We did not catch many fish. It theexperience with Lawson, zipping through the creeks on his amazing boat, and learning all about how to fish the area were well worth it.

My son and I had a great time with Captain Lawson. We caught a variety of fish including redfish and black drum. Captain Lawson is very knowledgeable of the tides and area. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to fish in creeks or the flats in the low country. Next time I’m in Charleston, I plan on booking a trip with him again!!
