trip description for Trolling Trips with Captain Brad in Mount Pleasant

Launch aboard Captain Brad's fully decked out 26' Center Console for a first-class and productive Trolling experience out of historic Charleston SC. With a background in the US Coast Guard and a resulting 10+ years of experience fishing the Atlantic Coast all the way from Maine down to the Florida Keys, Captain Brad will put all of his knowledge toward getting you on the fish safely and in style! Captain Brad usually likes to launch from the WO Thomas Jr. Boat Landing by the Westmoreland bridge, but there is no need to waste your time hailing an uber or fretting showing up on time, if transportation is a problem Brad is more than happy to come to pick you up! Just let us know where you'd like to be picked up from. Either way, after you get settled in, and Captain brad starts up his twin 150 Yamahas, you will motor out a couple of miles offshore to do some Trolling and fish catching. Trolling trips are great because the boat and the knowledge of your captain do the "boring" part for you. You get to sit back, relax, enjoy the sweet sea breeze while you wait for the reel to start screaming! These trips can be extremely productive as well. If you get into a pod of Wahoo, King Mackerel, or Mahi, Captain Brad 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! You are welcome to get as involved as you would like with your adventure as well, whether you'd rather lounge and chat with the lovely company you've brought on board, or scan the horizon looking for birds or fish activity to help out your Captain, Captain Brad will make sure you have a fantastic time either way. Beyond superior service and luxurious amenities, Captain Brad also provides the best rods, reels, tackle, bait, and fishing licenses you could possibly need for a successful day out on the water. Thus, all you need to bring is your favorite lunch, snack, and drink, your sun protection, maybe a towel, and some good company! Otherwise, Captain Brad will take care of the rest to make the most of your Charleston Trolling adventure! Read More

Captain Linus will provide expert advice on what will be fishing the best that day so listen carefully and heed his advice when deciding how you'd like to spend your day.

Nearshore trips can include a mix of trolling for King and Spanish Mackerel, and bottom fishing the Reefs for Snapper Species and Black Seabass. Targeting the nearshore Reefs, in particular, can result in Cobia and Amberjack as well! Beyond superior service and luxurious amenities, Captain Linus will provide you with top-of-the-line rods, reels, tackle, and bait, specific to whatever type of fishing you'd like to do that day, along with a cooler full of ice and water, and all necessary fishing licenses you will need for a successful day out on the water.

What is mahi mahi fishing in Mount Pleasant all about?

Mahi-mahi, also known as dolphin fish or dorado, are a prized catch among anglers in Mount Pleasant. These colorful pelagic fish are known for their acrobatic leaps and delicious flesh, making them a favorite target for both recreational and sport fishermen. Mahi-mahi are commonly found in offshore waters around floating debris, weed lines, and offshore structures such as reefs and oil rigs. Anglers targeting mahi-mahi often use trolling techniques with a variety of lures and baits, including rigged ballyhoo, squid, or artificial lures.

The waters around Mount Pleasant offer favorable conditions for mahi-mahi fishing throughout much of the year. While they can be encountered year-round, peak seasons typically occur during the warmer months when water temperatures are ideal for their migration along the coast. Spring and summer months often provide the best opportunities to encounter large schools of mahi-mahi as they follow baitfish and other prey species. During these months, anglers can venture offshore in search of floating debris, weed lines, and temperature breaks where mahi-mahi are known to congregate.

Anglers in Mount Pleasant can employ a variety of techniques to target mahi-mahi, including trolling, casting, and live bait fishing. Trolling with a spread of lures and baits behind the boat allows anglers to cover a wide area of water and search for actively feeding fish. Casting with artificial lures such as surface poppers or metal jigs can be effective when mahi-mahi are feeding near the surface. Live bait fishing with small baitfish such as pilchards or ballyhoo rigged on circle hooks can also entice strikes from mahi-mahi. With its rich biodiversity and abundance of fishing opportunities, Mount Pleasant promises anglers an exciting and rewarding experience when targeting mahi-mahi along the South Carolina coast.

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

In Mount Pleasant, the seasons for targeting mahi-mahi vary but generally align with the warmer months of the year. Spring and summer are often considered prime seasons for mahi-mahi fishing in Mount Pleasant, as these pelagic fish migrate northward along the South Carolina coast in search of food and favorable water temperatures. During these months, anglers can expect to encounter large schools of mahi-mahi as they follow baitfish and other prey species. The abundance of floating debris, weed lines, and temperature breaks offshore provides ideal habitat for mahi-mahi to congregate, offering anglers ample opportunities for successful fishing trips.

Late spring and early summer are particularly productive times for mahi-mahi fishing in Mount Pleasant. As water temperatures rise and baitfish become more abundant, mahi-mahi become more active and aggressive in their feeding behavior. Anglers can venture offshore to areas with known mahi-mahi hotspots, such as floating debris, weed lines, and offshore structures, to target these pelagic predators. Trolling with a spread of lures and baits behind the boat is a popular technique during these months, allowing anglers to cover a wide area of water and locate actively feeding fish.

While spring and summer are considered peak seasons for mahi-mahi fishing in Mount Pleasant, these fish can be caught year-round with the right techniques and local knowledge. Fall months may also provide opportunities for mahi-mahi fishing as the fish begin their migration southward along the coast. Understanding the seasonal movements and behaviors of mahi-mahi 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 promises anglers an unforgettable experience when targeting mahi-mahi along the South Carolina coast.

What techniques are popular for catching mahi mahi in Mount Pleasant?

Mahi-mahi fishing in Mount Pleasant employs a variety of effective techniques to entice these prized pelagic predators. One popular method is trolling, where anglers deploy a spread of artificial lures and rigged baits behind the boat while covering a wide area of water. Trolling allows anglers to mimic the movement of baitfish and squid, which are staple prey for mahi-mahi. Skirted ballyhoo, diving plugs, and artificial squid are commonly used lures for trolling, and they are often deployed at various depths to target mahi-mahi actively feeding at different levels in the water column.

Another productive technique for targeting mahi-mahi in Mount Pleasant is using casting and retrieving artificial lures. Anglers use light spinning or casting tackle to cast lures such as surface poppers, metal jigs, or soft plastic swimbaits to where the fish are feeding. Mahi-mahi are known for their voracious appetites and will often strike aggressively at fast-moving lures. This method requires skill and precision casting, as mahi-mahi can be wary and selective at times. However, it can result in exciting and rewarding encounters with mahi-mahi in the waters off the coast of Mount Pleasant.

Live bait fishing is also an effective technique for targeting mahi-mahi in Mount Pleasant, particularly when fish are feeding near the surface or in deeper waters. Anglers often use small baitfish such as pilchards, sardines, or ballyhoo rigged on light tackle to entice strikes from mahi-mahi. 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, drifting with live bait or using kite fishing techniques can also be effective for targeting mahi-mahi in offshore waters. Experimenting with different techniques and presentations can help anglers maximize their success when targeting mahi-mahi in the waters off Mount Pleasant.

What other species are popular in Mount Pleasant?

In addition to targeting mahi-mahi, Mount Pleasant offers anglers a diverse array of other species to pursue, ensuring an exciting and varied fishing experience. One notable species is the king mackerel, also known as kingfish, which inhabits the nearshore and offshore waters along the South Carolina coast. King mackerel are known for their fast runs and powerful fights, making them a popular target among anglers. Anglers often target king mackerel using trolling techniques with live bait, such as cigar minnows or ribbonfish, as well as artificial lures such as spoons and diving plugs. King mackerel can be found year-round in Mount Pleasant, with peak seasons occurring during the warmer months.

Another sought-after species in Mount Pleasant is the blackfin tuna, which can be found in offshore waters around reefs, wrecks, and other underwater structures. Blackfin tuna are prized for their speed and strength, offering anglers a thrilling fight when hooked. Anglers often target blackfin tuna using trolling techniques with artificial lures and rigged baits, as well as vertical jigging and live bait fishing. These pelagic predators can be encountered year-round in Mount Pleasant, with peak seasons occurring during the warmer months.

Furthermore, anglers in Mount Pleasant can target a variety of bottom-dwelling species, including grouper, snapper, and amberjack, among others. Venturing offshore to reefs, wrecks, and artificial structures provides anglers with opportunities to encounter these hard-fighting and delicious species using techniques such as bottom fishing, jigging, and live bait fishing. With its rich biodiversity and abundance of fishing opportunities, Mount Pleasant promises anglers an unforgettable fishing adventure along the South Carolina coast.
