We all love spending time with family, and The Strand Resort provides a great setting for making lifelong memories. With Father’s Day just around the corner, consider taking Dad out for some world-class fishing in the Myrtle Beach area.
An activity typically carried out far from the crowds, fishing provides a perfect opportunity for family members to share time together and bond. Imagine getting on that charter boat with Dad for a half or full day of deep-sea fishing in the tranquil blue sea off the Carolina coast. Enjoy the sun as it rises over the horizon as you rig your line for some of the best fishing on the planet.
Most people prefer to have a private fishing charter for the best experience. You can bring the whole family to spend time with Dad as you cruise out up to 60 miles off the coast to catch the big fish. King mackerel, mahi, cobia, sailfish and sharks will be among the biggest prizes as you troll the bountiful Gulf Stream. Don’t worry if you have little fishing experience — the boat’s captain and deck hands will be there to guide you through. How cool would it be to watch your Dad reel in a big one worthy of mounting on his wall?
The trips don’t have to be all the way out to sea. Short trips to bottom fish for grouper or flounder can bring just as much fun. The pros at North Myrtle Beach Fishing Charters are experts on these types of fishing trips. These local fishermen know their stuff and keep up with where the fish hang out, so you can be sure you are in good hands.
Not every trip has to be private, either. Let’s say you have an extended family that wants to spend time with Dad. Big boats such as the 90-foot Pride of the Carolinas offered by the Little River Fishing Fleet are available with per-participant pricing. This boat can carry up to about 70 people. Imagine what kind of fishing adventure could be had with a large group of family and friends on a boat this big. Maybe it’s a special year for Dad and he deserves a big party.
It’s a big ocean out there, and there are plenty of Grand Strand vendors that will be glad to take you fishing. Make sure you inquire about all the services they offer and the different types of trips that are available. You will find that most staffs — like the ones mentioned above and those of the Hurricane Fleet in Calabash, NC, Voyager Deep Sea Fishing & Dolphin Cruises in North Myrtle Beach, and Aces Up Fishing in Murrells Inlet — will aim for nothing short of 100 percent customer satisfaction.
So what do you think? Are you ready to take Dad on a fishing adventure? Just think of all the fishing stories you can tell about the “whopper” that got away. Envision how happy Dad will be to learn that you planned an activity he might really enjoy to do on Father’s Day. You can bring your whole family and set up your fishing-adventure base camp at The Strand Resort — or, if you’d prefer to just spend time relaxing with Dad, The Strand’s high-end accommodations can suit that as well. Whatever you decide, we hope you can take the time to spend the day with Dad this year.
