Lil Darlin Charters

2408 Maybank Highway
Charleston SC, United States

Lil Darlin Charters runs a variety of fishing trips around the fishful waters of Charleston. These fisheries are home to inshore finest species - Spotted Seatrout, Redfish, Black Sea Bass, and Tarpon, but that’s not all! Lil Darlin will take you the reefs to battle the mighty Cobia.

To make this happen, it’s best you go fishing with a Charleston local. Captain Lindsay has over a decade of fishing experience, and knows these waters like the back of her hand. She will provide tips and tricks on how not to lose fish. Both serious anglers and novice fishermen will find something to like, and youngsters will love seeing the fish bite and the line tighten.

Whether you want to fish inshore, or head to the reefs, Captain Lindsay’s boat has what it takes. You will be fishing from a 24’ Sea Fox 240 Viper center console, built in 2016. The boat is powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine, and has space for up to six guests.

Once onboard, anglers will find a an ice box full of ice and water for refreshments, and the cool of the shade under the T top. The boat has the standard navigational electronics, and stores the required safety equipment.

When you head out, Captain Lindsay will provide the fishing gear. Rods, reel, and tackle made by the renowned Penn are supplied onboard. No need to take out the fishing license - Captain Lindsay has done that for you. She will also clean your catch so that you can savor a tasty meal after the trip and reminisce the drag screaming.

Remember to bring sunglasses, a cap, and a non-spraying sunblock. Also, pack your snacks and favorite drinks. You’ll want to wear comfortable clothes while onboard, non-marking sole shoes, and an extra layer of clothing might be a good idea.

Once all ready to go, hop onboard, and let the excitement kick in. Captain Lindsay will be with you along the way, so you can recharge your batteries around the Charleston fisheries.

Great captain, mate, and boat.  The fish didn’t cooperate most likely due to the speed to the tides that day but it was a very nice day on the water.  I would highly recommend this charter to anyone.

She was like fishing with a friend, she was the only one who caught anything out of the charters that were fishing around us and caught bait first so we were fishing for a while before any other boats showed up. As a fisherman with my own boatI was well aware that not every trip do catch a lot of fish. We had a great time and give high marks for the effort she put out to catch fish and give a pleasant day on the water. Would book another day.
