Merrikohl Outfitters – 23'

(3) In demand!

Merrikohl Outfitters specializes in providing the ultimate outdoors experience in South Carolina’s Lowcountry and coastal waters. Whether it’s Tarpon or Redfishing the flats or targeting larger nearshore species, Captain Jason Woodham will show you how it’s done! He’s fished all over the world and mastered a handful of techniques and loves sharing his passion for fish with others.

Your boat for the day is a 23’ Dorado bay boat, ideal for both inshore and nearshore waters. She’s outfitted with top-of-the-line navigational instruments, safety gear, a wireless trolling motor, and live bait tank. She accommodates 4 guests and kids age 5 and up are welcome aboard. She’s spacious, comfortable, and everyone can fish at the same time.

When fishing the flats you can expect to target Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Jack Crevalle, Flounder, and more! The further from shore you travel, the more diverse the species. On longer trips, you’ll be able to target Cobia, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Black Seabass, and the list goes on!

Capt. Jason offers Tarpon fishing trips as well. These are one of the most exciting and thrilling experiences for any level of angler! The “Silver King” is one of the toughest fighting fish in the water and they require time, patience, and a little extra elbow grease but you’ll have 8 hours to try and land one which is plenty of time.

You can also go fly fishing if you’d like to try one of the oldest fishing traditions around. This technique requires a little extra finesse but no need to worry, Capt. Jason is a guru at it and he’ll show you how to take care of business!

You’ll be provided with an assortment of top-quality tackle, made by Hardy, G. Loomis, and Shimano. You can also use live bait, which will be prepared for you before the trip. Your fishing license is also included, as well as fishing cleaning and filleting services. Just bring some snacks, drinks, and sunscreen and get ready for an incredible adventure with Merrikohl Outfitters!
