Shrimping in Beaufort, SC

Beaufort, South Carolina Shrimping Trips

Deep Hole Shrimping in Beaufort, South CarolinaWell as Bubba said “you can boil em, you can fry em, you can put em in salad…”, I mean really, there truely so many ways to cook shrimp! I like to call them the fruit of the ocean; not only do we like to eat shrimp but I doubt that there is a fish that swims that would pass down a tasty shrimp meal. Here in Beaufort, SC we have a great shrimp run. Over most of the year we can buy commercially caught shrimp, but during the fall months we can catch them recreationally around the inshore waters.

How to Catch Fresh Shrimp

Shrimp and Fish in Beaufort, SCYou can bet that as summer starts to wind down you will find me out in my skiff cast netting for shrimp. There are a number of ways to catch them. Many people cast net for shrimp over bait balls (clay patties with fish meal mixed in) and others work the small creek mouths and mud flats for their shrimp. For me however, I like to break out the big net and hit the deep holes. Many of these holes will be in 20-50 feet of water and down at the bottom lies a bit of saltwater gold! I especially like deep hole shrimping because we tend to find some of the larger shrimp in the deep holes. We call the really big shrimp hot dogs because they are about the size of a hot dog and when you hold em up you can’t help but say “Hot Doggie!”.¬†Shripming is fun for the whole family. In fact my little girl loves going out on the boat with me for an afternoon of shrimping.

As far as shrimping charters, I do not offer a specific shrimping trip. What I usually do is when the shrimp are running we will hit one of the local holes at the end of a fishing trip to add few pounds of shrimp in with your fish. For more information about shrimping or to set up a guided fishing charter shoot me an e-mail or give me a call. Captain Charlie
