Lowcountry Boys Charters

2408 Maybank Highway
Johns Island SC, United States

Lowcountry Boys Charters runs super fun fishing trips on the Charleston coast of South Carolina. You can spend a half or a full day on the water with Captain Elliott Thomas who’ll show you the best fishing spots this area has to offer, as well as breathtaking scenery on a sunset cruise. Bring your kids along and have a great family bonding experience on the water.

Captain Elliott was born and raised in this area, fishing the waters of Charleston with his dad since he was just a little boy and learning all about the local fisheries. He is a USCG licensed captain who cares that his guests have a good and safe time aboard his boat. He will give his all to teaching you, and especially the kids anything they want to know about fish or baiting a hook.

You will go out on his 24 foot Everglades center console boat, originally built in 2008, and restored in 2017. The boat is powered by a 250 HP Yamaha 4 Stroke engine that makes it fast and gets you out and back in very quickly. It features all the latest electronics and safety equipment, a live well for the live bait, an icebox for the catch, and an awesome multimedia system.

Lowcountry Boys Charters can take you on some of the greatest inshore and nearshore fishing trips in Charleston. Your target species in the inshore waters will be Black Drum, Black Seabass, Flounder, Redfish, Blacktip Shark, Trout, Tarpon and Gag Grouper. If you decide to head to the nearshore waters and the reefs, you can target Spanish Mackerel, Sheepshead, and Mahi Mahi.

Captain Elliott will provide the fishing gear, live bait, a fishing license, and drinks. You are welcome to bring a cooler so you can transport your catch home safely, as it will be cleaned and filleted at the end of your trip.

We spent 4 hours with Dylan, my husband, two teenagers, and my 77 year old father. Dylan was super informative and great with my kids. We saw lots of dolphins, Charleston from the water and caught a few fish too! Highly recommend as Dylan made it fun for all.
