Top Fishing Charters in Myrtle Beach

If you’re fishing for something to do with the family out on the water, get hooked on one of the Myrtle Beach fishing charters that we recommend (out of the schools of charters available) in our coastal area.

Fishing is something our strip of the coast was born to offer visitors. It’s a great way to learn more about the species of inshore and offshore fish that are swimming in our natural water habitats, as well as the excitement of the sport of Myrtle Beach fishing. Plus, it’s a great way to spend time with your kids aboard a vessel that will take you on miles of adventures.

You can usually choose from inshore, offshore, gulfstream, and even a few shark fishing charters. Charter fishing is the best way to reel in more one-on-one guidance and tips from fishing experts who know where the fish are. And this is what you may catch, depending on the charter you choose:

-Inshore fishing: You’ll be in low or high tide flats and most likely spot Spanish mackerel, bluefish, trout, redfish, flounder and sharks found in the backwater creek and jetty fishing.

-Offshore fishing: These longer deep sea fishing trips in Myrtle Beach will take you up to 45 miles out into the Atlantic for 8 or 10 hours to target bigger snapper, grouper, triggerfish, black sea bass, mahi-mahi, sharks, wahoo, tuna and amberjacks in depths of at least 30 meters. Some offshore charters will even ride out 50-plus miles to the Gulfstream.

Once you decide on the distance you want to go, here are a handful of fishing charters we know will help you reel in just what you need:

Marlin Quay Marina

Jones’n Charter Boats

You’ll depart from Marlin Quay Marina in Murrells Inlet aboard a 36-foot express Sportfish that’s built to go the distance, specializing only in offshore and Gulfstream trolling fishing charters.
