Charleston, SC Nearshore Reef Fishing Report

Capt. Zachary Litchfield
March 4, 2020
Charleston - Saltwater Fishing Report

Started out the morning with a group of 3 for a nearshore fishing charter to target specifically Sheepshead. The weather forecast was 2 feet at 12 seconds with "smooth seas" all day so we knew we were going to be comfortable anywhere we wanted to go. I made a short 12 mile run to one of our nearshore reefs that only sat 6 miles off our South Carolina beaches.

As soon as i started looking at the sonar ( bottom reading machine) I knew we were in the right place. Sheepshead typically eat crustaceans which locally are shrimp, oysters, clams and fiddler crabs. We started dropping fiddler crabs 43 feet down next to a sunken tug boat that was placed bySouth Carolina Department Of Natural Resources for artificial reef purposes. We hooked up on a stud 8 pound sheepshead to start the day off right!
We averaged a bite about every two minutes with a few missed strikes in between. We ended the day with right at about 21 keepers (30 is the limit) with the smallest fish being 4 pounds and the largest being 12 pounds.

March is typically a great month to get out to the nearshore reef for Sheepshead in big numbers when the spring wind allows it. Inshore fishing is just as productive for smaller keeper size Sheepshead but also for Red Drum, Black Drum and Trout during the spring months.

We highly suggest booking at least a six hour fishing charter this time of the year to ensure you do not miss out on the action!

We look forward to seeing you out there! Tight Lines!!
