If you’ve haven’t ever been on a fishing charter you have to add it to your “Must Do On This Year’s Vacation” list. This time of year people are pulling some pretty big catches out of the ocean and we can assure you it’s one of those memories you will never forget. We’ve chosen five awesome Myrtle Beach fishing charters that would be happy to take you inshore or offshore fishing by the day, half day or extended day. All of these are just a short drive from where you’re staying at Inlet Sports Lodge. Many of these companies also offer cruises for those who don’t fish.
The deep waters of the Atlantic Ocean, just off the coast of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, make for some great fishing and provides the perfect opportunity to snag the big one. Many anglers choose the Myrtle Beach area for its abundance of fishing species that include marlin, grouper, snapper, black sea bass, trigger, king mackerel, and shark. There have been many trophy size fish pulled from these waters and it could happen to you! Because of the abundance of the fish population, fishing charters are available any time of the year, including during the winter months.
