Charleston Fishing Charters

Here at Charleston Fishfinder we offer boating and fishing charters in the Charleston SC and Isle of Palms area. Our business has been in operation for 10 years now and we plan to be around for many years to come. Safety is the number one goal on all of our charters. Big fish, sore arms, and happy customers are very important but none of this matters if we don't all return to the dock safely. Our boats are equipped with all required Coast Guard safety equipment including heavy duty lifejackets, first aid kit and VHF radio communication. Powerboats are inherently dangerous so we try to take every precaution to keep everyone on board safe and sound.


Fishing Equipment

Fishing Equipment can make the difference when it comes down to the wire when trying to land the fish of a lifetime. We make it a point to keep our fishing equipment in perfect condition so that when it comes time to wrestle with the biggest fish you have ever seen you can focus on the fight. We fish St Croix rods and Shimano reels.


Charleston Charter Boats

Our Boats are very well suited for charter fishing in Charleston, SC. The Windsor Anne is a really special vessel. She is a 24' Kenner with a sightfishing tower that is in our opinion, the perfect boat. We can run out to the reef in the morning and buzz back inshore to fish the flats in the same day in the same boat. She can carry six passengers plus the captain with lots of room to spare. She has over 30 rod holders, four stroke yamaha power and the latest in GPS electronics to keep us running smooth and ready for any fish that swims within casting distance.  The Sweet Pea is a 17' Ranger Banshee flats skiff. She is a very simple skiff that is perfect for fishing the shallow bays and creeks surrounding the Charleston area. She is very wide and very stable with a draft of 5 inches. The redfish can run but they cannot hide from this boat! She can handle two anglers and the captain.

Come along and Catch Some Memories with Charleston Fishfinder.

Sheepshead | Charleston Fishing Charters

The fishing and the weather on Isle of Palms have been awesome so far this winter! This time last year everybody I talked to was complaining about the cold. Myself included! I thought I could escape the cold winter down in the Florida keys but after 7 windy days of highs in the 50's and lows in the 40's I quickly retreated home to ride out the winter. This year has been a different story. So far the winter of...

Daylight Savings Time | Redfish Fishing

We started the day off pretty hot. Went out to catch the bottom of the low tide with Charlie and John. Fishing in Charleston in November is about as good as it gets. We had good weather today and an early morning low tide. We started fishing in a couple of small creeks and had some luck.Caught two small reds on the first two casts but had to move on. They must have been the only two in that spot. We...
