Captain Dick's Review & Editor's Notes


The Fishing Charters through Captain Dick's give you a full range of options for conquering the great fish in Myrtle Beach.  From the inland waters to the Gulf Stream, the incredible opportunities for fishing are hard to describe.  Trolling in the Blue Waters, anglers are likely to find King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo, Marlin and Sailfish.

The Wahoo is a definite favorite!  Its fast swimming and fierce fighting are matched on the table with its delicious taste!  Averaging 10-30 pounds, the Wahoo can reach weights in excess of a hundred pounds.  Early summer is the best opportunity for larger Wahoo and Tuna.  Trolling is the usual technique.


Bottom-fishing brings out great opportunities as well.  Snapper, Grouper and Triggerfish are common catches with this approach. The Reef Fish are a great summer quarry.  Smaller schools spread out as the waters warm.  Average Grouper range in size from five to ten pounds; 40 pound Groupers are not unheard of and Warsaw Groupers actually reach astounding weights such as 300 pounds!  The bottom fish may be found in depths as shall as 50 feet but are more commonly found in the 70-150' depths.


Other Myrtle Beach favorites include King Mackerel, Amberjacks, Barracuda and Cobia.  The Cobia is a pelagic fish that migrates into the area during the warm summer months.  Full of fight and reaching significant weights, the Cobia is definitely an angler favorite.


Red Drum

In-shore waters abound with great fishing and Captain CJ loves taking charter guests to the best spots!  The favorite sport-fish along the coast is most likely to be the Red Drum.  Also called a Redfish, Channel Bass or Spot-tail, these beauties offer diverse opportunity.  From tailing in the shallows to sight-casting in schools that number in the hundreds, the excitement of a Red is hard to beat.

These waters also offer other such local species as: Flounder, Trout, Black Drum, Whiting, Bluefish, and Sheepshead.  There is not a dull moment on any spot of Myrtle Beach waters.

The temperate waters off the South Carolina coast provide a nutrient-rich fish habitat that pleases fish and anglers alike.  From the in-shore estuaries, brackish water ponds, swamps, and salt marshes to the wide open blue of the Gulf Stream, great fishing is available!


South Carolina says it clearly:  'Life is better lived outdoors!'  Year-round excellent weather partners with year-round great fishing to provide an angler's paradise.
