My son in law and I spent an afternoon with J.R. in less than perfect conditions with storms on the coast and the tide and wide fighting each other. J.R. worked hard trying to lure some Reds. As he predicted, when the tide changed, so did our luck. A 30 pound Redfish and couple of more "normal" 16 and 19... More

Four hours of excellent fishing. Captain Mike was our guide. We caught many red fish, a sea trout, 2 black drum and tons of pin fish. They are a little more expensive than some of the other guides but it was definitely worth every penny.

Thank you very much. I'm so glad that you had a great time. Capt. Mike is one of several top captains that we book trips for when Capt. J.R. is already booked. Please come fish with us again. Fishing is excellent through out the year. Winter fishing can be excellent with crystal clear water and large schools of redfish in... More

My son and I had the wonderful opportunity to spend a morning fishing with Captain J R Waits. We have travelled extensively and experienced many things together but none equal the great time we had fishing out of the IOP marina. It is no surprise that J R is considered the premier guide in the "low country". We loved his... More

Captain J R Waits is a awesome guide you will always have a great time and catch fish. We took our brother in law and sister in law with us on this trip and they had such a great time I know they will be back. We have fished with JR three times and have never been disappointed. If you... More

Last trip in November 2012 with my son and father was awesome. J.R. is a a true professional and was great about teaching my 7 year old about the fish and their habitats. On a previous trip, we hauled in 2 sharks and J.R. led my son hold and feel them. The November 2012 trip was my best redfish haul... More

JR WAITS knows his redfishing! A short drive of 30 minutes from Charleston to Isle of Palms, where his boat is waiting, provides a wonderful 4 or 6 hour charter. JR knows the local waters. Weaving his amply powered flat boat thru the channels, where you and I would soon be lost, he knows the spots where the redfish hang... More

I hired JR for a 1/2 day charter in June 2012 while on vacation with my family in Charleston. My skills were a little rusty as I hadn't had a chance to fish much before the trip. But JR put me on to fish right away and had good luck the entire outing. Caught nice sized reds and a few... More

Captain JR will flat out put you in the fish! He's one of those rare captains that knows how to adapt to his clientele & does what it takes to insure a fun day on the water...with bent rods! We caught a PILE of Redfish, when my son asked about sharks. JR asked him if he wanted to catch a... More
