Murrells Inlet Fishing Charters

Murrells Inlet is just that – an inlet. Not technically on the Atlantic Coast, this area of the Palmetto State is surrounded by water and known as a fishing town.

On the west side is the Waccamaw River, and to the east are the barrier islands and Murrells Inlet system. Both provide fantastic fishing opportunities, and prove why this unique place is all about rods and reels.

Well… maybe not all about rods and reels. There is more to do than fishing in Murrells Inlet. Visitors can enjoy shopping, hitting the links at the nearby golf courses, and checking out the unique small town shops and restaurants along the coast.  Or just sit back and relax, enjoy the calm that comes from staying on the inlet.

Fishing Murrells Inlet

“Calm” is the key word when it comes to fishing around Murrells Inlet. Whether you fish the Waccamaw River or the inlet itself, the waters are much calmer compared to the ocean. This is perfect for families with young kids or novice anglers. You’ll also see more action on the calmer waters, with many more casts than compared to offshore charters.

The Waccamaw River is a freshwater option for fishermen and women in Murrells Inlet. Here you can catch catfish, crappie, bream, and largemouth bass. The river is the entry point into the Waccamaw National Wildlife Refuge, an almost 50,000 acre habitat for many fish and wildlife.  Anglers will need to go off the beaten path to find good fishing grounds. Hiring a local Murrells Inlet guide will greatly increase your success rates for hooking your next bucket mouth.

Outdoor enthusiasts can also enjoy fishing near the jetties of Murrells Inlet. Where the water is shallow is the perfect spot to find your baitfish. You can use a net or small hook to get a few fish for the day’s adventure. Shrimp, crab, and small panfish are food for the bigger inshore fish such as sheepshead, redfish, trout, and flounder. Once you have the bait, you can go for the bigger trophy catches. Just be very careful when walking in and around the jetties, as they can become very slick and dangerous to walk near. Exercise extreme caution when fishing this part of Murrells Inlet.

Or you can hire a local Murrells Inlet fishing guide for your inshore excursion. These captains fish the area twelve months of the year, and can take you on their vessel to the hot spots. You’ll have rods bending in no time at all. This is another great option for families with young children or novice anglers. The guide takes care of everything you need, and can teach you a few tricks of the trade. Then you can remember these tips and have a successful day of fishing when you’re fishing on your own again.

Kayak fishing is a popular technique throughout Murrells Inlet. Whether you’re freshwater fishing or in the inlet waters, you’re sure to see a kayak fisherman or woman. This is a unique way of fishing, with you and all your gear on the kayak. The calmer waters allow for this technique, you’ll just need a lot of arm strength to paddle to the fishing grounds. And most kayak anglers will practice catch-and-release to help sustain the local fish populations.

When fishing the inshore waters of Murrells Inlet, anglers have the opportunity to catch redfish, sea bass, black drum, spotted trout, pompano, bluefish, spanish mackerel, and sharks depending on the season. Make sure you know the regulations for the fish at the end of your line, and whether you’re allowed to harvest it or should release it. Again, your Murrells Inlet guide will know what’s best.

Murrells Inlet Offshore Fishing

If you’re looking for some adrenaline-type fishing: Murrells Inlet offshore fishing is just for you! Out in the Atlantic Ocean are some monster-size species that are schooling and following the food. It’s just a short trip to find them.

Captains in the Murrells Inlet area can travel from 10 to 70 miles off the coast to get the species you’re looking to catch, depending on the season. Reef fish include snapper and grouper, while pelagics include mackerel, tuna, mahi mahi, and wahoo. The technique your captain will use will depend on which type of fish you’re after. No experience is needed when fishing offshore, your captain and first mate will take care of everything. Trips vary from six hours to more than ten hours, depending on what you’re comfortable with. But keep in mind, more time on the water equals more fishing!
