Hook 1 Charters–Hilton Head Island

Come visit Hilton Head Island and enjoy a lovely day of fishing with Hook 1 Charters! You can explore inshore and nearshore waters, lovely flats, as well as the secluded backcountry. They all give you plenty of chance to reel in a worthy catch and have lots of fun. Captain Chandler Williams is a cordial angler with valuable experience from all over the world and he’ll know how to make your stay on the water the best possible. Join him and have a great fishing trip in Hilton Head Island!

The boat you’ll use on your trip is a 19’ Xplor Boatworks flats boat. It can accommodate 3 guests, runs on a 120 HP Mercury Pro XS engine, and uses GPS and a fishfinder for safe and quick movement on the water. You’ll have an ice-box to store your fish and drinks and a livewell to supply you with live bait.

You can go after Great Barracuda, Spanish Mackerel, Tarpon, Speckled Trout, Sheepshead, Black Drum, as well as Redfish. To attract them, you and the captain will be using spinning and fly fishing on light tackle. You can keep and take home all allowed species but you’re free to release them as well if you want to. Kids are more than welcome to join aboard.

Your captain will take care of all the reels, rods, tackle, fly fishing gear, live bait, lures, as well as drinks and fishing licenses. He’ll even clean and fillet your catch, no extra charge. You just arrive on time and bring some food before you embark on your journey.

Come aboard and discover the beauties of fishing in Hilton Head Island’s waters!
