My family (2 adults and 4 teens) had an amazing day on the water with Captain Rich (or Rico as I heard him referred to over the radio many times)! We booked a 4 hour morning charter. Both he and his mate were knowledgable and worked hard to get us to good places to drop lines as well as do everything that they could to help us reel in our fish. We ended catching over a dozen blue fish and succeeded in catching a sizeable black tip shark (about 5 feet/ 80 lbs, we estimated). My son was thrilled and so proud! We have chartered boats before but never had such a great experience nor felt so welcome on a boat. The boat itself was in great shape and even had a small bathroom on board which came in handy! They cleaned our catch for us and recommended that we head to the restaurant at the dock (Skull Creek Boathouse) and have them prepare it for us. For $10 a piece, we had our fresh catch prepared for us, alongside some amazing sides. I would most definitely recommend Tallboy Charters to anyone and will definitely be calling Captain Rich when we return to HHI. We would go back even though we are loyal OSU Buckeyes still chafing from the beatdown from Auburn in the NCAA college football playoffs last year and Capt Rich is an Auburn grad! One of the best days of our vacation!

Thanks for the positive feedback! I'm really glad you enjoyed your time with us. Only one thing (and I don't usually correct my clients when they leave suck kind words) .... I went to Clemson. Go Tigers!

Captain Pollitzer is outstanding. We had an excellent experience. We've taken two charters with him & will schedule a third ASAP. Captain Pollitzer is professional, fun, & provides top notch service.

Just got back from Hilton Head fishing with Captain Richard. It had been years since I had been to Hilton Head Ocean fishing and I was unsure about how to pick a Captain but I came across Tallboy website and read all of the great reviews and decided to book a trip. I certainly hit the Jackpot. Richard is a low country native, grew up down there and knows the history of the area like the back of his hand..can tell you lots of interesting stories. He is very patient and makes sure he understands what you are looking for. My friend and I were looking to catch a lot of fish and did we ever. He took us Thirty miles out to a reef and it was one after another until we were exhausted. Redfish, Seabass,Triggers, sharks and a beautiful day. Adam was great to fish with as well and worked hard to make sure we were always in the water..

Best thing is, I now know who to book with in the future and already am planning the next trip. Book these guys, you'll be glad you did.

Fantastic trip!!!! My son and I went for a 6 hr. trip and would most definitely go back and do and 8 hr. trip. Capt. Rich is great with kids. Caught black sea bass, sheephead, redfish, blues, spanish macks and shark. Got to see some dolphin and a couple of sea turtles too. Brought the blues and mackerel back and the Boathouse cooked them up for lunch. Would highly recommend Tallboy Charters and Capt. Rich. Cannot express enough about what a great experience we had. Thanks for a great day Capt. Rich!!!!

Captain Richard and Mate Paul were awesome guides for the 4 of us as we took our sons offshore fishing last week. Within minutes of tossing lines we were hooked onto fish. They suggested a great combination of fishing for "dinner" and fishing for the bigger bites, e.g. sharks, which the kids were more fascinated with. I would definitely recommend these guys for your future outings while in Hilton Head!
