Lucky Strike Charters – Island Girl

South Carolina is one of the gems of the eastern coast of the US for fishing. Due to its fantastic location, fishermen have been able to reach the blue water and fish for pelagics in a fraction of the time it would normally take them. With Island Girl, you can do the same.

Climb aboard their 43’ offshore sportfishing vessel, built by the capable Key West manufacturer, restored in 2021. It’s powered by a pair of 315 HP Yanmar engines, allowing her to reach a speed of 25 knots. She’s also capable of holding up to 6 anglers fishing at the same time, perfect if you’re planning an organized trip for organizations.

Captain Dan is an experienced fisherman and charter operator, being a second-generation fisherman. Combined with the fact that Island Girl captain has over 30 years of experience chartering local waters, you are in solid hands to have an excellent fishing adventure. All the required equipment for your chosen trip is provided by the charter operators. This charter offers a fantastically varied set of trips: from great starting experiences such as bottom fishing for Groupers by the coast, all the way to fighting sharks by the pier.

Island Girl gladly welcomes anglers of all skill levels and has a trip for you, whether you’re holding a rod for the first time or gearing up to hook that Shark in. There’s no minimum age policy for children, all sizes of life vests are provided. The crew will provide catch cleaning and filleting service free of charge.

Versatility is their forte, so free cancellation is available up until 1 week before the trip starts.
