About Fishing in Folly Beach

Folly Beach Fishing Charters

If you look up the word “folly”, you’ll find it defined as a foolish act or practice, Or maybe something that’s just silly or a downright waste of time and money. Don’t get that confused with a trip to Folly Beach, South Carolina. The only folly here would be if you don’t go and take advantage of this fabulous vacation spot and all the nearby fishing and outdoor activity. Family, friends, or even a work-at-home adventure to the beach won’t be complete without taking a charter trip to go after the fish here. You can choose inshore or offshore for a great trip, then fill in the days with everything from surfing lessons, a short trip to wet a line off the Folly Beach Fishing Pier or go on a dolphin sightseeing adventure. You can also go kayaking, shopping and eating! There’s plenty of fresh seafood and other choices right here. When it comes to fishing, the inshore fishing is great all year round. You can catch redfish, speckled trout, or flounder on a charter or from the beach. You can go offshore for as far as you’d like with a charter — just make sure the captain knows what you want. The further you go, the more chances you have for some really big fish. And the boat ride itself is a trip you won’t forget. You can go all the way out to the Gulf Stream for a once-in-a-lifetime catch. The first step is to spend some time thinking about what you and your friends or family would like to fish for, what time of year you are going, and plan the perfect trip. Talk it over with a charter expert and set sail. Oh, by the way, there are also sailboat tours here that are always a hit. But back to fishing.

Folly Beach Inshore Fishing

Folly Beach is an island, so technically, any fishing would be “offshore”, but it’s just like anything else. You can go on the inside waters away from the Atlantic and be inshore. Inshore charters usually target speckled trout, flounder and redfish. All three of those are excellent game fish that put up a great fight and are tasty on the table. At some times of the year, you can also hook into a fight with a shark that will keep you busy for quite a while. In the fall, inshore fishing for those three species stays good with the fish swimming the edges of the oyster beds and shallow grass lines, searching for a good meal. The natural bait here is abundant, like shrimp, crabs and minnows. Some of the hotspots include the Folly River, the Stono River and Second Sister Creek. They all meander inland and branch out into hundreds of acres of canals, cuts and grass beds that are prime fishing territory.

Folly Beach Offshore Fishing

If you and your fishing party feel adventurous and you don't mind a long day, try a trip out looking for Mahi Mahi out in the Gulf Stream, some 50 miles out. You’ll be so far offshore you barely can see shore. But you’ll have a good chance at big grouper, cobia, king mackerel sea bass, and Vermillion snapper. If you are up to it, there are also wahoo, sailfish, marlin, barracuda snapper, bluefish and more. It takes some angling skill and a lot of patience when you’re deep sea fishing, but hiring a Folly Beach charter captain will help reel in the big ones. You can also book trips to go after huge black and blue marlin. Those fish have, on occasion, gone up to 1,000 pounds. Nearshore trips are also available and are a fun way to spend some time on the water and catch supper. When you’ve caught a boatload and want a little more leisurely pace, there’s a 1,045 foot long solution to that. You can try the Folly Beach Fishing Pier, the second largest pier on the East coast. There’s even a restaurant and convenience store to pick up fishing supplies. Surf fishing is also popular here, especially on both ends of the island or near the Breach Inlet. That’s located between the Isle of Palms and Sullivan’s Isle.
