Charleston Fishing Excursion

The best time to come aboard the Wahoo to hook some of the biggest and baddest fish the sea has to offer is any time. The best time for you to book your own personal charter fishing experience? That depends largely on what you want to get out of your trip. Are you salivating for a hard fight with some of the ocean’s monsters like a 500 pound Marlin? Or are you looking to fill your cooler with tuna steaks for the grill? The best time to book your fishing excursion depends upon the answer.

Early Spring

tuna fishing excursion

The yellowfin and Bluefin tuna populations spike in late winter to early spring. If you’re hankering for some fresh tuna, and love the sea when the weather is cool and clean, this is the perfect time to book your fishing excursion. Heading out in the well-appointed Wahoo, choose from a half-day, full-day, or even overnight trip, and spend your time pulling in some of the tastiest food the ocean has to offer- succulent tuna. The best part? Bluefin tuna average 300 pounds in the winter to early spring. You can have the best of both worlds fishing in the Spring- a fight to remember, and a meal on the table with a story to tell.

Late Spring and Summer

As the weather warms up, the tuna population dwindles. You can still land big tuna in the summer months, but the star players in warmer weather are sailfish and other large game fish. Cobia tend to stick close to the top of the water in May or June, making them a fun target for trollers.

Fall and Winter

As the weather cools again, the tuna come back around, providing an exciting fight for any fishermen brave enough to wet their lines. While tuna are an excellent target, don’t forget that dolphin, mackerel, and dozens of other species are hitting steadily throughout the year. The crew of the Wahoo understand the movements of local gamefish, and we’re dedicated to putting you on the right spot to catch the most, biggest, and most aggressive fish. Call today to set up your Wahoo fishing experience. You’ll be glad you did.
