ATP Gun Shop & Range's two climate-controlled galleries host recreational, sport, and instructional shooting for marksmen of all experience levels. Accommodating a wide range of clients, instructors lead NRA-sanctioned courses and host ladies’ nights. At the pro shop, an onsite gunsmith repairs firearms.
The custom-built Gause Built 26 is an all-water fishing boat, designed to shuttle anglers from foot-deep water to offshore pods of dolphins. Owner and captain Chuck Griffin designed his boat to cater to the varied needs of the fishing community, outfitting it with a tower to spot schools in the distance and allow guests better views. He commands his boat armed with more than 25 years of experience, and he assists guests in snagging an array of fishy specimen such as inshore seatrout, nearshore barracudas, and offshore king mackerel. When not angling or fly-fishing, Captain Chuck glides with guests to the open water in pursuit of frolicking pods of dolphins that may or may not know the secret to holding your breath for a really long time.
The water starts to darken along a stretch of marsh grasses, just before its surface is slashed apart by the fins of hungry redfish. The redfish trap schools of mullet into a tight corral—and then go into a feeding frenzy. South Carolina fishermen love this scenario. The owners of The Charleston Angler love it, too, which is why they founded their shop back in 2000. The shop's crew of seasoned anglers supply fly, inshore, and offshore fishermen with tackle specific to South Carolina's waters, from the coastal flats that draw trophy tarpon to the inland lakes filled with blue catfish. Along with advising customers on gear from brands such as Shimano, Penn, and St. Croix, the shop hosts classes and seminars. These sessions can cover topics as broad as Orvis fly-fishing, or as specific as catching bass in the cypress-strewn swamps of Francis Marion National Forest.
Beyond tackle and apparel—some of which comes from their own "Redfish" line of t-shirts, trucker hats, ball caps, visors, and jackets—The Charleston Angler offers fly-fishing and light-tackle charters and runs an in-house embroidery boutique. The staff also posts tips, insights, fish haikus, and fishing reports on its Reel Blog and encourages customers to share their fish stories.
