Welcome to Perry’s Bait & Tackle

Since 1954, Perry’s Bait and Tackle has been providing locals and tourists with exceptional bait, tackle, and fishing tips. When it comes to fishing or finding a great fishing charter, we’re your local specialists. Whether you’re a novice and need help getting started, or a fishing expert, Perry’s Bait and Tackle is the bait shop for you. We’ll help you find the correct bait, rigs, and tackle, so all you have to do is fish! We know the inlet and local waters very well, and we’ll provide the tips to make your fishing adventure happen. Our on-site cleaning station is convenient for all of our customers too. Of course, you’ll need to pose with your catch of the day first!

We are located in the heart of Murrells Inlet, SC, and we are right up against the inlet. We offer dock access and are just a skip and a hop from the public landing. The fishing is consistent as species come and go throughout the seasons. Local and visiting anglers fish for species such as red drum, black drum, trout, flounder, sheepshead, cobia, king mackerel, spanish mackerel, pompano, whiting, spadefish, and more!! We’ll help you choose the right gear, hook you up with a charter, and provide expert advice to make it your best day of fishing in the Murrells Inlet, Pawleys Island and Myrtle Beach areas.

Products We Sell

We sell a large variety of saltwater tackle. Our main selection focuses on inshore and surf fishing. However, we are not limited to just those! We also have a growing selection of offshore and freshwater tackle. You can call us "your one stop shop"! Whether you are going surf fishing, flounder gigging, wahoo trolling, or 50+ miles offshore, we have all the supplies to get you the fish! If there’s a specialty item you need and we don’t have it in stock, please let us know and we can order it for you!

It still surprises me that there are some people that live close by and have never ventured to the Marshwalk. I love this place not only because of the location but also because of the people that make this place home.
