Went fishing on Monday, August 8, 2016

Took us to 3 different locations.  Hand multiple rods out (7-8 total) and kept us informed of what we could be catching.  Always had the hooks baited and cast out quickly.  Great all around experience.  I would recommend it to everyone I know

Went fishing on Friday, July 29, 2016

During our recent visit to Charleston my wife, 15 yo daughter and I had the good fortune to get paired with Compass Rose (Cap’t Asheton) for a morning of fishing.  Asheton was prompt, the boat was clean and well-equipped, and we were on our way.  The first stop yielded some smaller fish and a couple of hits on the stern tackle that severed the wire leaders, but things went quiet.  The winds had prevented boats from getting out to the Nearshore Reef on prior days, but the day was quieter and Asheton suggested we give it a try.

The ride out was bumpy but not too bad, and a spot was picked.  Our first cast yielded a small fish, our second a baby cobia, and our third an 8 lb spadefish.  That was a pretty good start- and then the action really began.  A school of spadefish started congregating and 50% of our casts resulted in a hookup, with most of the others getting hits that we missed.  During the next 90 minutes or so we quickly had enough big ones in the cooler, then it just became catch-and-release.  The last few casts brought in a couple of good-sized sharks and a 34” redfish.  And we were worn out, probably having caught 30+ fish.

A great trip, and Asheton was both professional and personable.  Highly recommended..

Took my two son-in-laws and 14 yr old granddaughter on this trip.  We had a ball!!!! Ashton is great. He put us on fish. The redfish were too big to keep. At the end my granddaughter said she was tired but never got bored during the 5 hrs. we were out. I credit that to Ashton.
