Background
I became a charter Captain because I want to share with people the beauty of the Carolinas and show them our awesome fishery. I am not a Captain that will sit in one spot and not move all day. I believe in going after them and if they move off one piece of structure then I'm moving to where they are. My clients pay to catch fish and that's just what we are going to do!
