This was our 5th or 6th trip with Cap'n Mike...it may be even more, we've lost count. Once again his dedication to fishing and insistence that everyone have a great time made this worth every penny. The smiles on the kids' faces in the pics below say it all.

Mike made his day available for just me and Charlie. I felt so privileged that he did that. We stayed in calmer waters but still had a great... More

Captain Mike took us out for a four hour trip this morning. Caught 6 different species, including sharks, a ray, and a few others. He knew right where the fish would be and we were catching instead of sitting and waiting. Truly enjoyable time.

Capt. Mike is a fantastic fishing guide. Very knowledgeable and you can tell that he really enjoy what he does. I always felt like he was trying his best to get me on the fish and make my day enjoyable and comfortable. We caught six nice Reds and two tailing fish on the fly! He poled me right into 'em....

I contacted Avid Angling (Capt Mike) several months ago and arranged a 4 hour inshore 'Red Drum' trip. This was to be a highlight of my 3 night visit to the Charleston area. I arrived on a Sunday and we arranged to meet at the resort marina dock on Monday mid-morning. About an hour before our scheduled meeting time I... More

If you're looking for the best fishing charter in the Charleston area (probably in the whole of SC), look no further. Captain Mike is a star: professional, extremely knowledgeable, fun, friendly, and dedicated to making sure you have a great experience. My husband and I booked a charter as part of our honeymoon trip to Charleston. Mike was very responsive... More
