About Us

Looking for an exciting, family-friendly day out on board a charter that has a high percentage of fish catching and a fluffy, four-legged first mate? Come on down to Hilton Head Island and climb aboard Black Dog Fishing Charters for the adventure of a lifetime!

Captain Jon Everetts is the man behind the helm of the “Black Dog,” a 28’ Master Marine center console that’s named after his trusty labradoodle, Trey. Both Capt. Jon and Trey have a shared love of fishing and being out on the water. Together, this dynamic duo provides a variety of angling adventures that are suitable for guests of all ages and skill levels.

If you’re a brand new angler or are traveling with little ones, Capt. Jon runs a range of short, exciting trips that’ll introduce you to these waters. He’ll also happily show you the ropes and get you set up with your gear. Capt. Jon’s newbie-friendly adventures aren’t boring, either – he’ll have you battling the most notorious species of all, the Shark! With his guidance, even children can try to land one of these beasts.

If you’re a more experienced angler, Capt. Jon recommends joining him for a longer trip, where you’ll get the chance to head further out onto the Atlantic to target tasty table fare and hard-fighting game fish. Bottom fish seriously deep waters for Grouper, Snapper, Cobia, huge Bluefin Tuna, and plenty more. You can mix this up with some Shark fishing action, too.

On board Capt. Jon’s vessel, you’ll find top-of-the-line navigational gear, life jackets for all ages, a portable toilet for your comfort, and top-quality rods and reels. Your fishing license will be provided for you and, depending on what you reel in, your captain will also clean and fillet your catch for you.

Best of all, you have the option of being joined by Trey on your trip – if you’d like this furry first mate to come along for the ride, just let your captain know. All that’s left is to come aboard Black Dog Fishing Charters for a truly unforgettable adventure!
