Brown Dog Sportfishing

Brown Dog Sportfishing offers amazing fishing trips out of Folly Beach. Captain Cleve is a guide who believes there’s always something new to learn on the water, even if you’re an experienced angler. He’s proud that he’s also a teacher to all his guests and loves to share his knowledge. Whether you’re here to learn a new skill, leave the city behind, or get a better understanding of these waters, there’s a trip for you here.

Your captain fishes out of an 18’ Prosports flats boat. She can easily access shallow waters with still being able to handle larger waterways. There’s enough room for 3 guests to fish in comfort. Safety is always a priority, and the boat carries all required safety equipment. Capt. Cleve also holds CPR certifications through the Red Cross.

The main targets for the day will be Flounder, Redfish, and Spotted Seatrout. The pursuit of the catch will take you to sandy beaches of the local barrier islands and the back creeks of the marshes. The best way to get your trophy is using light tackle, spinning, and fly fishing. The captain covers all of the equipment, including fly gear.

Your fishing license is also covered, so you don’t need a lot of preparations for the day out. Just take some snacks, drinks, and don’t forget your sunglasses and sunscreen.

Explore the riches and secrets of SC coast with Brown Dog Sportfishing!

    From Spring to late Fall our area receives larger than normal tides around the full and new moon. These tides allow Redfish to swim into shallow grass flats that are dry the rest of the year and search for prey. Often this involves them nosing in the mud and pushing their tail into the air providing spectacular sight fishing opportunities on both conventional and fly equipment in shallow water.

    This short trip will still give you enough time to target all of the inshore species, such as Flounder, Speckled Trout, and Redfish. This is a great introduction for novices, as you won't stay on the boat for too long. Just bring our snacks and drinks.

Ever since I was able to hold a rod, fishing has been my biggest passion. Since I was growing up in Florida, I always had the opportunity to fish every day. This helped me boost my skills. I fell in love with the SC lowcountry and decided to move there. I've been here for over a decade and loved every second on the water.
