We just completed our first half day fishing trip with Captain Jordan. It was really hot and we started off at dead high tide, and I had my reservations about what we would accomplish. After no time at all I was not concerned. We had caught a trout and had some good bites, then we started pulling in the flounder... More

This was the saying being whispered around the boat ramp by a couple of other guides before our 4 hour trip started with Jordan but within the first hour I knew we were with the right guy. We quickly got on some Flounder, 4 total, and then started targeting Reds. Despite the high winds Jordan was able to put us... More

This is one of the best fishing charters that I have ever been on! Captain Jordan Pate was excellent and was very professional, courteous and knows how to find the fish! We caught over 10 fish (big redfish and flounder) and had a great time! Thanks again to Captain Pate for an amazing fishing day! I highly recommend Capt. Pate... More

Jordan was prompt, friendly and knew his stuff. I caught 4 big red fish and a trout of a lifetime on artificial lures. Jordan was patient and and hung in there when I was fighting the wind and the tide. We switched to mud minnows and caught 4 nice flounder and a bluefish. I would highly recommend Carolina Guide Service!

My son and I have fished many places together. This was his first time fishing the SC lowcountry. All in all...it was a great day. I have fished with more guides than I can count and Jordan knows his stuff! We are looking forward to fishing with him again!

We booked Jordan for a half day trip last week while vacationing at Debordiue near Pawley's Island. Jordan came highly recommended from some mutual friends and he did not disappoint. During our morning trip we landed two great redfish and then filled up the cooler with flounder. Jordan was fun to fish with, was very knowledgeable about the area, and... More

Quite possibly the best fishing trip of my life. Oct 25, myself and two teen boys made some memories. We started with catching two hogs disguised as red drum. We went on to finish a slam with some speckled trout, flounder and more red drum (3 to 15 pound drum). Jordan has a gift for teaching and turned my non-fishing... More

Over Labor Day Weekend two good buddies and I went tarpon fishing with Jordan. Three hours after putting out lines we had already landed two tarpon well over 100 pounds and it was huge smiles and high fives all the way back to the dock. I've been fishing with Jordan for several years now and you will not find a... More

I, along with my 2 fraternity brothers of 46 years, had a marvelous experience. Captain Pate could not have been a better guide,. and I was extremely fortunate to catch a 40 inch Bull Redfish, an experience I will never forget. I heartily recommend Captain Pate for your next guided fishing trip.
