It’s still dark in Charleston, SC, as your party approaches the slip where your Head Shaker fishing charter boat is docked. There, USCG-licensed Capt. Legare Leland is making the final preparations for your Charleston/Isle Of Palms fishing charter. Capt. Leland has loaded the gear, and already caught today’s fresh bait – chosen specifically for the type of fish you are after.

Relying upon tide charts and decades of fishing and boating experience – and depending on your flexibility - Headshaker Charters will recommend the optimum day and time to help ensure a fun, productive Charleston/Isle of Palms fishing excursion.

After a short cruise up the coast, you reach your fishing destination. Whether you are poling the flats fishing for redfish, or fishing the inlets  for flounder, trout, and reds, Capt. Leland has selected this spot for optimum fishing success. When the time is right, you cast your line. Of course, if you have more fishing enthusiasm than experience, Capt. Leland will be glad to cast for you until you get the hang of it. Anglers at every skill level will enjoy their HeadShaker fishing charter!

Flexibility is Key with Headshaker Fishing Charters

On a perfect day, you will have arrived at the ideal fishing spot, and you can stay for hours. However, if for some reason the fish aren’t hitting, usually within 20 minutes or so, Capt. Leland is ready. It may require a new type of bait, different gear, traveling to a new spot, or going after a different species of fish. Headshaker Charters has the flexibility that comes from a lifetime on the water to make the best of any fishing conditions.

#31 (460x460) Laurens red fish, Charleston SCSometimes you spend a few hours, have some fishing success and head back. Sometimes it’s an off day that just turns around at the last minute. Sometimes, you are so successful that, frankly, you have had your fill halfway through your fishing charter. Why not spend the rest of the time cruising up and down the coast? Headshaker Charters are designed to be flexible and responsive, and always have your enjoyment in mind.

Kids are Always Welcome on Headshaker Fishing Carters

Did you bring your kids on your fishing excursion? If so, Headshaker knows that showing your kids a good time is the focus. Experienced, mature anglers know that sometimes the fish are biting, and sometimes they aren’t. But when children are on board, a catch is mandatory, or you will see some long faces. Rest assured that Capt. Leland is on the case. Whatever adjustments he must make to put a fish on that child’s hook, he will do it. Also, the younger the kids, the less patience they will have for the fishing experience, especially in the hot sun. Capt. Leland is the father of a two young boys and daughter, so he knows how to keep kids occupied and entertained, which also provides a more relaxing fishing experience for dad and mom.

If you are catch-and-release angler, we will snap the photos for you. If you’re fishing for dinner, we will store your catch in our coolers and then clean, fillet and bag your fish back at the dock. Headshaker Charters strictly adheres to all Fish and Game regulations.
