Inshore Fishing

May River Excursions offers private inshore fishing trips along the backwaters of Hilton Head Island, Daufuskie Island, and Bluffton, South Carolina. Inshore fishing trips can be either 2, 3, or 4 hours long. These trips are up to 6 passengers on the Marsh Donkey or up to 4 passengers on the Tidewater. Three hour trips are the recommended length. Live shrimp is the preferred bait depending on the season and availability. Other types of bait commonly used are mud minnows, mullet, and dead shrimp. Types of fish targeted are redfish, speckled trout, black drum, flounder, sheepshead and several different species of sharks. The time of year will dictate species and size. May River Excursions captains determine the best options to produce the best experience for their charter clients. When dealing with mother nature there is always the element of unpredictability and the chance the fish just won’t bite.
