Mount Pleasant Fishing Seasons
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
