  • What should we bring on our charter?
    In South Carolina, sunscreen is a must during all weather. Creams seem to work better than the spray type. Bring what you plan to eat and drink (no glass bottles). Captain will supply ice and water. Staying hydrated is crucial in the southern heat. A hat with a bill and a pair of polarized sunglasses will cut the glare on the water and may help you catch more fish. Wear non-marking shoes. If you plan on keeping fish be sure you bring a cooler to transport them home, please leave it in your vehicle until the charter is complete. You do not need to bring a fishing license.​
