Tight Line Charters is locally owned and operated by Captain Jesse Riddle, a USCG certified, licensed, and insured captain with an outstanding reputation. He is an avid angler in shallow and deep water and has been fishing low country waters for over 25 years and will take you to the some of most productive fishing grounds.
They will provide you with all fishing gear necessary, including baits and fishing licenses. You’ll be using all PENN gear and you’ll be targeting Redfish, Flounder, Sharks, Trout, Sheepshead, and Black Drum inshore. Nearshore you’ll be targeting Snapper, Triggerfish, Grouper, Amberjack, Cobia, Kingfish and more depending on the time of year. The weather is great for the most part year-round in the Southeast, which allows the fish to be active.
Fishing will take place aboard a 26’ Contender powered by new twin 200 HP Yamaha engines. These boats are some of the absolute best tournament boats and are considered a staple in the fishing industry. The boat is equipped with all updated electronics and performance by Yamaha which gives a smooth, quiet, clean, and dry ride. It has ample dry storage room and seating, and an oversized t-top to provide ample shade.
Capt. Jesse has unparalleled knowledge of the area’s fisheries and species, and loves to share his knowledge with his clients. You can keep the fish as long as it’s in the legal size limit, Capt. will clean them for you. If you would like to have your catch for dinner, you’ll have to book a longer, nearshore or offshore trip. An automatic 20% gratuity is added to any parties of 5 or more.
