We've taken numerous charters and have to say Capt Jack is great! He got us on flounder and redifsh ten minutes into the trip and stayed on them throughout, even through high winds and partial slack tide. He gave us some great info on rigging and where to get on the fish no matter what the tide was doing. I recommend him highly. We'll be in touch with him again next year. :-) Tim B.

The weather can be hit and miss from one day to the next and the temperatures can slow the bite, a longer trip will allow time to get out further and get to cooler waters which will increase the bite.

Ask as many questions of an assigned captain about your trip before you book it.That way there are no surprises, and there are no disappointments. And you should remember that you take no bananas to sea.

Went for a half day fishing trip in shore with my husband and son in the morning. Caleb was our guide who was professional and personable. We caught Spanish mackerel and flounder. Caleb suggested making Ceviche with it which my son did, he loved it. Thanks Caleb for a great day, see you next year!

Talk to your Captain before you arrive for your charter. Your Captain will give good advice as to what to bring , what to expect. Remember that sea sickness can happen to anyone at anytime. There are over the counter remedies available. Familiarize yourself with them well before your trip

Great time to go apparently, I wanted to be after shark and cobia. I've always wanted a tarpon. Captain said they don't get them there. We hooked a monster tarpon,captain couldn't believe it! Had a hell of a fight on him. Then a 5-6' blacktip shark. Will be back for cobia.

Come here with an open mind (fishing is heavily dependent upon the weather and specifies caught depends on the time of the year) and bring your reeling muscles. You’re in for a good time and for some, a nice little workout.

Fishing is a hit or miss. Don't expect to get a catch. But do intend to have fun. Catching is a plus. Fish do get off the line. But it its a fun and learning experience.. Every day is different. Just have fun.

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.

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 ???????

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.

Be patient. I had doubts about catching anything due to the weather, very windy. Sometimes nothing can be caught. Lucky we hit a couple. Not the charter boat captains fault if nothing is biting!

We were supposed to fish inshore and near shore. But the conditions wouldn't allow the inshore. Captain Nick put us on a lot of fish. Great time!!!

This is surf fishing and that takes a lot of work to get the lines far enough out for quality catches. The captain used a kayak to drop the lines at a great spot.

Understand that fishing is, by nature, fickle. You will have good days and bad days. Everything is a part of the experience... and be thankful that you had the opportunity be on the water.

I will, definitely recommend this trip for anyone who wants to go fishing. However, I would say if you have small children, tell the Captain you want to stay in calmer waters.
