Join Captain Dan Connolly and search the area’s inshore and nearshore waters as well as reefs and wrecks and have a great time chasing many different fish species. Pick a date that suits you and embark on your next fishing adventure in South Carolina!

Your trip starts on a 23’ Key West center console that can sit up to 5 guests. It’s powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine with a maximum cruising speed of 50 knots and uses GSP, fishfinder, as well as radio electronics in order to get you to the fish as quickly and safely as possible. The boat has got a wireless trolling motor, livewell, ice-box, and a multimedia system.

You and the captain will catch fish by bottom fishing, trolling, and spinning, using both light and heavy tackle. The species you’ll have the chance to reel in include Mackerel, Spadefish, Blacktip Shark, Flounder, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, and more. If you want, you can keep all the fish you catch and you’re also free to bring kids on the trip.

All the rods, reels, tackle, live bait, lures, as well as fishing licenses will be waiting for you on the boat, so just bring some snacks and drinks to stay refreshed during the trip. If you wish, the captain can clean and fillet your catch as well, free of charge.

Join O-Fish-Al Expeditions and have a great time on the water!

I became a fisherman as a young child when i was taught by my father how to angle both fresh and salt water game fish species. As a young man I fished offshore and inshore with my father and uncle aboard their sportfisher trolling and bottom fishing.
