Looking for a night gigging trip in South Carolina?! Then you’ve come to right place! Captain Michael Stevenson of Bill Buster Charters specializes in one thing, and one thing only: Night Gigging for Black Drum and Flounder in Saint Helena Island, South Carolina.

Captain Michael has been providing customized, full-service gigging charters for over 30 years. He has perfected the technique of gigging and is happy to take customers of all experience levels for a trip. Gigging is the technique used by anglers who want to fish without using a rod and reel. Basically it’s a long pole with a spear at the end. Black Drum and Flounder gigging are very popular, and quite a lot of fun once you get used to the technique. Bill Buster Charters also guides bowfishing trips; all gear is provided and instruction given for both techniques.

Three anglers fish comfortably aboard Captain Michael’s 17ft flats boat. You’ll stand on the poling platform looking for schools of fish to target. We stay near the marshes and grass beds to locate our targets with the help of top GPS and Fishfinder electronics. We ask that anglers be at least 6 years old for these trips. Bill Buster keeps up with all safety gear, including an EPIRB, making your safety a top priority.

Bill Buster fishes near Saint Helena Island, Fripp Island, Pritchards Island, and Hilton Head Island. South Carolina is a unique topography with many canals and waterways with a great fishery. Flounder gigging is a favorite among those who have experienced this unique technique. Captain Michael encourages you to try your hand and book a trip!

Your Night Gigging Trip will begin after the sun goes down, around 7pm. Gigging is best done at night when the fish are active, and we’re fishing for about 4 hours before heading back to the dock. Lights on the boat allow us to see the fish in their habitat, easy to spot before capturing. We’ll gig or bow fish for Flounder, Bass, Tripletail, Black Drum, and more.

When you book with Bill Buster Charters, your fishing license is provided, as well as all gigging and bowfishing equipment. Captain Michael will also clean your catch at the end of the trip. Feel free to bring a small cooler with drinks or snacks; and you may want to bring a light jacket as the temperature gets cooler once the sun goes down.

We know you’re more than ready for an amazing adventure of Night Gigging! Book today with Bill Buster Charters and Captain Michael Stevenson and he’ll guide the way to your adventure.
