$391.14

We know about the amazing connection that can occur when man and fish collide in an epic battle of wills. Let us guide you in that memorable fight while catching every battle in HD with our GoPro!

The combination of warm gulf stream currents, low country fresh water drainage and mild winters create one of the most spectacular saltwater estuaries in the world, just outside of Charleston on James Island. The estuary in turn gives rise to huge populations of shrimp, crab and mullet, made vulnerable to larger prey by huge tidal swings. The result is one of the great inshore fisheries in North America. Redfish, speckled trout and flounder abound. The scenery is spectacular, the boat is comfortable, the guides are great and the fishing will provide a wonderful memory.
