Tight Line Charters is Charleston’s top fishing operator that will get you hooked on fish! They offer inshore and nearshore trips, which will allow you to fish while taking in the breathtaking scenery of historic city of Charleston.

The charter is locally owned and operated by Captain Jesse Riddle, a USCG certified, licensed, and insured captain. He has been fishing these low country waters for over 25 years and will take you to the best and most productive grounds Charleston has to offer.

This area is rich with fish species such as the super tasty Flounder, Sheepshead, and Black Seabass and you’ll be catching them all! The weather is nice in this part of the world and allows the fish to be active and present year round. You can also catch Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Black Drum, Bonnethead Shark and Jack Crevalle.

The fishing will take place aboard a one of a kind, brand new 2018 Sportsman 227 Platinum Edition boat. This ice blue beauty is a top tier boat with yacht caliber features and comes with the best updated Simrad electronics and performance Yamaha and gives a smooth and clean ride. It features ample storage and seating, a fiberglass hardtop t-top for ample shade with misters for those super hot days to keep you cool and a deep-V bottom that cuts the chop and keeps you dry.

Tight Line Charters will provide you with all fishing gear necessary including baits and a fishing license and will show you how to work a rod if you are a novice angler. Spinning and trolling tackle is provided on board, as well as light and heavy tackle for the big guys.

Captain Jesse has unparalleled knowledge of the area’s fisheries and species, and will share his knowledge with you. You can keep the fish you catch as long as it’s in the legal size limit, and Captain Jesse will help clean and fillet the keepers at the end of the trip.

You should bring sunscreen, a hat, camera, and be ready for some fun on the water. Come get hooked with Tight Line Charters!
