The Charter

Wicked Hooker Charters and Captain Jim Branthoover welcome you and your family and friends aboard to get hooked up in some of Murrells Inlet’s finest nearshore and offshore reefs!

The "Wicked Hooker" is a beautiful and spacious 27’ Triton center console. She comes powered by twin 200 HP Suzuki engines that get you to your fishing grounds quickly and safely. She’s fully equipped with the latest in electronics and navigational equipment.

The live well is kept loaded with bait at all times and top line tackle is at your disposal to land them all. There’s also a porta-potty on board, which is much-needed when spending a day on the water.

You’ll have plenty of targets on your hands. Pursue Flounder while anchoring over live bottoms or head to the artificial reefs for delicious Snapper and Grouper. Troll the deep blue waters for pelagics, including Mahi Mahi and Kingfish, or go after monster Sharks that can be found off Murrells Inlet!

All trips come inclusive with a license for everyone on board, as well as quality rods, reels, tackle, lures, and bait. Once caught, your fish will be cleaned and ready to take home. Just grab something to eat and drink and hop aboard!

Captain Jim is sure to have the trip that will work with your schedule and does his best to help you land the fish of your dreams!
