Charleston's Premier Inshore Fishing Charter
See why people book their Charleston SC fishing charter with us.
Why does Charleston Silverfox Charters receive the highest five-star reviews for being the best fishing charter in Charleston and have a high rate of return customers? Simply because we believe that fishing is just as much about connecting with people as it is connecting with fish. Many large fishing charter companies focus on volume, I focus on you and making your fishing trip to Charleston unique. I understand that every person is different just like every chartered fishing trip is different. Therefore, when you choose to fish with me you are not squeezed into a time slot that may not be optimal for fishing and because I do not operate on volume I have the ability to schedule your trip for the best conditions to position you to catch the trophy fish you are after.
The most common type of fishing charter in Charleston is an inshore fishing charter. An inshore fishing charter is typically four hours long and we can accommodate up to 6 people per vessel. During these trips, you will have your shot at a variety of inshore fish species. In Charleston, we have a year-round fishery so there is always a fish we can catch.
Our fishing charter guests get the luxury of taking in all the rich history and beauty of Charleston, SC while they are with us. No matter if we are fishing the wrecks on a nearshore charter in the Atlantic Ocean or if we are fishing the flats or creeks on an inshore charter, you will get to explore Charleston from a side that few get to see and take in the abundance of wildlife and historic charm. While we are fishing along the beaches of Charleston, it is very common to see dolphins and sea turtles as we focus on catching a variety of species that vary from Red drum (redfish), Spotted Seatrout, Flounder, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Sharks, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, False Albacore, Cobia, Amberjack, Barracuda, Tarpon, and Jack Crevalle.
As your fishing guide in Charleston, it is my job to place you in the right position with the right equipment to have a memorable catch. I do so by continuing a relentless pursuit of the fish we are targeting while supplying you with the best fishing gear the industry has to offer. Whether you are a single angler looking to fly fish, a couple or family who are new to fishing and just want to experience a fun day on the water or if you are the serious angler looking to get some drag screaming on the wrecks and reefs then I can accommodate your needs.
There are few guarantees you get with fishing, but here are a few you get when fishing with Charleston Silverfox Charters: I, your fishing guide will be at the pickup location on time and ready to fish with a stocked and clean boat. We will have fun and we will catch fish without compromising the safety of your loved ones.

What to expect while on a Charleston fishing charter
In Charleston, we have on average approximately six feet of tide change every cycle. This is a significant amount of tide change when compared to the rest of the coastal states which makes finding an experienced guide an essential piece to making your fishing adventure a success.
Depending upon what season you plan to visit Charleston and book your fishing charter will dictate what species of fish we target as some fish are more productive in certain months according to the water temperature. While redfish are caught year-round other species such as Cobia only become prevalent in the late Spring early Summer season.
When you book your fishing charter with us everything is taken care of (licenses, fees, bait, tackle, gear, ice, bottled water, etc.) All you need to do is show up and have a great time enjoying your inshore or nearshore fishing charter in Charleston.
How late can we book?
It is never too late to call and check. While availability does fill up fast in peak seasons, we will do our best to accommodate you.
What if we don't know anything about fishing?
Not a problem at all. At the end of the trip, you'll know a lot.
What will we catch?
Season dependent, we will have a chance at a wide array of inshore species: Red Drum (Redfish), Spotted Sea Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, Variety of Sharks, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, and Tarpon. Nearshore trips are geared towards Cobia, Amberjack, Barracuda, Redfish, Spadefish, Black Drum, and a variety of others.
How far out will we go/will we get seasick?
We primarily do Inshore charters meaning that we do not venture off the coast, so the risk of seasickness is very minimal.
Can we keep our catch?
We endorse good conservation habits. Therefore, we are primarily a catch and release charter. However, some species can be kept in modest amounts.
What if we book and there is foul weather on our fishing day?
We do our best to accommodate you and the weather. Therefore, if we can move dates and times, we will. If it is a safety concern, then we are not fishing. However, a little foul weather will not deter us from having a great day on the water.
Where do you pick up from?
While I primarily launch from Wappoo Cut Boat Ramp (google the location for Charleston SilverFox Charters), I use a variety of private and public docks and will find the site closest to you and our fishing grounds.
How can we pay?
We accept cash or major credit cards, however, there is a 3% processing fee for credit cards.
What should we tip?
Tips are generally 20% of the cost of the charter. However, I implore you to give as much as you enjoyed the trip.
