    Capt Matt was absolutely great to work with. He was considerate about rescheduling when weather looked poor. He was prompt with his communication. My kids had an absolute blast! They didn't all get a fish, but they all had a great time. We will definitely go again. I can't recommend his charter enough!

    Strongly recommend Simon Says Charters for your next fishing trip. Aside from catching over 10 sharks in less than three hours, Matt was extremely knowledgable on the area and gave a lot of insight on fishing while on the water. Will definitely use him again when I’m back in Charleston.

    My group and I did a full day of bottom fishing with Captain Matt and his first mate Walker. Extremely professional services rendered from start to finish. He was punctual and had all the right equipment. Both of them were very personable, answering questions, and talking with us throughout the day. He took us to multiple spots, ensuring that we were successful in catching fish. We caught a multitude of sea bass, grouper, amberjack, and triggerfish. For the fish that we were able to keep, he cleaned and filleted for us after reaching the dock. I would highly recommend his charter services to anyone!

    Capt. Matt is an incredible guide. He put us on fish immediately and set us up to catch six different species. His local knowledge of inshore fishing spots is top notch and made for an awesome day. His gear is in tip-top shape and he takes care of everything to make sure you have a great day. I will book with Simon Says Charters without hesitation next time I am in Charleston.

    If you want to get on the fish, then this is your guy! Don't go cheap on other charters. We went off-shore and within 45 seconds of the first gear rigged up we were hooked up to our first fish! We fished there and caught AJ, Cobia, etc and then moved to another spot and within about 90 seconds had another fish on the line. The captain and his mate were very knowledgeable, friendly, and quick to help us with broken lines, bait, etc. Equipment and boat were all great. Boat was clean. The captain was on time and friendly couldn't ask for more. We caught around 70 fish in total with about 25 keepers. I will absolutely do it again and won't hesitate to book with Matt again. Had an absolute blast!
