World Class Fishing Charters

Inshore Fishing

The estuaries around Charleston are abundant with redfish, trout, sheepshead, sharks, flounder and more! With an experienced inshore fisherman, you can navigate the narrow inlets to the best fishing holes while enjoying the breathtaking views of the Lowcountry. You are sure to get a captain you can believe in through Captain Source.

Offshore Fishing

There is no shortage of fish to be found off the Charleston coast. Getting a professional Captain who knows where to go and has the right equipment to catch what you want is what's important. Captain Source helps select the offshore fishing boat and crew that has the power, pride, and performance to provide the best fishing experience available. Hunt for Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Sailfish, Dolphin, Tuna, Wahoo, and King Mackerel on a custom trip that meets and/or exceeds your expectations.

Full Day Gulf Stream Adventure

Troll the Gulf Stream in search of that marlin you have always dreamed about, and other species such as sailfish, tuna, mahi mahi, wahoo, king mackerel, and amber jack. If you prefer, bottom fishing, our offshore ledges hold snapper, grouper, tilefish, and much more. We can also do a combination of both, trolling and bottom fishing during a full day trip, please just let us know ahead of time for bait preparations.

3/4 Day Offshore Adventure

Fish just inside the Gulf Stream to get the experience of what it is like to go sport fishing. Troll for barracuda, mahi mahi, king mackerel, and the occasional sailfish, or bottom fish for grouper, snapper, and other bottom dwellers. Perfect for the group that needs to make their dinner plans.

1/2 Day Offshore Adventure

Bottom fishing just a few miles off the beach for sea bass, porgies, and mackerel. Great option to get a feel for the water, and perfect alternative for younger children.

Overnight Sword Fishing Adventure

This trip is for the group that simply put, "loves the thrill of catching big fish." Troll the Gulf Stream looking for marlin until sunset. Chunk until sunrise fishing for swordfish, with the opportunity of catching tuna and very large sharks. Troll the sunrise for for the early morning bite.

Reef Fishing

Head 3 to 15 miles out, anchor over a reef and start pulling in Spadefish, Black Sea Bass, Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Sheepshead and Black Drum.
