If you would like to go fishing with Capt Bo, please call, email, or text so we can discuss options, pricing, and availibility.
We are currently operating out of the Maritime Center adjacent to the SC Aquarium, but can meet you anywhere in the Charleston area (Folly Beach, Mt. Pleasant, etc).
Had a great day surf fishing with a group from Augusta, GA. The bite was strong!
Had a great eco-tour today in the North Edisto River. We circumnavigated Deveaux Bank, which is a major rookery for many types of shore birds. A hike on remote Botany Bay Beach and a high tide cruise in some of the backwaters made for a great morning.
We fished the flats this morning, wading for tailing red drum. We saw seven or eight fish, pulled the hook on one, and boated a second. Here is a very short video of one of the fish.
Master Benny caught a nice flounder at one of the nearshore reefs. The red drum bite was "off" today, but lots of bluefish and ladyfish were caught and released.
It was bit bumpy this morning at the jetties, but we did manage one nice red drum. We followed up the fishing with a nice beach walk on remote Morris Island, cruised Shem Creek and Crab Bank for dolphins and pelicans, and made it back in before the rain started.
Fished at the Jetties again today, and caught two nice red drum, one around 34" and the other around 30". We also had a large stingray, a 4' bonnethead shark that broke the rod, and a large mystery fish that broke off.
Fished the Lowcountry Anglers reef out of Stono Inlet today. Spanish mackeral, sheepshead, and spadefish made up the catch.
August 6. We had a good bull red drum bite at the jetties today, along with a couple of real nice speckled trout.
August 2nd flounder at the Charleston Jetties.
July 31 bull red drum
Another great morning of bull red drum fishing. The bite was really on for about an hour, during which we boated released~10 red drum.
More bull reds, whiting, and sharks.
July 30 bull red drum
Fished the jetties today for a few hours and caught & released two large red drum and a spanish mackeral.
The surf fishing has been a bit on the slow side. Lots of blacks sea bass and sharpnose sharks at the artificial reefs. Also had a 9' hammerhead visit the boat a couple of days ago.
We are catching lots of bluefish, sharpnose sharks, and black sea bass.
The "monsoon" and strong winds have finally passed. The winds and rain have made fishing very difficult. Some smaller red drum, small sharks, and the occasional small flounder/trout made up this past week's catches.
The fishing during the past few days has been slow due to the wind and rain.
More sharpnose sharks in the harbor. A 28" red drum I tagged/released at Pritchards Island in 2006 was recently recaptured in Charleston Harbor. It measured 34".
The sharpnose shark bite is really going off in the Harbor. Lots of menhaden (baitfish) in the harbor, too.
This family had a wonderful time on a shelling trip to one of the remote barrier island.
