Fine Catch Fishing Charters

Fine Catch Fishing Charters will have you coming back to South Carolina again and again for more irresistible, head-on fishing! Book your next fishing trip with Captain Chris Ossmann and have him show you around the beautiful inshore and productive backcountry waters of Little River.

Your voyage will take place on the captain’s all-new 228 Sea Pro bay boat, powered by a 200 HP Suzuki engine. This 23’ beauty can take up to 4 guests, including children ages 5 and up, so you can plan your next family vacation and bring the kids along as well! His boat is fully loaded with all the amenities you’ll need, including a fishfinder, GPS, wireless trolling motor, live bait well, and safety gear.

The captain’s preferred fishing technique is light tackle, but he can do heavy tackle on trips longer than 7 hours. Most trips are inshore and nearshore while exploring the flats and backcountry waters of Little River and its surrounding areas. You’ll also have the opportunity to fish over some incredible underwater reefs and wrecks along the coast.

Your main target species are Spanish and King Mackerel, Cobia, Black Drum, Redfish, Spadefish, and many more. The Blacktip Shark has also been known to circle these inshore waters, as well.

You’ll have your choice of top-quality G. Loomis, Penn, and Shimano rods and reels. There’s always bottled water on board to make sure you stay hydrated, but feel free to also bring any of your own food and drinks with you. At the end of every trip, Capt. Chris will offer to clean and fillet your catch, so you can take it home and enjoy your day’s hard work!

No matter what level of angler you are, Fine Catch Fishing Charters will show you a great time. Each trip is unique and Capt. Chris will make sure that your time on board is well spent. Your fishing license is taken care of, so you can focus on what truly matters: having a great time and catching fish. Book your trip today and experience the thrill for yourself!

I’ve been boating and fishing since I’ve been able to stand on my own two legs. As a young child and teenager, I was able to experience many different types of fishing, from fly fishing for Salmon and Trout to offshore fishing for Yellowfin Tuna. I owe everything to my father, who was also a big-time fisherman. So in respect for him, I’ve decided to become a guide and pass along my skills to everyone!
