We showed up at Calabash Marina on the morning of our deep-sea fishing trip, they asked that we arrive 30 minutes early. The check-in process was flawless, we boarded the Hurricane II and we were out to sea shortly after. Since this was our first deep-sea fishing excursion, we opted for the half-day trip. The captain did a great job, he kept us on fish all morning and we moved to a new location each time it slowed down.

The knowledgeable deckhands were fun and able to identify many of the different fish species found in the Atlantic ocean. They were quick to assist with removing fish, adding bait, and fixing tangles as needed. My wife ended up catching the largest fish of the morning; she managed to reel in a sharp nose shark that was just under 4ft in length.
When we returned to the dock one of the deckhands cleaned our keepers, they do not charge for this service but keep in mind that they do work for tips. We ended up giving some of our fish away and were still able to take a couple of pounds of shark and grunt fish over to Crabcatchers restaurant, in Little River, NC.
My family and I loved this adventure. Little River Fishing Fleet provided our family with a unique fishing experience that we will never forget. Deep-sea fishing will be a part of our itinerary next time we visit the North Myrtle Beach area.
