Captain J Hook Fishing Charters

Choose Captain J Hook Fishing Charters for inshore and nearshore fishing out of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. Captain Joseph Dennis is prepared to help you target the species of your choice, whether you come aboard for just a few hours or a full day of fishing. Join him and reel in a catch to remember!

You will fish aboard a 23’ Epic powered by a 175 HP Suzuki engine. This craft comes equipped with all the gear and technology you need for a successful day on the water. On board you will find GPS, fishfinder, and a well-stocked live bait well. A fighting chair will help you to reel in the hardest fighting fish. There is room on board for four passengers and children are welcome.

Your guide Capt. Joseph is an experienced angler and the host of the show Father And Son Outdoors TV, featured on MY TV Charleston and WCIV ABC Channel 4. He’s ready to share his insights with anglers of all skill levels, whether on camera or on the water. He can help you target a wide variety of species, including Redfish, Flounder, Spanish Mackerel, Blacktip Sharks, and more.

Depending on the species, you might target your catch using any method from spinning and jigging to bottom fishing. Capt. Joseph provides fishing gear by Shimano and B’n’M. You can also target some species by fly fishing if you choose to bring your own fly rod. In winter, you may even be able to bow fish for Sheepshead, Black Drum, and Rays (be sure to bring your own bow).

Captain J Hook Fishing Charters provides a fishing license and spinning gear. Depending on the species, you may keep your catch or release it for another day. You can also join Capt. Joseph for freshwater fishing just 20 minutes away in Cross, SC.

Book your trip today and see for yourself why these waters are home to some of the best inshore fishing in the country!

My father and grandfather were avid outdoorsmen who shared their love for the outdoors with their children. Living close to both fresh and salt water has made me a more experienced Captain. I now have my own outdoor fishing show locally and on ABC. Check us out on YouTube: Father and Son Outdoors TV.
