About Your Guide

Captain Jeremy started fishing the inshore waters surrounding the Charleston, SC area at the age of 15. Now in 2021, he hass over 30 years of fishing experience and has been running local charters for 15 years. He is a full-time fishing guide with countless hours of fishing experience in the Charleston Harbor, the Wando and Cooper Rivers, catching anything from redfish to monster sharks along the beaches.

He encourages novices, seasoned anglers and families with children to join him. Your fishing trip is important to him as all his charters are tailored around your experience and the species you would like to catch. All fishing trips are planned around the best tidal phase to ensure a successful fishing adventure that you will never forget!

The thrill of a "screaming drag" from hooking a big fish is something that he wants you to remember!


Consists of fishing in the rivers, creeks, inlets and beaches surrounding Charleston. Typically the water is calm and land is always visible so motion sickness medicine is usually not needed, but feel free to bring some. The travel time from the dock to the fishing destination is short - typically 20 minutes so you will be fishing within minutes. On this type of fishing charter, depending on the time of year, we target Red Drum (aka Redfish or Spot Tail Bass), Sea Trout, Flounder, Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, Sharks, Sheepshead and more! We use spinning reels and a variety of live bait, such as shrimp and finger mullet. This is the most popular excursion and is available in 1/2 day, 3/4 day and full day trips. Read More

Fishing trips are along the beaches, bridges and rock jetties. On these trips, Captain Jeremy will take you out to target huge sharks and Big Bull Red Fish that frequent the coast during the summer and fall months. Some of the sharks we encounter on this trip are Bonnetheads, Black Tip, Sand, Bull, Nurse, Lemon sharks and more! The Bull Red Drum we target on this trip are much bigger than the redfish we catch in the creeks. These fish can weigh upwards of 30lbs and are a hard-fighting fish and lots of fun to catch. Captain Jeremy will provide rods, reels, tackle, licenses, tackle, bait, an ice cooler, and bottled water. Feel free to bring your own equipment as well as any food and drinks of your choice. Don’t forget sunscreen and a hat. Read More
