About the Captain

Matt Swan
Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, United States
Member since February 2017
USCG licenced Captain and Officer with 30 years of experience. I'm a full time charter captain here in Charleston, South Carolina. I have owned, operated and guided boats charters all my life. I'm extremely detailed, dedicated and driven to catch fish. Most importantly: be safe, have fun and get fish on the deck! I have a keen sense for locating fish. The key is knowing where the fish are, the correct bait selection and presentation. I believe in superior quality boats, equipment, and tackle to ensure the fish that are hooked...stay hooked. These strategies have always delivered positive results and have also proven to provide an outstanding fishing experience. Fish hard, don't give up and give it all you got to get them on the boat!

While we (family of four) didn’t catch anything,captain Matt was very personable and ensured that we moved to various fishing spots to increase our chances of catching fish. I understand that August is not a good time of year for fishing. We had a good time, in spite of not catching anything. I would recommend Capt Matt. When we return to SC we for sure will reserve our fishing trip with him again!!
