    I have always found that the fish love to hang around structure... Whether it’s an eddy or a ripple around some structure, there are bound to be some fish there.

    The best part of working with The Charleston Angler is being able to show my passion and knowledge of fishing with others.

    You don’t have to fish with bait to be a successful fisherman. If you don’t want to wait and let the bait soak, then artificials are for you.

    My best memories revolve around fishing, and I’ve been enjoying it for more than 50 years. That’s why I love sharing information, discovering new techniques, and new gear.

The Charleston Angler

The Charleston Angler

In our book, if you love Charleston and love being on the water, you're already a Charleston Angler. The rest is just details. Don't misunderstand us. We scour the world for the best rods, reels, tackle, lures, and apparel we can get our hands on. We handpick the warmest, most knowledgeable staff and guides we can find. We diligently promote sustainable fishing practices like catch and release. But it's all for a different kind of purpose. See, when it comes down to it, when you're on the water with the sunlight dancing all around you and maybe, just maybe, you feel a tug on your line, all the gear and advice is meaningless, because what you're after is much more than a fish, it's a feeling. And we were born to help you catch it.
