Compass Rose Adventures

(32) Going fast!

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’ 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 even 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 popular trip is also the captain's favorite. It takes him back to his roots, as he grew up fishing the reefs out of Charleston, South Carolina. Once you're out on the reef you never know what you might catch – there is plenty of variety and always lots of action. Your rod could bend from anything from a big King Mackerel, a massive Tiger Shark, schooling Spadefish, or big bowl Redfish. This trip is a great way to get out on the water and bend the rod, testing your skills and catching a tasty lunch.

    This trip is a great way to get out on the water and see all the low country has to offer. Targeted species will depend on the tide and the season. Whether it's Redfish in the tidal marsh, or hungry Sharks in the inlet – you can't go wrong with this trip. You're sure to have a good time as you bottom fish with live bait. Other potential catches could be Seabass, Sheepshead, and Trout, who will make sure you head home with a delicious treat. However a battle with a Tarpon or Snook won't be forgotten soon.

    Stay in the inshore waters along the numerous creeks and get your fish on against some of the seas' biggest predators. Get ready for some heavy lifting and an intense battle as you spend your morning testing your skills against these beasts. Known for their strength, you'll have to use all of yours to get these beauties aboard, but, boy, will the story be worth telling for years to come.
