With the fish currently biting, we're happy to pass along a recent review of our fishing charter courtesy of fishing enthusiast, Drew Pawley. The trip departed from Outside Hilton Head, Shelter Cove Marina. It all started in a scout meeting when I mentioned to a fellow scoutmaster that I had a thing for fishing, and we decided we should do a deep sea fishing trip. I booked a charter with the Outside Hilton Head folks for a five-hour deep sea fishing trip.
The Adventure Starts
I reserved a morning trip, starting at 7:30 AM, for me and five other people, including my trusty co-worker Ben Preisner. We all met at the Neptune Statue in Shelter Cove at 7:15 AM and initiated our trip at the kiosk next to Ela’s Seaside Grille. Our assigned captain, aka “Capt’n Doug,” had us sign our waivers, and moved us along to the 28-foot vessel known as the “Outside Angler ” for obvious reasons… but we’ll get back to that in a minute!
We went through all the safety and other information formalities as we sailed through the Broad Creek, on-route to the wrecks about 30 miles from the shore. Before we exited the creek, Capt’n Doug threw out his cast net for some “menhaden,” or bait fish in case we were up for some share fishing.
After stocking up on live bait, we continued our journey to the ocean via the Calibogue Sound. The large waves made the boat ride fun – like a roller coaster – all the way to our first fishing destination.
