on fish. Day after day of sun, sand, pool time gets boring. Book a fishing trip for something picture worthy. Facebook needs more fish pics, not more beach pics!!

I have taken some early trips like April and early May the weather is always a factor but June seems to have calmer waves and warmer water my luck was much improved to wait for some June Sunshine to make the fish more active but any day of fishing is better than a day of work or sitting in your hotel watching Oprah!!

If you are fine with just dinging some black sea bass all day, the half day or full day are fine (and fun). At least in May, if you want to get on something bigger, like Mahi Mahi or Tuna, you need to book a Gulf Stream trip.

We recommend anglers in the North Myrtle Beach area for the first time hook up with an experienced, successful Captain like Lee Barker. He has the talent and the know how to make your trip memorable. I know ours will be.

Come during the fall when it's not so hot and the bigger fish are moving closer to shore as the water cools down.

I would take the full day trip next time for the chance to catch the bigger fish.

Because it is hot and the water is warm, fishing success is spotty. Even with this, we caught fish and enjoyed the act of fishing. Sometimes it's the journey, not the destination, that matters.

Try the charters, like this one! It is a great experience! Lots of fun and you get more personal attention then on bigger boats!

Make sure and take dramamine no matter your boat experience. Wouldn't want to ruin the trip by taking a chance.

Was glad I went with Fish Hook. If you get seasick wear a sea band and take a Bonine an hour before. Bring water or soda.

I'd reccomend Fish Hooked III, Captain Richard and first mate Oscar. They were a great combo and worked hard on putting us on the fish. Great experience for me and my family.

Half Day Reddish inshore. If you have time and are looking for an experience take an off shore trip and just take it in.

I would definitely book with Captain Cush, but I wouldn’t do a whole day for the first time. It was fun, but I would start with a half day first!

It was a VERY hot day. Make sure you bring plenty of sun block and water. And take Dramamine, even just as a precaution!

Call your captain a day or two ahead for an updated weather report as the ocean can get rough.
