Fishing with Cap'n Jimmy was the best! We caught more fish than we could count. He even cleaned & filleted our fish for us. We served whiting for dinner for 9 people. Cap'n Jimmy was very knowledgable about the area & the fish. He was especially great with our 8 year old who caught a huge shark within 5 minutes... More

Captain Jimmy went out of his way to make sure we had a great time. We heard from some locals that he was the best on the island and he totally lived up to his reputation. We caught enough whiting and trout to have a dinner for 14 and we even got to wrestle in a couple sharks and a... More

My granddaughter and I were taken on a fishing expedition with Cap'n Jimmy. What a great time was had by all. Of course, my granddaughter won the contests; First Fish, Most Fish, and Biggest Fish. We caught enough to fish to have two meals for four people. And there's nothing like having fresh fish you caught yourself. Jimmy's Mako and... More

On several visits to Edisto Island, I have chartered with Captain Jimmy. Even though our visits were on the off season for fishing, he put us on some fish and helped us organize other outdoor events. He was very knowledgeable about the history and the geography of the area. I count him my friend. Another great part of connecting with... More
