O-Fish-Al Expeditions

O-Fish-Al Expeditions are located in the ‘Seafood Capital of South Carolina’ – Murrells Inlet. They offer inshore fishing trips around the local inshore and nearshore waterways, such as Murrells Inlet, Pawleys Inlet North/South, Winyah Bay, North Inlet, North/South Santee Bays, Atlantic Ocean, and the Intracoastal Waterway..

Their 18’ Key West skiff is powered by a Yamaha engine, and is equipped with a GPS and a fishfinder. Perfect for shallow water fishing for Redfish and great for trolling and drifting for Flounder, the boat also features a live bait tank, an icebox, and a radio. It also has plenty of room for up to four anglers.

Fishing will consist more of casting rather than drifting and trolling. O-Fish-Al Expeditions use Lew’s and Eagle Claw spinning combos for rod and reels, and all their fishing rigs are locally hand tied according to their specific local game fish fishing equipment. They offer half day and full day trips and mainly fish for Flounder, Redfish, and Trout, depending on the season and conditions on the day.

Included in the trip are rods, reels, and terminal tackle, as well as live bait and lures. Fishing licenses for everyone on board are also included, and the captain will clean and fillet any fish you would like to take home with you.

O-Fish-Al Expeditions’ goal is to provide everyone on their trips with a safe, fun, and enjoyable time on the water, whether they are fishing, pleasure boating, or sight seeing. Book with them to see why new customers quickly turn into returning customers!

I became a fisherman as a young child when i was taught by my father how to angle both fresh and salt water game fish species. As a young man I fished offshore and inshore with my father and uncle aboard their sportfisher trolling and bottom fishing.
