If you're looking to catch fish on the fly, Carolina Guide Service Is a great choice! Jordan really knows the area and the fish you are targeting. My goal was to catch Redfish on the fly and he knew right where to find some. I had a blast.

I grew up in this area and still have a home here. I usually fish on my own but had a friend coming in just to fly fish for Reds together and we booked Jordan. My buddy could not make it due to weather up north, so Jordan and I spent a day hunting Reds in North Inlet which is... More

Have caught several trout and redfish with Capt. Pate. Been a part of a few tarpon releases on his boat too. Jordan has great knowledge of the local waters and a great personality to go with it.

Capt. Jordan Pate is hands down the best guide I have ever fished with. Not only does he put you on the fish, he also teaches you how to become a better fisherman. My Dad and I had the pleasure to fish with Jordan for a full day, this past September. He had us on the fish all day. We... More

I spent three days in November 2015 fly fishing for redfish with Captain Pate. I had a fabulous time. Captain Pate put us on fish, even in the face of terrible conditions due to the historic flooding that had preceded my trip by about three weeks. He found fish each day and I managed to land a few. Captain Pate... More

Captain Pate is one of the best guides that I have met. If you want a personable guide that knows the local waters - he is your guy. You can tell he has put in countless hours learning the water and fishery. He went above and beyond to accommodate our desires for a two day trip.

Our crew had a great time with Captain Jordan! He took us to several spots and we landed more than we could handle. If you like personable guides (and lots of huge fish), this is a great experience.

I have fished tarpon in the Florida Keys going back some 50 years, had heard that they migrated this far north in late summer, but had never fished for them in South Carolina until last month. Jordan Pate is a great captain, knowledgeable with an excellent boat and equipment. We caught two, one well over !00#, one 80#, and jumped... More

Just completed a full day fishing trip on 9/2/2015 with Captain Jordan. Had a great time hooking into and landing a tarpon within the first hour. Then moved to another spot and caught several red fish and speckled trout. I would recommend Carolina Guide Service for a trip when in the area.
