Light Tackle/Baitfishing Charter

Charleston, South Carolina

1 / 5

Private trip guided by Michael

Fins and Flies Charters 10-19 years of experience


Charleston, South Carolina's estuaries are home to some of salt water's most sought after gamefish. We have a very healthy Redfish (Red Drum) population, vwhich is my personal favorite. Trout, Flounder, Black Drum, and the occasional/seasonal Tarpon are all species in our inland marshes. There are many other species of fish that we catch as bi-catch as well, such as Bonnet Head Sharks, Lady Fish, and Stingrays.

I can offer both sight fishing with light spinning rods or bait fishing.
We can target certain species and customize your charter to your liking. Whether it's baitfishing with your children at first, then sight fishing for the second half, or just baitfishing the whole time to see how many we can catch. Maybe we sight fish the whole time and hunt them down, we can do that.

Equipped with an 18' Hell's Bay Skiff, we'll be able to fish the flats in skinny water for Redfish, or work a bank for trout and redfish.On a really nice day we are able to go nearshore for other species such as Spinner Sharks, Bull Reds, Tarpon, Sheepshead, Cobia, etc.. All bait, tackle, licenses, and water will be provided.

Charleston, South Carolina 10-19 years of experience

Born and raised in SC, Michael grew up fishing around the North Inlet and Debordieu creeks with his family, which instilled his love for the saltwater marshes. After graduating highschool and several years in Colorado for college, he moved to Charleston finish school in 1998. Since then Charleston has become his home, and his exploration for Charleston redfish in the surrounding marshes began.

Michael's boat is a Hell's Bay Guide flats skiff that allows him to get in six inches of water while still allowing him to access bigger water! When not on the water you might find Michael picking banjo for his local bluegrass band Flatt City or at the local flyshop he co-founded, The Lowcountry Fly Shop.
