Captain Rod was top notch in every way. His knowledge of the area was great - we went out with him in Oriental, NC and then met up with him in Georgetown, SC also. Great experience each time. Such a pleasant person, great boat, great gear and he knows where the fish are!! Great Guide!!

Work sent me to South Carolina in early August on a weeks notice. I took my wife, three boys 8,7, and 5 y/o. Captain was very accommodating and worked us into his schedule. He also helped me find lodging in the area. Due to the chance of bad weather, Captain made a last minute switch in boat ramps to ensure... More

Our trip included myself, my wife and two little ones, ages 4 and 2. Captain Ponytail did a great job making it an enjoyable adventure for everyone! We went from catching seabass, croaker, and whiting to using them for baitfish and getting into some serious sharks! He was friendly, patient, and easy to talk to! Lots of great stories! Hope...

Captain Ponytail went out of his way to accommodate me and my 11 year old daughter. We had a great time, and he worked very hard at finding fish for both of us to catch even though the red drum did not cooperate. It was a great experience, and we will be calling back when we are in the area... More

My first time saltwater fishing. Great guide and we sure caught the fish. I highly recommend Captain Ponytail for your fishing trip. He was very knowledgeable of the waters and took us right to where the fish were.

We had an amazing time Red Fishing with Captain Rod! He did a wonderful job helping our seven year old land his first Red Fish. We would highly recommend anyone to go on this trip. A great memory made for our family!

We have fished with Captain Ponytail for Stripers on the Roanoke and reds in Georgetown, SC. We ALWAYS catch fish, and have a great time. Sometimes we fish half a day, others a full one and are never at a loss for words on how great this guide is. He enjoys himself most helping the novice learn how to fish... More
