Captain Richard and Mate Paul were awesome guides for the 4 of us as we took our sons offshore fishing last week. Within minutes of tossing lines we were hooked onto fish. They suggested a great combination of fishing for "dinner" and fishing for the bigger bites, e.g. sharks, which the kids were more fascinated with. I would definitely recommend... More

We decided after arriving in Hilton Head to do a fishing charter. I suggest you book in advance to avoid our challenges. Many are booked up in advance. We were fortunate that Tallboy had a cancellation and was able to take us out for a four hour charter on about 24 hours notice. Captain Rich and Paul were very accommodating... More

A great morning of family fishing - Blues, Spanish Mackerel, and Black Tip sharks. This was our first charter experience for our family of six. It was superb. Captain Richard and Mate Paul were eager to assure each of our kids (age 11-17) had a chance to land both Blues and a shark. The easy-going, yet attentive, nature of Richard... More

Captain Richard and crew are great at what they do. It was a very short ride to wear we fished and we were almost immediately hooking up. The trip was tailored for my 16 year old son and 12 year old daughter. Capt. Is pleasant to talk to and he understands kids. There are a couple restaurants on the dock... More

This will be the 4th or 5th charter with tallboy. My teenage children and I look toward to our fishing with tallboy as much as our entire trip to Hilton head. Over the past 21 years traveling to HHI we have been on several other charters but captain Richard is by far the best. Great at getting you on fish... More

Best fishing ever in all the years we've been coming to HHI. We caught a Lemon shark, Nurse shark, Bonnet shark, Black nose shark, a Black-tip shark, Spanish Mackerel and a slew of Blue Fish which we had for dinner -- enough Bluefish to feed 7 adults plus leftovers. All the sharks were quite large, especially the monster Lemon. Captain... More

We've been coming to Hilton Head for 10 years and this was by far the most memorable thing we've done. We went shark fishing with my boys ages 12-22 and they will remember it the rest of their lives. Capt. Pollitzer was great the entire trip and just plain fun to hang out with! No doubt we will be doing... More

Richard gave us a great experience. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to friends and family. Took us out a ways to snag our lunch and some bait. Then spent more than half of our time pulling in good-sized sharks. Lots of fun and I'll plan on going out with Tallboy next time we're here.

Two friends and I caught 4 large Cobia, almost brought in a Mahi Mahi and had a great time. The neat thing is - we are 3 women ages 70-78!!!!! And yes, WE brought them in!
