Southern Breeze Charters

Southern Breeze Charters aims to be Charleston’s best choice for inshore and nearshore fishing. Suitable for both veteran anglers and those who have had precious little experience holding a rod, Captain Nicholas Winch will do his best to provide you with a trip tailored to your needs.

Get ready for drag screaming action aboard his top of the line brand new 24’ Yellowfin bay boat. Being powered by a single 350 HP Mercury Verado engine, it’ll get you to where the fish are biting in a snap. There’s plenty of room here for up to 6 guests, making it perfect for family fishing trips. It’s also got a wireless trolling motor that’s indispensable for sneaking up on easy to spook fish.

There’s a number of different things you can do on these waters at any given time, so feel free to pick what best suits your style. Inshore trips are mostly aimed at jetty fishing, and more experienced anglers can do trips that include fly fishing, creek fishing, and sight casting. In the nearshore waters, though, reefs and wrecks are the name of the game. The most prominent species you’ll find around here include Redfish, Black Seabass, Amberjack, Cobia, Sharks, Tarpon (when in season), and more besides.

Captain Nicholas will provide you with all the necessary rods, reels, and terminal tackle for the trip. There’s also plenty of bottled water on board, but you’re more than welcome to bring your own drinks and snacks. Going from Shem Creek Park or the Downtown marina? He’ll be happy to pick you up. If you want bent rods and sore arms at the end of the day, give Southern Breeze Charters a shout.

Growing up in Charleston, Captain Nicholas Winch was lucky enough to be able to fish these beautiful waters just about every day. Having fished since he could walk, there was never any doubt about the importance of fishing in his life. His favorite thing about fishing is the sheer excitement of reeling in the big fish that's almost palpable.

The weather is warm and the fish and feeding hard. The inshore bite is still very good and the jetties bite is getting better and better each day. Menhaden are here which means the big bull reds are THICK in the harbor and at the jetties.
