I enjoy taking families with kids. My wife and I have been blessed with two great kids. The top left photo is of my son, Tyler holding two Speckled Trout when he was 10 years old; the photo below it is of Tyler this past October holding a Redfish, he is now 23. My daughter isn't into fishing much, she just likes boating. My point being that, as a parent, I am very familiar with what it takes to make sure that children have an enjoyable time. The youngest child that I have taken on a fishing charter was 4 years old and I would suggest that as a minimum age limit. In my experience, children 7 years and up are the ones who truly appreciate spending 4 hours on a boat.
Planning your North Myrtle Beach Fishing Charter:
If you are planning to go fishing in Myrtle Beach or fishing in North Myrtle Beach and would like to be on a fun private fishing charter, then you are in the right place. If you like to fish from a boat but don't like to get seasick you are also in the right place. We fish primarily in the calm waters of the Intracoastal Waterway, Salt Marshes and Little River Inlet. We do sometimes fish the near-shore reefs three miles out, but only at the client's request and only if the sea swells are two feet or less.
Where we will go:
Our typical North Myrtle Beach fishing charters start at Anchor Marina in North Myrtle Beach; we head North along the Intracoastal Waterway through North Myrtle Beach and Little River, maybe stopping along the way to try some fishing holes until we reach near to the SC/NC border; then depending on where we have been having the most success on previous trips, we may go fishing further into North Carolina along the Intracoastal Waterway or we may stay in South Carolina and fish the salt marshes between the waterway and the Little River Inlet; in addition to fishing the inlet itself. Most of my fishing charters will encompass both South and North Carolina; but not to worry we have blanket licenses that cover everyone fishing from the Go Fish in both states.
What to wear?
Wear whatever clothing you are most comfortable wearing outdoors at the time of your scheduled trip. If you can, please avoid wearing flip-flops, there is a good reason they are also called "slippers" especially when there is water present, you may suffer a fall wearing flip-flops. The best footwear for boating would be sneakers or some other type of comfortable casual shoes; preferably with non-marking soles. I suggest going online to check the weather a couple of days before your scheduled trip as a guide to what clothing you may be most comfortable wearing during my North Myrtle Beach fishing charter, especially during Spring and Fall when we have widely varying weather conditions on a daily basis. Here is a link to current weather conditions in North Myrtle Beach:
Bait and Tackle:
Most of the year we use spinning tackle with 20 pound test braided line and live bait (shrimp, mullet minnows, menhaden) that I will catch in my cast net. In the cooler months when there are not any schools of bait that I can throw my net on, I will buy mud-minnows from one of the local bait shops. Sometimes we will also use fresh cut shrimp, which is a favorite meal of Black Drum. We will use lures sometimes in the winter while fishing for Speckled Trout; usually Berkley Gulp Shrimp. The 20 pound test braided line is as thin as 6 pound monofilament and better able to handle the big Bull Redfish that come in from out of the deep ocean to spawn at the Little River Inlet from September until November. It can also hold up better against the many oyster shells that are prevalent in most of the areas that we will fish.

Go Fish Inshore Charters
Please do not bring spray or aerosol type sunscreen for use on the boat as it goes everywhere and gets on everything including the deck, resulting in slippery and unsafe areas to walk on. You may spray it on in the parking lot of the marina before we board the boat, but please only bring rub on type sunscreen for use on the boat.
