Deep Sea Offshore Fishing Charters for Pawleys Island, Murrells Inlet, and Georgetown, SC

Come join Captain Max MacMillan onboard the Critter Gitter II for a fun day of fishing the waters offshore of coastal South Carolina!

Departing from Georgetown, SC (only minutes from Pawleys Island, Murrells Inlet, and Myrtle Beach), you’ll spend a day at sea fishing for (and catching!) several of many different species of fish. Trips are available inshore to bottom fish for species like Sea Bass or Grouper, or you can choose to ‘go deep’ and head for the pure blue waters of the Gulf Stream, 50+ miles offshore, going after Dolphin, Tuna, and even billfish!

What’s it like?

It’s early, before dawn, and the waters of Winyah Bay are like black mirrored glass reflecting the stars as you walk down the dock towards the boat. The quiet of the morning belies the excitement you feel as the captain and mate get you and your charter buddies settled in before idling away from the dock. 50 miles later, out on the edge of the Gulf Stream, the sun is just rising, and so are the big dolphin, heading for your spread of baits, the morning about to begin not with the ring of an impatient alarm clock, but instead with the whine of fishing line screaming off the reel as you settle down to fight this big bull back onto the boat…

More info, please!

In 2014, we’ve upgraded for you! The new Critter Gitter II is a 33′ Wellcraft 330 Coastal, powered by Twin Volvo Diesels. She is a strongly-built boat with a larger and more comfortable cockpit area for fishing, and she is completely outfitted with state-of-the-art electronics including radar. We will have some pictures of her for you to look at soon!

She is USCG approved for charter, has full bathroom facilities aboard and an air-conditioned salon area, and between her inherent safety and Captain Max’s 20 years of experience boating, you are guaranteed a safe, fun day of fishing waters few visitors to the area ever even get the chance to see.

We provide everything you need for your day of fishing except for personal items like sunblock, sunglasses, outerwear, and drinks/snacks. We have the bait, tackle, and licenses needed.

Offshore Fishing Charters – Pawleys Island – Murrells Inlet – Georgetown, SC

Just a few minutes south of the Grand Strand is your best way to experience deep sea fishing – aboard a private chartered vessel skippered by an experienced and USCG Licensed Captain!

Whether you are in Pawleys Island, Murrells Inlet, Garden City, Surfside, Myrtle Beach or parts further north, historic Georgetown SC and scenic, natural Winyah Bay are well “off of the beaten track”, but still plenty close enough to be convenient for a visit.

This short drive away from the ‘condolands’ is our hidden small part of the Old South – friendly and beautiful, sitting on the edge of over 100,000 acres of pristine saltwater marsh and barrier islands ecosystems. Your day of fishing begins and ends in this most amazing example of one of the east Coasts largest wildlife preserve areas.

Come join us on the Critter Gitter II for a day of offshore fishing – whether on the nearshore wrecks, reefs, and live bottom, or out trolling the deep blue waters of the Gulf Stream for the pelagic monsters! Your trip from beginning to end will be unforgettable!
