According to customer reviews, Captain J Hook Fishing Charters, Captain Kaleb Charters, and Fishnut Charters are some of the most popular fishing charters in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. Full list of top fishing charters in Mount Pleasant.

Captain J Hook Fishing Charters, Captain Kaleb Charters, and Fishnut Charters all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Mount Pleasant.

The most popular fish species you can target are Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, and Black Drum. Top fishing techniques include light tackle, spinning, and bottom fishing. Inshore fishing, nearshore fishing, and flats fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

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.

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.

We fished from 2pm to 7pm. We had luck with black drum and red fish under the docks with shrimp fishing on the floor...we caught the largest spotted trout with shrimp on floating corks near the shorelines between 6pm and 7pm when the wind was calm.

Fish were slow today but didn’t stop Captain Dennis from finding the fish. All of us caught fish - trout, redfish, bluefish, kingfish and some we didn’t keep either. Always had bait on the hook and kept us on spot. Thanks Captain for a great day with my sons.

Captain Chappy is a good, personable guide. He gave appropriate feedback to less experienced fishermen without being harsh. He put us on the fish with a good balance of “wait and see” and moving on to next spot to find the fish. Would book again with Captain Chappy. Thanks.

Captain Jesse was awesome! Right on time, great conversation, excellent boat and gear. We had a 4 yr old with us and he was very patient with him! He was very knowledgeable about the area and the fish. The boat was immaculate and equipment in great condition. He was working the entire time to keep us on fish and lines in the water. We would 110% book with him again. Definitely can’t say enough good things.

My son and I had a blast on our trip with Happy Dog. Capt. Chris brought us to three different spots, staying longest at the most productive one. We each ended up reeling in three or four good-sized red drum as well as a shark and a keeper trout. We're novices and Chis gave us all the help we needed. I'd highly recommend booking a trip with him!
