In the Spring and Summer Months the Inshore waters around Charleston starts to warm up and large schools of baitfish like glass minnows, menhaden, and mullet move in following a variety of inshore Game Fish into Charleston harbor, inlets, creeks, beaches, and wrecks.Large Speckle Trout, Flounder, Black Drum, Lady fish, Sheep head, Spade fish, Spanish mackerel, Jack crevalle, Cobia, Tarpon, variety Sharks, and Big Bull Reds call Charleston Inshore waters Home in the Summer Months.This is Charleston Fishing at its Best!! This is a great time of the year to get on some early morning top water action for Speckle Trout & Redfish and my favorite time of the year to catch some of the Biggest Speckle Trouts of the season 6lbs + either on Flys, Top-water or Live bait .In the flats schools of Redfish are still found on lower stages of tides in groups ranging from 20-100 Red fish feeding on shrimp, crab, and finger mullets.Some Redfish can be seen cruising with there backs out of the water feeding on Shrimps with a packs of Sea gulls hovering over top of the Redfish looking for easy meal what a cool sight and a Great Bite on Light Tackle & Fly Fishing gear.This is the beginning of prime season for Tailing Redfish on the Flood tides that carries on through the season.This is a great time for the novice Fly Fisherman to try His/Her skill at catching their first Redfish on Fly, whether by Wading or by Boat. Lady fish, Bonito, Spanish Mackerel, and Jack Crevelle up to 30lbs + can be found busting on schools of baitfish in the Harbor and jetties and can be a lot of fun with Light Tackle & Fly Fishing gear. Cobia, Amberjacks, Barracudas and Spade fish are on the inshore/nearshore wrecks and bouys. Tarpon will move in around mid June and hang out till mid September these fish are caught around Charleston Harbor and Bulls Bay area and mostly fish on Light Tackle ether with Live/Dead Baits anchor/drifting and chumming.


In the Fall and Winter Months, it is still a good time to seek out the Tailing Redfish on flood tides but most the fishing is better on the lower satges of the tide. Cooler weather means Artificial bait time!! The water temperatures begin to cool, and the Shrimp and Finger Mullets start to move out of the flats and creeks and make there way to the ocean.This is when Charleston Fishing Inshore Bite for Redfish and Speckle really turns on !! As the water cools and starts to clear up, large groups of Redfish school up on the Mud flats, with as many as 100-300 fish in a foot or less of water cruising the flats looking for anything to eat.This is Sight fishing at its best and can be a lot of fun with Fly/Light tackle.Charleston has some of the Best Redfishing on the East Coast at this time of the year and catching 20+ Reds Sight Fishing is not uncommon on Flies/Artificial Baits. Speckle Trout action can be great at this time of year with schools of fish being caught on waterways, inlets, and creeks.At this time of year its not uncommon to catch 30-100 Speckle Trout when conditions are right!! these to can be taken on Fly /Light Tackle and are a lot of fun and make great table fish. Some good Surf fishing in the early part of fall for the Big Reds in Bulls Bay/Cape Islands ether fish out of the boat or shore.can be alot of fun catching these Giant Red Drums around the sandbars and bearkers.Black Drum and Sheep head will start moving out to the jetties and Inshore wrecks for the Winter and can be caught good numbers on Light tackle. American Shad show up in late winter through early spring on the lakes and rivers and can be a lot of fun on Ultra Light Tackle & Fly Fishing Gear.This is one of the oldest fisheries Around.
