Mt Pleasant Fishing Charters

Mount Pleasant, South Carolina is a suburb of Charleston, located just across the harbor on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. Oftentimes, visitors will stay in Mount Pleasant and explore the neighboring cities and attractions. It’s the perfect place to act as your homebase as you tour the cities’ historical sites and adventure out for the day’s excursions.

An icon of Mt. Pleasant is the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, commonly referred to as the Ravenel Bridge or Cooper River Ridge. The bridge crosses over Cooper River and is 1,546 feet long, connecting Charleston to Mount Pleasant. There is an annual 10k race event held every April that attracts more than 50,000 people called the Cooper River Bridge Run. The rest of the year, recreational runners also take advantage of the bridge path; there is a parking lot for your convenience on the Mt. Pleasant side of the bridge.

If you’re more into running fishing lines than running races, we have what you’re looking for!  The Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge is also visited by anglers looking to fish from the shore. The Mount Pleasant Pier is in the shadow of the bridge, reaching 1,250 feet into the Cooper River. There is also a covered pavilion at the end of the pier with more than 8,000 square feet available for social gatherings. Overall, the pier is a nice place to visit, fish, and experience the spectacular views of the area.

Fishing in and around Mt. Pleasant is abundant and available twelve months of the year. No matter what your experience is, a Mount Pleasant fishing guide can get you on the fish.

Mt Pleasant Freshwater Fishing

If you’re looking for a freshwater species, such as largemouth bass, catfish and trout, the local rivers of Mount Pleasant will answer the call. You can fish the upper sections of Cooper River and Wando River, both great fisheries with healthy populations. As you get closer to Charleston Harbor, the salinity levels increase and you’ll see more brackish species than freshwater species.

Anglers fishing these rivers will use both fly fishing rods and conventional rods. If you’re unfamiliar with either technique, your Mt. Pleasant fishing guide can teach you what you need to know. If you opt for a fly fishing excursion, make sure to take a couple practice casts on dry land before getting out to the fishing grounds.

Mt Pleasant Inshore Fishing

Charleston Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean both offer fantastic options for inshore and nearshore fishing excursions. Trips can vary from four hours (known as half day trips) to eight hours (full day trips). The four hour trips are perfect for first time anglers or families with younger kids. You’re not on the water as long, and you’ll see a lot of action compared with offshore charters.

Without a doubt, the top species in the area is the redfish. This bronze or tan colored fish is a local favorite, available throughout the year. Some Mount Pleasant fishing charters will focus solely on this magnificent fish, trying to secure a personal best each and every time. With sightings of 40+” giants in the deeper areas of the harbor, it’s not hard to see why.

Other inshore species include the spotted seatrout, flounder, black drum, and sheepshead to name a few. Your Mount Pleasant fishing guide can customize your trip for the species of your choice, as long as it’s in season.

Mt Pleasant Offshore Fishing

Heading offshore from Mount Pleasant takes you to the deep blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Here you’ll find big game fish and the adventure of a lifetime. Offshore charters should be at least six hours long, as this gives your group plenty of time to get to the fishing grounds and get a boat full of keepers. There are also charters available for ten, twelve, or even fourteen hours. You’ll want to make sure you’re comfortable with this amount of time on the water before reserving this bucket-list excursion.

While fishing offshore you can see a variety of species. Reef species include grouper or snapper, while pelagic species will have you chasing mahi mahi, tuna, or marlin. Talk with your Mount Pleasant captain about what is available during your visit. Possible techniques include bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, or casting. The captain and first mate will be happy to help you learn or improve your technique, and also take care of cleaning and preparing your catch. At the end of the trip, you’ll go home with a cooler full of fish and an amazing dinner planned.
