Default SC swordfishing

Really enjoy the daytime swordfishing off the FL Keys. I also have friends in MD who have had good success day timing the swords. Does anyone mess with it off the SC coast? Looks like the 1600’ line is about 85 miles off the Charleston coast. Thanks!

i wouldn’t hold your breath. It’s a tight lipped fishery. Two options, book a charter with someone who offers them, or option two just head out there and start targeting them. The Charleston bump area that isn’t closed to bottom fishing is where I’d start.

First rule about swordfish club....... you don’t talk about swordfish club.

I do my swordfishing in the keys so I cant help you with local info. However I can tell you if you can learn how to drop a bait in the gulf stream and exhaust your resources to find spots (one option may be CMOR) then you can go catch a fish and tell tight lipped locals to tighten their lips on your meat.

Find some good bottom and go. You will catch them.
