Charleston Fishing Charters
(Learn more about our boat and equipment!)

charleston fishing charters The stage for your Charleston fly fishing adventure comprises one of North Americas unique and altogether exotic environments. You will discover endless sweeps of shallow water flats, hidden creeks, blue-green bays and wild, forested islands.

The waters wreathing this semi-tropical panorama team with redfish (spottail bass) the year round. April and May bring higher (spring) tides which carry feasts to redfish feeding in the flooding spartina grass flats. These tides provide access into these green realms by boat, or my favorite way, wading to the fish that seemingly beckon with waving tails.  This continues on into the early part of November depending on the weather, always.
The hard-fighting Jack Crevalle abounds through the late summer months in Charleston Harbor, and speckled trout, flounder, bluefish, ladyfish, sheepshead, black drum, spanish mackerel, tarpon and numerous varieties of shark lurk as well.

Into September and continuing with the cooler water as the weather turns colder, the water clears, and the redfish get into enormous schools.  This makes it an ideal time from October to March, to come and sight fish these reds, at the best time.

  About the Boat & Equipment
"Tall Tails" is a 18 Guide\O'Bannon Edition with a 70hp Yamaha outboard; its shallow draft, 4 3/4 inches, will allow us to explore and fish in flats that are otherwise  inaccessible at certain tides. These amazing skiffs are built by Hells Bay Boatworks, in Titusville, Florida; check them out under my links.
We use Ross fly reels, along with Lamiglas fly rods, ranging in weights from 6-12W.  Light tackle is also another one of our specialties.  Spinning and conventional outfits in the 6-12# class with light 7ft rods.  We also have some big boys for the Tarpon, Jacks, and Sharks.  Capt. Ferris is on the Pro Staff for Lamiglas, Ross Reels, Royal Wulff, Teeny Fly Line and Hells Bay Boatworks Program.
