Charleston, South Carolina
The inshore fly fishing is typically targeting trout and redfish using 69wt fly rods depending on the fishing conditions. Tippet sizes range from 1220, and the most effective flies tend to be crab, shrimp, or small fish patterns. Offshore fly fishing in the Seacraft can be very exciting whether you’re using live bait to chum up reef dwellers like mackerel, cobia, and amberjacks or drifting behind the shrimp boats looking for large sharks. Standard gear are 1015wt fly rods with assorted baitfish patterns.
The rates listed cover all of the fishing gear, bait/lures, and licensing that you will need. Everyone is encouraged to bring your own fishing gear if you want, or you are welcome to use mine. For planning how to dress, the best way is check the forecast the day before and decide what you will be comfortable wearing outside that day. I recommend everyone bring a light jacket or rain jacket, and sunglasses are a must especially for sight fishing. Shoes are a good idea to avoid accidentally stepping on something, even flip flops or sandals work well for the summer months. Each boat has a cooler onboard packed with ice and water, but you will need to bring any other drinks and/or snacks you want. (No glass please)
The inshore boat is an East Cape Vantage technical flats skiff. At 19’ in length and drafting right around 10 inches, this is East Cape’s premier inshore skiff. The v-shaped bottom allows for a smooth ride in chop, and the extra large spray rails keep everyone on board dry for an overall comfortable experience while out on the water. This boat fits up to 3 people and is rigged with a poling platform for stalking the flats with fly rods and a trolling motor to work the banks with artificials and bait.
Exact meeting location will be provided after booking.
