THE BEST FISHING CHARTER IN HILTON HEAD, SC!

Trent was a true expert on the water and put us on more fish than we could keep. Even with unfavorable wind and less than normal water visibility, he knew exactly where to put the boat and the bait! It was an honor fishing with this gentleman and I can’t wait to do it again!

We had a great morning with Captain Trent. He obviously knows his stuff and we will be back to fish with him again. I have used six different charters over the past six years and this was by far the best.

My brother, nephew and I went out with Captain Stacey in the lagoon and we had an absolute blast! My 9 year old nephew loved catching the trout and is saying it was the highlight of our vacation. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to catch big fish without going out into the ocean.

Captain Trent and his team are the best in the Low Country. If you go to Hilton Head, take the time to book a trip. It's well worth it.
