Rainmaker Fishing Charters

Rainmaker Fishing Charters offers a range of awesome fishing trips around the Hilton Head area and beyond. Battle Bull Reds and Silver Kings in the shallows, drop lines for huge Grouper and Snapper offshore, or take on the world’s top predators in specialty Shark trips. There’s something for everyone!

Captain Tim’s 25’ Sea Hunt center console is as at home in the shallows as she is in the bluewaters, and is loaded with enough tech and equipment to dominate them both. The vessel’s T-top gives you somewhere to shelter from the summer sun offshore, and her small size lets her get into the shallower waters of the sounds in search of the best catch.

What makes Rainmaker Fishing Charters unique is the sheer amount of trip options you have to choose from. You can have a quick six hours offshore if you want to catch big bottom fish in a hurry, or can take your time by adding an hour to your inshore adventure. This is especially useful for ambitious sportfishers looking for trophy Tarpon.

All trips come with tackle, bait, lures, and licenses - everything you need for the fishing itself. Captain Tim loves working with anglers of any age, and is always happy to teach beginners the tricks of the trade. If bringing small children, parents should consider bringing a life vest you know they will wear, but Captain Tim also stocks child size vests just in case.

At the end of your trip, all your catch will be cleaned and filleted, ready to cook up as the perfect end to a great day on the water. Just remember to pack a big cooler in the trunk - the fish you’ll be catching aren’t small!

About the Captain

I grew up always curious about the ocean and what lies beneath the waves. That led me to take up fishing the waters off Hilton Head when I was young. I went on to study marine biology in college and moved to the Florida Keys working as a nature guide on the coral reefs surrounding Big Pine Key. It was an awesome experience and I got to do plenty of fishing down there but I decided to move back to Hilton head and focus on my local waters. I started fishing on The Straycat with capt. Jim Clark. I worked for him and most of the other captains on The North End Charter Fleet Dock at some point or another. For me fishing is an adventure and it is my passion to do what I can to give people that thrill. Every day brings a new adventure and that is why I became a fisherman.
