Cleopatra Charters

Hilton Head Island is one of South Carolina’s undiscovered gems. Located at the crossroads of numerous waterways pouring into the Atlantic, it’s an angler’s paradise. Come and discover the rugged coastline and its productive fishery with Cleopatra Charters. Whether you’re looking for that fix of fishing, or want to test the waters for the first time, they’ve got you covered.
There’s no one better to take you out on the water here, than Captain Jimmy Reese. One of the area’s most long-standing, respected guides, he’s been fishing these waters since the mid-1970s, perfecting his skills over decades of fishing. He hopes to pass on his enthusiasm to each and every customer, as he helps you fill the boat with plenty of delicious fish.

Up to 3 guests are welcome aboard the 18’ Hewes Bonedisher lats boat. Built specifically for fishing these shallow waters, she’ll cut across the water tops at speed, getting you to the productive fishing grounds in no time. Capt. Jimmy will provide all the spinning and fly gear you need for a productive day out, as well as live bait. Come aboard and discover some of the east coast’s best fishing grounds

Cobia, Jack Crevalle, Snook, Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder, are just some of the prized fish you’ll be going up against. Each of these beauties promises to put up a fight to come aboard, so get ready to put your strength to the test.

Capt. Jimmy promises an exciting day out on the water, with plenty of great rewards. He’ll even clean and fillet your catch at the end of the trip, so there’s nothing left for you to do! Bring some drinks and snacks aboard to make sure you stay refreshed and away you go.

Come and experience inshore fishing from a different perspective with Cleopatra Charters, and make the most of these rich waters!
