Fishing on Hilton Head Island

Fish in water

As we begin to turn the corner to spring, the best fishing is at the near and off shore reefs. If it is a calm day, the best opportunity for success is to reserve a 5 or 6-hour charter. This will allow time to fish the tire reef (13 miles) taste species of black sea bass, and sheepshead. If limited to 4 hours, we are targeting Redfish and weakfish. It is a GREAT DAY TO FISH with Outside Hilton Head!


Hilton Head is a fisherman’s paradise, with a buoyant year-round fishery of enjoyable catches. Outside Hilton Head offers inshore, nearshore and offshore Fishing Charters on our comfortable 24 foot power boats. In addition, we offer exclusive small group Kayak Fishing programs on which participants use Hobie Mirage Drive pedal kayaks. All programs use light spinning tackle, fly equipment available upon request.
