Charleston SCCharleston, South Carolina is a beautiful historic city, wonderful to wander around and explore it on foot. Historic sites make Charleston very attractive for visitors, but what makes them fall in love with this city are magnificent beaches of its coastal area. The weather is nice for most of the year. If you are considering coming here to fish, you have all the possibilities to have wonderful fishing time. We will list inshore and offshore species you can fish here, together with the seasons when they are most likely to be found.

Inshore Charleston SC species found year around are: sea trout, black drum, sheepshead, red drum and blue fish. In spring, summer and fall, you can go for inshore fishing and these are the species you will probably catch: flounder, ladyfish and weakfish. Only in summer and autumn you can fish: tarpons and sharks.

Now is the right time to plan your offshore fishing in Charleston, because warm months (from March to November) are the best for deep sea fishing in South Carolina. Some species are present year around, such as: amberjack, little tunny, black and red drum, snapper, black sea bass and grouper.  Deep sea fishing Charleston SC species you can find only in spring, summer and fall (warm months) are: wahoo, billfish, tuna, king and Spanish mackarel, dolphin, tarpon and barracuda.

If you only find the right fishing charter and the captain, you will enjoy your Charleston offshore fishing. But, whenever you come here, of course, don’t forget the sunscreen.
