Captain Garrett Lacy

“I am Captain Garrett Lacy, your 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 my childhood, I led and promoted a several projects such as, fish sampling, environmental volunteer work, and running fishing clinics with disabled children. That is when I knew this was what I was meant to do. Shortly after that discovery, 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 an avid Conservationist and Sportsman. As one I promote a clean, healthy, and sustainable fisherie. When not on the water I advocate for the South Carolina Coastal Fishing Guide Association. As Vice President, I strive to protect the fisheries, as well as advocate for both professional guides and recreational anglers. Furthermore, I assist sales at Palmetto Boat Sales, promoting the finest boat brands available.

I also am a very competitive tournament fisherman and have been very blessed in my endeavors! I love to compete in several tournament series such as the Southern Redfish Cup, Powerpole Redfish Circuit, Professional Redfish League, and Redfish World Series. I plan to compete in every one available, that is if I don’t have a client on board.

I am First Aid and CPR Certified and run the finest and safest boats 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. I love what I do, and I could only hope to share it with every one of you.

Charleston Fishing


“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!”
