I went out on the water in late August with Capt Rob and two of my good friends. We had a great time. The fishing was a little slow, but each of us managed to pull in a couple of fish -- no doubt thanks to Rob's knowledge of the area and his experience from fishing professionally for redfish. Up until the last half hour we didn't think we'd have much to take home and cook that night because all of our fish were over the 23" upper-end of the slot. A friend managed to hook a 20" before we started heading back to the dock.
Can't say enough about Capt. Rob. This guy really, really loves to fish. He was as excited as we were when we hooked up with something, which is saying something considering he probably sees hundreds of fish caught in a month. We were staying in Pawleys Island near his house, so he offered to fillet the fish we had caught if we wanted to follow him back, which we did. He's very personable, knowledgeable, and we had a great time on his boat.
Speaking of his boat, it was organized and clean. No loose hooks or tackle flying around, the rods were stowed and never the way. That may seem like a given, but I've been on boats (non-chartered ones, anyway) that were cluttered and messy. Rob's boat was easy to move around on for all three of us, even with Rob running around doing "guide stuff" behind us while we were fishing. All of his equipment- rods, reels, tackle, etc- was high-quality stuff to the best of my knowledge. And that's a good thing, because these redfish would certainly demolish a cheap rod and reel.
Overall great time. If you're thinking about giving Capt. Rob a call and scheduling a trip, just stop and go do it right now. You won't regret it!
