Default Offshore charter boat in Charleston late April

I have a bachelor party coming in in late April and want to try and get a small group to fish. I and some of the guys fish regularly out of NC so the group ranges from novice to pretty seasoned. I am curious whats running there that time of year and any more info you have, maybe suggest some captains, I like referrals because some captains can be ornery... Most arent though.

I would image wahoo, maybe Mahi (I catch plenty of Mahi locally so thats not a target but maybe a last resort), maybe sails, Marlin, sails? Etc...

I prefer a full day to the stream but I know the stream is a run from Charleston... Any help/advise would be appreciated. Thanks!

I had a trip planned with David Yates of www.charlestonfunfishing.com. We went with a bunch of first timers and it was pretty nasty in the harbor and supposed to get worse so we ran up the rivers to do some inshore and finally got rained out. He worked out a discounted price and was entertaining for the short time we were out there. He also apparently can arrange some entertainment to come along as well if you are interested.

I have been out on the Teaser II out of Shem Creek. I can't remember his name, but he can do more than 6 people and was a very nice guy.

A full day is the only way you can fish offshore from Charleston at the stream. David Yates runs a 33' Contender. If you want a more comfortable; boat the full day rate will be b/t $1700-2000

Wahoo and dolphin will be the primary catch unless you specifically tell the captain you want to do some bottom fishing as well. This is always a good strategy if the palegics aren't biting early in the season. Billfish are present but are scarce until the water warms a bit. Late April can be hit or miss and the weather is always iffy until May.

Mark Brown runs the Teaser and is the best bottom fishing Charter captain in Charleston

A 33' Contender is better than we usually fish anyways so I would not need "more comfort" maybe more capacity...

This what I figure, my optimistic side was hoping that the water is significantly warmer 1 state down...

Call Caramba Sportfishing. They are out of Mt Pleasant and are great fishing guides. They fish a 59 Briggs.

Also try Full Pull. I believe they are out of Shim Creek

I have been on both and they are the best

If you have more than 6 people, Mark Brown is about your only option.

+100000000 for mark brown on the teaser II. best fishing trip i was ever on, and i worked on a head boat for 8 years. capt mark is on his game. we took out 12 from work, all ranges of fishing experience, all pounded fish all day. he trolled for an hour or so, then hit bottom fishing for 6 hours, then we jigged up 50# amber jacks. total fish caught was well over 300 hundred.

then we had our catch cleaned and cooked 3 ways at waters edge resturant, 3 sides + dessert for 12 per person. capt mark set it all up.
