Inshore Fishing Charleston, South Carolina

Inshore fishing in Charleton, SC, provides a year-round fishing of coastline that truly makes the South Carolina Lowcountry an inshore angler's paradise. Just minutes from downtown Charleston lies some of the best inshore fishing in the southeast. Bring family or friends and enjoy a fun, productive day of fishing with Angler Management.

Two of our major factors for fishing successfully year-round are tides and water temperatures. As spring rolls around, and the waters start to warm, I enjoy fishing for redfish in the spartina grass and mud flats. These fish feed in shallow water and can be seen with their tails sticking completely out of the water (tailing). Sight casting artificial or live bait are two excellent ways to catch these hard-fighting fish. Sea trout, flounder, ladyfish and blues are plentiful this time of year as well.

During the summer months, when the waters get into the upper seventies to lower eighties, I enjoy fishing the inlets for Jack Crevalle, King or Spanish Mackerel. All three of these fish are hard fighters and extremely fun to catch. This time of year also brings in the tarpon. These fish, nicknamed the Silver King, have become quite a trophy fish in Charleston. The fish produce reel screaming excitement every time they are hooked, no matter what size they are. The redfish are always here and can be caught lurking under and around structures such as docks, pylons, or oyster beds. Other summer species include trout, flounder and many different species of shark.

Fall and winter bring schooling juvenile redfish together in droves. Schools range anywhere from twenty to two hundred fish, weighing from five to fifteen pounds or more. Sight casting on the flats for these monster fish is a favorite of mine. Anyone who enjoys fishing for reds shouldn’t miss out on this amazing event. Fall/winter also brings on the annual trout runs. Fishing with jigs or live bait, trolling or casting, the anticipation is heart-pounding.

I furnish Penn reels and new top-of-the-line rods for in-water fishing. Penn reels and Penn Powersticks for when we go for the “big ones”. If you want to use your own tackle, don’t hesitate to bring it. The trip includes rods, reels, tackle, license, bait and ice.

Come, join me in this fisherman’s paradise for a fantastic day of Charleston Inshore Fishing with us the water.

Ethan was awesome to hang out with for the morning and gave our group a great time. He was relentless in his pursuit of finding the ideal fishing spot for us, which paid off in some awesome fish. I would highly recommend Ethan to anyone hoping for a relaxing time catching great fish.

Ethan was awesome. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable. He put us on fish in a variety of locations and water types. He was great to talk to helped us newbies to understand how to best catch the fish. It was a great experience and I certainly recommend him to anyone. 


Captain Ethan was great! We had a mix of small kids and teenagers with us, some fishing for the first time, some avid fishers. He was patient, a great teacher, and knew which spots to hit with the time that we had. We ended up booking a second half day with him, it was so much fun. Definitely worth the money.
