VJ Charters

7107 Gray Street
Columbia SC, United States

VJ Charters is based in Columbia, South Carolina. They are run and operated by Captain Johnny, who invites you to join him for a day out on the beautiful Lake Wateree or Lake Murray. The Captain is a professional guide with decades of experience at the helm.

You will be fishing aboard a 20-foot center console boat, powered by a 150 HP Mercury engine. The vessel can comfortably take up to six people. Rigged with navigational electronics, including a GPS and a fish finder, as well as an anchoring system, the boat also features a wireless trolling motor and a live bait tank.

Captain Johnny specializes in trolling, jigging, and light tackle fishing techniques. He knows the right way to catch that trophy fish and is also a great teacher, so with him, you will be able to learn a lot about the ecosystem and various species. Choose where you want to go fishing and what you want to target. A ride on Lake Wateree will see you chasing trophy Catfish in late winter as well as Crappie, which you can also go for in early spring.  Fishing on Lake Murray will give you a chance to catch Striped Bass. VJ Charters offers different packages, depending on how many people are fishing. You can choose the package for 1-4 person if you want to spend your day on the water alone or with a couple of friends or a family member. The 5-6 package will be an ideal option for a bigger group of friends or a family. Kids are very welcome!

Your trip will include all state-of-the-art rods and reels, as well as tackle, lures, and live bait. You may want to bring your own snacks and drinks on board!

VJ Charters offers an excellent opportunity to enjoy a day out with an experienced and professional guide on the beautiful waters of the South Carolina lakes.
