Based on 24785 reviews by FishingBooker anglers

January

Explore the saltwater flats in the winter, and experience a productive fishing trip. Fishing inshore for large schools of Redfish will yield some great results!

February

With temperatures slowly increasing, and rain becoming rarer, this is a great time to head out on the water and try a bit of fly fishing.

March

With spring steadily approaching, the fish are becoming more active. You can target Cobia, and Redfish are biting hot!

April

Cobia fishing is very productive this time of year, and as the temperatures rise, a day on the water is a great option to escape the heat.

May

Exploring the inshore flats will provide you with great opportunities to target Redfish, Trout, and Flounder. Expect to reel in some big Sharks as well!

June

This is when the fishing gets really exciting! You can have a lot of fun reeling in big Redfish and Trout, as well as some monster Shark specimens.

July

In July, huge Redfish are lurking everywhere, so you can expect to catch some big creatures inshore. This is when tourism heats up, so expect to have a great time on water and land.

August

This is the best time of year to target Tarpon, as they are in peak season. You can have a great adventure trying to catch a big “Silver King” on the fly.

September

As summer is slowly coming to an end, the temperature and the storms cool down. Fishing the flats is still productive when it comes to Tarpon, Redfish, and many more.

October

With temperatures slowly dropping, inshore fishing is very enjoyable. This is a great time to target Trout, as well as Sheepshead, Red Drum, and Flounder.

November

With tourism dropping, this is a great time to just relax and enjoy spending some time in nature. Trout is biting around underwater structures, and Red Drum is still a great target.

December

There’s a lot of inshore species you can target in December, so don’t hesitate to head out on an adventure in the flats. Redfish, Trout, Sheepshead, and much more are biting hot.

The morning trip was great, it was perfect weather early in the day. Wear good water shoes because our feet got wet but you want to make sure you have secure footwear while reeling in the fish.

Definitely bring lots of water, snacks, and sunscreen. No bananas, they are bad luck. Breathable long-sleeved shirts a neck gator, a hat, and nice polarized sunglasses will help keep you out of the sun. Be willing to listen, you'll learn a lot.

Absolutely the captain was very patient with us our fishing skills were a bit rusty, but he remained extremely friendly with us and taught us where to fish and how to feel them in. He definitely has enough knowledge to teach anyone how to get into some fish.

Captain Rob was excellent from start to finish. He was in constant communication, answered all of our questions, and gave my 9 year old daughter a great fishing experience. Even as a bumch of beginners, we caught quite a few redfish, some flounder, and even a shark! He lead us to some great fishing spots and knew the intracoastal waterway extremely well. My family would not hesitate to book with Rob again. He is simply the best guide in the Kiawah/Seabrook area.

Great day out - made all the better by Cody doing his best to get us on the fish. He also taught us all some new techniques and created a fun atmosphere for our time with him. We caught a few good eating fish, but also enjoyed those that we let go, including a very large redfish. Great experience with a great Captain

Captain Brian knows his fish and where to find ‘em. If you don’t catch anything, then either you’re not listening to the Cap or you’ve pissed off Neptune. Caught reds, blues, whites, flounder, pin fish, trout, small puffer fish and grouper and 3 bonnethead sharks (really 4 but we lost 1 before we could get it up to the boat). Great time with me and my 16 year old who thought it was awesome (high praise from a 16 year old)

Never fished east coast and so this is first time for me and my kid. Captain Hawkins was super knowledgeable and will teach you the proper way to catch, fight and handle the fish. We started the day early on Captain's recommendation and that was a blessing because SC is nice and toasty. Ice cold water were provided and the captain will help you do almost everything except fighting the fish. I will definitely revisit Captain Hawkins again when I am back in Folly Beach.
