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.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...More
