For your next vacation in South Carolina, you’re going to want to book a trip with Above & Below Charters. Captain David is a USCG 100 Ton Master and has been fishing the Atlantic his whole life. Deep sea fishing is his specialty and he can’t wait to take your group out for an exciting day.
The day will be spent on his 38’ “Salty Mistress”, a comfortable sport fishing boat. There is plenty of space for all 8 anglers. There is a cabin for the kids to chill in during the ride out to the fishing grounds. Once the fishing starts, you’ll be grateful for the fighting chair and walkaround option – you’re less likely to lose your fish close to the boat this way!
There is also a tuna tower, giving you that extra edge over your prey, and plenty of rod holders for trolling. There is mostly Penn gear on board for you to troll with, with Penn and Shimano conventional reels. If you’d like to go spearfishing or snorkeling, let the captain know in advance – he has 1 spear gun and 1 Hawaiian sling for you to use, and equipment for snorkeling for 4 people.
Depending on the trip you choose, you can expect to target Blue Marlin, Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Red Snapper, Wahoo, Grouper, and many more. You’ll mostly be trolling, but can do some bottom fishing if there is time on the longer trip.
Kids of any age are welcome but parents need to be with them. It’s a long trip but exciting for them! Life vests are provided.
Included in the price are top-quality rods and reels, all the bait and tackle, and ice. The fishing license for the group is also provided. You should bring a small cooler of food and drink. Beer is allowed, but should be in cans, and not too much! Don’t forget to bring sunscreen, a hat, and to wear light layers of clothing with deck shoes.
