Mike took me and my sons out for a fishing charter and we ended up with an awesome day of fishing, sight seeing and a great fresh fish dinner. We will definitely book another charter with him during our next visit to Charleston.

This was a fantastic experience. We caught plenty of fish which captain Mike filleted and sent us home with. We got to experience the amazing ocean and sea life charleston has to offer. Captain Mike was very knowledgeable and accommodating. Will definitely go out with him again.

Mike took me and my twins out this weekend. We have never seen so many beautiful redfish and trout before. Out of 8 different guided trips down the sc coast. The one with A Anglers topped them all! Mike knows his stuff.

I live in Charleston and booked a sunset cruise for me and my girlfriends who were in town visiting. The boat was comfortable and the captain was relaxed and professional. We did not have to ask him to take us anywhere specific, he knew all the great spots to view Charleston from the water. The pick up and drop off... More

We went fishing with captain Mike and he is a great guide. He knew exactly where to fish in the conditions we had it was only about 10 min before we were catching massive Redfish. He is professional and courteous and I would highly recommend booming with him if you want a great inshore fishing trip.
