Fin Stalker Charters - 17'

Book your next trip with Fin Stalker Charters for inshore fishing in Charleston, South Carolina. Captain Chris Chavis is a Charleston native who specializes in fishing the waters around Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island, Edisto Island, and the Isle of Palms. With over 20 years of experience, he has come to know these waters like the back of his own hand. He is dedicated to making your trip productive, memorable, and safe. Join him and reel in a catch to remember!

Step aboard a 17’ Action Craft powered by a 90 HP Suzuki engine. This craft was made for stalking shallow waters, allowing you to reach places where most boats cannot go. She comes equipped with GPS and fishfinder. There is room on board for up to three passengers and children are welcome.

The magnificent environment of Charleston makes inshore fishing spectacular 12 months a year. Here you can expect the finest inshore action, with opportunities to tangle with Red Drum, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Ladyfish, and Bluefish. Capt. Chris provides fly fishing equipment and spinning gear, featuring top of the line rods and reels by Penn.

You can join Capt. Chris for several hours to test the waters or come aboard for a full day. More time on board gives you a chance to catch more fish, trying various hot spots to find out where the bite is best. You may keep your catch and Capt. Chris will clean and fillet any fish you would like to eat.

Fin Stalker Charters provides a fishing license and all the gear you need.  Please note that parents must supply life vests for their children.

Charleston fishing is like no other—come aboard and experience it for yourself!
