Captain Charlie's Fishing Boat

My primary boat is a 21 foot Carolina Skiff that fishes 4 anglers in comfort. I have outfitted this boat to fish our skinny inshore and near-shore flats. It is powered by a Yamaha 115 horsepower engine that gets my clients to the fishing just plain fast.

I have an observation platform and a bow mounted trolling motor to maximize the type of flats fishing that we principally do. The "posi-grip, no trip hull bottom is designed to spray water downward while we are underway. This boat remains steady and dry even in a moderate chop.Carolina Skiff

My new boat has just tons of room to fish in. As you can see above, my clients can move around the boat and cast with ease. I have not shown my comfortable boating chairs which are stored under the bow and used each trip.

The boat drafts just 5 inches and with my jack plate and extensive knowledge of the waters, I am able to take full advantage of this shallow draft to take you into the back waters where the fish abound. The boat is equipped with an aerated live well and comfortable, padded, forward, mid-ship and rear seating. With its two step forward casting platforms, we have plenty of angling room.

This boat will take you to places where only airboat go but without the noise. It is a fun ride and it can cross mud, oyster bars and get you back where the wildlife is hiding.

In the winter months when it’s near freezing, and many people think the fish won’t bite, this boat will take you where other guides can’t go and where the fish are.

the boat is 18 feet long, and powered by a 37 horsepower motor. For fishing I take up to 2 people. For eco-tours I take up to 4 people with a minimum of 2 people.
