"Highlight of our trip to Hilton Head 5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2016
Right from the beginning, we could tell that choosing Capt Jim and the Stray Cat was a great choice for us! Jim is very, very friendly and helpful...even meeting us the day before to answer any questions and give us some tips. He also wanted to be sure that our expectations and what he knew could be done this time of year were in sync so that we would not be disappointed. Smart! The trip was a cold one (what do you expect for the middle of January?!) but he had lots of extra clothing for us and the waves were minimal. We got out to an offshore reef where he knew the fish we wanted were biting and sure enough. Right off the bat all four of us were hit with BIG Bull Red's!! What a great way to start...so EXCITING! Of course, you cannot keep them when they are that big so after some pictures, back they went. After that, we caught tons of Black Sea Bass and Porgi's...I even caught a Grunt. We kept the biggest of the Bass and Porgi's and probably released another 50+ fish!
Jim and his first mate were constantly busy between baiting our hooks (squid chunks) and taking fish off the lines. To his credit, as soon as we went about 5 minutes without any bites, they pulled anchor and moved to a diff spot where they immediately started hitting again. Jim and his mate were great and super friendly at the same time. One of our group got a bit queasy when the waves started to grow and they were very attentive and helpful. When we got back to shore, they carefully fillet'd all the fish (a few of which were cooked up that night...YUM!...loved the bass!!)
All in all, we could not have asked for a better experience (unless it was for mother nature to give us warmer weather LOL!). I STRONGLY recommend Capt Jim and the Stray Cat Charters for a GREAT experience! Don't be afraid if you've never done this before...they will take great care of you! We will definitely go fishing with him again next time we are in HHI!!
All Three Trips Were Amazing! Cody Tarpon Slayer Thanks Capt. Jimmy!”

I've gone out with Captain Jim 2 years in a row now. Both times were an absolute pleasure. Jim is a knowledgeable Captain and great with children too. We have caught plenty both trips and capped off this last year with a trophy fish. We started the day off catching a 6.5 ft Tarpon. Unbelievable!! Don't look further book Stray Cat!
Lots of fish and good company!”

My family and I went out for a 4 hour trip with Captain Jim and his first mate, Tim. My family is not very experienced fishing but Captain Jim was excellent in teaching us and very patient as we got the hang of it. We had a ton of bites and caught bonnethead sharks, black tip sharks, two oyster toad fish and a stingray. We saw a few dolphins while heading out to fish and Captain Jim took us to a spot after fishing where we saw many more dolphins. It was a great day on the water with Captain Jim and Tim. Upon return, Captain Jim filleted one of the sharks so The Skull Creek Boathouse could cook it for us. It was delicious and an added bonus after a very fun day!
“A great time with Captain Jim & our kids!”

After I researched fishing charters for HHI, I chose Captain Jim of Stray Cat Charters because of prior reviews, and I can honestly say, I made the right choice! Jim had us on the fish as we caught 7 & 8 foot bull sharks, 20 & 40 lb cobia, red snapper, grouper, black sea bass, etc. My kids (19&15) had a great adventure for their first deep sea fishing trip. Thank you very much Captain Jim & First Mate Tim!!
“Best trip ever...hands down!”

I have got to say that if you are looking for one of the best times on a charter boat, Jim Clark will make that happen. Not only is he a GREAT fishermen but he will give you an experience that you will never forget.
“Best Sharking Trip w/ Captain Jim”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2015
My family and I have been going to HHI for 20+ years and have done many fishing charters in the area. Stray Cat Charters has been hands down the best experience we have ever had. We had 6 people in our group for a 3 hour, evening sharking trip. Due to weather in the area, Captain Jim stayed in touch with us throughout the day to make sure we avoided weather and also caught the tides right. When we arrived everything was ready to go; coolers packed, bait caught, and First Mate Tim met us at the dock. As fishing luck goes we didn't have much on the day, but Captain Jim ensured that we caught something and made the best of our chances. We moved several different spots and we could tell that Jim and Tim were doing absolutely everything they could to make us successful (something other charters have not made me feel in the past). In the end we caught 3 sharks of decent size and everyone had a blast swapping stories and telling jokes, not to mention the sunset we watched while at sea. Both Captain Jim and First Mate Tim shared their fishing knowledge with us and were great hosts from start to finish. If you're looking to spend your hard earned money wisely go with Stray Cat Charters, you will not be disappointed. Thank you Jim and Tim
