Watkins Fishing Guides Hartwell

Tate’s Fishing and Charters runs angling trips out of Reed Creek. Captain Tate’s main priority is to get you on the hotspot where you can land a dream catch of yours.

Apart from light tackle, bottom fishing, and trolling, you’ll employ jigging, and spinning to lure that trophy fish your way. And hook it, of course! You can choose between 5-hour and 8-hour trips. You’ll be fishing for the likes of Bass, and Hybrid Striped Bass, depending on the specific season and the day’s weather.

The adventure begins with the captain’s 24’ Sea Peo boat that can accommodate up to 5 anglers. The boat is equipped with an ice box where you can store your catch, and a wireless trolling motor that will ensure you have a catch.

All the necessary fishing gear is included in the price of your trip. Just don’t forget to buy a valid fishing license ahead of time. You’re welcome to keep all legal species caught during the trip and bring the little ones to enjoy the angling experience, too.

Book your trip and hit the water with Tate’s Fishing and Charters.
