About Tail Tamers

Welcome To Tail Tamer Fishing!

Like many local residents, Captain Terry came to Hilton Head Island on vacation and never left! Originally from Kentucky, Captain Terry has become a Island fixture in the area and has an extensive knowledge of the local waters. We bring our intimate knowledge on every fishing trip and promise an amazing experience.

Excellent trip! We had the best time! Captain Terry was fun and delivered on his promise for a great afternoon of fishing!

Where Are We Located?
Broad Creek Marina

We call Hilton Head Island home and when not out catching fish, you can find our boat docked at Broad Creek Marina. Located in the very heart of this premier resort destination off the coast of South Carolina, Broad Creek Marina is in a peaceful setting surrounded by natural beauty and convenient to the Atlantic Ocean via the Broad Creek waterway.

In most cases, yes! We fish every day, we’re aware of where the fish are. On half days, we typically stay near port. This means riding time will be between 30 and 45 minutes, depending on how far we go. Most half days will have many hours of fishing time available.
