The world is your oyster when you book this 10 Hour excursion with Captain Linus. After you meet up with Captain Linus at the dock, you guys can go over your game plan for the day. Whether you and your captain decide to go offshore, stay in nearshore, or hit the reefs will depend on the weather conditions, the tides, and of course your personal preference. You can even talk with your Captain about hitting multiple areas for a trolling/bottom fishing combo. Captain Linus will provide expert advice on what will be fishing the best that day so listen carefully and heed his advice when deciding how you'd like to spend your day. No matter what you and Linus decide, he will help you load up and store whatever you've brought on board, and make sure you're comfortable! After you get settled in one of the many comfy seats, Captain Linus will start up his triplet 300HP Mercury Verados and you will motor out a couple of miles offshore to do some trolling, bottom fishing, and relaxing. Offshore trips usually involve a lot of trolling and target Marlin, Sailfish, Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo, and Dolphin (Mahi-Mahi). Nearshore trips can include a mix of trolling for King and Spanish Mackerel, and bottom fishing the Reefs for Snapper Species and Black Seabass. Targeting the nearshore Reefs, in particular, can result in Cobia and Amberjack as well! Beyond superior service and luxurious amenities, Captain Linus will provide you with top-of-the-line rods, reels, tackle, and bait, specific to whatever type of fishing you'd like to do that day, along with a cooler full of ice and water, and all necessary fishing licenses you will need for a successful day out on the water.

    Captain Mike and 1st ante Owen were fantastic. We did the close to shire trip and they quickly put us on some large Black Drum and later we found where the Sheepshead were hiding bringing in enough keepers to make anyone proud! Would definitely recommend!

    Our two boat trip was absolutely electric. First off, Capt. Chris' boat was perfect. For the price point, you'd be hard pressed to find a better fishing charter deal out of Charleston. The second boat in our group was equally as nice. Both boats were super comfortable, we just sat in the back on beanbags and drank beer as we raced out about 40 miles offshore. The guides gave us an in depth safety talk before taking off and took every safety precaution available, they definitely found a happy medium between fun and safety though. They were also very well informed about what was in/out of season, and the parameters for keeper fish. On first drop, we had 2 really nice red snapper hookups. Once that bite ran cold, we wasted no time, hopping around to multiple different locations, filling the cooler up with vermillion and other good eating fish. Even got a few 5+ foot sharks for the young'n that was with us. He was so stoked! We ran into a bit of weather but that didn't phase the guides, they had contingency plans to keep us busy. We elected to run deeper to avoid the thunderstorm that formed between us and the land, which meant we got a few extra hours of fishing (no complaints). The highlight of the trip was chumming up a cobia feeding frenzy right on the surface before we booked it back to the marina. Any time you can topwater fish for cobia, you're in for a treat. We almost landed a trophy cobia before a 8+ foot shark breached the surface and completely annihilated it about 20 feet off the back of the boat. It was so primal, none of us cared that we lost the trophy. I recommend these guys to anyone, beginners or lifetime anglers. Will definitely be using them again!
