Offshore / Near Shore Fishing in South Carolina
The Charleston area offers some great offshore and nearshore wreck fishing. The nearshore waters have several wrecks located anywhere from 2 to 30 miles offshore. How far you go out and what the weather allows will determine what you are able to catch. The varieties range from inshore species like redfish, trout, flounder, sharks, etc. to fish found in deeper waters including amberjack, grouper, snapper, cobia, and more.
We have even caught species like Mahi Mahi and sailfish within this range. We typically use a center console boat to head farther out into the ocean. However, these trips are very weather dependent. If the winds and seas are too rough to make this an enjoyable trip we can normally still do an inshore light tackle trip that day.
