My wife and I have taken around 10 trips with Brian at Off the Hook Charters, and each time has been a great day on the water. I book guided fishing trips quite frequently and in many different locations, and Brian is definitely among the best I've fished with.
His dedication, professionalism, knowledge and passion are clearly visible on each trip, whether it's getting bait or choosing the target species for the day. The boat is immaculately maintained and the equipment is of very high quality. While the casual fisherman may not recognize the benefits, the more serious fisherman will appreciate this. Not only that, but Brian's a pleasure to spend time in the boat with.
Off the Hook Charters can also taylor the trip to whatever you'd like to catch. In the trips I've taken, we've targetted and caught redfish, trout, black drum, ladyfish, sheepshead, spanish mackeral, king mackeral, bull reds, tarpon, cobia and half a dozen species of sharks. This versatility allows Brian to be able to react to the conditions of the day and make the needed adjustments to put clients on the fish. Mother Nature doesn't always cooperated, so it's reassuring knowing that Brian has a backup plan of action.
Communication leading up to the trip is also very good. I've had multiple experiences with other guides where it seems to take an act of Congress to get them to take your phone call or reply to your e-mail, but this is not the case with Off the Hook. Working out the details is always a quick and easy process
For anyone looking to take a guided fishing trip on Hilton Head Island at any time of year, I enthusiastically recommend Off the Hook Charters. I've never been disappointed yet!
