Background
My grandfather was always a fisherman and got me interested in the sport at a young age. Fishing in Charleston, South Carolina is what really opened me up to the world of fishing there is to experience. I grew up fishing in this state, and there is so much diversity in fishing in South Carolina's waters. From the mountain rivers to offshore fishing, I believe the adventure of where the sport can take you along the way is what made fishing my passion. I have been fishing in the coastal waters in and around Charleston since I was a young boy, and I went to college at The Citadel, where I spent every ounce of my free time out on the boat, fishing. After graduating from the Citadel I decided to get my Masters Captain's License, which I did by completing Professional Mariners Training at Chapman School of Seamanship in Stuart, Florida. Soon after, I started my own charter business where I do all kinds of fishing charters tailored to the clients' interest. It's guaranteed to be a great time
Techniques
Here in Charleston, South Carolina, we have both an inshore and offshore fishery. For inshore fishing, I generally use spin tackle with either bait or artificial lures to target Redfish, Trout, Flounder, Black Drum, and sharks. We fish both the bottom and the surface of the water column depending on tides, currents, and wind conditions. For offshore fishing, I do both trolling and bottom fishing. For bottom fishing, I use either live or dead bait, or artificial lures to target Snapper, Grouper, Black Sea Bass, Triggerfish, Cobia, Amberjack, and many other species. For trolling we use dead bait, sometimes combined with artificial lure heads to target Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, Mackerel, and Billfish.
