Deep Sea Fishing in Charleston

"The Holy City" is synonymous with superb angling. How could it not be with the Gulf Stream and Atlantic Ocean at its disposal? But being a proud owner of endless bluewater spots also means being able to explore them. And who better than Charleston fishing charters to show you around and take you on the deep sea fishing adventure of your life?

Deep sea fishing in Charleston is all about trophy catches such as Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Sailfish, Barracuda, Amberjack, Kingfish, and Tuna. While these royals rule the distant offshore realm, some residents prefer structures closer to the coast. Snappers and Groupers, for example, dominate the seafloor around natural and artificial reefs and wrecks.

Charleston offers year-round deep sea fishing opportunities. However, the hottest season of the year brings the best action. Amberjack and Wahoo show up with spring. Mahi Mahi and Tuna wait for summer to shine. Meanwhile, late summer and early fall will bless you with pretty much everything from Barracuda to Sailfish.

By now you've realized that a deep blue pursuit isn't for the faint of heart. Be it trolling, bottom fishing, or a back-breaking duel with a Marlin, deep sea angling in Charleston demands your time, dedication, and perseverance. We're talking about 10-hour trips up to 70 miles offshore. It will be challenging but memorable!

Regardless of whether you choose to stay closer and bottom fish around Charleston’s 60’ Reef or embark on a Gulf Stream and Atlantic Ocean journey, you'll need a certified charter operator. A Charleston fishing charter comes with fishing licenses for all on board, a well-equipped boat, and a knowledgeable local crew. What more could you ask for?

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

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!
