About Your Guide

Captain Shane Shields of Pluff Mud Fishing Charters grew up fly fishing the Nantahala River in the mountains of North Carolina.

When he migrated south for love, he discovered the warm, salty Low Country waters of Charleston South Carolina. For the past few years, he's enjoyed fishing the Charleston inlands and navigating her unparalleled pluff mud shores.

Captain Shane's favorite fishing buddy is his dog Banks, but what he enjoys most of all is taking new friends out on the water and bending some rods. Captain Shane caters to all skill levels, from the beginner to the experienced angler, and looks forward to hosting you and your crew on your next Charleston fishing trip!

I have been in the trend of giving experiences for gifts rather than material things. So I booked this fishing trip for my family in December of 2019. Captian Shane was very knowledgeable and gave amazing tips. He coached us all in proper techniques and helped us every step of the way. At the end of the day we all felt excited about our catches and the time we spent hanging out. His boat is extremely nice and comfy. He is very accommodating and gave us a great experience. We look forward to booking him again in the summer for another trip. Thanks Captian!

Booked this trip as a surprise birthday gift for my husband and his friend. They had a heck of a time. Caught red drum, sea trout, flounder, and a couple black tip shark. When the guys came back they both said they would so it again and recommend Shane! Great overall trip!

The whole trip was amazing. The captain made sure we caught fish. The boat ride he gave us was worth the trip itself, fishing was the cherry on top. We caught flounder, trout, blue crab, and a few other species of fish. We also caught my biggest catch ever a red fish measuring at 33in. I would recommend this trip with captain Shane to anyone, and we will definitely be fishing with him again..
