Offshore trips are always available on one of the larger center consoles. We use Contenders. These trips range from 25 to 70 miles offshore. Typical target species include: mahi mahi, wahoo, tuna, king mackeral, sail fish, and marlin. Live bait trips closer to shore are also available for king fish. Certain times of the year in Charleston will determine what we fish for.
Bottom fishing trips are popular, and are available as well. Typical target species include: Grouper, Snapper, trigger fish, sea bass, and wreck fish. Captain Tim will clean your fish when you return to the dock. Fish cleaning fees may apply.
5hr trip: 5 to 10 miles out, usually wreck fishing. Catches include spade fish, sheepshead, shark,cobia, and barracuda. Good trip for children wanting to experience the ocean for the first time. Catches will vary depending on the time of the year.
6hr and 8hr trips: These trips range from 15 to 30 miles out. They include live bait trolls for large amberjack, kingfish, cobia, as well as bottom fishing for the above mentioned species. These trips are pretty consistent year round. The main difference between the two is that the 6 hr trip goes 15 to 20 mi out and the 8 hr trip goes 25 to 35 mi out. The 8 hr trip provides more bottom fishing than live bait trolling, but does incorporate both depending on the time of year.
10 to 12hr trips: These trips range from 45 to 60 miles out into the gulf stream. Catches include: mahi mahi, wahoo, sailfish, tuna, and marlin. The best times are from April through June when the mahi show up in large schools. We troll the entire time.
