Captain Tim Deckard

Captain Tim has been a professional angler in the Lowcountry for many years, after fishing for recreation and finding his calling. In 2005 Tim established
Cast Away Fishing Charters and enjoys sharing his passion for this estuary with his clients. Tim really appreciates fishing with the company’s many returning guests, who vacation here yearly, and “catching up” with them and their families. In addition, Tim holds a USCG 50 ton master license and is a highly sought after speaker for lectures and presentations on Lowcountry fishing techniques.

Captain Kevin Mears

Captain Kevin has been fishing the creeks and rivers in and around Beaufort SC his entire life. He learned to throw a cast net his Grandmother made when he was just four years old, and observed his Grandfather selling bait to local fisherman over the years. These experiences provided Kevin with the opportunity to learn the tricks of the trade from a young age. In 2010 he earned his USCG Captain’s License and began chartering professionally. Kevin’s life in the outdoors provides him with a myriad of great stories and lessons he loves to tell. He enjoys taking his time with anglers of all skill levels and gets excited when new or young anglers experience their first catch.

Captain Nations (Nat) Finley

Captain Nat began fishing the Lowcountry waters at a young age, as his father was a lifelong charter boat Captain, teaching him the skills needed to become a successful angler. Because of this early start, by the time Nat turned 18 he had earned enough sea time to attain his Captains license, and has excelled at running professional charters since. Nat enjoys passing on his extensive knowledge to anglers of all skill levels, and he especially loves the joy catching a fish brings to his clients’ faces.

Captain Hunter Griffith

Captain Hunter literally grew up in the reeds and grasses of Murrells Inlet, fishing the flats with his grandparents. As a professional Captain, he has fished the Lowcountry waters for the past ten years, specializing in light tackle and fly fishing. In addition, Hunter is locally known as a one of the county’s top Redfish tournament anglers, with multiple fifth to first place finishes, which is a “reel” accomplishment!
