off shore fishing?

We are going to MB in two weeks and my husband and 16yr old son are interested in going offshore fishing(and maybe my 12 yo daughter). Has anyone done this and can you recommend a reputable place? Any advice is appreciated!!

Depending on where you're staying, you will want to head south to Capt. Dick's marina in Murrell's Inlet (if staying central to south MB) or head north to either Little River or Calabash, NC (We like Calabash because you can get a great seafood meal while there. Here's an outfit to check out: www.hurricanfleet.com

You'll have to decide what type of trip and how long. A lot of people take party boat trips but I dislike those. Too many people and lots of tangled lines plus jockeying for a good spot in the back of the boat. The fish are generally small on party boat trips as well. Party boats are way cheaper than a charter though.

You can book a charter and share the expense with a few other people. Most of the private charters will help you book with up to six people total to help get the cost down. Depending on the charter trip you select the fish should be a lot bigger but the trips tend to be much longer (8-12 hours).

You could also go for a near shore/inlet trip from Capt Dick's which would just be your family and doesn't cost much more than a party boat total cost. We've caught decent fish including red fish (10lbs plus) and flounder on these trips. Plus if it's rough you can still fish the inlet and the jetty even on days when the other boats couldn't go out.
