Eastern Tailz – 24' Pathfinder

Come explore the bountiful and charming waters of South Carolina and enjoy some great fishing with Eastern Tailz Outfitters. You’ll start out of Little River and head out to inshore and nearshore waters to chase many intriguing species that live in the area. Captain Joe Ziegler will be there to guide you and help you have the best time on the water possible. Join him and experience the beauty of fishing this part of South Carolina!

Your boat for the day will be a 24’ Pathfinder bay boat that can fit 4 anglers. It runs on a 300 HP Yamaha four stroke engine and uses a GPS, fishfinder, and radio technology for safe and efficient navigation. The boat has also got a livewell to provide you with live bait.

On your trip, you can go after various types of Shark, along with Flounder, Sheepshead, Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Black Drum. You’ll attract them by light tackle bottom fishing and you can choose whether you’ll keep the fish you catch or simply release it back into the water. Kids are welcome to join aboard, so feel free to bring them on your adventure.

Capt. Joe supplies you with all the rods, reels, tackle, as well as lures and live bait. He’ll also cover you for licenses and even clean and fillet your catch for free. Just bring some food and drinks before you depart and you’ll be ready for the fun.

Explore the waters of South Carolina together with Eastern Tailz Outfitters and create many wonderful memories on the water!

Member since July 2017
Growing up in South Carolina allowed Captain Joe's family the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, whether it be duck hunting, fishing, or just enjoying the water. His family established a successful HVAC company but their passion for outdoor sporting was their lifelong career goal. They have spent 28 years educating themselves on the techniques of successful and effective outdoor fishing and hunting techniques. Once Captain Joe and his family found that they had learned and mastered what was needed to be successful in both the chartering and hunting business, they were able to establish Eastern Tailz Outfitters. Whether you're chasing fish tails, ducks tails, or buck tails, the captain can ensure your entertainment and success. He and the rest of the family are so excited to invite you to be a part of the outdoor adventures they have grown so passionately for. They thank you for helping them on their journey and promise it will be an experience to remember.
