As a first date idea, decided to see if I could get some fish to bite and show off my fishing prowess to a new found friend. Once again CPT Mike came through. In the cold and wind we got one on the first cast. In a few hours managed 15 Reds and a Flounder. Here's your guy. If you... More

We went on a 4 hour trip with Captain Mike and had an amazing time. Captain Mike called us in advance to let us know that the fishing wasn't great earlier in the day and gave us several options, including the option to back out but we decided to take a chance and I'm glad we did! The weather was... More

Myself, a client, and my client’s 10yr old son took a trip with Captain Mike on his 5hr near shore fishing adventure. We had a blast as the 10yr old was almost worn out after the first hour because of how many fish we caught. The haul of fish included a 6ft shark, a 5ft shark, 40lb Stingray, and several... More

I chartered Avid Angling for a day of fun with my visiting cousin. We started the day with a trip to the jetties where we caught a bunch of black sea bass and some toad fish and a bluefish while enjoying the beautiful view of Charleston from the ocean. We moved back inshore to fish the harbor and quickly caught... More

Fish on was the word of the day...Capt. Mike went out of his way to make our experience a memorable one. We started off for some near-shore fishing but Mother Nature had other plans & she did not cooperate with calming the seas so inshore we came. Mike knows fishing!!! With each cast of his net [for fresh bait,] he... More

Reserved a mid day charter, days ahead of time. Capt Mike said he'd call me to confirm exact time. Up to the evening before the date, he didn't call. After I left messages, he texted me and said the available times had changed (our original time was not available - I assume he subsequently booked it to a more lucrative... More

To user "dreadful snakes" : Thank you for the feedback. I assure you there was no switch a roo here. I was simply picking times to go fish that would be the most productive clostest to mid day since we had not picked a specific start time. The tide plays a big factor in fishing success in our waters so... More

Mike took our family out for a two hour trip today. Our ten year old caught a small shark, a stingray and three whitefish. Our fourteen yearold caught her first fish and a small stingray and my husband wrestled in a 40-50 lb stingray. We had a great time and would go on a trip with Mike the next time... More

Goes out of his way to make sure you have a great time. Been out six times with him now and booked our next trip for October before we got off... More

Mike was very knowledgeable and professional. He knew the best times to go out on the water and even moved around our charter time because of high winds. 5 of us went out on the boat and everyone caught fish. We were all different levels of fishing experience and he was very helpful and patient. We all caught something, including... More
