The Best Time for Inshore Fishing
Inshore fishing offers year-round fishing opportunities, with redfish being the primary target. Fall is the best time for inshore fishing, as all the inshore gamefish are actively feeding. During the coldest months of the year, redfish will school up in shallow bays and creeks, allowing anglers to see fish for them in water less than a foot deep. As the water warms and life returns to the marsh, more species become available such as flounder, sharks, speckled trout, tripletail, and black drum.
What to Expect on Your Fishing Trip
When booking an Edisto Beach Fishing Charter, you can expect a customized experience tailored to your preferences. The charters are led by experienced and knowledgeable captains, such as Captain Jordan Pate, who is US Coast Guard certified and has a lifetime of experience fishing the Grand Strand. The trips typically start around 7 am; the average commute to the fishing grounds is about 20 minutes. Most of the inshore trips are about 5-6 hours long, allowing anglers to put forth an excellent effort to locate fish.
What to Bring
When going on an Edisto Beach Fishing Charter, it’s essential to come prepared. Make sure to bring appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather, sunscreen, and sunglasses. You’ll also want to bring a hat, a small cooler to carry fish home, and any snacks and drinks you may want during the trip. Fishing gear is provided, but if you have your equipment feel free to bring it along. It’s also a good idea to bring a camera to capture the memories of your fishing adventure.
