Edisto Beach Fishing Charters

At the tip of Edisto Island in South Carolina is the quaint town of Edisto Beach. It’s a great place for families to vacation with beachfront property, small town shops and restaurants, and some of the nicest people in the state. Anglers visiting the area also enjoy the many opportunities to bend some rods.

Edisto Beach is a small town, with less than 1,000 people calling it home. But many travellers will visit and enjoy the getaway that comes with the locale. It’s a place to relax, maybe read a book, and just appreciate the moments of quiet. This goes for fishing here too. You can cast your lines, either from the surf or bay boat, and enjoy a day of fishing without a whole lot of noise and civilization.

“Family friendly” is what comes to mind when thinking about fishing in Edisto Beach. That’s because the options available are great for anglers of all ages and skill levels. Whether it’s your first time holding a rod, or you’re practically a pro, there’s something for everyone in Edisto Beach.

Fishing Near Edisto Beach

On the west side of Edisto Beach are several creeks and lowcountry fishing grounds. The farther inland you go, the more freshwater species you’ll find. Here anglers will fish for striped bass, catfish, and crappie. Pronounced CROP-ee, this freshwater species can be found along the shores of the Edisto River. Use light tackle with live or cut bait to get the crappie to the line. Most Edisto Beach fishermen and women will practice catch-and-release to keep the population healthy.

In the saltwater or brackish waters of the area, many anglers will fish from the surf or banks of the nearby waterways. Local anglers typically fish for redfish, trout, or sheepshead. Sheepshead are a black and white striped fish with teeth, which they use to chomp on oysters and crabs. Fish near structures such as piers or docks, where oyster beds are aplenty. This is where you’ll find sheepshead. It’s a great first-time species for young anglers looking to get hooked on the sport!

Edisto Beach State Park is a beautiful oceanfront state park with hiking and biking trails, camp sites, and launches for kayaks. If you’re familiar with kayak fishing, this is the area to be. You won’t have to paddle far to get to good fishing grounds, and there are many in the area. Whether you stay closer to the grassbeds along the shoreline, or travel into the lowcountry, you’re sure to get a bit or ten on the line. Or you can surf fish from the beach. There’s about a mile and a half of beach in the state park where surf fishing is permitted. Here you can cast into the ocean waves and catch pompano, whiting, or even sharks.

If you’re not sure where in Edisto Beach you want to fish, just hire a local fishing guide. They fish the area twelve months of the year and know where to go for a successful outing. Depending on the season, you may fish for redfish in the lowcountry marshes. Or you may travel into the Atlantic Ocean and fish nearshore waters for spanish mackerel or cobia. You won’t need any experience or gear with you. Your Edisto Beach charter captain will take care of everything and can customize the trip your family is looking for.

Edisto Beach Offshore Fishing

Those looking for a bit more adventure, consider an offshore charter. Edisto Beach charter captains can take your crew anywhere from 10 to 70 miles off the coast for deep sea fishing excursions. You won’t need any experience or gear – the captain and first mate take care of it all. Depending on the season, you may be trolling for tuna, or bottom fishing for snapper. If you have a particular technique or species in mind, let your captain know before your trip. They will work to customize the trip of your dreams.

There are several tournaments that take place near Edisto Beach, if you’d like to get in on the action.
