After speaking with a couple of guides and doing a little research, my wife and I went with Capt. David Lane of Marsh Maven Fishing Charters. We had an excellent day on the water and fishing aside, Capt. David was just a great person to be around. We boated 9 reds and 3 trout in only 4 hours.

There are lots of Charters available in Charleston/Mt. Pleasant and I was uncertain who to call. On a recommendation I booked with Capt. Dave. I am so glad I did! I have fished LOTS of charters, literally around the world. Capt Dave not only could put you on fish, he was ready, willing and able to share knowledge, switch out... More

I had the best time fishing with Captain David! Being a novice I appreciated his experience and helpfulness. He is very professional and attentive. I was impressed with the nice fishing equipment and clean boat. I caught some nice Redfish! I'm looking forward to going out again the next time I'm in Charleston!

Just had a excellent fishing charter with captain David and Marsh Maven Charters. David's communication scheduling the trip and finding out what WE wanted to do was great. We had a awesome morning catching plenty of redfish and trout using artificial lures and some live bait. David adjusted what we did according to the conditions and was right there to... More

Our first trip with David inspired us to buy a boat. Since we still can't catch them on our own, we keep coming back to David for more success. David knows has spots and knows the tides to hit the redfish in the flooded grass. He also knows the places to reel in anything from a fantastic flounder to trophy... More

Capt Mike took us up the Wando River for an afternoon of fishing for reds. We had a relatively slow start to catching fish, but Capt Mike kept adapting (bait, locations, techniques) and we ultimately hauled in some nice reds. Recommended.

Capt David took my fiance and I out the morning after we got engaged to celebrate! Couldn't have asked for a better day! He got us on the fish quick, he was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Can't wait to get back down to Charleston to go fishing with him again. Highly recommend!

Overall good day, David, the Guide did everything he could to put us on the fish! Was a slow day that ended very well with 30" redfish, sight fishing on river by river bank Oyster Bed. We will use Marsh Maven on our next visit. Thanks David for making t a good day

Yeah, that was some tough sledding and I wish we had caught a few more fish. Good work on the ones we did catch. The red at the end of the day of the day was a "day maker" and a lot of fun. Thanks again for fishing with me, I enjoyed spending the afternoon with ya'll. More

Really enjoyed our morning with Capt. David. Fishing was a little slow but David worked to put us on Red Fish. We would have caught more fish if we would have been better at getting our bait to where Capt. David told us to cast. We'll practice before next time. Thanks for enjoyable day on the water.
