Went fishing with Black Dog Fishing Charters on July 22, 2019
We booked with Black Dog Fishing Charter in Hilton Head with Captain Jon. I highly recommend this trip to anyone that wants a great day out on the water catching fish. Captain Jon was very knowledgeable on where to go so that we were successful in catching fish. Everything was supplied for us so there was no stress involved. A great experience for a family or individuals! The trip is well worth the money!

While Spring and Fall are probably better seasons for fishing, if you are taking your kids for the first time, and want a learning experience, there is nothing better than a trip off HHI - will always get Shark...

Don't expect anything other than being somewhere other than work, we caught 1 fish in the first 2 1/2 hours, when we moved to the final spot we had a fantastic time, everyone caught multiple sharks of substantial size.

Hire Hilton Head Sport Fishing LLC. These guys will put you on the fish, teach you proper rigging and baiting, and where to find the fish around the area. They are experienced and passionate about fishing.

Do a great deal of homework and be very clear of the trips expectations before leaving the dock. The captain explained to us the fish move and everything changes in April. Fishing can be terrible and we spent a lot of money for nothing.

Book a charter, make sure boat has toilet facilities. 3 hours was enough for most of our group and we caught fish that were large enough for our group. If you want larger sharks you will need to go into the ocean and will be a longer and rougher trip. Intercoastal waterway is very calm.

Not the best season to fish in HH, unless you like catching shark. Either stay in shore for redfish or trout, or you'll need a longer trip (at least 5 hours) to get to the nearest reef. Mackerel and Jack can be found, but be prepared to to appreciate the experience without filling the boat!

Fish weren’t biting and we caught several small fish, but Captain Tim made it as easy and enjoyable as could be! Definitely going to be loyal to him in our future excursions. Booking website, however, kept canceling; charters would say they have openings and then would cancel after we reserved, saying they didn’t. :-(

The fish were a bit slow but we had a lot of fun fishing for sharks. Seth and the captain made it a lot of fun for my young child at 18 year and 22 year old...

Book way in advance if you intend on fishing during your time in Hilton Head. If you wait you will have very limited options.

If I had it to do over I would have hit the offshore bite. Inshore bite is a bit off during the summer months.

Take guide trip...june can be a little tough to catch, and knowing where they are is a big help. Have tried fishing in HH myself, and having a guide is the way to go.

Go with an experienced charter boat if you want to catch fish. Islands and Tides would be tough to beat!
