Lil Darlin Charters

Come explore the fish-rich waters of Charleston with Lil Darlin Charters and enjoy your day under the South Carolina sun! Captain Lindsay Livingston has over a decade of fishing experience, and knows these waters like the back of her hand. She will provide tips and tricks on how not to lose fish.

You will be fishing from a 25’ Pathfinder center console, 2021. The boat is powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine, and has space for up to 6 guests. Whether you want to fish inshore, or head to the reefs, Capt. Lindsay’s boat has what it takes. Once onboard, anglers will find an icebox and the cool of the shade under the T top.

When you head out, Capt. Lindsay will provide the fishing gear – Penn rods, reels, and tackle. No need to take out the fishing license, Captain Lindsay will do that for you. She will also clean your catch so that you can savor a tasty meal after the trip and reminisce the drag screaming.

Lil Darlin Charters runs a variety of fishing trips around the fishful waters of Charleston. These fisheries are home to inshore finest species – Spotted Seatrout, Redfish, Black Sea Bass, and Tarpon, but that’s not all! Go to the reefs to battle the mighty Cobia. Both serious anglers and novice fishermen will find something to like, and youngsters will love seeing the fish bite and the line tighten.

Remember to bring sunglasses, a cap, and a non-spraying sunblock. Also, pack your snacks and favorite drinks. You’ll want to wear comfortable clothes while onboard, non-marking sole shoes, and an extra layer of clothing might be a good idea.

Once you’re ready to go, hop aboard, and let the excitement kick in. Join Lil Darlin Charters and have an unforgettable adventure in South Carolina waters!
