Welcome to Tight Line Charters; locally owned and operated by Captain Jesse Riddle. Captain Jesse is a USCG certified, licensed, and insured captain who has been fishing the Charleston and Mount Pleasant waters for more than 25 years. He is an avid angler in shallow and deep water, offers a variety of trip packages, and will take you to where the fish are biting.

Families or groups of 4 will fish with Captain Jesse aboard his one-of-a-kind, brand new 26’ Sportsman 227 Platinum Edition boat. This vessel is a top-tier fishing boat made with yacht caliber features and is equipped with SIMRAD electronics and powerful Yamaha engine. A fiberglass hardtop t-top provides shade for passengers, we have plenty of seating, and safety equipment is regularly updated. Your trip with Tight Line Charters will be comfortable, fun, and safe!

Captain Jesse only uses PENN products for rods/reels and tackle. The use of top quality equipment is included in the cost of your trip, as well as fuel for the boat, your fishing license, the use of an ice cooler, bottled water, and cleaning your catch at the end of your trip. Captain Jesse will instruct you how to work a rod, even if you are a novice fisherman/woman. PENN spinning and trolling tackle is provided onboard, as well as light and heavy tackle. Feel free to ask Captain Jesse if you have any questions about any of the fishing equipment.

When packing for your Charleston fishing trip, be sure to bring sunscreen and a hat (please no spray sunscreen). Wear soft-soled shoes (such as white tennis shoes or deck shoes) and don’t forget to bring your camera. We’ll get to see many of the Charleston historic sites from sea, as well as the beauty of the outdoors, and you won’t want to miss this unique opportunity to capture these sights.

Come get hooked with Tight Line Charters. We’ll be fishing for a variety of inshore and offshore species. Inshore species highly sought after include Redfish, Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, Black Seabass, and more. The Cast and Blast trip package gives your group 3 hours of fishing and 1 hour of skeet shooting. This unique trip is all-inclusive with shotgun, skeet shells and thrower included. Night fishing trips for Bull Reds and Sharks starts just after sundown and we’ll visit the Charleston harbor and jetties. Captain Jesse invites you to enjoy some exciting South Carolina adventures with Tight Line Charters!
