Charleston Trophy Fishing

Charleston Trophy Fishing goes above and beyond to make your fishing experience one to remember. Join Captain Lee and head out for a fun and productive day in and around Charleston Harbor. Soak in the history Charleston vies as your captain teaches you to reel in your “catch of the day”.

Step onboard the captain’s 19’ Action Craft flats boat. It is a clean and seaworthy fishing vessel that performs well even in very shallow water. The boat’s 150 HP Yamaha engine will power you to the productive spots and the top-notch navigational electronics will save your time when searching for the fish.

Charleston Trophy Fishing welcomes anglers of all skill levels and ages. He will give you a friendly instruction and will assist you throughout the adventure. You will be using top-quality gear, such as Penn reels and Ugly Sticks rods to tackle Redfish, Sheepshead, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, Shark, and many more.

Charters launch from Mount Pleasant and will take you fishing the inshore waters of the harbor, the flats and backcountry. There are many “honey holes” with the best inshore species that are ready to be caught by bottom fishing, spinning, and fly fishing.

The trips are all-inclusive. You will be provided with license, gear, tackle, lures, bait, and fly fishing equipment. When you return to the shore, your captain will clean and fillet your catch so that you could take it home with you. Just bring something to eat and drink, and welcome onboard!
