On the backwaters by South Carolina’s coast, you can experience some superb inshore and nearshore fishing. Captain Adam Goodwin, a born and raised local, has been fishing in these waters for over 30 years. He is the owner of Tide Chaser Enterprises LLC, and has 2 other captains that work with him. Captain Lucas (Saltwater Assassin) and Captain Sully (Tide Chaser and Saltwater Assassin). They are your go-to for all things fishing in their neck of the woods.

Tide Chaser’s Sea Pro 248 bay boat is a brand new 2020 model. It’s 24’ long and it’ll fit 6 of you in comfortably. Its 200 HP Suzuki engine can take you to Captain Adam’s favorite grounds in no time at all so you can optimize your time when you’re down here.

Captain Adam and his crew are a true allrounder when it comes to fishing. Using a variety of techniques they ensure that you have the best time possible reeling them in. Although they primarily use common angling techniques they can also set up some kite fishing. You can expect to reel in the likes of Black Drum, Cobia, Flounder, King Mackerel, Redfish, Black Seabass, and Spadefish when you’re out with either Captain Adam or one of his other captains.

A typical trip will take you fishing either inshore or nearshore. You’ll be able to keep your catch but please bear in mind that all over slot or under slot fish will have to be returned to the water.

All the gear will be provided for you including Ugly Stiks rods, King cast 4000 series, and Shimano Sienna 4000 series reels. The license is included in the price as is catch cleaning and live bait which he can get before or during the trip depending on the type of fishing you’re going for.

You are welcome to take food, drinks (No GLASS), and sunscreen (LOTION ONLY) with you. No bananas. When you book with Tide Chaser Enterprises they will ensure that you have a fantastic fishing adventure. Go ahead and do it.

Captain Adam Goodwin and his crew Captain Lucas and Captain Sully are native to this stretch of coastal and inland water in South Carolina. With fishing being a lifelong passion of his he decided to do something he always loved doing. There's nothing he loves more than showing people the waters that he calls home, catching fish, and making some great memories every day.
