Folly Beach Fishing

Folly Beach Fishing welcomes you to Folly Beach, South Carolina! Treat yourself to a fun and enjoyable fishing trip to this first-class destination. Along with the friendly Captain Kevin Blair, you’ll most often fish inshore but will have the option to fish nearshore and enjoy the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean. Book today and let Folly Beach Fishing take you on a true fishing adventure.

You’ll fish from a fine 25’ Sea Fox center console powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine. It can sit up to 6 guests and uses modern navigation technology, which includes GPS, fishfinder, and radio. There’s an onboard livewell to supply you with live bait, as well as a wireless trolling motor used for a more stealthy approach.

There’s a huge choice of fish you can target. There’s Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Whiting, Spanish Mackerel, Sheepshead, Shark, and many more. You’ll use light tackle for most of your trip. You can keep the fish you catch and take it home for some delicious meals. This doesn’t apply to sharks as they’re catch and release only. Also, feel free to bring along kids, it can be a wonderful experience for them and everybody will have more fun with them around.

The captain supplies you with all the rods, reels, and tackle. When possible, live bait will be caught before your charter. On 4- and 6-hour charters, the captain will clean and fillet your catch. He’ll also provide cold bottled water and fishing licenses.

Please note: The departure time for all trips may vary due to fishing conditions; the exact time is determined by the captain, who will notify the customer of any changes prior to the trip.

Have a lot of angling fun with Folly Beach Fishing!

Great trips with Peter and Zeke!
Great trips with Peter and Zeke!
April 4, 2024
The past few days have been good as we pushed back into the creeks to get out of the wind. Zeke and I found a spot where the Redfish were piled up around an oyster bed near some deep water. We drifted live minnows into the hole and got bit consistently for nearly two hours. The next day Peter and I went in the other direction and found a school set up just outside some shallow water. Peter landed his cast just above the school and let the current push it into the strike zone. Peter landed so many quality Redfish that he told me halfway through the trip that his arms were tired and he was ready to call it a day. That doesn't happen often but when it does I know we had a good day!

Great fishing during Easter break!
Great fishing during Easter break!
March 29, 2024
Great fishing inshore this week during Easter break despite some variable weather. The Redfish, Speckled Trout and Flounder ate well during the day. We had good success with minnows and shrimp presented with popping corks and jigs. This week's weather looks good with light winds forecast for the morning. Let's go fishing!
