North Myrtle Beach can be found along South Carolina’s Grand Strand. The Grand Strand is a collection of beachfront along the Atlantic coast, which stretches from Georgetown to Myrtle Beach. It is home to exceptional year-round nearshore and inshore fishing. Here’s a quick guide for those who are new to the area and looking to charter a boat to take them fishing.
What is included in a North Myrtle Beach Charter?
There are some things you should look for when choosing a North Myrtle Beach fishing charter company to take you fishing. Your fishing license will be protected if the Captain is properly licensed. This is particularly important for visitors from out of state, where the fees can be quite high. You should also ensure that your equipment is properly maintained and operated. This equipment includes the boat, fishing gear, and safety equipment.
During your charter trip, your Captain or fishing guide will be at the helm. This is an important step in the selection process, as you want to find a specific combination. These traits include experience, personality (a lot of information can be found online), and great knowledge about the area where you are fishing. Charter businesses often provide a cooler with ice and bottled water.
However, you should always bring some things with you. You should bring clothing that is appropriate for the weather, snacks, drinks, and a cooler in case you want to bring home fish. Also, sunscreen, sunglasses, and a towel are good options. You should look into purchasing a life jacket that fits your child if they are under 10 years old. The boat will provide this safety gear for adults but it is better to have your own for the smaller members of your family.
What kind of fishing can we do?
The best part is that there are many. North Myrtle Beach’s location means that you can fish inshore, offshore, backcountry, and even tarpon. It all comes down to the season and what kind of fishing you prefer to do. This will determine which charter type you choose. North Myrtle Beach offers a wide range of fishing options, including fly, lure, and bait fishing.
When is the best time to book a charter?
The North Myrtle Beach fishing is always active. However, you might have special requirements regarding weather or species that you need to plan for. There are many fishing options inshore and offshore during the spring and summer. The tarpon migration takes place late in the summer and continues until the fall. In the winter, there are also shots of big breeder redfish and other inshore favorites.
