Our son booked an inshore fishing trip with Tight Line Charters for my wife and I on a recent visit to Charleston, SC. Jesse is a very professional guide and extremely knowledgeable of the waters in the Charleston area. He knew all the right places to take us to get a big catch. We started out fishing the “skinny waters” behind Isle of Palms and caught numerous slot-length red drum, a few really nice black drum and even one sheepshead chomping at a pier piling. We then moved into Charleston Harbor and hooked-up on big bull reds in the 36-inch range to end a perfect day. We had an amazing adventure and would recommend Tight Line Charters to any of my friends and family! Keith & Tricia Goodrich Richmond, VA

Man oh man what a day that was!! With fish steady biting in every hole we went to you really couldn’t ask for more! And then when we went to deeper water for the big bull reds it was one every 5 min and double hookups!! What an amazing day it was I hope y’all had a blast I know I sure did haha. Hope to see y’all again in the future!!
