Places like Edisto Island, Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island, and the Isle of Palms offer anglers a chance to catch a variety of fish, from big Tarpon to Grouper to numerous other popular sportfish in the area.
Your Charleston deep sea fishing Captain may take you to any number of spots, from going south to the Folly Beach area to heading to some offshore reef or to the Gulf Stream where you will likely find yourself catching some of these amazing Charleston fish!
Year Round Charleston Fishing
With year round deep sea fishing in Charleston, South Carolina provides anglers with a wonderful fishing experience no matter when they may come. The peak fishing season, however, is from the month of March to October. During this time, you have an increased likelihood of catching the assorted fish species in the area, as well as increasing the likelihood of finding yourself reeling in a big one!
In the summer time, flats fishing, which is fishing in the shallow waters, is the preferred way to catch redfish. Your charter captain may take you out to oyster bars or other structures, be they man-made or natural, where you will be able to look out and sometimes see the fish swimming through the waters beneath you. This is also a good way to catch trout, spot-tail bass, croaker, Striped Bass, Cobia, and Tarpon in the spring and summer months. As fun as flats fishing can be we do not offer flats fishing in Charleston as we specialize in larger fish that live in the much deeper waters off the Charleston coast.
But if it's tuna you are looking to find on the end of your line, November and early December ranks as usually the best time to catch them. While trolling is generally the most used method for catching these fish, chunking can also make for an amazing tuna trip when the fish are biting by providing multiple hook-ups, with the fish taking the bait close to the boat.
And if offshore fishing is your cup of tea, Charleston deep sea fishing provides an exciting assortment of fish, including Amberjack, Barracuda, Dolphin, King Mackerel, Marlin, Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, and Wahoo, just to name some. With such a wide variety of fish to snatch, you should have an excellent time fishing in the Gulfstream. And if those still do not strike your fancy, there are even swordfishing trips available, allowing you to fish specifically for this classic trophy fish. There is nothing quite like the experience of catching and mounting a swordfish in your house as a testament to the great time you had fishing in Charleston.
