Hooking and reeling in a 50+ pound fish is an incomparable thrill, especially when the experience comes after rousing yourself at 3 a.m. for a two-and-a-half-hour boat ride out to the Gulf Stream. Charleston’s marinas offer a host of offshore guides and charters. Trolling attracts anything from tuna to Wahoo to Bonita, all of which will fill your freezer with delicious souvenir dinners of your trip.
Directions from Charleston: Depends on which charter service you go with.
