The call of the wild is like a call from an elderly grandparent: though you can’t quite make out what’s being said, you feel better about yourself when you answer. Pick up nature’s phone with today’s Groupon: for $225, you get a half-day fishing charter for up to four from Ambush Inshore Charters (a $450 value). The charter includes:
- A half day of fishing
- Tackle and bait
- Drinks for four<p>
Perched atop a 19-foot Scout Costa flats boat, Captain Johnny and his crew of up to four fishermen set off into the Wando River to bob on the open waters and snag scaled swimmers. Captain Johnny corrals his 15 years of captaining experience to entertain shipmates as they grip provided rods and reels to attract aquatic feasts. Bait primarily seduces redfish, trout, and sheepshead as the Lowcountry angler shows off expert line flips and how to attract fish by imitating their characteristic warble.
Ambush Inshore Charters
For more than 30 years, Johnny Spitzmiller has been hunting the secretive and quick-flippered fish of South Carolina’s waters. At Ambush Inshore Charters, Captain Johnny imparts his aquatic acumen during full- and half-day charter trips on a 19-foot Scout Costa flats boat. The vessel prowls up the waters of the Wando River as guests soak up rays and suss out a strike from the redfish, trout, and sheepshead swimming by underneath. Captain Johnny also leads oyster- and clam-harvesting expeditions, and is always quick to offer advice on the finer points of casting or finders-keepers laws as they apply to gold doubloons.
