About

I was raised an only child by a single mother and my Grandfather. My Mother was the only female commercial crabber in the area. This was and still pretty much is a male-dominated industry and it was hard back breaking work; so you can imagine how determined she was to succeed. Whereas most of my friends’ Fathers taught them how to run a boat, find fish and navigate through the vast rivers and waterways we call the Lowcountry; my Mother taught me. She gave me my first boat when I was 10 years old and turned me loose in the river. Most kids had boundaries consisting of the end of a street or the edge of a neighborhood; mine were giant inlets that led out to the open ocean. It was hard for her to make a living and take care of me but she did it her way and that inspired me to be a second-generation commercial fisherman. Now it’s become a full circle and I have twin two-year-old daughters, Adelyn and Olivia. I hope to show them how to be stewards of the water in a way that they enjoy it for themselves but also carry on the lessons of conservation my Mother taught me.

Edisto is just outside of Charleston and it’s the beach that time forgot. We don’t have large hotels and t-shirt shops but our wetlands and fisheries rival any along the entire east coast.

We offer inshore adventures. By inshore we mean most of our charters and tours take place within the rivers and creeks and inlets we call the lowcountry. My family has been in and around Charleston for over 300 years so we take pride in knowing the best spots for what you are looking for. I still take great pleasure in exploring and finding new hidden places in the lowcountry because it makes me feel like a kid again. You don’t have to go far from the dock to step back into time and see what this place looked like before people settled the area. Wildlife and secret spots are my specialties. Whether it’s fighting fish, interacting with bottle-nosed dolphin, digging up buried treasure or walking secret shell beaches we have you covered for your specific adventure.

We had such a fun trip with Justin. He is extremely experienced, passionate, knowledgeable and safe. Great with kids and adults. Not only an excellent captain but a stand up guy. We had the last charter of the night and as we headed in, our boat came across a distressed vessel. Justin took our family back to shore and quickly went back to assist - adding 3 more hours to night. This did not go unnoticed! Hands down, we will book again. Thanks again Justin!

My son Nick and I had a great time fishing with Justin! It was our first guided fishing trip and we are already planning the next. My 13 year old had only used a fishing rod a few times before the trip and Justin was a great instructor. We enjoyed his company so much that we booked our whole family on a sunset cruise the next day and it made our beach vacation even more special. He’s the best!
