Angler's Choice
The Angler's Choice Award is given to listings that consistently deliver a high-quality service and earn great reviews from customers.
Fishing has always been a tradition in the Lindler family. From the time he was 4 years old, Captain James' father and grandfather would drag him along with them to fish for Crappie and Largemouth. As a youth, he would willingly go along, but fishing was not high on his list of priorities. However, that all changed during his years at the University of South Carolina. Several of Captain James' fraternity brothers were avid anglers, and he started joining them on their excursions to local rivers. After several successful outings for White Bass, Perch, and Catfish, he became more and more obsessed. His passion was ignited, though, when he hooked his first big Striper! The strike, the folded rod, the screaming drag, and his burning biceps made it all over but the shouting. The captain was totally hooked on those beautiful, silver, and black creatures! As a retired educator, Captain James is thrilled to have the opportunity to share his passion with others!
