Everything You Need to Know About Hilton Head Island, South Carolina Fishing

Hilton Head Fishing Charters

The fishing in Hilton Head is some of the best in the state of South Carolina. Located in the southernmost part of the state, Hilton Head has miles of marshes and tidal creeks behind it, and deep blue waters in front of it. Hilton Head's moderate climate make it a perfect fishing destination year-round. Whether you want to cruise the backcountry chasing Redfish, or head 70 miles offshore to the Gulf Stream, Hilton Head fishing charters have it all.

Hilton Head Inshore Fishing

The inshore fishing around Hilton Head is some of the best in the entire region. If cruising skinny intertidal waters chasing Redfish is your idea of a good day of fishing, you've come to the right place. Beginning in the fall and continuing through the winter, massive bull Redfish move into shallow waters to feed. In the warmer months they can be found in deeper inshore basins and nearshore structure.

When fishing for Redfish, you're always in line to catch Sheepshead, Speckled Trout, or Bluefish. In the summer, migrating Tarpon make their way into the bays and backwaters around Hilton Head in pursuit of schooling baitfish. Hooking up to "The Silver King" is an unforgettable experience, and people come from far and wide for their shot at these prehistoric creatures.

Hilton Head South Carolina Deep Sea and Offshore Fishing

While Hilton Head is generally considered an inshore fishing destination, the offshore and deep sea fishing is equally solid. There are countless artificial reefs and ship wrecks accessible by a short boat ride, or legendary deep water locations like the R7 and R8 Navy platforms about 50 miles off Hilton Head Island's coast. For the charters that run closer to shore, trolling or bottom fishing around sea floor structure produces Grouper and Snapper species, as well as Cobia and Kingfish (King Mackerel). Heading further out to sea will bring Pelagic beasts like Wahoo, Mahi-Mahi, Tuna, and billfish species.
