Charleston Charter Company

If you’re looking for a first-class inshore fishing trip in the beautiful Mount Pleasant area of Charleston, SC, then come aboard Charleston Charter Company and get ready to reel in a huge variety of world-famous inshore and nearshore species! Charleston is home to some of the world’s finest (and most intense!) Redfish fishing, so get ready for plenty of trophy-sized Bull Red rod-bending action.

With over 20 years of experience fishing all around the country and in tournaments, Captain Brandon Hartman will make sure you get to test your skills and hook your dream catch on one of his trips. Although Capt. Brandon loves targeting gigantic Redfish, he’s passionate about guiding his guests to fishing hotspots that contain tasty Sheepshead, Flounder, and even the Silver King (Tarpon).

You’ll be heading out on your adventure on board your captain’s 25’ Sea Fox bay boat. Perfectly built to tackle a variety of inshore and nearshore waters, she has room for up to 6 guests. She’s decked out with top-of-the-line navigational and safety equipment, as well as a wireless trolling motor so you can stealthily sneak up on your trophy fish!

Your captain will have you exploring a variety of areas for your catch, including the backcountry and seriously shallow flats. When it comes to the techniques you’ll be using, he’ll have you trying out everything from spinning, to bottom fishing, to fly fishing. Don’t worry if you’re a newbie who’s never held a rod before – Capt. Brandon loves helping budding anglers learn the tricks of the trade, and will be on hand to help you perfect your technique.

Your trip includes top-quality rods, reels, and light and heavy tackle, as well as lures and live bait to tempt your catch. Want to fly fish? Bring your favorite trusty gear with you. When you return to land, your fish will be filleted and cleaned for you. Your fishing license is included, so come aboard Charleston Charter Company and get ready for a southern-style fishing adventure!
