Charleston and Folly Beach fishing in May! By this time of year our Folly Beach fishing trips and Charleston fishing charters are out most days and having good results most of the time. Deep Sea and Inshore fishing charters are catching many different species of gamefish. Recently we have been able to target Bull Redfish, Sharks, Flounder, Spanish Mackerel, Speckled Trout, Black Drum and more on a daily basis. The water temperature has been hovering around the high 70 degree mark for awhile now, so plenty of species have moved in from offshore into our coastal waters. Unless we have strong winds we have been fishing in the creeks a little less and spending more time fishing the grasslines, inlets and jetties. Warm water and plenty of natural bait has all our local game fish feeding on a more consistent basis. Folly Beach has endless miles of shoreline to fish and Charleston has so many depth changes to explore we have been leaving the dock with over a dozen fishing rods stowed, just so we can be prepared for anything. Nearshore fishing charters have been catching Big Redfish, Black Drum other bottom fish. We have been fishing the reefs and rock piles closer to the beaches and there has been plenty of activity there. This is a great time of year for all kinds of anglers. Our fishing charters range from 3 hr trips to 10 hour trips and start at $400. We are happy to host everyone from beginners of any age to seasoned anglers, we will be able to put together a great experience for you. I suggest you make your reservations as early as possible. The schedule is filling up!

I would recommend people fishing here for the first time to book a Charter with Captain Jeff and Drumroll charters. He has fished here all his life and he knows the waters. I personally like beach and ocean fishing, but the Captain knows how to fish in the rivers and lakes as well. So the short answer is, Yes I would recommend people fish the Folly beach area for there first time.

The weather was great, and the intercoastal waterway that Folly River is was calm. The Captain knew the bathymetry and got on some sweet spots.

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.
