Had a 3/4 day trip booked with Cap’t Eddie.  When we arrived he was very straightforward- the winds were too high for a decent day at the reefs, and an incoming front had moved the fish further out so no one was catching anything inshore.  His strong (and apologetic) view was to cancel the trip as he didn’t think it would be either enjoyable or productive, and he didn’t think it would be right to waste our money.

We really appreciated his honest evaluation, and based on our experience not all captains would have been so candid.  We really look forward to making it out on the water with him during our next Charleston trip, and are sure he will be as good a fisherman as he is a person.  Definitely recommended.

Four hour trip and did not catch a single fish that could be kept. The captain went to one spot and never moved. You would think once he saw we were not catching anything, he would have tried a new spot.

I beg your pardon Sir. Did catch fish. And several big hook ups just could not set the hooks and lost fish at boat . I can’t put them on hook for you. Maybe it’s because the Ladies on the trip out fished you . That being said if you would have talked to me about it first I could have arranged a inshore trip at no charge for you like I have for Two other trips this year.
