Eric Sullivan owes his seamanship and fishing skills to his 21-year stint in the Coast Guard. In his free time, he would fish the waters of wherever his job landed him, whether it was the Bering Sea, the Atlantic coast, or Mars’s one puddle. Nowadays, most of his fishing takes place along the inlets and marshes of South Carolina’s Low Country as the owner of his own fishing-charter company, Triple Hook Fishing. Aboard his 22-foot bay boat, the US Coast Guard–licensed captain motors passengers on fishing trips to waters that are rich with redfish, trout, flounder, and seasonal fish such as sharks and king mackerel. Through these trips, Eric is able to share his passion for fishing with others, and help families create the type of lasting memories he has created with his own wife and kids.

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.
