I've got to say that I didn't think we'd be doing another fishing trip on Tybee. Last year was a bit of a let down. We caught some sharks but the guide was a dud. THIS year we got really lucky and found Captain Brad. He was incredible. We caught over 80 fish in 4 hours.(22 keepers) Most importantly he... More

We stopped in for local fishing information and advice and were not disappointed. Great advice as well as the fishing line and bait that made the fishing successful

My father in law, myself, my son and his friend went out on a four hour trip and had a blast. Captain Brad Stewart did a great job helping us with any issues, as the kids and myself are far from avid fisherman. He was also great explaining the area and what to expect. I wish we would have been... More

Good knowledgeable staff. Helps you pick the right set up for what you are fishing for. Doesn't try to push you into buying what you don't need.

We rented a fishing boat and it was great. The owners gave us great suggestions of the good fishing spots and where to see dolphins. The shop was nice too! Would definitely do it again!

I stopped in for bait, tackle, and advice. I was hesitant after reading the bad review from 2008 but after talking to the lady (sorry, I forgot her name) behind the counter, I found that she and her husband had just bought the business within the last year. I had a question she could not answer so she picked up... More

We drove 3 hours to fish, and could find live shrimp anywhere else. Forgot our bait bucket and they let up borrow one.
