Historic Charleston, SC has more to offer than many people know. Quietly nestled in the heart of the South, Charles’ Town plays host to a spectacular red drum and shark population. While visiting this great city, you might want to consider some drag screaming, rod bending, arm tiring action in our waters. Charleston fishing charters serves Charleston Harbor, Kiawah, Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island, James Island, Folly Beach & Mt. Pleasant . So no matter where you are staying in the Low Country, we can accommodate your charter request.
The South Carolina Department of Natural Recourses along with cooperation of the local fishing guide community has insured that the red fish population of South Carolina will endure. With a moratorium on commercial harvest and restrictive recreational bag limits, the survival of the red drum is all but certain. Red fish are not considered a “meat fish” and therefore many local captains are hesitant to kill more than one per person each trip. We agree that this one fish policy is a healthy step towards moderation, and on charters where dozens of red drum are being caught, anglers often come to agree with the necessity of such restrictions. Inshore trips in the Charleston area are primarily for sport fishing, offshore trips are usually better suited to fill your coolers up. The nice thing about inshore fishing is that there are no long boat rides to the fishing grounds and sea sickness rarely occurs.
At Charleston Fishing Charters, we cater to families vacationing on summer break, corporate clients and bachelor parties. If you have a last minute thought of fishing. No problem. Give us a call to see if we can get you on the water. We run a flexible charter services and will strive to work with your schedule. We might just have the open date that you are looking for.
The many species of shark that inhabit Charleston Harbor and the surrounding waterways help keep the attention of young anglers. One particularly enjoyable method of shark fishing is to “chase the shrimp boats.” This means that your captain will drive right up behind the trawler as it is dragging its nets and place large baits on the bottom waiting for the shark beneath. This style of angling is quite an experience. Birds, dolphin and sharks all work together to create a unique sight.
With all these sharks and red fish in our waters, don’t be surprised to come away with the trip of a lifetime!
