What anglers said about fishing in Holden Beach

Be prepared to see a lot of sea motion sickness! But crew is quick to clean up any mess. Crew request you to lean over and release the sickness over the water.
Very good

Be patient, everyone expects to bring a bunch of whales in and they don't realize this is fishing. We caught a lot of fish, not a lot of keepers but had a great time. I don't think you can get any more for your money with this group, crew was awesome and the Captain was great.

Action will depend upon the weather. Warmer days will bring more fish so if it is cold adjust your expectation accordingly. But remember that even a "bad" day fishing is great!

It's was a bit chilly but expected for February. Take motion sickness medication if you are in doubt.

Manage your expectations about the fish - we didn't catch anything larger than about 12 lbs. That said, we had a great time on the water and our family loved the experience.

Ask the captian if what you are targeting is biting, if it is not ask him/her what is. In any case the scenary will be great.

Even on a cloudy and cool afternoon, we had a blast. Dress in layers, just in case, and enjoy the great outdoors!

Be aware there is not a whole lot of biodiversity closer to shore in May so the shorter trips are going to be limited in what's available to catch.

The half day trip is perfect for first timers. The morning trip will avoid the hot July sun and sea breezes that arrive in the pm.

We had an exceptionally hot week but as BHI owners I can say that heat index over 100 is uncommon.
