August 28, 2022 Folly Beach 2 photos
Great fishing in Folly Beach recently. The Redfish and Speckled Trout bite has been good, large sharks, Spanish Mackerel and some 20 plus pound Bull Redfish have been caught in the inlet. Fish have been eating live and cut bait. For those that like to cast artificial baits the fish have been striking top water lures all day! Let me know in advance if you are interested in fishing with artificials. This is typically the beginning of the best fishing of the year. Get a spot on deck by making your reservation now!

Folly Beach fishing in December
November 30, 2022
Charter Fishing in Folly Beach! December is one of the best months for fishing inshore for Redfish and Speckled Trout. These fish feed heavily in advance of our short winter, and now is the time to boat large numbers of quality fish. We typically focus on fishing for large schools that gather around shallow creeks and river bends, using live shrimp and minnows that are still abundant in our waters. For the angler that likes more of a skill based fishing charter we can target those fish with a variety of lures. We will cast soft plastic swim baits and crank baits. In my opinion nothing is more fun than feeling the fish attack your lure as you are working the bait past them. When you feel the fish inhale your bait a swift hook set will will get you connected and ready to do battle! On Calm days we will venture to our nearshore reefs to fish for Sheepshead and Weakfish. Both these species gather in large numbers to intercept baitfish as begin to head to deeper waters for our short winter. We will also expect to see large Black Drum ranging from 10 to 30 lbs. at those reefs. When those tough fish inhale your bait you need to lean back and lift your rod back to turn their heads away from the rocks or you may lose them to the rocks. As always it’s best to book in advance online but feel free to text or call with questions or to book directly with us. Or weather cancellation policy is more liberal in the winter and late morning start times are more common. I would love to see you on deck this winter so let’s get you out there to enjoy some of the best fishing Folly Beach has to offer!Continue reading
November fishing is the time for big num
November 7, 2022
Charter Fishing in Folly Beach in November is hard to beat. This is the time of year our inshore Charters can boat big numbers of Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum and several other species. 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. Nearshore reef fishing is also great this time of year. Black Drum and Sheepshead can be found foraging around 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 is no shortage of game fish to target this time of year so don’t be caught sitting on the couch. Call or text to get on the schedule and let’s go fishing!Continue reading
Great Fall fishing in Folly Beach
October 3, 2022
Fall Fishing charters in Charleston and Folly Beach! You don’t want to miss fishing this time of year folks. Fishing In Folly Beach is great in the creeks and shallow water flats. Fishing in Charleston has been good along the jetties for big bull Redfish, Sharks and multiple other species. The waters around the inlet and Lighthouse are teeming with baitfish, the creeks and points are holding Speckled Trout, Flounder, Black Drum and Redfish of every size. Bait is typically plentiful throughout the system 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. On our last few charters we 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 me 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. Let’s get out on the water together!Continue reading
