There’s nothing like the calm of the ocean, consuming the quietness that surrounds you, just as a strong pull comes from the end of your fishing rod. One so strong that you realize instantly there won’t be any room for exaggerating on such a large catch. One your friends will immediately believe is fabricated until they see proof.
Captain Kevin “Stump” Grant with Pawley’s Island Guide Service is far too familiar with enthusiastic expressions of passengers as they reel in “the big one”. Stump is a South Carolina native with a lifetime of experience hunting, fishing, and exploring the beautiful inland and coastal natural areas of the state. His guided Eco-tours explore the beautiful Hammock Coast including Myrtle Beach, Pawleys Island, Murrells Inlet, McClellanville, Georgetown, and everywhere in-between.
These waters make the perfect back drop for an afternoon with family and friends in search of local birds, reptiles, and other fauna. After sightseeing, the tour leads to a local’s favorite lunch spot, T W Graham & Co in McClellanville for fresh baby clams, or Hopsewee Plantation on the bank of North Santee River for tea and dessert. Stump’s fishing charters cruise backwaters and saltwater estuaries in pursuit of red sh, trout, ounder, tarpon, red drum, black drum, sheepshead, and other inshore species.
Saltwater estuaries south of Pawleys Island offer some of the most pristine abundance of wildlife and natural beauty with over 30 miles of uninhabited shoreline where anglers can expect to see all that Mother Nature offers. Beginners and experts alike can appreciate the near-shore custom charters to sh your favorite catch. Half and full day charters are available with all rods, bait, tackle, and licenses included! Charters are kid friendly making it a perfect outing for the family. In addition to Eco-tours and fishing charters, Stump is an expert guide for open-water and inland hunting for waterfowl, deer, dove, and more.
His hunting companion, a French Brittany named Eula, is known as the real expert as she points and retrieves quail, woodcock, and ducks. Stump and Eula also enjoy personalized hunting trips on properties belonging to their customers where they provide the decoys, calls, and other supplies. Together the pair have the experience to take you on the most successful hunt. Whether you find yourself wanting to set ashore this summer or trek through the wetlands, Pawley’s Island Guide Service offers the all inclusive package to get you there. Be sure to have sunscreen in tow along with a great sense of adventure. When Stump and Eula are on the hunt, the odds of a satisfying adventure are inevitable!
