I grew up fishing in the bay's and rivers sourounding Charleston, SC. I have spent my entire life fishing for fun, competition and as a job. I have fished in many exotic locations but by far my favorite place to fish is right here in the South Carolina low country. I love showing my guest what our waters around Kiawah and Seabrook islands have to offer.
