Welcome to Ugly Ducklin' Charters!

 We Catch Fish!!

Ugly Ducklin' Charters is located at Edisto Island and Charleston, South Carolina.  We do inshore  fishing charters.  We fish for Red Drum (Spottails), Flounder, and Trout. We also offer trips for Sharks and Whiting, which are excellent trips for putting fish on the table.  We offer half day inshore fishing trips. 

 We furnish all the bait, tackle and fishing licenses.  All you need to bring is what you want to eat and drink, and sunscreen.  Bring a smile and your polarized sunglasses.  Wear weather appropriate clothing.

 Captain Steve Fralin has fished in these waters for 50 years and has been in business at Edisto for 28 years.
