The ocean is big. Really, really big. You never quite know what might jump on your hook, but we'll always have a plan based on season, weather and your interests. Some days that plan calls for running a couple of hours to deep water to troll and staying on it all day after mahi, tuna, king mackerel or even billfish. Other days call for finding active bottom and hunting sea bass, snapper and grouper. Others, my personal favorite, combine the two. Throw in a cobia or a shark now and again and it's always interesting. Just remember, try as we may, it's still called "fishing", not "catching". We'll also decide early what you may wish to take home. Billfish and sharks, we'll release to catch again another day and to keep our ecosystems healthy. What you wish to keep, we'll be happy to clean and bag for you, and even offer some suggestions on how to prepare if you'd like. For the 2024 season, a 12 hour offshore or combined trip is $2,950. 6 hour nearshore trips are $1,900. 6 passengers maximum, includes bait, tackle, ice, fishing license, soft drinks and water. Does not include alcohol, food or gratuity for the hardworking Mate. Prices subject to fuel surcharge in response to price spikes. Read More

When you consider all of the costs you would incur on your own such as the price of a boat, maintenance, insurance, gas, high-quality gear and tackle, repairs, and more, you’ll find that DIY is sometimes not worth the expense.

Even if you’ve got a great setup already in your home waters, booking a guide also provides a great opportunity to experience new techniques, new locations, or even a chance at a new target species to knock off the bucket list.

What is triggerfish fishing in Mount Pleasant all about?

Triggerfish are a prized catch among anglers in Mount Pleasant, offering both a challenging fight and delectable flesh. These fish are typically found in offshore waters around reefs, wrecks, and other underwater structures. Known for their distinctive appearance with a compressed body and sharp spines, triggerfish are not only a popular target for sport fishing but also highly sought after for their delicious taste. In Mount Pleasant, triggerfish can be caught year-round, but their abundance and accessibility may vary depending on the season and water conditions.

Anglers in Mount Pleasant employ a variety of techniques to target triggerfish successfully. Bottom fishing is a common method used to catch triggerfish, with anglers using baited hooks or small jigs dropped near the ocean floor where triggerfish congregate. Squid, cut bait, or shrimp are popular bait choices for enticing triggerfish bites. Additionally, vertical jigging with metal jigs or bucktail jigs can also be effective for targeting triggerfish around offshore structures. Anglers often use light tackle setups to feel the subtle bites and delicate nibbles characteristic of triggerfish.

While triggerfish can be caught year-round in Mount Pleasant, they are most abundant during the warmer months when water temperatures rise. During these times, triggerfish become more active and migrate closer to shore, offering anglers better opportunities for successful catches. However, triggerfish can be caught in deeper waters even during the cooler months, making them a reliable target for anglers throughout the year. Overall, targeting triggerfish in Mount Pleasant provides anglers with an enjoyable and rewarding fishing experience, whether fishing from a boat offshore or from the shoreline near coastal structures.

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

In Mount Pleasant, triggerfish seasons generally align with warmer months, offering anglers prime opportunities to target these prized fish. Triggerfish are most commonly caught during spring, summer, and early fall when water temperatures are higher and triggerfish activity increases. During these seasons, triggerfish migrate closer to shore, congregating around reefs, wrecks, and other underwater structures, making them more accessible to anglers fishing in offshore waters. Spring and summer, in particular, tend to be peak seasons for triggerfish fishing in Mount Pleasant.

While triggerfish can be caught year-round in Mount Pleasant, their abundance and activity levels may vary depending on seasonal factors and water conditions. Cooler temperatures in late fall and winter can lead to reduced triggerfish activity, as they may move to deeper waters or become less active overall. However, anglers can still target triggerfish during these seasons by fishing in deeper offshore areas or focusing on warmer days when water temperatures are higher. Understanding the seasonal patterns of triggerfish can help anglers plan their fishing trips and increase their chances of success in Mount Pleasant's waters.

Overall, triggerfish seasons in Mount Pleasant provide anglers with ample opportunities to target these prized fish throughout the year, with peak seasons occurring during spring and summer. Whether fishing from a boat offshore or from the shoreline near coastal structures, anglers can employ a variety of techniques to catch triggerfish during their preferred seasons. By understanding the seasonal behaviors and habitat preferences of triggerfish, anglers can optimize their fishing strategies and enjoy rewarding fishing experiences in Mount Pleasant's rich waters.

What techniques are popular for catching triggerfish in Mount Pleasant?

In Mount Pleasant, anglers utilize various effective techniques to target triggerfish, which are commonly found in offshore waters around reefs, wrecks, and other underwater structures. One popular method for catching triggerfish is bottom fishing, where anglers use baited hooks or small jigs dropped near the ocean floor where triggerfish congregate. Squid, cut bait, or shrimp are commonly used as bait to entice triggerfish bites. Anglers often employ light tackle setups to feel the subtle bites and delicate nibbles characteristic of triggerfish, allowing for a more precise and effective hook set.

Another successful technique for targeting triggerfish in Mount Pleasant is vertical jigging with metal jigs or bucktail jigs. Anglers drop these jigs vertically near reefs, wrecks, or other underwater structures where triggerfish are known to gather. Vertical jigging allows anglers to cover a larger area quickly and efficiently, increasing their chances of encountering triggerfish. This method is particularly effective when triggerfish are holding tight to the bottom and may be less responsive to traditional bottom fishing techniques.

Additionally, anglers in Mount Pleasant can target triggerfish by trolling near offshore structures with small lures or rigs. This technique involves slowly moving a boat while dragging lures or baited rigs behind it. Anglers can cover a wider area of water and locate schools of triggerfish that may be actively feeding. Trolling can be a productive method for targeting triggerfish, especially when they are dispersed over a larger area or are holding in deeper water. Overall, employing these various fishing techniques allows anglers in Mount Pleasant to enjoy successful and rewarding triggerfish fishing experiences offshore.

What other species are popular in Mount Pleasant?

Aside from triggerfish, Mount Pleasant offers anglers a diverse array of fish species to target both inshore and offshore. One popular species among anglers is the red snapper, which can be found in the deeper offshore waters around reefs, wrecks, and artificial structures. Red snapper are prized for their delicious white flesh and strong fighting ability, making them a highly sought-after target. Anglers often use bottom fishing techniques with live or cut bait to target red snapper, although they can also be caught using vertical jigging or trolling methods.

Another sought-after species in Mount Pleasant is the king mackerel, which inhabit nearshore and offshore waters. Known for their blistering runs and aggressive strikes, king mackerel are a favorite target among anglers for their thrilling fights. Anglers typically target king mackerel by trolling with lures or live bait along the edges of reefs, shoals, or other structure-rich areas where these fish are known to congregate. Additionally, king mackerel can be caught by bottom fishing with live bait or casting lures from a boat.

Mount Pleasant also offers opportunities for anglers to target species such as black sea bass, flounder, and amberjack in the offshore waters, as well as red drum, speckled trout, and sheepshead in the inshore areas. Venturing into deeper waters to reefs, wrecks, and offshore structures allows anglers to encounter these hard-fighting and highly prized species using various techniques such as trolling, bottom fishing, and jigging. Whether fishing inshore or offshore, Mount Pleasant boasts a wealth of fish species and diverse fishing opportunities, ensuring that anglers of all skill levels can enjoy memorable and rewarding fishing experiences throughout the year.

    Captain Tim was great all through, from early communication/coordination to execution of our 4 hour charter for 4 guys. He showed us how he netted baitfish, then we set up on bull redfish. We were into them quickly and everyone in our party boated fish. Then we relocated because we wanted to try for shark and once again we got on them quickly, and again we all boated fish. Bargain plan, one good size ray was also caught. Highly recommend you try booking Captain Tim.

    Five stars for sure! Tim was great from start to finish, had everything we needed, put us on the fish and went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our time catching fish. Would highly recommend, and one of the unusual things about Tim is, he is a Charleston native. Joe

    Adrian was just awesome! He kept us up to date on weather and was flexible with date/time to make sure we went out at the best time. He got there early to make sure we were all set with plenty of bait and extra rods and reels ready to go. He even had an extra hat and sunglasses for our 16 yo who forgot his. He knew the best fishing spots and locations at each spot. He could cast within inches of his intended target, was very knowledgeable about the fish, and helped us release the sting ray and gar we accidentally caught. Very pleasant, hard working and very experienced! You can’t go wrong with Adrian!

    We had an incredible day fishing with Captain Adrian! He was awesome lining up the best time of day to fish ahead of time thru great communication. While we didn't expect to catch a bunch since we were early in the season, we caught a BUNCH of fish - completely lost count it was such a good day - all catch and release. Adrian did a great job keeping our lines in the water from baiting hooks to fixing a few snags to getting fish off the hooks. Adrian was awesome! Highly recommend!! What a great day...

    Our two boat trip was absolutely electric. First off, Capt. Chris' boat was perfect. For the price point, you'd be hard pressed to find a better fishing charter deal out of Charleston. The second boat in our group was equally as nice. Both boats were super comfortable, we just sat in the back on beanbags and drank beer as we raced out about 40 miles offshore. The guides gave us an in depth safety talk before taking off and took every safety precaution available, they definitely found a happy medium between fun and safety though. They were also very well informed about what was in/out of season, and the parameters for keeper fish. On first drop, we had 2 really nice red snapper hookups. Once that bite ran cold, we wasted no time, hopping around to multiple different locations, filling the cooler up with vermillion and other good eating fish. Even got a few 5+ foot sharks for the young'n that was with us. He was so stoked! We ran into a bit of weather but that didn't phase the guides, they had contingency plans to keep us busy. We elected to run deeper to avoid the thunderstorm that formed between us and the land, which meant we got a few extra hours of fishing (no complaints). The highlight of the trip was chumming up a cobia feeding frenzy right on the surface before we booked it back to the marina. Any time you can topwater fish for cobia, you're in for a treat. We almost landed a trophy cobia before a 8+ foot shark breached the surface and completely annihilated it about 20 feet off the back of the boat. It was so primal, none of us cared that we lost the trophy. I recommend these guys to anyone, beginners or lifetime anglers. Will definitely be using them again!
