Here at 4 Sons Charters, we offer multiple options for inshore fishing.  Inshore fishing includes fishing in the intercoastal waterways like the creeks and docks or in the harbor for deeper water fishing.  Both options allow you to see land, are only a few miles from the shore, and will enable you to customize your time on the water as we offer 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8-hour options.  When going out with us at 4 Sons Charters, you'll experience some of the best inshore fishing that South Carolina has to offer.  With experienced captains at the helm of each boat, you'll be sure to get great advice and top-notch service from start to finish.  Whether you're an experienced fisherman or a novice getting started in the sport, 4 Sons Charters will provide you with everything you need for a successful trip.  

We have 3 different boat options for inshore fishing. Two of our inshore boats are both 24' Blazer Bays. One has a t-top and one doesn't. The 3rd boat being our 45' SeaHunter. This boat is utilized to chase the fish in the deeper water like bull redfish and sharks.  Per Coast Guard regulates that the maximum number of anglers per boat is six, and both of our inshore boat options are fishing machines. If you have a group bigger than 6, you're welcome to book out both of our bay boats and they can fish side by side.  The 24 ft Blazer Bays allow  you and your fishing crew to fit into the intercoastal waterways and do what is known as creek fishing.  Creek fishing is where you will be targeting fish like redfish, trout, and flounder and casting your bait up under docks or along the shoreline. With access to creeks full of flounder, trout, and redfish or our trips with some sharks and bull reds thrown into the mix, we guarantee you will be happy with what you catch.  We recommend switching to deeper water fishing in the harbor starting in May, as this is when we can target those bull reds and sharks when the weather and water get warmer.  

Our captains are knowledgeable about this area and familiar with all its hidden gems, so they can help you pinpoint where to find your desired catch.  We also provide all necessary equipment, such as rods, reels, and tackle, so that all you have to worry about is having fun and catching fish!  Feel free to bring your favorite snacks, drinks, and sunscreen for an exciting day on the water.  Book your next inshore fishing excursion in Charleston, South Carolina, with 4 Sons Charters today!
