If you are visiting Myrtle Beach this Summer and looking for a family friendly adventure on the water, our Shark Fishing Charters are the most popular fishing charters for families. No experience is required to catch sharks and your captain will ensure the safety of everyone on board the boat when handling these fish beside the boat.
Sharks are very common along the South Carolina coast during the warmer months(April-October). Shark species common to the Myrtle Beach area include Black Tips, Sandbar Sharks, Bonnetheads, Lemon Sharks, and Bull Sharks. Most of the sharks we target average 20-50lbs however it is not uncommon to catch larger sharks over 100lbs.
We use light to heavy tackle for these incredible fighting fish which don’t require much experience to land. We target sharks along the inlets, jetties, and bays where schools of baitfish tend to congregate. We will occasionally venture out into the ocean to target sharks however a lot of the areas we fish are in calm water so no worries of passengers getting sea sick.
We use a variation of baits including cut menhaden, mullet, and bluefish. Bottom rigs with wire leader and circle hooks are reliable rigs when fishing for sharks. Your captain will handle the shark beside the boat and will do our best to get a picture for you. All sharks that we catch are released to fight another day.
We hope that you’ll consider joining us this Summer on a shark fishing adventure. If you plan to shark fish on your own, please take note of local laws which prohibit shark fishing from shore in certain areas of Myrtle Beach.
