Fishing Charters in Santee Delta
This diverse estuary offers anglers many options for fishing in the Santee Delta. Only a short boat ride from Georgetown SC, we target tarpon, speckled trout, red drum and flounder on a regular basis. Fall is the best time of year to surf fish from many of the barrier islands on the lower end of the Santee Delta where huge red drum are very abundant. When the mullet run begins in late August, tarpon will congregate along the beaches and well up the river to feed on migrating fish. Red Drum and Speckled trout can be caught in the Santee Delta river system year around.
The Santee River has the largest river delta on the east coast of the United States. Much of the delta is open to the public which is now part of a Wildlife Management Area where you can hunt, fish, hike and explore the scenic wilderness. Wildlife you may see here include alligators, waterfowl, wood storks, wading birds, ospreys, and bald eagles.
The Santee Delta, anchored by the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge and the Santee Coastal Reserve, boasts a large saltwater estuary, perfect for crabbing, fishing, and visiting the most beautiful beaches in South Carolina. Up the South Santee River and North Santee River, large historic rice plantations can be found.
