Awesome trip. I have been fishing in Hawaii, South Florida, and all over the coast and the best trip I ever went on was a few years ago with Brian, until this trip on October 30th. Wow, about the time my arms rested up from one fish, we had another one on the line. I lost track of how many we caught. We were getting them on top water to start and then went out for some big red. The previous trip we caught a few on the fly rod. Hilton Head is great fishing, but Brian makes it an unforgettable experience.

It was very nice to fish with you again and change things up from our last great fishing trip.
The fishing this time was as good as it gets here in Hilton Head for sure! I look forward to fishing with you again next time you are here visiting.

Thanks!

My wife and I were on the morning fishing trip today with Captain Brian and just like the other 5 times I have fished with him, we had an awesome day! I can't believe anyone in the area knows the local waters like Brian. He is excellent with beginning and experienced fishermen. My wife and I each caught two huge redfish... The four biggest we have ever caught! In addition we caught 5 sharks, with the biggest being about 5 ft long. The highlight of the day was my wife having to give a fish being photographed a bear hug as it wanted back in the water... And got it's wish.

Captain Brian represents the best of Hilton Head. He provides a clean, comfortable workspace and ensures that the client is well taken care of.

Captain Brian took us straight to the fish without wasted effort. And the bull redfish would not let up. They worked our tackle, as well as our arms, to the max.

These fish don't stay for very long but provide some of the best action of the year. Captain Brian's experience and sharp instincts allowed us to put these great-looking fish in the boat, savor the experience, and release them unharmed-- what a sight!

A fine day indeed

Sorry to post a bad experience but we booked a 4 hour trip. 45 minutes prior to the start time we received a call from the captain stating he wouldnt be able to do the whole 4 hours because he hurt his back. We agreed that would be ok. Then he called back ~10 minutes later and backed out of the trip. Now I will give him the benefit of the doubt that he hurt his back on a morning trip but it was completely unacceptable that he did not take the time to call around through his many contacts and find us a replacement. We did find a replacement who was excellent. He told us that he has sent off the hook many referrals when he was booked.

First of all this is the first terrible rated review of my business. Accidents happen and most people are understanding of that. The captain that runs trips for me hurt his back earlier that morning and obviously when he called the first time he thought he may have been able to still get you out for a few hours and then realized it would be to much for his back to handle for 3 hours. He was very apologetic when he called to cancel and he DID recommend another guide for you to contact to go out with and I am glad it worked our for you. I am just speechless why you had to post this review and not been more understanding that accidents happen and people get hurt.

My son and I had a great morning with Capt. Vaughn. We started out catching trout, the top water action was exciting! After an hour of trout, we decided to look for red fish. In a short time, Brian had us over a large school. We were able to catch half a dozen nice sized reds. I am a return customer and find Brian to be hard working and knowledgeable. He never fails to find fish.
