A Tried and True Hilton Head Charter Fishing Guide

Captain Richard Pollitzer, a low-country native, began charter fishing as a mate at 15 years old and has remained in the charter fishing business in the Hilton Head and Beaufort area ever since.  After over 25 years of helping people catch fish, you can rest assured your chances of having a memorable deep sea fishing experience will be amongst the best if he guides your inshore, near-shore, or offshore sport fishing trip Tallboy (his boat – a legendary 31 Ocean Master Sport Fish) has everything you would expect from the best of the North End Charter Fleet and provides plenty of shade, an amazing 360 degree view, a quiet, smooth ride, and a private bathroom for your comfort. 

Most trips are done in the calm waters of Port Royal Sound or within a few miles of shore where there is little worry of motion sickness, and there are plenty of fish (especially sharks )in these in-shore areas.  Most visitors choose a 4-6 hour fishing charter in which a variety of fish are targeted depending on the season and weather conditions.  These charters generally leave at 8AM for morning charters, or between 12PM and 2PM for afternoon trips.  The great thing about the fishing around Hilton Head is that every season brings a new fish to chase.  For anglers of all experience levels, you can hope to catch Cobia, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Tarpon, Snapper, Grouper, and Redfish and all kinds of sharks on 4 to 10 hour charters.  See our “What’s Biting” page for information on what fish might be available at the time of your charter.

Richard or his mate cleans it for you.  Now that’s fresh fish!
