Holy City Fishing Charters

145 Wappoo Creek Drive
Charleston SC, United States

Holy City Fishing Charters is your answer to inshore fishing in and around Charleston, South Carolina. Join Captain John Fuss for a trip to remember and good quality fish to catch. Captain John has been fishing his whole life in the freshwaters and the salfwaters, and is familiar with all kinds of techniques. He is a patient teacher who loves having kids and families aboard!

You and your crew will fish aboard a 21-foot Sea Pro angler boat originally built in 2003, with a capacity for 5 guests. It is powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine that gives it good speed and stability on the water. The vessel is equipped with the necessary safety gear and features a GPS, a fishfinder,  a livewell for the bait, and a t-top for shade.

Captain John can take you fishing the inshore waters and the Stono, Cooper, Ashley, and Wando Rivers for a variety of species. You can target Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Ladyfish, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Jack Crevalle, Hammerhead and Blacktip Sharks, and many more species that can be found in these abundant waters.

Holy City Fishing Charters will provide you with the fishing gear including rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and a fishing license. You will keep the fish you intend to cook for dinner, and will release the rest as Captain John practices catch and release in order to preserve the local fisheries for future generations.
