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).

Fishing the inlet is great, I'd recommend reading reviews of the charters to ensure they'll match your expectations. Look at the boat type also to make sure it matches your needs.

If you want to go farther offshore, book a longer trip. We booked a 5 hour trip and I am glad I did because 4 hours would have been too short for us!

Come here with an open mind (fishing is heavily dependent upon the weather and specifies caught depends on the time of the year) and bring your reeling muscles. You’re in for a good time and for some, a nice little workout.

Fishing is a hit or miss. Don't expect to get a catch. But do intend to have fun. Catching is a plus. Fish do get off the line. But it its a fun and learning experience.. Every day is different. Just have fun.

We didn’t fish in the inlet but just off the beach. I understand that November & December are best for inlet fishing.
