D & S Charters - Flats Fishing

1880 Andell Bluff Boulevard
Seabrook Island SC, United States

D & S Charters is run by Captain Darrell who is an avid fisherman, and who loves taking families and children out on the water and showing them a good time. Captain Darrell operates two boats out of the Bohicket Marina on Seabrook Island, and is able to take you to the best fishing spots in the area. He knows these flats very well, and even though he had travel the world, he says this area is his favourite place to fish on the planet.

You will fish on his 17 foot Hewes Redfisher flats boat, which originally built in 2004 and restored in 2016. It is powered by a 90 HP Yamaha engine with a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots, and has a capacity for 2 guests. The boat contains a GPS and a fishfinder to locate the best fishing spots with schools of fish just waiting to bite. It also has life jackets and other US Coast Guard regulated safety features, as well as an icebox to keep the catch fresh, and a wireless trolling motor to make it extra quite when trolling the flats.

D & S Charters will take you fishing in the shallow flats and inshore bays of the Kiawah and Seabrook Islands, which are located some 20 miles from Charleston. These waters are rich in species such as Redfish, Ladyfish, Spotted Seatrout, Flounder, Sharks, Cobia and Tarpon among others. Captain Derrell will provide rods, reels and tackle, which are all brand new as they have all been purchased in 2016. He will also have lures and live bait available depending on what the fish prefer to bite. You will also have a Fishing licence and cleaning and filleting service by Captain Derrell. All you need to bring on these trips is some sunscreen, a hat and a pair of sunglasses. Also, bring food, and drinks in canned or plastic bottles for your own consumption if you wish.

I grew up fishing in the bay's and rivers sourounding Charleston, SC. I have spent my entire life fishing for fun, competition and as a job. I have fished in many exotic locations but by far my favorite place to fish is right here in the South Carolina low country. I love showing my guest what our waters around Kiawah and Seabrook islands have to offer.

We had a great time fishing with Darrell. He is a fun and informative guide and we caught a variety of fish on our trip. We look forward to eating all the sea trout we caught today.

Capt Darrell was a great guide. He was fantastic with my 12 year old son. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and got us to the fish quickly. We even landed 7 different species during the 4 hour trip.
