We chose captain Shannon's charter from the awesome footage of them catching huge red drum. I followed his YouTube channel and kept up with all the new videos he had.
This year for vacation we decided to budget and take one charter while we're down for 2 weeks.
Captain Kerry met us at the dock and we set off to the ocean! After we loaded up on mullet we made our way 3 miles off shore in perfect weather and water conditions. I was surprised to see that the water was so calm compared to our home lake, Lake Wateree.
We set out some poles and trolled live mullet and WHAM! Fish on! Hooked up to some nice Spanish Mackerel! Overall we caught 8 Spanish mackerel and lost about 5 or so just because the fish were hammering our bait. That was the first time for me targeting Spanish Mackerel and it was some nice drag squealing fights!
We enjoyed our trip so much that we actually cancelled some of our other vacation plans and scheduled a 2nd trip! We called Captain Shannon and he wanted us to get the best trip while we were here so he and captain Kerry personally called us and told us what day would be the best to fish.
We headed out the second day and caught summer trout, sea bass, and 2 amazing 30" and a 32" red drum! Captain Kerry coached us through the major fights and helped us land the 2 hawgs.
We had suchhhh a great time! No doubt, if you are wanting quality fish don't waste your money on the "head boats", fish with these guys! They will joke with you and you are guaranteed to have new friends by the end of day!
Here is one of the fights with the 32" red
