Welcome to Lighter Breeze Charters with Captain Hunter Allen. I have been fishing the waters of South Carolina for 15 years and am familiar with the majority of our state’s estuaries and coastline. I consider the whole area from Georgetown to Hilton Head my comfort zone, and I call Mt Pleasant home. My love of Charleston inshore fishing began when I was in just middle school after a trip to the Florida Keys. I soon began learning the local waters with several of the original Charleston fishing guides. Armed with some beginning knowledge of the area and fish, I dug in and put in the time fishing and learning the waters at every given opportunity during high school and college. After graduating from Wofford College in Spartanburg, SC, I entered the corporate workforce while holding several different positions in Finance and Real Estate, yet still fishing as much as any job would allow. Eventually, the yearning to work in the salt air was overpowering, I knew I had to become a Charleston Fishing Guide.
When it comes to picking a Charleston fishing guide, there are no shortage of choices as the many electronic tools at our disposal have drastically shortened the learning curve. There is no substitute for a fishing guide that has many years of actual experience in the local waters. Boating safety, fun and fishing catching are of utmost importance in that order!
Whether you are a tournament level fly angler or a family with kids wanting rod bending action, I take pride in providing calm, informative and entertaining trips in search of plentiful Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Tarpon, or other assorted game fish. Join me, Captain Hunter Allen for a fun filled and action packed charter! I look forward to being your Charleston Fishing Guide.
