FishWater Outfitters - Folly Beach

FishWater Outfitters specializes in inshore fishing and fly fishing trips throughout the Charleston area, departing from Folly Beach, South Carolina. Captain Braden is a professional and experienced guide who knows the zone like the back of his hand. If you want to pursue Redfish and other saltwater species in the South Carolina Lowcountry with the best guide in the area, look no further.

Step aboard an 18-foot Hell’s Bay flats boat, which comes powered by a 115 HP Mercury engine. Captain Braden is a Hell’s Bay Professional Guide and is very familiar with how to operate one of the company’s best riding hull. It is fully equipped with a safe poling tower, as well as modern navigational electronics, which include a GPS, a VHF radio, a fish finder, and a radar. An ice-box is fitted on board the vessel for your catch to stay fresh during the day.

Folly Beach fishing is an exciting opportunity to check what the marshes, coastlines, and estuaries in and around Charleston have to offer. The spartina grass and oyster mounds are home to Redfish, one of the most sought-after fish in the local waters. And it’s also very fun to catch!

FishWater Outfitters runs the season throughout the fall, winter, and spring months. Winter is the best and most productive time to hunt for large schools of Redfish, which are easy to spot in a very clear water. Captain Braden will quietly pole the boat while you prepare yourself for the next cast. As well as stalking Redfish, you will be able to hunt for Spotted Seatrout, Flounder, and Black Drum.

FishWater Outfitters offers four, six, and eight-hour packages for up to three guests. Captain Braden can cater to all skill levels and ages, always willing to teach his clients how to make a great catch possible. The trips come inclusive with fly fishing equipment, as well as rods, reels, tackle, bait, and licenses, and can be tailored to meet your specific needs. Captain Braden will also offer drinks and snacks during the trip.
