WHAT I SHOULD KNOW- 

Though SCDNR does not currently have a creel limit on Blue Catfish, they do impose a limit of one fish above 36" in length per person. We do all we can to enhance and protect the resource and request fish over 20 lb be released though it is not required.  Catch- Photo- Release is recomended.    We do LIMIT the boat (all fisherman collectively) creel to 1 full 100+ quart cooler.  This is will yeild generous portions for all on  board. 
Our captians do not clean fish and Fish Cleaning is not included in your rate. We sometimes have mates onboard/ at port that clean catches for a fee. Please let us know as soon as possible if you will need cleaning services.   Our USCG Captains are licensed and safety is always first.  They do not mind if a few beers goes well with your fishing day, but intoxication is not included in your rate.  NO HARD LIQUOR or ILLEGAL DRUGS will be allowed on the boat, and if found the day will end without refund. 
Catching Fish is not a gurantee and we  do not guarantee fish, but that you will be fishing where fish are caught. It is our goal on every outing that our clients have a good time above all else.
 
STRIPER FISHING

When in season and on captains option we offer trips targeting these inland reel burners!  Striped   Bass are native to saltwater but were accidently landlocked when the lakes were formed.  After some time it was discovered that the species was able to reproduce and thrive completely cut off from the ocean. They are strong fighters and offer a challenge to any angler!  Stripers are open water nomadic schoolers that there home is where the food is.  Our boats are outfitted specifically for fishing for these fish and can carry up to 6 fisherman per trip.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
I will usually have a few drinks in the boat but if you have something that you prefer you should bring it.  We can break for lunch (suggested) or you can bring your own.  Time for lunch on the water is "fishing", time for a "lunch break" is not.  If you have your own equipment I suggest 3-4 rods per person- ask and I will be specific as to what you may need.  If you do not have your own rods or tackle, I will be glad to provide you with equipment suitable to your experience level.   PLEASE let me know ahead of time that you will need equipment. 
You will need a SC Fishing License valid for the date's on the water. This can be obtained online at the line provided or at most local tackle shops.

ALL USCG safety equipment, gas, and oil are provided.  Any equipment you use such as rods and reels- hardbaits is rent free.  Soft Plastics of a warranted amount, lost hard baits, or broken equipment due to mishandling will need to be replaced.


WHAT I SHOULD KNOW-
Our USCG Captains are licensed and safety is always first. We do not mind if a few beers goes well with your fishing day, but intoxication is not included in your rate.  NO HARD LIQUOR or ILLEGAL DRUGS will be allowed on the boat, and if found the day will end without refund. 
Catching Largemouth Bass requires more skill and patients than other fish.  Those that choose bass fishing as a hobby or sport should know that some days are better than others.  Due to these factors we do not guarantee fish, but that you will be fishing where fish are caught. It is our goal on every outing that our clients have a good time above all else.
 
On the Lakes-- 

  

Santee- Cooper-

Marion and Moultrie - This is a lowland impoundment, damned in the 1950's.  Both lakes Marion and Moultrie were left with an abundance of natural structure when they were flooded making them a fishermans heaven.  Anything a savvy angler would want to fish is present- wood, trees, weeds, pads, drop-offs.. its all here.   The lakes were stocked with Florida strain bass, making every cast a potential trophy.  Shad, panfish, and herring are the primary baitfish.  The fish of Santee are like no others, offering a challenge to even the most seasoned bass fisherman.    The shallow back waters during this time team with aggressive largemouth.    3-4lb fish are common and the chance for a fish 6 pounds and up is always there.   Trophy time on the lakes starts early in the year, and fish over 6lbs are common all year long.
