Fish Call Charters offers charters ranging from 2 to 7 hours. All the client needs to bring is whatever they want to eat and drink as well as a good attitude for an enjoyable day on the water. I also recommend polarized sunglasses, a hat, a camera, non-aerosol sunscreen, and rain gear. The Captain is normally tipped 15-20% of the charter cost if the clients have enjoyed themselves.

Deposit & Cancellation Policy

Reservations require a credit card to hold the date. Please email or call with credit card number, expiration date, security code, and billing zip code to reserve with credit card. There is no charge for cancellation more than a week before trip. 50% charge for cancellation 7days to 24hrs before trip, and 100% charge for cancellation of 24hrs or less.

Other Policies

Not too many other polices but here they go> Number 1 Rule > HAVE FUN!!! Number 2 Rule > NO aerosol sunscreen. This stuff stains the fiberglass and cushions even if you apply before getting on the boat. Please ONLY use lotion type sunscreen, thank you. We ask that you not bring bottles on the boat unless you are super careful. Please wear shoes with none marking soles (white soles are best). Many of today's running shoes will scuff up the boat. Kids of all ages are welcome, but they count as an additional person no matter the age. We do mostly catch and release fishing. All redfish are released These guys are our business partners, and we can't kill our business partners or we'll go out of business! If you happen to catch a few trout, flounder, or black drum, you are welcome to take home for dinner. There are also a few reef species that we will allow clients to keep like spadefish, sheepshead, mackerel, and cobia. If you are looking to fill the freezer, then I'm probably not the right fishing guide for you.


The "FISH CALL" and "Trophy Hunter" are kept on a jetdock at the Isle of Palms Marina, and unless we specify otherwise, all charters will leave from the Isle of Palms Marina. The Marina is located at 50 41st Ave, Isle of Palms, SC 29451. Try MapQuest below for driving directions. Park in one of the text-to-park parking places. You will need to pay for your own parking using this system. Please meet me on the fuel dock which is located to the right of the Marina Market store. Please arrive about 10 minutes before our arranged charter time. The Marina Market is a fully stocked convience store with any food or drink you might need for our trip, but is currently (March 2023) closed for renovations. Please get whatever drinks/food/etc that you need before getting to marina. I will have a cooler with ice for your things.
