Why is Charleston perfect for fishing charters?


Everyone knows that Charleston is the place to go for seafood, fine dining, history, or hospitality. But what about fishing charters? As an area surrounded by water, Charleston is a great place to fish, whether you’re casting a line off a dock or embarking on a once in a lifetime fishing trip.


Here are a few reasons why Charleston truly is the perfect place for fishing charters:


  1. Diverse species of fish. With Charleston’s numerous estuaries, creeks, rivers, in-shore sites, and deep sea fishing areas, there are so many opportunities to catch both common and rare fish. Some of the fish you can look forward to catching include redfish, speckled sea trout, flounder, black drum, sheepshead, marlin, sailfish, mahi mahi, wahoo, and tuna. If you like a challenge, you may even have the chance to try to catch a shark.
  2. Charleston has both near shore and deep sea fishing. Fishing in either area can provide hours of entertainment for seasoned fishermen or a different perspective for people accustomed to fishing only near shore or only in the deep sea.
  3. Shipwrecks. Because Charleston is so rich in history, there are plenty of shipwrecks in the surrounding areas. Not only are these fun to find, but they also attract fish and can be entertaining fishing spots. Luckily, our fishing charter captains know where all of them are!
  4. The view. Charleston is a beautiful city from land, but from a boat, it’s breathtaking. Time your fishing charter so that you can see either the sunrise or the sunset over Charleston harbor. Cast your line as the sun dips below the horizon on a cool summer evening, you won’t regret it.
