Charter fishing in Charleston during October is typically very good. Deep Sea fishing charters will target nearshore reefs, sunken ships and rock piles to target Sheepshead, Black Drum, Flounder and Bull Redfish. We also see large schools of Bonito this time of year as they explode into surface feeding mode with explosive strikes and drag peeling runs. You will also find sharks, Black Sea Bass and too many other species to mention. Our famous Bull Redfish are now making a showing where the harbor meets the ocean. Big cut and live baits seem to be doing the trick at the moment and many fish over 35 inches have been caught. Inshore fishing charters in Charleston is also good with Speckled Trout, Redfish and Flounder hugging the grasslines and oyster beds in shallow water searching for minnows, crabs and shrimp.
With schools of baitfish and shrimp filling the flats and creeks hungry game fish are not far behind. Over the past few trips it was not unusual to find fish so tightly grouped up we had a fish hooked up every couple of casts. I expect the fishing to be good through the end of the year as fish feed heavily to prepare for our short and mild winter. Come on out and go fishing with us. These happy folks in the pictures below did!
