Low Country Redfish

Light Tackle for Charleston's Marsh and shallow waters

Charleston, South Carolina's estuaries are home to some of salt water's most sought after gamefish. We have a very healthy Redfish (Red Drum) population, which is a low country personal favorite. Trout, Flounder, Black Drum, and the occasional/seasonal Tarpon are all species in our inland marshes.

There are many other species of fish that we catch as bi-catch as well, such as Bonnet Head Sharks, Lady Fish, and Stingrays. With Fins and Flies Charters you are able to choose your own battles!

I can offer both sight fishing with light spinning rods or bait fishing. We can target certain species and customize your charter to your liking. Whether it's baitfishing with your children at first, then sight fishing for the second half, or just baitfishing the whole time to see how many we can catch, Fins and Flies Charters can accommodate all your needs. Maybe we sight fish the whole time and hunt them down, we can do that. Equipped with an 18' Hell's Bay Skiff, we'll be able to provide flats fishing in skinny water for Redfish, or work a bank for trout, redfish, and the occasional flounder. On a really nice day we are able to go nearshore for other species such as Spinner Sharks, Bull Reds, Tarpon, Sheepshead, Cobia, Spadefish, etc.. All bait, tackle, licenses, and water will be provided.

More about our Light Tackle Charters


charleston fly fishing

Here in Charleston, SC the almighty Redfish (Red Drum) reigns as king of the flats in our salt marshes. With large tides that sometime get as big as seven feet, we are presented with several options of how we can approach them with the fly. From low water exposed pluff mud flats to flooded spartina grass flats, we choose our flat fishing approach based on time and size of tide, season, and recent trends. Since our tides are so big and span six hours, we are presented with periods of time in which these flats are fishable based on water depth.
