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

Mike is an outstanding guide. Within 5 minutes of getting in the boat we were reeling them in. This trip was about taking my 4 year old out for some fun and mike was great with him. This was his second charter fishing trip and it was by far the better one. I recommend avid angling 100% we will be... 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

I had a great experience fishing with Captain Mike. From the very start of the trip it was an incredible experience. Mike had a very interesting knowledge of the surrounding area and all of the marine life. I caught several redfish over 30 inches and one bonnethead shark. I caught so many big fish in a short period of time... More

Having never chartered a fishing trip I was a bit nervous about it all...Will I find a guide that would give me the best opportunity to catch fish....would that guide be personable and professional... would the cost of the trip be worth it even if fish aren't caught. I would be taking my wife along who has little experience fishing... More

Had a blast with Captain Mike! His knowledge of the water and local species was truly impressive! He ensured that fish were caught and took the time to help me work on my fly casting technique. It was one of the best guided trip experiences I have ever had! I highly recommend booking a trip! I cannot wait to come... More

We called Mike based on previous TripAdvisor reviews. Long story short, we booked the trip, met Mike and headed out. The experience was just what we expected. My husband had fun fishing, got some sharks and a big Red fish. Great time, with bragging rights and photos to match. We recommend Mike.

We had a great time with Mike. We came to Charleston in 2012 and got a last minute charter with another captain that was a complete dud. This year I checked Trip Advisor and found reviews for Avid Angling. Mike took us past the Battery and Rainbow Row, and out past Fort Sumter (which we visited last year, but was... More
