Hook 1 Charters – Charleston

Spend a memorable day in South Carolina and explore its inshore, nearshore, and backcountry waters, as well as the flats. Starting out of Mount Pleasant, Captain Chandler Williams will take you on a journey where you’ll encounter many different species.

Your captain’s experience in the US as well as across the globe promises you a safe, fun, and successful fishing trip, so pick your day and join him aboard for your next fishing adventure in South Carolina!

The boat you’ll be using is an 18’ Xplor flats boat that fits up to 3 anglers.  It’s powered by a 115 HP Mercury engine and rigged with GPS, a fishfinder, and a radar. The boat can accommodate guests using wheelchairs and features a multimedia system, Yeti cooler, and livewell.

On your trip, you can spin and fly fish on light tackle in order to attract Tarpon, Sheepshead, Great Barracuda, Speckled Trout, Redfish, and Black Drum. Most of the fish you catch have to be released, but you can keep some species. Your captain will be able to fill you in on more details. Kids are welcome to come aboard, so bring them along on your trip as well.

All the fishing equipment, live bait, lures, and water will be waiting for you when you arrive. As Capt. Chandler also takes care of catch cleaning and licenses, the only thing you should bring is food.

Enjoy some beautiful nature and have fun chasing fish together with Hook 1 Charters!
