Charleston Fun Fishing Review & Editor's Notes


The In-shore and near-shore waters of the Charleston area offer anglers tremendous opportunities for excitement!  Sheephead, Redfish, Trout, Flounder, and Ladyfish are among the favorites.  The Ladyfish is an aggressive eater that gives a fight when its on the line.  Charleston waters hold the state record for Ladyfish.


The Redfish, also known as the Red Drum, Channel Bass or Spot-tail, is the most popular sportfish along the coast.  A year-round resident of the area, the Red gives a variety of fishing experiences.  Sight-casting into tailing reds or surf-fishing or chasing schools that number in the hundreds, Redfish offer angling excitement.


Another year-round favorite is the Flounder.  A fish that nestles into the ocean bottom and waits for food to float by, the Flounder especially loves the near-shore wrecks and piers.


Another seasonal favorite is the Shark.  There are great varieties of Shark in the Charleston waters--and many of the state records for Shark were set here. Bonnethead, Lemon Sharks, Blacktip and Nurse sharks are common.  Shark action is nearly non-stop when fishermen get into them.  Hard-hitting and fierce-fighting, the Sharks give anglers a great time.


Off-shore waters hold the fish anglers dream about:  Tuna, Dolphin, Wahoo, Sailfish, and White and Blue Marlin.  The blue waters of the Gulf are about fifty miles off-shore.  Charleston holds the state records for both the Blue & White Marlins.  The state blue record weighed in at 881 pounds; the white at just over 100 pounds.  The speed, the runs and the sky-ward soaring hook anglers into pursuing the Marlin.


The Wahoo is another exciting Gulf resident.  Said to be aptly name for the excitement of having one on the line, the Wahoo is an incredibly fast fish.  When first boated, the Wahoo has brilliant stripes.  Its sharp teeth keep anglers on guard.

Pleasure Cruises

For those not interested in fishing, a History Harbor Tour, Sunset Cruise or  Special Celebration Cruise may be just the ticket.  The natural beauty of the ocean makes your time on the water a great time.  The unique ecology and history of the area offers fascinating info as you gaze on the sights.  Dolphins frolicking, eagles soaring or simply the sunset are sure to please.
