Nothing rounds out a Myrtle Beach vacation quite like spending a bit of time fishing. Even if you’re not an advanced fisher, booking a fishing charter is an easy, enjoyable way to spend the day on the water.

Fishing charters are a great way to spend a few hours, or a complete day, sailing the water and fishing for local fish in Murrells Inlet. By booking a Murrells Inlet fishing charter, you don’t have to worry about storage location and fees for your own boat or handling a vessel when you rent. Before you book your fishing charter trip, we have a few things for you to consider to ensure you make the most of you time on the boat.


Type Of Fishing

Do you want to do an inshore trip? Offshore? Shark? Book a party boat? The type of fishing you want to complete will depend on the charter fishing trip you book. If you’re not sure, that’s no problem! The Crazy Sister Marina team is highly experiences in helping vacationers and locals choose the best fishing trip to fit their needs. Just contact our team for information.


Group Size

Are you traveling with extended family or planning a solo trip? The number of people in your party can help you determine which Murrells Inlet fishing charter event will be best. If you have up to six people in your trip and want to book a private adventure, renting The Sea Rake or The Side Kick will work best. If it’s just you and a partner, perhaps the half day Sea Bass fishing trip is ideal.


Trip Duration

How long you plan to be on the water will give you a great starting point for crafting the ideal Murrells Inlet fishing charter. Choose from a 3-hour nearshore ocean fishing adventure or plan to spend 11 hours on the water with the all-day GulfStream fishing trip. Consider your party. If you have young kids, a shorter trip may be in order. If you’re an experienced fisher and love spending time on the water, an all-day adventure makes sense.


Targeted Species

What type of fish would you like to catch on your charter fishing trip? If you have a targeted species in mind, be sure to mention that to our staff so we know we’re booking the correct adventure. Want to reel in a 3-foot shark? An afternoon shark fishing trip is in order. To catch Vermillion Snapper, Grunts, Silver Snapper, Triggerfish, or Black Sea Bass, continental shelf fishing is in order. A GulfStream charter fishing trip will land you Silver Snapper, Grouper, Sharks, Triggerfish, Grunts, and Amberjack.
