FishWater Outfitters offers fly-fishing charters and inshore fishing trips in and around the Charleston area, South Carolina. The company is run and operated by Captain Braden, who is an experienced and professional guide. His goal is to meet your specific needs and to make sure you have the best day on the water.

FishWater Outfitters will take up to three guests stalking the fish on board an 18-foot Hell’s Bay flats boat. It comes powered by a 115 HP Mercury engine and is fully equipped with top-notch navigational electronics, a live bait tank, and an ice-box for the catch and the refreshments. In addition to having a perfect command of his boat, Captain Braden is a Hell’s Bay Professional Guide.

Fishing in the South Carolina Lowcountry offers endless possibilities for catching the fish of your dreams. The area of Charleston has a large expanse of saltwater estuaries, which are home to Redfish, Flounder, Black Drum, and Speckled Trout.

The FishWater Outfitters season goes throughout the fall, winter, and spring months. While Captain Braden poles the boat and gets to the fish, you will be able to prepare yourself for your next cast. Even if it’s your first time on the water, you don’t have to worry. Your age and expertise don’t matter: FishWater Outfitters welcome anglers of all skill levels. Whether it’s a half, three-quarter or a dull day charter, you will get an opportunity to catch the fish on fly or light tackle and learn about the local ecosystem and fish species.

A fishing trip with FishWater Outfitters comes inclusive with fly-fishing equipment, gear, tackle, bait, lures, and licenses. Captain Braden will send your catch home cleaned, filleted, and ready to go into the frying pan. You will also be offered drinks and snacks during the trip.
