Shem Creek Fishing

Shem Creek Fishing offers you a fun and relaxing angling experience in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. Discover its rich marine life as you and Captain Chris Osborne search its inshore, nearshore, as well as offshore waters and have lots of fun chasing fish. The choice is wide, so pick your trip and enjoy!

You will start on a 32’ Topaz center console boat that can take up to 6 guests. It runs on twin 320 HP Caterpillar engines, uses a GPS, fishfinder, and radio for navigation, and is equipped with outriggers and a livewell. Feel free to ask the first mate for any help you need.

The species you can target include Amberjack, Blacktip Shark, Mahi Mahi, Kingfish, Black Seabass, Wahoo, and many more. You’ll catch them by bottom, deep sea, and drift fishing, trolling, spinning, and jigging. The fish you catch is yours to keep and take home, but if you want, you can just release it back to the water. The boat’s kid-friendly, so feel free to bring the young ones on the trip and have a beautiful family outing.

Captain Chris will provide you with all the fishing gear, fishing licenses, drinks, and he’ll also clean and fillet your catch for free.

Come and have a wonderful fishing experience with Shem Creek Fishing!
