“Unmatched Professionalism”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

Captain Brian represents the best of Hilton Head. He provides a clean, comfortable workspace and ensures that the client is well taken care of.

Captain Brian took us straight to the fish without wasted effort. And the bull redfish would not let up. They worked our tackle, as well as our arms, to the max.

These fish don't stay for very long but provide some of the best action of the year. Captain Brian's experience and sharp instincts allowed us to put these great-looking fish in the boat, savor the experience, and release them unharmed-- what a sight!

A fine day indeed

“No show and no help”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

Sorry to post a bad experience but we booked a 4 hour trip. 45 minutes prior to the start time we received a call from the captain stating he wouldnt be able to do the whole 4 hours because he hurt his back. We agreed that would be ok. Then he called back ~10 minutes later and backed out of the trip. Now I will give him the benefit of the doubt that he hurt his back on a morning trip but it was completely unacceptable that he did not take the time to call around through his many contacts and find us a replacement. We did find a replacement who was excellent. He told us that he has sent off the hook many referrals when he was booked.

First of all this is the first terrible rated review of my business. Accidents happen and most people are understanding of that. The captain that runs trips for me hurt his back earlier that morning and obviously when he called the first time he thought he may have been able to still get you out for a few hours and then realized it would be to much for his back to handle for 3 hours. He was very apologetic when he called to cancel and he DID recommend another guide for you to contact to go out with and I am glad it worked our for you. I am just speechless why you had to post this review and not been more understanding that accidents happen and people get hurt.

“Super day fishing with Off The Hook Charters 10-11-13”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

My son and I had a great morning with Capt. Vaughn. We started out catching trout, the top water action was exciting! After an hour of trout, we decided to look for red fish. In a short time, Brian had us over a large school. We were able to catch half a dozen nice sized reds. I am a return customer and find Brian to be hard working and knowledgeable. He never fails to find fish.

“Another awesome trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Brian and I went out for a morning late in September. Once again, I had an awesome day. Only caught one large bull redfish, but got a chance to fly fish some of the small creeks that feed the Broad River. The salt marsh is beautiful and we had an awesome sunrise and a gorgeous Hilton Head day. Brian always does a great job and I am definitely looking forward to next fall when I can go out with him again.

“Great Hilton Head Fishing With Cpt. Brian Vaughn 10-4-13”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

Spent a half day fishing with Cpt. Vaughn. It was excellent. We started out exploring the marsh for tailing red fish on a fly rod. Saw some but they spooked. Along the way saw many shore birds and got great camera shots. Then went after bull reds. Caught five of those plus four sharks -- all of which were released. The fish ranged between 10 to 35 lbs. Cpt. Vaughn was very professional and safety conscious. His flats boat is perfectly set up and maintained. It is absolutely clean and all equipment from fly rods to spinning gear is first class. We are looking forward to our next trip with Cpt. Vaught and highly recommend him. -- Paul M
