You are welcome to get as involved as you would like with your adventure as well. Whether you'd rather lounge until the reel starts screaming or if you want your hand on the rod the whole time, Captain Brent can make it happen!

Beyond superior service and luxurious amenities, Captain Brent also provides the best rods, reels, tackle, bait, and fishing licenses you could possibly need for a successful day out on the water.

Thes trolling trips are great because the boat and the knowledge of your captain do the "boring" part for you.

These trips can be extremely productive as well. If you get into a pod of Wahoo, King Mackerel, or Mahi, Captain TJ will just keep circling back to catch more and more, until you've caught your limit or your arms get too tired. Wahoo, King Mackerel, and Mahi Mahi, are just a couple of the potential species you could catch while you're out there, and there are plenty more species the productive waters of the Atlantic can offer up! Beyond superior service and luxurious amenities, Captain TJ also provides the best rods, reels, tackle, bait, and fishing licenses you could possibly need for a successful day out on the water. TJ recommends you bring your favorite lunch, snack, and drink items, your sun protection, maybe a towel, and some good company!

Blackfin tuna fishing in Mount Pleasant offers anglers an exciting opportunity to target one of the most prized and sought-after species in the Atlantic Ocean. These sleek and powerful fish, known for their speed and acrobatic leaps, are commonly found in offshore waters along the South Carolina coast. Blackfin tuna are voracious predators that feed on a variety of prey, including small fish, squid, and crustaceans, making them a challenging and rewarding catch for anglers of all skill levels.

To target blackfin tuna in Mount Pleasant, anglers often use specialized techniques and equipment tailored to these fast-moving pelagic predators. One effective method is trolling, where anglers deploy a spread of lures and baits behind the boat to mimic the movement of schooling baitfish. Blackfin tuna are known to patrol the Gulf Stream and other productive fishing grounds in search of prey, making trolling an effective way to cover a wide area and entice strikes.

Another popular technique for blackfin tuna fishing in Mount Pleasant is live bait fishing. Anglers use small baitfish such as pilchards, sardines, or herring rigged on light tackle to entice strikes from blackfin tuna. Live bait fishing requires patience and precision, as anglers must present the bait in a natural and enticing manner to lure in these fast-moving predators. Additionally, vertical jigging with heavy jigs can be effective for targeting blackfin tuna at various depths, particularly around offshore reefs, wrecks, and other structure where these fish are known to congregate. With its rich biodiversity and abundance of fishing opportunities, Mount Pleasant promises anglers an unforgettable adventure pursuing these prized pelagic giants along the South Carolina coast.

What are the most popular months to fish for blackfin tuna fishing in Mount Pleasant?

Spring and early summer are often considered prime seasons for blackfin tuna fishing in Mount Pleasant. During this time, the waters off the coast of South Carolina begin to warm up, attracting schools of baitfish and drawing blackfin tuna closer to shore. Anglers can capitalize on this by venturing offshore to target blackfin tuna in areas where they are known to congregate, such as the Gulf Stream and offshore reefs.

Late summer and early fall also present favorable conditions for blackfin tuna fishing in Mount Pleasant. As the temperatures continue to rise, blackfin tuna remain active in the area's offshore waters, providing anglers with continued opportunities for successful encounters. During these seasons, blackfin tuna can be found feeding aggressively around offshore structures, making them more accessible to anglers using trolling, live bait fishing, or vertical jigging techniques.

While blackfin tuna can be caught year-round in Mount Pleasant, anglers may find that their abundance and activity levels vary depending on the season. Understanding the seasonal movements and behaviors of blackfin tuna is key to planning successful fishing trips and maximizing the chances of hooking into these prized pelagic predators. With its rich biodiversity and abundance of fishing opportunities, Mount Pleasant offers anglers an exciting and rewarding experience when targeting blackfin tuna along the South Carolina coast.

What techniques are popular for catching blackfin tuna in Mount Pleasant?

Blackfin tuna fishing in Mount Pleasant requires anglers to employ specialized techniques tailored to the fast-moving nature of these pelagic predators. One effective method is trolling, where anglers deploy a spread of lures and baits behind the boat to mimic the movement of schooling baitfish. Anglers often use diving plugs, skirted lures, or rigged ballyhoo to entice strikes from blackfin tuna. Trolling allows anglers to cover a wide area of water and search for actively feeding fish, particularly around offshore structures and along current edges.

Live bait fishing is another popular technique for targeting blackfin tuna in Mount Pleasant. Anglers use small baitfish such as pilchards, sardines, or herring rigged on light tackle to entice strikes from blackfin tuna. Live bait fishing requires finesse and patience, as anglers must present the bait in a natural and enticing manner to lure in these wary predators. Drifting or slow trolling with live bait can be effective for targeting blackfin tuna, particularly when fish are holding in deeper water or are feeding near the surface.

Additionally, vertical jigging with heavy jigs can be a productive technique for targeting blackfin tuna in Mount Pleasant. Anglers drop the jig down to various depths and use a rhythmic jigging motion to mimic the movement of injured baitfish. Vertical jigging allows anglers to target blackfin tuna holding around offshore reefs, wrecks, and other structure where these fish are known to congregate. By varying the speed and motion of the jigging action, anglers can trigger aggressive strikes from blackfin tuna and enjoy thrilling battles on the open water.

What other species are popular in Mount Pleasant?

In addition to targeting blackfin tuna, Mount Pleasant offers anglers a diverse range of other species to pursue, ensuring an exciting and varied fishing experience. One notable species is the mahi-mahi, also known as dolphin fish or dorado, which inhabits offshore waters around structures such as weed lines, floating debris, and offshore reefs. Mahi-mahi are known for their vibrant colors, acrobatic leaps, and delicious flesh, making them a prized catch among anglers. Anglers often target mahi-mahi using trolling techniques with a variety of lures and baits, including rigged ballyhoo, squid, or artificial lures.

Another sought-after species in Mount Pleasant is the wahoo, a fast and powerful pelagic predator found in offshore waters along the South Carolina coast.

These fish are commonly found near offshore reefs, wrecks, and drop-offs, where they feed on smaller fish and pelagic prey.
