Inshore Fishing vs. Offshore Fishing

When it comes to running a fishing charter business, we get the chance to meet many locals and tourists with all experience levels! We’ve come to realize that many people who seek us out for a day of fishing don’t know or understand the difference between in-shore and off-shore fishing. That’s why we’re here! 

Inshore Fishing

Our in-shore fishing charters take your group (6 people max) on a relaxing trip through the inlet creeks and jetties around the Murrells Inlet area. We stay closer to shore venturing out only a few miles and fishing for flounder, trout, redfish, Spanish mackerel, king mackerel, black drum, sharks, stingrays, and more. They know all the tricks and signs in the water that will yield more fish for you, like V-shaped wakes, jumping minnows, and shrimp trying to escape being eaten. Our fishing pros know what kind of fish to look for and will do their best to set everyone on board up for success. 

Offshore Fishing

Once everyone is onboard our fishing pros will travel up to 65 miles offshore to depts up to 30 meters where you will be able to haul in snapper, grouper, triggerfish, black sea bass, mahi-mahi, sharks, wahoo, and tuna on the shorter runs. Our fishing pros will be able to steer you in the right direction when it comes to reeling in a big one and will inform you about the open season laws and size restrictions during your excursion. 

Overall, the main difference between inshore and offshore fishing, aside from the distance, is the type of fish you’ll be after. No matter what your experience level is our team of fishing professionals here at Marlin Quay Marina is here to help you have a great experience and, of course, reel in a big one!
