Background
My father and grandfather were avid outdoorsmen who shared their love for the outdoors with their children. Living close to both fresh and salt water has made me a more experienced Captain. I now have my own outdoor fishing show locally and on ABC.

Techniques
I do a lot light tackle fishing for redfish, flounder and trout. When my clients want to go for the big redfish and sharks we have the tackle to handle them also. Working areas quick to find the fish is one way I am able to get my clients hooked up. Another method is anchoring up on a area putting out several baits at different depths.SPONSORED BY: HUK GEAR, BERKELEY ELECTRIC, MCELVEEN GMC, HILL TIRE, HOME TELEPHONE, CENRAL HARDWARE, COOPER RIVER MARINE, BELLS MARINA AND CAMPGROUND, ORVINS FURNITURE, RESIDENTIAL CONTRACTING, CHRIS GARCIA WITH RE-MAX REALITY, D'S JEWELERS

Went fishing on Thursday, July 20, 2017

We had an awesome time out today. The trip included myself and my father and two 6yo daughters. It was there first trip out on a boat. Captain Joseph put us right on the fish first thing and kept them coming all day. The girls had a blast not allot of whining at all for two girls who got up at 530 am. We caught about 10 trout 1 flounder a toad fish and two 10+ lb red drum and my dad got his inshore grand slam one of each. Awesome day I highly recommend captain Joseph if you want to catch fish.

Thanks for the great review. The girls were so much fun to fish with.  I’m glad they had a good time and your dad got his inshore slam. If those flounder would eat the baits and not just hang on you would have gotten your too lol. Thanks again, Captain Joe

Had an amazing time with Capt Joe! You will like this guy! He’s all about putting you in place to catch fish and having a lot of fun doing so!

We caught 30-40 fish! Lots and lots of redfish, a cute flounder and some nice trout! It was raining off and on most of the day and we still got those fish right into the boat! I can’t count the amounts of bites and times we were laughing and eating snacks and just missed the bite! Ha! So much fun!!

We had a great day of fishing. We caught 25 to 30 redfish, 2 trout and 4 flounders. Captain Joe knew exactly where the fish were and even when they would start biting. He helped my 9 and 11 year old daughters catch a lot of fish. I take 2 or more guided charters a year in Charleston, and I have used several different guide services, but from now on all my trips will be with Captain Joe. I highly recommend him for the following reasons, price, very kid friendly and fishing knowledge. I plan to try a freshwater trip next spring with Captain Joe.

We had the best time and wished we did the full day! Captain Joe was kind and supplied us with everything we needed. We each got our own rods and caught dinner for 15! There was five of us with an 11 year old, and Joe made sure everyone caught something. He even made the trip ten times better!

Had fun day with Captain Joe! We had a family of four with two teenage-girls who never been charter fishing. Captain Joe took us 6 hr trip for the price for typically 4 hrs. We caught whitings, sharks, ribbon fish, crokers, and even rays! He tirelessly prepared and casted for our girls. When we were returning, he stopped by near the fort and small island for bird watching.

It was an excellent trip. Only one thing we missed was there was no ice on the boat to keep our fishes fresh, but we had a little bit of ice on our cooler to make it back.

Captain Joe put us on the big Bull Reds in Charleston Harbor. On our half day trip we nearly constantly had fish on. Big thumbs up for the fun day on the water.

Had a great day with the family salt water fishing. Captain Dennis put us on the fish and was super accommodating with my 84 year old mother-in-law. We plan on hooking up with him the next time we come to town.

Unfortunately we were unable to fish due to an approaching hurricane, however Captain Jay and corresponded several times the week before and he was great in refundING the deposit since we were unable to do the charter.  We will definitely book with capain Jay on our next trip to Charleston.

Captain Joe was outstanding!  He went out of his way to accommodate my son (11) and daughter (10).  They both felt very comfortable through his kindness, patience, knowledge and humor.  We fished several inshore locations and caught about 25 fish.  About 20 were legal size.  The species were Black Drum, Redfish, Sheepshead, Sea Trout, Pinfish, Ladyfish and Flounder.  Obviously, the fishing was really good.  But, Capt. Joe mentioned that if fishing was poor, he would have extended our time at no additional charge until we caught fish.  That was great to hear!  By the way, my son said it was the best day of his life!

First clear day after several with heavy rains.  The Captain was eager to put both my wife and I on some red fish.  Tide was high and waters were murky.  After much hands on instructions from our Captain, we had several strikes and caught five.  It was a beautiful morning and we were in good hands.  Look forward to returning the Charleston area and fishing once again with Captain J Hook Charters.

My wife and I had a great fishing trip with Captain J. He was very personable and knowledgable. We caught over 30 red fish.  After our experience today we would definately contact him again when we travel to the Charleston SC area.
