Captain Garrett Lacy
“I am Captain Garrett Lacy, your USCG licensed and Insured Captain. I have fished these local waters since I was a child, obtaining lifelong skills that shaped and enhanced the way I fish.”
From birth, I was either in the woods or on the water! Throughout high school, I led and promoted a group of fisherman and outdoorsmen that enjoyed our environment and gave back to the community. I lead several projects such as fishing sampling and fishing clinics with disabled children. At that point, I knew this was what I was meant to do. Shortly after, I founded Charleston Fishing Adventures. While a hobby quickly turned into a job, nothing makes me happier than introducing people and making memories doing one of the things I love the most.
I am a member of the Coastal Conservation Association and a participant in the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources Fish Tagging Program. Throughout my schooling, I also competed, led, and organized numerous fishing tournaments. Starting with fishing the Southern Kingfish Association’s Tournaments, I then began to compete in the Lowcountry Redfish Cup and now Southern Redfish Cup Circuits. I still strive to compete in them today – that is if I don’t have a client on board. I have also been featured in several editions of the South Carolina Sportsman.
I am a dedicated fishing guide, and I spend most of my free time on the water trying to continuously improve my knowledge of fishing and its changing patterns. I am First Aid and CPR Certified and run the finest and safest boat available. With all of that being said, my primary goal is to provide my clients with a safe and memorable experience on the water. If fishing has taught me anything it’s been humility and professionalism, both of which never leave our boat. The Truth is I love what I do, and I could only hope to share it with every one of you.
“My 11-year-old son and I went out with Captain Garrett Lacy for a half-day of inshore fishing. Garrett is a great guide. He put us right on the fish and was great with my son. We caught a whole bunch of trout, bluefish and a 4ft bonnethead shark. We will be back to fish with Garrett again.”
“I have booked a lot of charters, both inshore and off. I have never had more fun than I did with Captain Garrett Lacy. Garrett is an up-and-comer. He is a young captain but has more local knowledge, energy, and enthusiasm than any other captain that I have fished with. Captain Lacy kept us on the fish all day! Look no further for another charter, you won’t be disappointed! I can’t wait to book my next one with him.”
“I booked two days with Garrett. First fishing day Garrett put me on schools of redfish in the shallows being pressed by dolphins. We were able to move around and catch fish. The second day was awesome. He was well-tuned to the areas to fish and at what times based on tidal changes. We caught 20 fish several ten pounders several six to eight pounders and Garrett tagged 13 of the fish for the fishery sustainability. His knowledge of the area was impressive. He was generous with his time and interested in passing on his knowledge of fishing of the Charleston intercoastal waterways.”
“Just got off the water with Captain Garrett and couldn’t be happier with the morning fishing excursion! Aside from being a personable and knowledgeable guide, he was able to put us on the Reds right out of the gate! Low tide, high tide, no tide, Garrett will find the fish!”
