(Spring Island, SC) - Fishing at Spring Island means you don’t have to choose whether to stake out a pond for the day, meander down a river, or venture out into the sea. You can do it all in this lowcountry location, even in one day. Whether you launch your boat or slide into a kayak to glide around, you’ll experience world-class fishing wherever you are on and around the 3,000-acre island. For homeowners in this private community, a boat launch and private and community docks ensure access to the rich waters. Expert guides are also available, allowing everyone the chance to indulge in the year-round fishing opportunities.

The brackish waters surrounding Spring Island are teeming with cobia, tarpon, red fish and sea trout. Exploration of the island’s 36 ponds reveals feisty freshwater bass and bream as well as an abundance of red fish, flounder and striped bass in the saltwater ponds. Spring Island’s proximity to the Atlantic Ocean – 30 minutes by boat – guarantees fishing offshore, where wahoo, king mackerel, dolphin and tuna tempt fishers.

Despite a late start to the cobia season this year because of the hard winter, Spring Island’s full-time fishing guide, Captain Michael Perry, hasn’t been slowed down. “We’ve caught 24 cobia in the last 4 days,” he said in June. “I caught 12 yesterday site fishing. The largest was 50 pounds! And, tarpon season is just around the corner.”

Sporting Classics magazine has called Spring Island “a sportsman’s nirvana.” The beauty of Spring Island is unmatched due to conservation efforts. Almost half of the island has been protected as a nature preserve, resulting in pristine marshes, forests and fields.
