Default Looking for Beaufort SC Guide

Planning a trip, and I'd like someone to ride on my boat. I'm used to Panhandle FL fishing, and the tides and creeks on the east coast are a little different.

Headed down in late January/ early February for some inshore redfishing.

Post here or feel free to PM me.

Saw this, this morning and spoke to a good friend about you. He's a charter captain operating out of Beaufort with over 20 yrs. experience guiding here. We met in captain's school years ago.

​​​​​​His name is Danny Rourke and operates Tailwinds Charters. He specializes in inshore and is willing to ride in your boat. His base of operations is Beaufort Boat and Dock supply in Port Royal a small fishing town in Beaufort county.

If you would like I can give you his contact info or you can search him or the tackle shop.

I have fished with Danny several times----great guide. Capt. Rick Percy is another good guide in Beaufort, but he is taking a LOA due to medical problems. Capt. Rick recommended that his customers call Danny while he is off the water.

Thanks for all the feedback! I'm eager to get some redfish on the line!

I am thinking of doing a trip around there too, but am flexible as tk time of year. What months are best for inshore fishing? How about offshore? Was thinking of doing both in one trip, doing multiple charters between Savannah & Charleston, any particular place and/or time of year I should target to be able to experience all the fishing in one trip? Thanks!

Of course it depends on what species you want to target. Inshore reds and trout are as good as it gets right now. You can throw in the black drum right now also. Near shore right now sheepshead and big red drum are good. If you want triple tail and cobia sight fishing too you have to wait for summer.

Offshore March through June are the best. Unless you brave the cold and go now for wahoo and blackfin. The bottom fishing is pretty good right now too but grouper is closed.

offshore off of sc for wahoo etc is a long run out . The stream is about 60 miles off Chas, Really hard to fish offshore and inshore in one day. The offshore boats are not really made to fish 2 ft of water inshore either. I fish a bay boat but do not venture out past 10 miles. I am not catching dolphin, tuna and billfish that close in.

Don't think Smoke N Mirrors meant both in one day. He said in one trip. I'm thinking trip means one vacation.

Correct, looking to spend at least a week in the area, doing multiple trips, with different types of fishing, likely March fror kid’s spring break or June-August while off for summer. We fish from the Everglades to the Bahamas, so like to experience whatever is best, whether in, near, or off shore during those times.

Finally headed down next weekend. Looks like water temps remain pretty low-
Looking at the available boat ramps, is there one thats preferred over others?

Sands Beach in port royal is the closest to the ocean. You can go up the river to Beaufort and dock at the city docks (free) and go to lunch. It is across the river from Parris Island. Plenty of parking and we would launch our 28' Triton there with ease. I don't fish inshore in Beaufort so I am not much help there.

Thanks. We'll probably be inshore mostly, I'm not sure what would be worth chasing nearshore at this point.

Black sea bass?
