Compass Rose Adventures

Center Street
Folly Beach SC, United States

Set a course with Compass Rose Adventures and experience some of the most fun fishing that the Lowcountry has to offer. Captain Asheton targets all types of inshore and nearshore species, and specializes in nearshore reef trips when the weather permits.

The fishing vessel is a spacious 21 ft Sea Pro bay boat. With plenty of seating, a large T-Top for shade, and high sides with a safety rail, this is a comfortable and secure vessel for anglers of all ages. The boat is very versatile: its shallow draft allows it to access the narrow creeks of the backcountry, while it is also a comfortable boat for nearshore cruising. There is a large ice box on board for you to keep your drinks cool throughout your trip.

Compass Rose Adventures give you the opportunity to choose between fishing inshore and nearshore aboard the Sea Pro. Inshore, you can expect to catch Redfish, Sheepshead, Trout, Flounder, Black Drum, and many types of Sharks, as well as the occasional Tarpon. At the nearshore reefs, the action is always hot: you can expect to catch all of the inshore species as well as King and Spanish Mackerel, Black Sea Bass, Triggerfish, Jacks, Spadefish, Cobia, larger Sharks and Bull Redfish.

All the rods, reels, and tackle you will need during your trip are provided, although you are welcome to bring your own gear if you prefer. Fishing licenses are also provided by the company. Compass Rose Adventures advise you bring your own drinks and snacks, as well as an icebox you can keep in your car so you can take your catch home with you at the end of the trip.

    This is my favorite trip that we offer. This is the style of fishing that I grew up doing here in Charleston South Carolina and it is my most favorite and popular trip. Once you're out on the reef you never know what you might catch - there is lots of variety and always lots of action. Your rod could bend from anything from a big King Mackerel, a massive Tigershark, schooling Spadefish, or big bowl Redfish. This trip is a great way to get out on the water and bend the rod!

Awesome trip. Captain Asheton was great with some novice fishermen and a 6-year-old first-timer. We were so busy catching fish the trip flew by. Caught some keeper redfish that made for great eating, several bonnetheads, a ray, another shark.
