If you're prone to motion sickness, get the herbal non-drowsy stuff they have at Walmart. At times, we were rocking pretty hard and that med worked great for us! Also, take suntan Lotion and a long sleeve shirt.

If you're coming in July, be prepared for some hot fun! Be patient, as the heat effects the fishing and its hit or miss. Pick a highly recommended guide, like Brian at Heritage Charters, to ensure you have the trip possible and a fun guide to keep ya going, even if the fishings slow!

Like all SC weather, it changes often. Be prepared to reschedule or to take a trip with conditions that are less favorable than you might want. If you do not get sick easily, take a chance and get your hook wet!

Captain Brian out on us on the fish. Other boats moved by us as we were catching fish.

If you are not used to the heat and sun, make sure you have the right protective clothing, sun screen and drink water.

If catching fish is important and you have flexibility, book charters seeking red drum during low tide. If low tide is in the morning, book morning, and vice versa if low tide is in the afternoon…

I would definitely recommend this fishing charter. Our captain was super fun and very knowledgeable about the fish we caught. Kids had a blast.

This was our first fishing trip to Charleston. While our trip was semi-productive, I think later in the year (May-June) is a better time to go.

Sharks were all we caught. Which was fun. Would have liked more reel time , even if smaller. But it was a good time!

Booking when it is this warm, book at least 6 hours so the charter can go to deeper water where the larger fish have migrated to.

If not familiar with the rough waters, keep your stomach empty, bring water to drink.
