Fish First step is owned and operated by Captain Chico Neyrey. Captain Neyrey is a South Carolina native and has over 35 years in the fishing industry as a mate, a captain and a guide. Having worked from Martha’s Vineyard to the Florida Keys, the Caribbean, Central America and Mexico his knowledge is extensive in all aspects of inshore and offshore fishing. His knowledge of local waters is unsurpassed.
First Step presents itself as a professional, informative and pleasantly memorable experience. We hire (on an as needed basis for multi-boat trips) the most professional and highest regarded guides in our area in order to make your trip enjoyable, safe and productive.
We are in Charleston, South Carolina and fish backwater for species such as Redfish, Black drum. Trout, Flounder, Bonnethead Sharks and Tarpon among quite a few other species. Or, you may prefer our nearshore and reef fishing for bigger game such as the Black-Tipped Shark, Tarpon, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel or reef species such as Sheepshead, Spadefish, Black Sea Bass, Weakfish, Red Drum,and Black Drum.
If fishing is not your forte’ you may want a Dolphin watching tour, or a tour up into the ACE Basin for the Alligators and other abundant wildlife. We’ll even customize your trip to include several different activities. Even shuttle you to a nice shell beach for shell collecting. How about crabbing?
This pristine environment makes inshore fishing spectacular year round. Our guests can expect to tangle with Red Drum, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Ladyfish and Bluefish. With the abundance of nearshore reefs, larger species such as Sharks, Tarpon, Cobia and Mackerel can be targeted.
