Keel N Time Fishing

Keel N Time Fishing Charters specializes in providing fun and exciting adventures on the waters of Charleston that are custom-tailored for you and your friends. Your imagination is the limit when it comes to the type of trips we can do for you!

You’ll be fishing aboard a 17’ Mako Center Console that can take up to 4 anglers. Your fishing gear will be waiting for you, and if your trip requires it, the captain will also provide live bait. The Charleston Harbor is a flourishing fishery, and you’ll find plenty of fun wherever you go. During your trip, you’ll fish inshore waters or up to 15 miles off the beach to fish artificial reefs and wrecks.

Captain Chris has USCG 50 Ton Masters license and is fully insured. He knows these waters well, and has been fishing them for nearly 30 years. He loves having kids on board, and often goes fishing with his 11-year-old son who’s pretty soon going to be a first mate!

The captain is flexible, and to suit your schedule, tides or weather, departure times may vary. If you have any questions about your trip, Capt. Chris will gladly answer. If you want to give your kids a day to remember, just let him know their age and size so that he could prepare life jackets in the right size.

Come fishing for inshore and nearshore species, such as Red Drum, Cobia, Sharks, Trout, Black Sea Bass, Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Tarpon and Bluefish. Dolphin tours, island hopping, and Charleston Harbor cruises are also an option. It’s your trip, so we’ll tailor it to your interests!

All you need to bring is your friends, sunscreen, favorite snacks and plenty of beverages! Capt. Chris will take care of the rest. All licenses, tackle, bait, and ice/cooler/water are provided.

Come experience Charleston from the water with Keel N Time Fishing and have a fishing adventure you won’t forget!

    On this trip we'll have a great time fishing wrecks and artificial reefs just offshore of Charleston. You never know what you are going to catch on the reefs. You might do battle with Shark, or Amberjack (Reef Donkey) or perhaps catch a screaming King Mackerel that smokes the drag on the reel! These trips out onto the ocean are by far that best way to load up your cooler with delicious fish to take home! Note: Nearshore trips are very weather dependent, our back-up plan is inshore.
