On these trips, you mostly be doing catch and release fishing. Your main target will be Redfish, which lives in the shallow calm water flats surrounding the barrier islands. You could also target Speckled Seatrout, Flounder, Black Drum, Sheepshead, and Sharks. The best fishing grounds are a short 5-10 minute run from the marina so clients fishing with Capt J.R. get to fishing grounds quicker than most other captains.

Capt. J.R. Waits has been running fishing charters in the Charleston area since 1999. He has been featured in just about every national fishing magazine and several TV shows on ESPN, TNT, and The Outdoor Channel. Capt. J.R. is a regular tournament winner as well having won the Charleston Harbor Tarpon Tournament three times, the Charleston IFA Redfish Tournament, GLoomis Owner’s Tournament, etc. He is one of the most sought after fishing captains on the East Coast.

All flats boat trips leave out of the Isle of Palms Marina. Capt J.R. runs a larger 24’ center console boat during the warmer months (Apr-Oct) which has a 6 passenger maximum. On these trips you could catch and release giant Bull Redfish, Sharks, Cobia, Sheepshead, and Tarpon.
