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. Bring 4 of your fishing buddies with you on an inshore adventure or 3 for some nearshore extravaganza. 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 our family the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, whether it be duck hunting, fishing, or just enjoying the water. Our family established a successful HVAC company but our passion for outdoor sporting was our lifelong career goal. We have spent 28 years educating ourselves on the techniques of successful and effective outdoor fishing and hunting techniques. Once we found that we had learned and mastered what was needed to be successful in both the chartering and hunting business, we were able to establish Eastern Tailz Outfitters. Whether we are chasing fish tails, ducks tails, or buck tails, I can ensure your entertainment and success. We are so excited to invite you to be a part of the outdoor adventures we have grown so passionately for. Thank you for helping us on our journey, we promise it will be an experience to remember.
