Nearshore Fishing Charters

Nearshore fishing typically means you are fishing within sight of land. You can fish in the ocean without going all the way to the Gulf Stream. There are a variety of nearshore reefs, wrecks and beaches around Charleston offering a variety of species of fish to catch. These intermediate trips range from 10 to 30 miles offshore. Anglers can spend their time bottom fishing or trolling.
