Fishing in Mount Pleasant

Mount Pleasant fishing charters combine amazing waters with a warm Lowcountry welcome to give you the trip of a lifetime. This suburb of Charleston has a large fleet of experienced charters that makes the most of every spot and species around.
 
Most charters in Mount Pleasant stay inshore. These shorter trips are perfect for families and fun for serious anglers, too. Explore sheltered marshes, targeting a range of fish with live bait, lures, or even flies. Red Drum, Seatrout, and Flounder are available year-round. In the summer, Tarpon show up for even more action.
 
It’s not all about the shallows. Nearshore charters let you drop baits for reef fish like Black Seabass and Red Snapper. They’re best in winter, but are available year-round. In the summer, you can also troll for King Mackerel. Nearshore trips last 6–8 hours. They’re great for beginners, older kids, and anyone who likes tasty fish.
 
Mount Pleasant also has access to serious bluewater fishing. Deep sea charters take you out as far as the Gulf Stream to troll for big game predators. Wahoo are the spring speciality. By summer, Tuna, Sailfish, and even Marlin join the fun. The best waters are 60-plus miles away, so these charters are often 12 hours long.
 
Most fishing trips in Mount Pleasant leave from the public pier at Shem Creek Park. You can also catch a charter from nearby Charleston or Folly Beach. To make things easier for you, many captains can start from several locations in the area. Just ask!

Rules & Regulations

Fishing licenses are included on all saltwater charters in Mount Pleasant. Anglers aged 16 and up need one to target freshwater fish, though. Most fish species are open for harvest year-round, except Striped Bass, which are closed from June 1 to September 30.

Mount Pleasant Fishing Seasons

January

Start off your new year the right way and head to Mount Pleasant’s inshore waters for some seriously huge Red Drum. Even in winter, temperatures stay mild here, so there’s always something biting!

February

Inshore fishing remains fruitful, with Bull Redfish biting. Around the reefs, Snapper, Seabass, Triggerfish, and make for a real feast. You can even hook Amberjack if you're after a fight.

March

Spring has arrived, and as inshore waters get hotter, so does the Redfish bite! The jetties are particularly plentiful, with Sheepshead making an appearance, too. In shallower waters, you’ll find Speckled Seatrout.

April

Hardcore anglers should prepare for battle – Mahi Mahi and Wahoo have arrived offshore! On land, head to the Blessing of the Fleet & Seafood Festival, which pays tribute to Mount Pleasant’s fishing industry.

May

This is the month to visit if you’re a big game enthusiast, with Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Wahoo all providing plenty of fighting spirit offshore. Inshore, come face-to-gills with various Shark species around the jetties. 

June

Inshore, the “Silver King” makes his first appearance. Offshore, Sailfish and other Billfish begin to bite hard – seasoned anglers can even take part in Mount Pleasant’s annual Carolina Billfish Classic tournament!

July
As the weather hits maximum heat, offshore sportfishing gets better and better. The Wahoo and Mahi Mahi may be smaller than they were early in the summer, but they're joined by the best of the Billfish.
August

August is a great time for Tarpon fishing. Head to the shallow bays and flats to battle your very own “Silver King.” Shark species lurk around the jetties, and offshore, there’s plenty of Tuna to be found.

September

The summer shows no sign of stopping as September rolls around. Billfish and Tuna are still available offshore, while Trout and Flounder dominate the shallows. In short, there are fish everywhere!

October

Shem Creek is bustling with some inshore superstars – Flounder, Snapper, and Speckled Seatrout are all on offer. This the perfect time for a family vacation! Bull Redfish are still hanging around the jetties, too.

November

The inshore bite remains strong, and Bull Redfish are everywhere! Spotted Seatrout and Flounder inhabit creeks and shallow waters. With fewer boats on the water, visit now if you want the fishing grounds to yourself.

December

Don’t let the year end without experiencing Mount Pleasant’s incredible winter-time fishing! Bull Redfish can be found lurking around the jetties and in shallower waters. Head offshore for Grouper and Snapper species.

Plan to dress warm in the morning and shed clothes as the day goes on. The boat we went on will do 20 plus knots so we were glad we layered. I like inshore trips because I’ve sailed blue water all my life and after over 60 years of doing it, I’ve had enough beatings.

Fish early or late. It gets hot if there isn’t a breeze or cloud cover. Spring and fall appear to be peak for most fish in backwaters of the river systems.

Go for the trophy fish in the summer months, shark and bull reds. It is too hot to fish the creeks necessary for trout or smaller reds suitable for eating. The water temperature makes the fish sluggish. Save that type of fishing for colder months.

Started off the morning super brisk plunking and dunking some structure for reds, then moved to some flats along the river but nothing wanted to play so we headed to the jetties for some of those stripped bandits and captain Mike put me right on them and turned out a good trip some delicious eating!!

He worked hard to put us on fish but they weren’t biting well that day. Very enjoyable nonetheless. He was extremely knowledgeable and even changed up the poles and lures to better suit our prior fishing experience. Went above and beyond to make sure we had a good time. Will plan on booking again next time we come down. Thanks!

Could not be happier with the Captain, boat, and fishing. Thought January would be slow fishing but catching 18 reds and a flounder proved to be a great day of winter fishing. Outstanding trip! Will be going back out with Kaleb many more times.

Captain Charlie was a great host and put us right on some fish in a few different spots. Managed our large party well and we each caught a bunch of fish and spent plenty of time rotating. Ended up at a hot spot where all of us caught some monster red drums. Amazing day on the water, all thanks to Captain Charlie! Would definitely recommend. Hope to be back soon!
