Book your next trip with Gnarly Goat Charters and enjoy everything that the Lowcountry has to offer! You can join Captain Mike Stapleton for inshore and nearshore fishing or come aboard for an eco tour featuring scenic views of the Charleston waterfront. No matter how you plan to spend your time on the water, you are sure to have an unforgettable experience.

Step aboard a 22’ Sportsman powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine. Locally built here in Charleston, this vessel is one of the finest bay boats in the industry. She boasts a maximum cruising speed of 55 knots and comes equipped with advanced fishing technology, including GPS, fishfinder, and a wireless trolling motor. Capt. Mike does his best to make sure the live bait well is full when you arrive.

While fishing inshore and nearshore you might reel in a wide variety of species, from Redfish and Black Drum to Flounder, Black Seabass, and Bonnethead Shark. Capt. Mike prefers to target most species using light tackle. He provides braided line and top of the line gear, featuring the craftsmanship of Cinnetic, Penn, and Shimano. He will help you target your catch using the most effective technique, from jigging and popping to bottom fishing.

Passengers are also welcome aboard for an eco tour of the Charleston area. Come take in scenic views of this historic town that can only be seen from the water, discover local wildlife up close, and enjoy a relaxing ride through inshore waters. The boat can accommodate up to six passengers and children of all ages are welcome.

Gnarly Goat Charters provides a fishing license and all the gear you need. You are welcome to keep your catch and Capt. Mike will clean and fillet it for you.

About the Captain

Mike Stapleton
Charleston, South Carolina, United States
Member since July 2015
An avid fisherman, sailor, kiteboarder, and stand up paddler, I'm a waterman at heart. A graduate of the US Naval Academy, I spent 6 years serving in the US Navy driving ships, travelling our oceans, and gaining experiences with life on the water. Fishing has always been a passion since I was a little kid, and I love to share that passion with as many people that will let me! My number one goal is to ensure you have a safe and fun trip, stress free, all while teaching techniques and strategies to land your next Charleston lunker!
