What to Bring

fishing charters charleston scRisky Business Charters provide really everything that you’ll need for a fun and successful day on the ocean. We pride ourselves on offering the best in luxury fishing charters. While we provide most anything that you may require for a great trip, here are some suggestions to bring along with you:

What to Bring:

  • Fishing license. You can also purchase one at dock.
  • Sunblock (30+ SPF): The sun is brighter on the ocean and there is a lot of reflective glare off its surface. Thoroughly cover your face, neck and ears; and any other exposed skin.
  • Hat
  • Sunglasses
  • Hand towel
  • Camera: to capture that trophy fish photo!
  • Sea sickness medication: If you haven’t been out before or have a history of motion or sea sickness, it doesn’t hurt to bring some. Don’t overindulge with alcohol the night before going fishing.

What NOT to Bring:

  • Your own alcohol
  • Illegal drugs
  • Weapons or fireworks

What To Wear:

  • Think layers

On the ocean, it’s usually 10-20 degrees cooler than it is inland. Conditions can also change rapidly. If you wear layers, you can adjust up and down accordingly.

If it’s hot, shorts and a t-shirt are fine, but bring a hoodie or windbreaker to wear on top. It will come in handy, especially when you are going to and coming back from the fishing grounds. If it’s going to be cooler, wear long pants instead of shorts and add a light jacket to wear outside your hoodie.

If you have deck boots (rain boots will work), wear them. If not, where flat, non-slip shoes. Sandals and flip flops not recommended.
