Eastern Tailz Outfitters 24'

Inshore or nearshore, South Carolina has plenty of fish to provide you with exciting action. Eastern Tailz Outfitters will put you on the bite, whether you’re stalking the shallows or bottom fishing the coastal waters.

Captain Joe Ziegler welcomes you on board his 24’ Seapro boat capable of taking up to 4 anglers fishing in comfort. Her center console design is well suited to fishing both areas, whether you’re chasing a Bull Redfish or reeling in a Kingfish.

Capt. Joe can take you on a quick 3-hour fishing trip around Little River – the perfect excursion if you want to get a bit of fishing slotted in your day. Anglers looking to test their fishing skills and spend the entire day hooking up Mackerel, Groupers, Snappers, and the fighting Cobia can book the 8-hour trip.

The catch list doesn’t stop there, you can also target Spotted Seatrout, big Black Drum, and Flounder!

Kids are more than welcome on board, the captain loves sharing his passion for angling with novices. You need a valid fishing license at the ready before coming on a trip.

Remember to pack sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, adequate clothing, and a cooler to take your hard-fought catch home in.

Experience the diverse fishing of South Carolina the right way, by booking a trip with Eastern Tailz Outfitters!

Growing up in South Carolina allowed Captain Joe's family the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, whether it be duck hunting, fishing, or just enjoying the water. His family established a successful HVAC company but their passion for outdoor sporting was their lifelong career goal. They have spent 28 years educating themselves on the techniques of successful and effective outdoor fishing and hunting techniques. Once Captain Joe and his family found that they had learned and mastered what was needed to be successful in both the chartering and hunting business, they were able to establish Eastern Tailz Outfitters. Whether you're chasing fish tails, ducks tails, or buck tails, the captain can ensure your entertainment and success. He and the rest of the family are so excited to invite you to be a part of the outdoor adventures they have grown so passionately for. They thank you for helping them on their journey and promise it will be an experience to remember.
