When people think about Lowcountry Fishing, they usually think Redfish. Redfish offer us a year round target. Our Redfish are plentiful, hard fighting, delicious and usually willing to eat (making them the ultimate inshore target).
In addition to redfish, our waters offer Speckled Trout, Flounder and Sheepshead as ideal year-round saltwater targets.
Warm water brings variety. As water temperatures rise in the spring, we will start to see Cobia (around April). Cobia generally stay in the river until the water temperature breaks into the 80s, and will continue to be caught randomly through the rest of the summer. With the heat of summer, Tarpon, Jack Crevalle, Triple Tail, Ladyfish and Bluefish show up to add to the excitement.
The nearshore waters off the Lowcountry Coastline contain several reef systems. While many of them are artificial, there are also many live bottom ledges. These reefs are teaming with sea life such as Grouper, Snapper, Black Sea Bass, triggerfish and other bottom fish which are prominent year-round. Summertime waters bring us massive amounts of Cobia, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Barracuda, Bluefish and Sharks. Yes: Sharks. Sharks. Sharks.
Although South Carolina’s blue water fishing is not as famed as the North Carolina coastline, our Gulfstream fishing (while a little further out) is still top-notch. Dolphin, Wahoo, Tuna, Sailfish, White Marlin, Blue Marlin and Swordfish can be found nearly year-round, not to mention some of the most un-pressured bottom fishing on the eastern seaboard. Perhaps the best thing about being so far from the Gulf Stream --other than hurricane protection -- is the fact that our blue water sees very little fishing pressure which helps provide an ideal setting for your next excursion.
