Deep Sea Fishing

There is something about the catch that keeps people baiting their hooks for the big fish. Sarah Menard and her gal pals, Jenny Sharp and Gidget Fettes, have been deep sea fishing together in Lowcountry tournaments for years. Sarah started with her father when she was young and said, “It’s the thrill of catching the fish! You sometimes don’t know what you’re going to get. And the fight is always fun.” The big fish, like Kobia, Mackerel, and Kingfish, are found 30 to 50 miles off the Georgia coast, so this is an ‘all in, all day’ adventure. “You have to be 100% committed. It’s a bucket list item, for sure!” said Menard who fishes with private charters.

If you want to cast your hook in deep sea fishing, the charters at the Sea Pines Resort in Hilton Head, South Carolina can help you fulfill your lifelong dream of reeling in your very own “Jaws.” Sea Pines oversees private charter adventures for groups of six or less. Lesli Whitener, one of the Sea Pines expert anglers explains that their resort is unlike any other because it is “fabulous, with a small group of fishing instructors, therefore, you can get a lot of individual attention.” Leslie has over 31 years of experience with chartering fishing groups who want to explore the deep sea. From dolphin watching, inshore catching, to deep-sea fishing for the craziest fish swimming around down under, the ocean is your oyster for endless possibilities and catches. Pricing ranges from $300-$1315. Offshore, inshore, deep sea, and shark fishing are available on four different boats that vary in size and purpose.
