Fishing in Charleston

You’ll often hear Charleston being referred to as the ‘Holy City’, and anglers will be happy to know the blessings have extended to the town’s historic waterways. The sheltered estuaries of South Carolina are famed for harboring a lavish marine ecosystem, its rivers, inlets and marshes supporting an impressive variety of aquatic life. Your inshore escapades will primarily focus on Bull Reds and Speckled Sea Trout, both readily available for the taking virtually all year round. Fly fishing for trophy Redfish along the area’s many creeks has become an increasingly popular pastime, although offshore game such as Cobia and Amberjack will rarely object to well-presented flies either. Nearshore species including Spanish Mackerel, Sheepshead and Cobia congregate just a few miles from the shoreline around the 19th-century shipwrecks and other man-made structures, where bottom fishing produces an assortment of Snappers and Groupers as well as Triggerfish, Sea Bass, Porgy and more. For the most adventurous of fisherfolk, there’s some incredible bluewater fishing to be done between 20 and 50 miles offshore, where depending on the season you’re likely to be greeted by schooling Mahis, Wahoo, Sailfish, Marlin, Grouper and many other hungry pelagics. Hallelujah indeed!
