On these trips, you will be fishing aboard Captain Shane’s 34-foot sportfisher with one 450 HP Cummins engine. This boat can accommodate up to 6 anglers.
Captain Shane will provide all rods, reels, tackle, lures, and fishing licenses. Live bait is included in the price of the trip. A first mate will also be on board to help you when you need it. They will clean and fillet your day’s catch for you. Don’t forget to bring food and drinks of your choice, a hat, sunscreen, and some good company!
This is a good trip for more experienced anglers or perhaps a larger group that wants more fishing time to entertain everyone. You can fish for Cobia (Mid-May to mid-June), Barracuda, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, and a variety of sharks from 10 lbs. to 100 lbs. Captain Jeff will usually take you 5 - 15 miles offshore. To fish for Tiger Sharks (their biggest game) an 8-hour trip is necessary.
8 and 10-Hour Trips
You’ll be fishing for the same species that you’d target in the 6-hour option, but bigger and of a wider variety. Test your casting accuracy as you target Blacktip Sharks, Cobia, Kingfish, and a host of other hard-fighting fish.

Capt Jeff is a former banker who worked with Merrill Lynch, CoreStates Bank (now Wachovia) and Commerce Bank (now TD Bank), and credits this background for his dedication to running a clean and tight ship.
He and his crew like hosting families and often get three generations on the same trip. They also host bachelor parties and groups of Marine Drill Sergeants from neighboring Paris Island as well.
The Boats: Captain Jeff's fleet offers three of the largest and most comfortable charter boats on Hilton Head Island:
The Gullah Gal, a 34′ Crusader Fly Bridge, is Captain Jeff's smoothest and calmest ride at a crusing speed of 20 mph.
True Grits, a 34′ Fitz Fly Bridge, is a great all-around performance option with a cruising speed of 25 mph.
Captain Jeff's newest boat, Honey B, is a 35′ Bertram with 740 HP. This vessel has a cruising speed of 30 mph to get you on the fish fast!
All boats host 6 people maximum, offer space in the shade, and feature onboard restrooms.
Captain Jeff and First Mate Seth were outstanding! Captain Jeff recommended the 6 hour trip to get best experience for this time of year. Our goal was to get a bunch of action and take home the keepers for dinner. His recommendation was spot on. We caught a ton of ...Read More Black Sea Bass and caught enough for dinner. First Mate Seth did a great job connecting with the kids while keeping the hooks ready to go with bait. We truly enjoyed our time on the water with this crew. We will be be back again!
First of all, let me say that we can’t wait to go out with Captain Jeff and his first mate Seth again. And the True Grits was comfortable and a sturdy boat. Captain Jeff put us on the sharks quickly and between us we caught 9 fish (and a Whiting ...Read More that I just couldn’t seem to hold on to!) which included Bonnethead Sharks, Reef Sharks, and Bull Sharks. Not only was the fishing fun, but their company and hanging out was worth the trip. Both Captain Jeff and Seth were engaging and funny. Looking forward to our next trip with you guys! If you’re looking for a family friendly trip, or just a knowledgable and experienced Captain and Crew, look no further than the True Grits and Captain Jeff. Thank you again for a memorable trip!
This is a trip you don’t want to miss!! Capt. Jeff and 1st Mate Seth are the best and will make sure you have a great time. Perfect boat and equipment for what you’re doing too!
