Myrtle Beach Fishing

Charter Fishing & Fishing Piers

Fishing is a fun activity that shouldn't be overlooked when vacationing in the Myrtle Beach area.

Those who regularly enjoy fishing in Myrtle Beach know that some of the largest and most prized fish can be caught off the coast of South Carolina, which is one reason the local fishermen work every month of the year.

In the winters, fishing boat captains and their crew "commercial fish" catching specific types of fish each trip, such as sea bass or grouper, and selling their catches to local restaurants and wholesale distributors.

In warmer weather, and particularly in tourist season, they charter parties and help their guests haul in large catches, who usually take the fish home to their families.

The local fishermen run different types of charters in the Myrtle Beach area, and you should know what type of charter suits you before planning your trip.

There is party boat fishing, taking individuals and large groups out, and there are private charters for the serious fisherman, which usually averages 6 fishermen per boat.

The length of different fishing trips offered by the local fishermen also varies.

For those of you who only want to fish a few hours, you can choose between short half-day trips, usually running 7 am - noon or 1 pm to 6, or you can book with an inshore fisherman, who helps you catch fish in and around the waterway.

If you'd like to fish all day, there are both full day trips, usually running 7 am to 3 pm, and gulf stream trips, usually running 7 am to 6 pm.

Special requests, such as night fishing, are also taken by the local charter fishermen.

The most common fish caught during these trips is black sea bass, snapper, grouper, larger sea bass, trigger, dolphin, wahoo, and king mackerel.

During the height of the tourist season, most private charters are booked several months in advance - at least on the week-end days - so if you'd like to fish during the summer, be sure to reserve your trip as soon as possible.
