Finally a real Charter Fishing Captain in Pawleys Island!
Thank you, Capt. Rob!
Great experience with Inshore Extreme Fishing Charters. Next time I come to Myrtle Beach I will be going fishing with them. Thanks Capt. Rob!
We did a fishing charter with Capt. Rob and it was GREAT! Highly recommend it.
As stated in our review of our Jan 2013 trip" WE CAME BACK" to Rob and Extreme Charters. Nina (my great wife) more than once told me it is so beautiful out here. Then she commenced to out fished me again. Saw several dolphins together taking advantage of the fishing.. Sum it up we have fish in the frying pan and freezer. Again boat and equipment of high quality and very clean. Rob,, super nice and works to hard to make a day one to remember. In 2 weeks we are going back for our 3rd trip this year. Anyone reading this should experience a great day of fishing with Rob Of Inshore Extreme Fishing Charters.
Last week I was on vacation from the UK staying in a timeshare we had traded to Myrtle Beach. I wanted to go fishing while we were out there and found Inshore Extreme Fishing Captain Rob online before we flew out. I met him at the dock at 7am where he was ready to go. Although it was a little bit of a drive (20 minutes) to get to his meeting spot it was well worth the early morning. We went out and cleaned up with about 15 fish over the half day charter. Thanks Rob for the great memories!
