TIGHT LINE CHARTERS
Tight Line Charters is owned and operated by Charleston native Captain Jesse Riddle. Known as one of Charleston’s best fishing charters, we specialize in all-Inclusive inshore and near shore fishing charters, shark fishing as well as scenic harbor cruises.
CAPTAIN JESSE RIDDLE
Captain Jesse Riddle, a USCG certified, licensed, and insured captain who has been fishing the lowcountry for over 25 years.
Captain Jesse knows that the key to catching fish depends on the tide movement and bait and tackle selection. With his combined knowledge and experience of the area he is able to take you to the best and most productive grounds Charleston has to offer.
Captain Jesse offers a complimentary fish cleaning and filleting service so that you could take your catch home and have it served up at one of the local restaurants after your trip!
The fishing will take place aboard a one of a kind brand new Sportsman 227 Platinum Edition boat. This ice blue beauty is a top tier boat made with yacht caliber features and comes with the best updated SIMRAD electronics with the best performance from YAMAHA which gives a smooth and clean ride. It features ample storage and can go from a fishing machine to a family friendly cruising boat with the flip of a seat. She has a fiberglass hardtop t-top for ample shade with misters to keep you cool for those hot days and a deep-V bottom that cuts the chop and keeps you dry. We also only use PENN products and gear from our reels to our rods to get the best fight out of the fish and so we know we will land the fish nice and smooth.
We will provide you with all fishing gear necessary to reel in and land the big guys! This includes allPenn rod/reel combos, bait, tackle and a fishing license for each angler. Captain Jesse will show you how to work a rod even if you are a novice angler. Penn spinning and trolling tackle is provided on board, as well as light and heavy tackle
WHAT TO BRING
You should bring sunscreen and a hat, and be ready for some fun on the water. Please no spray sunscreen, as it makes the deck slippery and dangerous and also stains the fiberglass.
Wear soft-soled shoes with light colored soles. White-soled tennis shoes are great. Black soles or leather soles are not welcome; they will leave hard-to-clean marks on the boat. Some brands of dark shoes will not leave marks on white decks.
Don’t forget to bring your camera! While out on your trip you will see many of the historic sites and natural beauty of the Charleston Harbor.
