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 5 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.

Have a lot of angling fun with Folly Beach Fishing!

The September bite is hot!
The September bite is hot!
September 1, 2021
Folly Beach Charter fishing in September gives everyone something to look forward to. Big Bull Redfish are piling into the inlets and Jetties, False Albacore and Spanish Mackerel are chasing baits a mile off the beach, big sharks are lurking around the sandbars. Just inshore Flounder, Black Drum, Speckled Trout and keeper Redfish are feeding in our tidal rivers and creeks on live shrimp, mud minnows and all our favorite artificials by Z-Man. Bait is abundant so a few quick throws of the cast net and we have full live wells. There is a feeding frenzy that begins in September and continues through the end of the year. Shorter days and the sudden influx of bait signals to every fish that it's time to eat as much as they can before the water cools down.  Let's get you out there to enjoy it with us! Call, text or book online. See you on deck!
