Fishing with Kids in Myrtle Beach

Fishing is a great activity to create lasting family memories. And if you are planning a trip with kids to Myrtle Beach, then a fishing charter with Crazy Sister Marina should be added to your list of things to do. Myrtle Beach is well known for great fishing, and your child will delight in the thrill of reeling in a flounder, speckled sea trout, black drum, redfish, triggerfish, or even mahi-mahi. There are many great fish you can catch in Myrtle Beach, so why not see if fishing with your kids will turn into catching?

What You Should Know About Fishing With Kids in Myrtle Beach

Before heading out on any fishing charter with kids, there are a few things you should know. After all, it can be a long day out on the water. So, the better prepared you and your kid are, the more enjoyable the experience will be.

Wear clothing appropriate for fishing

The first bit of guidance we can provide is on what to wear when fishing in Myrtle Beach. We suggest that you and your child bring a long-sleeved t-shirt and windbreaker but that you wear a short-sleeved t-shirt if the weather permits. The conditions on the water can be a bit chillier than on land, and you may want to dress in layers to ensure you are comfortable. Also, be sure to wear tennis shoes and leave the sandals and flip-flops back at the hotel or home. Finally, don’t forget sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses.

Consider sea bands, Ginger gum, or Dramamine if seasickness is a concern

If your child has never been out on the open water before, you may be wondering how they will tolerate the waves. If you are concerned about potential seasickness, consider getting sea bands to put on your child’s wrists. Sea bands apply pressure in just the right spot and can help keep nausea away. Ginger gum and Dramamine can also help but be prepared that Dramamine may make your child a bit sleepy.

Talk to your child about what to expect on the fishing excursion

Though we do our best to help all of our guests reel in the big one or at least something that will provide a good fishing story, fishing is not always catching. So, be sure to talk to your child about what to expect before heading out on the water. Discuss expectations for safety and make sure they know what they are in for. The more your child is in the know, the more they’ll feel like they’re part of the action, and they’ll know what to do.

Bring your camera and prepare to make some memories

Though today’s mobile devices serve as great cameras, be sure you have something to take pictures with no matter what you bring. If your child does indeed catch the big one or even the small one for that matter, the experience is sure to be photo-worthy. So, teach your child the lore of a great fishing story, and catch some photos to create their own. You’ll be glad to have the experience documented so that you can reflect on it for years to come.
