Folly Beach fishing report
March 1, 2022
Charter fishing in Folly Beach has been producing some of our favorite sport fish. The inshore fishing in Folly Beach is a great option this time of year. The waters are typically calm making it a smooth outing for anglers of all ages and skill levels. Our inshore fishing charters have been targeting Redfish, Speckled Trout Black Drum and Flounder as they begin to feed more heavily in our warming waters. Deep Sea Fishing charters have been targeting assorted snapper, Wahoo, King Mackerel, Sea Bass and too many other species to numerous to mention. Nearshore fishing at the reefs and wrecks just off the beach have been catching Black Drum, Weakfish, Bluefish, Bull Redfish and Sheepshead. I hope to see you on board!Continue reading
February Charter fishing report
February 4, 2022
Folly Beach fishing charters on Nearshore and Deep Sea fishing trips have been producing good size and numbers of Black Drum, Sheepshead, Redfish, Black Sea Bass and several other species. These fish are aggressively attacking a variety of cut and live baits. We have also found a tendency to score larger fish on big artificial lures such as Bucktail jigs and 5 inch swim baits by jigging around submerged structure and rock piles. Inshore fishing charters out of Folly Beach have been targeting large schools of Redfish both in the creeks and on the flats. The Redfish have been biting live shrimp, mud minnows and smaller soft plastics. We have been having good luck fishing everything slowly in water 1 to 10 ft deep. Many big redfish are being caught and we have had much of the water to ourselves, especially during the week. Keep in mind the fish can be spooky and a quiet approach will help you get more bites. The best thing to do is give them some room and watch how they react to your presentation. We recently had to back off our fish a few times and let them rest for 5 or 10 minutes before making another presentation and hooking up. Soon our short cold spells will give way to longer warm spells then, before you know it Spring will be here! There are plenty of good dates open but with Spring Break and Summer vacation on everyone’s mind a lot of reservations are coming in. Get your Charleston and Folly Beach fishing charters booked now.

Folly Beach Fishing report January 2022
January 4, 2022
Our Fishing charters in Folly Beach have seen plenty of action lately as mild weather and calm conditions have settled into our area. Resident Redfish have begun to gather up in schools on and near the flats and can be seen cruising and sunning themselves at low tide. Black Drum and Sheepshead have moved into the creeks and structure on main river points and reefs. We have been catching Redfish using soft plastic baits by Z-Man and a variety of cut or live bait including shrimp and mud minnows. Light tackle and accurate casts help present our baits more naturally to these wary fish. Black Drum and Sheepshead are foraging on cut and live shrimp which is still plentiful if you know where to net it. We have been using Carolina rigs to get these baits to where the fish are and we have been most successful at the lower end of the tide. The Speckled Trout bite has been good wherever you can find a combination of structure and current. These fish have been taking both plastics and live shrimp very well and when you locate them they seem to be appearing in solid numbers. This time of year the Speckled Trout are often far off the bank so start fan casting 100 feet off the bank and work your way in until you get your first bite. Deep Sea fishing charters at the nearshore reefs have been finding Black Sea Bass, Sheepshead, Black Drum and some big Bull Reds! These bruisers have been cruising the surface chasing live baits. We have been able to catch them on top water plugs, metal jigs and soft plastics. Most of these fish are well over 30 inches long and have plenty of room to run when hooked so when you get connected be ready for a long fight! I expect January to provide lots of action this year so get to my online calendar and get your spot saved. I look forward to seeing you on deck soon! Book online now!Continue reading
December and January fishing forecast
November 24, 2021
Fishing charters in Folly Beach during December and January will usually provide plenty of action. Anglers of any experience level can boat big numbers of Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum and Sheepshead. The Redfish and Speckled Trout eagerly chase down mud minnows and shrimp cast under a float rig. If you want to cast artificial baits to them smaller swim baits by Z-Man will yield you solid results without the complications and cost of dealing with live bait. Black Drum and Sheepshead can be found foraging around docks, oyster beds and rock piles. We drop shrimp, clam strips and Fiddler Crabs directly along the structure to entice these fish to strike. When they do an immediate hook set is required to gain control of the fish before they swim back into the structure for safety. Weather and conditions permitting we will also pursue big schools of Weakfish that have taken up residence at the nearshore reefs. If we are lucky schools of Bull Reds can be found cruising about a mile off of Folly Beach and Charleston. In summary there are no shortage of gamefish to target this time of year so don’t be caught sitting on the couch. Book online now to get on the schedule and lets go fishing!Continue reading
Great fishing in Folly Beach!
October 25, 2021
Fall fishing in Folly Beach is simply the best of the year. The waters around the sandbars and inlets are teeming with Bull Redfish, the creeks and points are holding Speckled Trout, Flounder, Black Drum and Redfish of every size. Bait is typically plentiful and the weather is most often dry and comfortable. If you allow your guide to choose the target species you will likely have a productive, fun day on the water. The last several weeks our Folly Beach fishing charters have been successfully targeting Bull Redfish just off the beach and Speckled Trout inshore. The Bull Reds have been eating mullet, Pinfish and Blue Crab while the Speckled Trout have responded to Mud minnows, Shrimp and artificials. Along with the Speckled Trout we have been catching Flounder, Black Drum and plenty of inshore Redfish so a mixed bag has more often than not been the rule of the day. Follow us on instagram for the most up to date charter results. You can also book directly online or simply call or text **hidden content** for information.

The September bite is hot!
September 1, 2021
Folly Beach Charter fishing in September gives everyone something to look forward to. Big Bull Redfish are piling into the inlets and Jetties, False Albacore and Spanish Mackerel are chasing baits a mile off the beach, big sharks are lurking around the sandbars. Just inshore Flounder, Black Drum, Speckled Trout and keeper Redfish are feeding in our tidal rivers and creeks on live shrimp, mud minnows and all our favorite artificials by Z-Man. Bait is abundant so a few quick throws of the cast net and we have full live wells. There is a feeding frenzy that begins in September and continues through the end of the year. Shorter days and the sudden influx of bait signals to every fish that it's time to eat as much as they can before the water cools down. Let's get you out there to enjoy it with us! Call, text or book online. See you on deck!Continue reading
