Hook 1 Charters – Folly Beach

Join Hook 1 Charters for a memorable day on the water in Folly Beach, South Carolina! Captain Chandler Williams is a full-time angler who eats, breathes, and sleeps chasing fish. He has traveled all over the world guiding in 3 different countries on 3 continents and he knows how to create a fun and enjoyable trip for his guests. Join one of his employed and insured captains and have a first-rate fishing experience on the waters around Folly Beach!

You’ll fish from an 18’ Xplor Boatworks flats boat. It can sit up to 3 guests, runs on a 115 HP Mercury Pro XS four stroke engine, and uses modern GPS electronics to make a safe and quick reach to the fish and back. You’ll also have an ice-box to store your fish and a livewell to provide you with live bait.

The species you can target include Jack Crevalle, Tarpon, Narrow-barred Spanish Mackerel, Permit, Bonefish, Sheepshead, Redfish, and more. You can fish various grounds, from inshore and nearshore waters to reefs, wrecks, flats to the secluded backcountry. The technique you and your captain will be using to catch fish is fly fishing on light tackle. You can keep some of the species you catch and you’re free to bring kids on your trip.

The captain will provide you with all the equipment, including the fly fishing gear, live bait, and lures. He’ll also clean and fillet your catch and provide fishing licenses and drinks, all free of charge. The only thing you should bring is your favorite food.

Come visit Hook 1 Charters and enjoy a wonderful day of fishing!
