Offshore Fishing in South Carolina

Offshore fishing was a passion that turned into an addiction. One fish lead to another, and I can't get enough. I love to share this addiction with others. What is so fascinating is that you really never know what will come up and crash your bait. It sends chills and goose bumps through the body.

As with our striped bass, offshore fishing can be split into seasons: winter, spring, summer, and fall.

Winter - November brings in cold weather. The pelagics migrate from the U.S. North East and travel just past our South Carolina coast. You will have the opportunity to catch yellow fin tuna, sail fish, wahoo, and dolphin. As it grows colder toward Christmas, most of the pelagics will have moved south and the true monsters of the ocean will bless us with a two month appearance - Blue Fin Tuna. These truly amazing giants weigh from one hundred fifty to over seven hundred pounds. We target giant blue fin tuna from late November through January. With colder weather, grouper and snapper will move from the continental shelf to live bottom areas in 60 -90 feet of water.

Spring - Late March will start the migration of the pelagics again. The dolphin and tuna will show up and become more plentiful with each week. By June, the South Carolina coast becomes one of the best areas to fish in the world. Our Carolina cost will be literally alive with every species of fish: tuna, dolphin, wahoo, cobia, king and spanish mackerel, marlin, sailfish, grouper, and snapper. If you want to load the boat, this is the time to go!

Summer - As the water and weather heat up our king mackerel fishing will be getting does as well! This is the time to book a trip for king mackerel. Learn how the pros do it! We will teach you how to prep and catch bait, rig, and catch that smoker king.

Fall - Still the time to catch mackerel. During this time of the year the fish will swim just off the beach and it's a blast! You can catch a lot of kings within sight of land 10 - 50 pounders are possible. Further offshore, expect your choice of all the pelagics.
