“Had an awesome day of fishing with Capt. Tim today! Fish made us work a little bit, but we got on 'em and were hooking up every cast. I think we wore out our 13 year-old anchor puller! Kept a couple nice reds for dinner, but put a pile of keepers back to fight another day. If you are coming to Beaufort and want a guide who knows how to have a fun day fishing and finds fish, Capt. Tim is your man. Tight lines all!”

“We had an excellent morning on the water with captain Kevin. All of the staff at cast away fishing were professional and accommodating. They called the day before to confirm plans and even picked us up right across the street from where we were staying. Great lunch, conversation and hospitality. Can’t recommend them enough, we’ll be back soon! 10/10”

“Cast Away Charters should be at the top of everyone’s itinerary! Amazing customer service makes you feel like family! Captain Tim Deckard and his team of Captains will put you on fish in minutes and give you a trip you won’t forget! Captain and the young guns have been fishing the Beaufort area waters for many years and their experience shines through! It took me a few years to book with them, but I’ve stopped looking anywhere else!”

“Started a dawn. 20 inch trout on first cast. Great equipment. Captain Tim very knowledgeable of tides and techniques needed to make fishing in the Low Country a success. He taught our group a lot and I felt like I had known him for years. Made us feel very welcomed and comfortable. We caught trout and reds. I’ll be a repeat customer.”

“I recently booked two charters with Captain Tim of Cast Away Fishing Charters. On our first trip Captain took me to an awesome fishing spot. Within a few minutes of the first cast…..FISH ON!! We caught some huge reds, and the second one we hooked up with turned out to be my PB red!! The second trip was another fun day on the water. We caught multiple fish, including more redfish, and I wound up getting a nice keeper Flounder to put the cherry on top of the trip! I highly recommend Cast Away if you are looking for a great day of fishing in the lowcountry! Thanks for 2 awesome days on the water, Captain Tim!”

“We enjoyed our trip with Captain Tim today. Very informative…learned some new techniques, rigging and knots. Caught lots of redfish and trout as well. We started a little early, and even stayed a bit later than scheduled. Thanks for all of your work!”

“Took my family out with Capt Tommy while vacationing on Fripp.Had a great trip under challenging fishing conditions. Tommy worked several locations to make sure we had action the entire trip, even during slack tide! Caught a wide variety including flounder, reds, black drumm, and black bass. My 27 year old daughter caught the largest fish of her life, a 30” red, beautiful fish! Unfortunately she drop it over the side before we could get a photo!! Tommy was very polite and engaging. He took time during the day to get to know each person on the boat! Definitely using Cast Away next time in Beaufort!”

“We fished two half days with Captain Kevin & had a great time! He is a super knowledgeable & outgoing guide. This area is an amazing ecosystem with a lot to offer. We caught eight different species of fish! Mrs. Capt. Tim gives excellent customer service! She is quick to respond to questions, & she even greeted us at the Fishcamp on 11th street to arrange for our fresh catch to be prepared for lunch.”
