For those people who like to fish, living in the Charleston area is a dream come true! Many different fish are available to inshore fishermen and include spotted seatrout, red drum, black drum, flounders, whiting, Spanish and king mackerel, sheepshead and crevalle jack. Summer fishing is slower compared to spring and fall and is better at dusk and dawn when temperatures are a little cooler. During this time of the year, estuaries and coastal waters are filled with a variety of bait fishes and shrimp which are preyed upon by game fish. As a result, live baits will catch more fish than artificial lures at this time. Offshore fishing yields an infinite variety, including everything from sea bass on the reefs to blue marlin in the Gulf Stream.

A Piece of History

Fort Lamar

Why we love it: Located on 14 acres on James Island is one of the most important Civil War Sites in the State, Fort Lamar Heritage Preserve. This is where the Battle of Secessionville took place on June 16, 1862. A short trail takes you to remnants of original 1862 bombproofs, the site of the first shot of the battle of Secessionville, the remains of dry moats and many other historic features of this preserve. Fort Lamar is open for self guided tours from dawn to dusk every day. {www.dnr.sc.gov}
