Salt Marsh Charters

703 State Road S-7-721
Beaufort SC, United States

Salt Marsh Charters operates out of Beaufort, SC, fishing the surrounding flats and backcountry for Redfish, Trout, and more. If you’re looking for a classic South Carolina fishing experience with a seasoned guide and a reliable boat, you’ve come to the right place.

Spend your day aboard Captain John Martin’s 18’ Pro Sports bay boat. The vessel can carry 2 anglers comfortably and cruises at speed thanks to her 90 HP Yamaha outboard. The boat boasts a full array of safety features as well as modern marine electronics to get you locked on the best fish around.

You’ll be fishing the surrounding salt marshes on the hunt for bull Reds, hard-fighting Seatrout, and tasty Flounder. The boat’s shallow draft will have you cruising effortlessly through the skinny waters while her trolling motor makes sure the fish never hear you coming. You may also be able to target Cobia, Snapper, and other reef fish if the weather’s on your side.

Salt Marsh Charters trips come with quality rods and reels, as well as all the tackle, live bait, and lures you’ll need for the day. At the end of your trip, Capt. John will even clean and fillet all your fish for you. All you need to think about is how you’ll fit it all in your cooler!

Anglers of all ages and experience levels are welcome onboard and Capt. John will tailor each trip to make sure it’s perfect for your party. This is your chance to get deep into the shallows and learn about a truly unique environment by battling its top predators. If it sounds like the perfect day out, it probably is!
