Put sunscreen on first. Ware a sun protection shirt. Ware a hat, sun glasses. Take a bottle of water. Bring your camera. That is all you will need for a amazing adventure TIP YOUR CAPTAIN VERY WELL. Your life is in his hands. He will show you the ocean and what is in it, in a way you have never seen. This is a experience and memories you will always have. Enjoy ???????

Went fishing with Tide Chaser on Marzo 2, 2021
Enjoyed te fishing, Captain Adam on the Tide Chaser. Temperature was cold and the fish were not biting, this happens. The trip was great, I highly recommend fishing the Tide Chaser. Capt. Adam was helpful, friendly, knowledgeable, provided many fishing tips. Take away the cold temperature and catch a few fish and this would have been a little better. This was an Excellent Trip, I will be going out again with Capt. Adam soon. I recommend using the Tide Chaser when fishing Murrells Inlet! Thank you.

It is certainly hot in the summer months and July is no different. Going on a private charter and 7 miles from shore was well worth it. I would not expect a great deal of fish as it is probably unreasonable to expect when it is so hot unless you go further out and would require a full day trip. Fun for the family and caught lots of different fish that we released that include Shark, Pin Fish, Puffer Fish, Sea Bass and Cobia.

Do your homework. Captain AL was supposed to be our captain "as advertised" but he is somewhat retired according to Captain Scott. Like most fishing trips you never what your going to get. Some crews work hard to make it a great experience and others just do the minimum. Reviews can be deceiving, ask around and do your homework.

August if you want to catch fish you can keep, go deep water if possible. They encouraged us to do 3/4 day, but we really were looking for 1/2 day nearshore as our first experience. Will return for the deep water next time.

The water was a little ruff getting to where we went but that was the weather and nothing to do with the boat or captain. the captain did a great job. The crew was always right there to help. All the guys had a great time and want to go again in the spring. Can't wait.

#1. Find this Captain. #2. Don't have too high of expectations of landing a boatload of 20# redfish or 10# flounder. #3. Slow down, enjoy the time with your family. #4. Either go inshore - or plan a full 16 hour deep off-shore. Don't waste time and money on 6-8 hour boat rides just off shore.. #5. Tip your Mate - or if your Captain does it all, appropriately tip him/her as well.

Try to select a trip that has an in coming or out going tide. You can catch fish during a slack tide, but it's much more difficult. I would definitely recommend captain Caleb from Hook and Line fishing. Great guy and terrific guide.

First time visitors who want a fresh water adventure and catch fish need to book with Captain Todd. You will learn a great deal and have fun at the same time. We saw alligators, crabs, Osprey, and caught fish too.

Like all salt water fishing species target should be anything that bites while you can target certain fish depending on a lot of factors what actually bites if anything is subject to many variables. Tides, weather fronts, and many other variables affect the bite. Crews work hard to put you on the fish but can't guarantee results.

Be prepared for choppy water and strong winds. Weather can change on a dime, must be flexible and patient to have a good experience. Wide variety of delicious fish. People friendly and always willing to help.

This rating is highly subjective to it being only about a week after hurricane Ian. The boat and Capt. Tyler were exceptional!

We didn’t fish in the inlet but just off the beach. I understand that November & December are best for inlet fishing.

It sounds like the fishing in Murells Inlet (not out in the ocean) is best in the fall when the reds, flounders, and other fish are in the inlet and stream areas.

Communicate with your Captain. All of the CPTs want you to have a great trip and will do their best for you. They just need to know your expectations.

If using fishing Booker, make sure you call ahead to avoid double booking problems... We would have liked to fish the morning and for 7 instead of 4 hrs

If fishing from land go to Hamilton Beach Park, and walk out to the jetty to fish. For bait use squid, shrimp, and mud minnows.
