Charter Fishing in the Lowcountry

Spending a day on the water with Captain Fuzzy Davis

Spending the day on the water in the South Carolina Lowcountry is always a good idea. Booking a charter fishing trip with Hilton Head’s nationally acclaimed Silva Dolla Fishing Charters with Fuzzy Davis is brilliant! Davis has been fishing the waters around Hilton Head for over 40 years.

He has been featured in magazines and television shows. Not to brag, but he has held the SC State Tarpon Record since 1986, and Saltwater Sportsman Magazine ranked him in the “Top 50 Boat Captains in the US”.

Davis’ skill on the water and great personality make him a favorite for locals and tourists alike. He’s the boat captain my family calls on for a day of fishing.

The day begins bright and early at the Boathouse dock. Davis is ready and waiting. His boat is loaded with ice, bait, tackle, fishing license, bottled water and all the fishing trivia you can handle.

After loading up, you will head off in pursuit of fish in the saltwater creeks, rivers, sounds or offshore. Inshore excursions focus on redfish and sea trout. Nearshore trips target Tarpon, shark, redfish, trout, and cobia.

The first catch of the day is always exciting. Per dad’s request, the group started fishing for sharks. It didn’t take long to start pulling in some beauties. This bonnethead shark put up quite the fight before being hauled on board. Bonnetheads live in subtropical waters from North Carolina to the Caribbean. They typically grow between two and five feet long.

Reeling in a shark is exhilarating.

The proud catch.

The last catch of the day brought out the competition in the girls. They came out even though because one redfish weighs more while the other is longer.

After four hours of reeling in sharks, stingrays, and redfish, the fishing party was amply satisfied and exhausted. Great memories were made, and bonds were strengthened. The next morning plans were made for the next fishing excursion with Fuzzy.
