Step aboard a 21’ Sportsman 214 Tournament Bay boat.

While fishing inshore you can catch many species such as Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Black Drum, Bluefish, Striped Bass, and more. Capt.

You can even join him in the evening for the last bite of the day.

Spending time on the water is a great family outing even if you don’t plan to fish. Come aboard for your own custom cruise, which may include a harbor tour, dolphin watching, a lift to a private island, seashell hunting, and many other possibilities. Up to six passengers are welcome aboard for this experience. On board you will find a cooler with ice, water, and soda. You may also bring your own drinks.

Capt. Shane Shields grew up fly fishing the Nantahala River in the mountains of North Carolina. When he migrated south for love, he discovered the warm, salty Low Country waters. For the past few years he has enjoyed fishing the Charleston inlands and navigating her unparalleled pluff mud shores. Capt. Shane's favorite fishing buddy is his dog Banks, but what he enjoys most of all is taking new friends out on the water and bending some rods. He caters to all skill levels, from the novice to the experienced angler.
