Tips for Booking a Fishing Charter

One of the most frequent questions posed to Lowcountry Outdoors is how to book a fishing charter? There are plenty of reasons why to book a fishing charter, but just WHO does a good job as a professional charter captain? I am always glad to make a recommendation for a charter captain once I learn of the person's desired fishing location and targeted species.  This feature article is intended to share some guidelines for others, about what to look for when booking a fishing charter. Also, what to expect on that trip and what can be expected of each party. In general, recreational anglers who fish with a guide will get a big bang for their buck, in terms of fishing success. But there is never a guarantee with fish! I know from working with many of them, that fishing guides keep long hours and aren't scared of hard work, and for that they have my respect.
