The numerous estuaries, creeks, and the Intracoastal Waterway offer serene and fruitful fishing spots, perfectly complementing the thrill of deep-sea ventures.

So, where should you start?

We’ve created this helpful guide showcasing the best fishing charters in North Myrtle Beach and included some useful tips to help you make the most of your trip.

Choosing the best time to book a fishing charter in NMB depends on several factors. While fishing is good year-round on the Grand Strand, you’ll want to consider what type of fish you are hoping to catch and what your ideal fishing conditions are.

Spring and fall are typically prime seasons in the area. Temperatures tend to be mild, and a diverse range of fish are active both inshore and offshore.

Summer and winter are less popular fishing seasons due to more adverse weather conditions.

However, both these seasons can still reward anglers with prize game fish.

  • Wide-brimmed hat

  • Polarized sunglasses

  • Rain gear or poncho (in case you come across bad weather)

  • Motion sickness medication

  • Small first aid kit

  • Hand sanitizer and wet wipes

  • Plenty of water

  • Gear & light tackle (while many charters provide equipment, you may want to pack your favorite equipment)
