    With the water temperature in the low 60's, offshore fishing “is fixin' to start in Charleston,” according to Captain Carlo Marino of Marino's Fishin Charters.

    Right now Captain Carlo says that he is catching 50 pound plus wahoo, and some have gone as big as 90 pounds, but that is the exception. The tuna fishing is “hit or miss.” The fishing now in Charleston is in transition, but as soon as the water warms, the fishing will start.

    The water temperature that Captain Carlo is looking for is the magic number of 68 degrees. Then he will start trolling offshore. The bonito “bonanza” will start later this month and followed by black and yellow fin tuna fishing. Then the mahi, marlin and sailfish fishing will start up.

    For deep sea bottom fishing it will not be long until Captain Carlo goes after grouper, red and vermilion snapper. Then it will be time for black sea bass, flounder, and trigger fish to start hitting.

    If you are planning an offshore fishing trip to Charleston soon, give Captain Carlo a call at (843) 414-4896 or visit his web site at “Are you ready!!!” Offshore fishing is “fixin' to start” in Charleston.

    It has been an early spring and I am ready!

    Those wahoo they have been seeing sound huge, but I hope the dolphin are even bigger this spring.
