We had a great trip!  Kids had a blast catching shark and helping reel them in. We caught a bunch of fish and ended up with several keepers too!  James was enjoyable to chat with and was very knowledgeable. The boat and supplies were all part of the package. It was very easy to book and didn’t require any preparation. Great experience. We would definitely recommend and would love to repeat the trip!  Thanks James!

Capt. James and First Mate Jason were great! My wife and son wanted to catch a shark and they made it happen. Funny guys and good conversation between the catches. If I get the chance, I’ll go out with them again.

What a great experience to see my 74 year old Dad catch A fish for the first time of his life!  Both of my sons had a great time too and nothing like seeing a 9 year old reel in a shark!  Captain James was great with the boys and was determined to help my Dad catch those fish! Thanks for a great time Captain James!

The captain really did well with my 9 yr old daughter ( doesnt like to fish!) and my 8 yr old son. Unfortunately winds were much stronger than the weather forecasted but no oneelse did much . Would use Why Knot charters again for sure!

Great trip with Captain James!  9 year old and 7 year old sons loved catching sharks, sting rays, and drum fish!!!!  Despite rain and seas too high to go in the ocean we still had a wonderful time.  Boys learned to cast and bait hooks.  Loved using the “combo” of squid and shrimp as bait.  Would go again next time we are here.

So glad you guys had an awesome time your boys were great was my pleasure teaching them how to catch fish.

Went fishing on Wednesday, June 14, 2017

This was our first time deep sea fishing in Myrtle beach, and captain James was amazing! He was very kid friendly, which was great for a mother of little ones. More importantly he helped us catch quite a few fish. And even helped my husband catch a 5 ft shark! Which made my husband’s year! The price was good! We will def be coming back on our next vacation to Myrtle beach!

Was my pleasure spending the morning with you and your family ! Glad everyone had a great time and Doug was able to get his shark he wanted to catch

Went fishing on Friday, June 2, 2017

The captain and crew were very professional during our trip. At first they took us to go fish a few miles out when a storm came our way. The captain knew when the waves got too rough and took us close to the bank for safety. Once we were able to go back out the weather was perfect and the water was calm. All four of us caught a fish. When we were done fishing Dan took the fish and filled them for us.

Went fishing on Wednesday, April 26, 2017

Actually capt james was unable to accommodate our venture in murrell’s inlet due to the dredging, so he hooked us up with captain dan and we fished pawley’s island. The fish weren’t really biting but we caught enough for dinner and captain dan was an excellent guide for our trip.

This was only my 2nd adventure out in the Atlantic Ocean, as we left Murrell;s Inlet, Capt James began explaining everything that was taking place, pointing out buoy markers and what they meant, identifying crab pots, showing me the route on the Lowrance GPS. When we started fishing, he pointed out the fish we were fishing for and that’s exactly what we caught, actually around 30-35, but only 2 were keepers. this was great trip and I highly recommend Captain James, will be contacting him my next trip to South Carolina for sure.

Capt James was awesome. We had a wonderful time. He put us on the fish very quickly. I was very happy with the way he took such good care of us and showed us several different ways to catch fish. My daughter caught her first Black Drum.
