Deep Sea Fishing in Murrells Inlet

Murrells Inlet deep sea fishing is not what you would call a casual outing. It’s a test to determine an angler’s stamina and persistence. A real feat, even for more experienced fishermen, Murrells Inlet is a rewarding fishery for those that endure the trips 60 miles offshore.

Not that you can’t get some nice game sooner, it’s that once you make it to the gulf stream, a real magic takes place. It’s Tuna and Wahoo near the top water, with Vermillion Snapper, Grunts, and Amberjacks near the bottom.

What can I fish for off Murrells Inlet?

On a full day trip, you will have enough time to head for some offshore trolling and bottom fishing. Around 60 miles from the coast, you can get King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Cobia, Wahoo, and Sharks. Further down, you can jig for Grouper, Triggerfish, Amberjacks, Grunts, Jolt Heads, and Porgies. The waters here are between 150 and 250 ft deep and filled with enticing bait fish coming from the gulf stream.

As for the season, the warmer months entice Snapper and Grouper, as well as ever-frenetic Mahi. By fall, Mahis move far offshore, while the bite opens up for Wahoo who like fighting in cooler waters. Amberjacks are out in the blue water for the most of the year, while Sailfish start showing up as the summer comes to an end and head south.

Where are Murrells Inlet fishing spots?

There are a couple of spots you don’t want to miss. They fish superbly for the most of the year as the warm currents of the gulf stream help prolong the season. Check out the areas where the rip meets the warm currents - the bait will be there, and so will game fish.

The famed Georgetown Hole - the hot pot of ledges and species scattered across a network of fisheries that stretch from 45 to 60 miles east of Murrells Inlet. The Hole runs from east to west for approximately 10 miles and offers great fishing throughout the year. If you want to break the SC Amberjack record, then head there.

You should also check out McDougal Ledge for Wahoo, and the Black Jack Hole for Tuna, Wahoo, and Mahi. The Winyah Scarp holds monster Wahoo and Mahi. If you have the fuel to spend, then head to the Southwest Banks, 160 Fathom Hole, and Ammo Dump (hint: scores of Yellowfin Tuna).

For the shark trip. Expect smaller fish. Only about 40 ft. I am told the full day trip would be better for trying to get deeper and catch bigger fish.

To be fair there were storms south of where we were that made the seas a little rough. So can't give an accurate evaluation.

Bring plenty of water and sunscreen if fishing in July. It was sunny and hot during our trip. Perfect weather day for fishing but you'll want to be prepared so that you can focus on the fish and not the heat.

It started getting hot later in the morning. I am sure that fall or spring fishing would yield more fish

I would recommend an early or late fish. Mid day fishing hasn’t been as productive as the early ones we’ve taken. We booked mid day due to availability.

Take the chance to go further out even in not so calm waters, the fish don’t mind the waves. But when they are there, they are biting.

Tell Captain Dave exactly what your goals are. My goals were for my 7&6 year old to catch fish, and for me to catch a keeper. Captain Dave enabled both goals.

Conditions out to sea didn’t match NOAA predictions or marine reports, so conditions were a little rough and the trip probably would have been rescheduled if the reports reflected actual conditions. That being said there is still good fishing if you’re willing to fish in rougher seas.
