Captain shay seigel

Capt. Shay was raised in the low country and has been a fishermen since his childhood. He knows these waters well and is prepared to cater to your expectations, whether you ask him to take you inshore, nearshore, or as far as 20 miles offshore.

Capt. Shay operates a 22’ Pro Sports Catamaran powered by twin 140 HP Suzuki four stroke gas motors. This vessel’s design provides a stable ride along the waves, while the gas motors ensure that you won’t get sick from inhaling diesel fumes. There is room for six passengers on board, but the boat is most comfortable with four passengers when heading offshore.

Fishing inshore gives you a chance to target Redfish, Trout, Black Drum, and Flounder, while venturing a little farther out allows you to add some great bottom fishing to the mix. On the other hand, there’s plenty of big trophies to be found offshore, including Mahi Mahi and Sailfish. Depending on where you choose to fish and your target species, Capt. Shay will help you try your hand at trolling, bottom fishing, topwater fishing, jigging, and more.

Testimonials

Hands down best part of our stay at Hilton Head. First Family vacation and only “extra” activity we did. Anglers in our hometown we were excited to go fishing before we left. We did a 3 hour trip with 2 eager 12 year old boys an 8 year old girl myself and husband. Captain Shay was very patient very knowledgeable and even knew a couple dolphins that set the trip over the top for all of us. We caught sharks mostly we weren’t out there to catch monsters but if we did Captain Shay would have known exactly where to go! Would reccomend for anyone wanting a private and personalized experience!!!

Fun and accommodating. Our family had a really good time.

A friend and I took 3 of our kids out with the hopes of catching some sharks. Captain Shay put us on a spot that we were pulling in a fish as fast as we could get the lines back in the ocean. With 3 kids 12 and under sometimes it’s hard to keep them all happy but all 3 absolutely loved the trip and said it was their favorite part of our vacation! I highly recommend Captain Shay! Our next trip we will definitely be booking a longer trip!

Half Day Trip with Captain Shay!!!

Captain Shay did a fantastic job helping our three kids on their first fishing trip.  He was friendly, helpful, and went the extra mile to ensure the kids had a great experience.  We did near shore fishing and each kid caught at least four sharks, rays, or fish.  The kids had a blast, highlight of vacation.  Absolutely recommend Captain Shay!  Thank you for a great first fishing experience!!!

Half Day Trip with Captain Shay

Got to the dock at ten minutes prior to our departure time, as he asked. Had us on the boat and ready to leave five minutes before the time we were supposed to depart. Had bait on the boat, but made a quick stop to get fresh. Drove to the spot we were going to fish and, within minutes, we were hauling a catch onto the boat. Captain Shay was great, and we cannot wait to go again.

Half Day Trip 08/11/2019

Captain Shy was a great guy.  He told us that it would be best if we would have much better luck catching shark instead of other fish – we appreciated his honesty so that we did not waste time trying to catch something that was not there.  Things started off slow but you could tell that Shay was working really hard by continually cutting up fish and throwing the chum out of the boat to attract more shark to our area.  We eventually did very well catching multiple sharks and skates.  Great time!!
