About

charleston sc fishing chartersRisky Business Charters is owned and operated by Captains Ken Cannon and Jim Gabrish. Simply put, we go after THE BIG CATCH every time we leave the dock. Our vessel cruises at a true 25 knots which means that we can get you to where the big fish are, faster – guaranteeing you as much as 2-3 hours more fishing than our competition.

We use ocean surface temperature charts provided by Roffer’s Fishing forecasting service for every fishing charter we schedule. We put our more than 15 years of experience and guides to help take the guesswork out of fishing. This enables us to go directly to areas that should hold fish. Unlike many charter companies, we never head out to the ocean blind or relying on yesterday’s information.

We employ only the best Shimano and Penn equipment available. We maintain all of our equipment and use only the best bait and fishing techniques. We spend extra money on FluoroCarbon leaders, these leaders are invisible underwater. Our equipment is tournament ready all the time. We always use fresh line so the big ones do not get away due to equipment failure.

We also have the best Garmin electronics on the market. These help us find fish and temperature changes throughout the day. Simply put, we simply find it unacceptable not to catch the most fish of any charter fishing operation every single day.

We provide ice, water, bait, fuel, and have a microwave oven to heat up anything desired. We professionally clean all of your catch at the end of the day and bag it up for your trip home.

A true 25 Knot cruising vessel, your party will enjoy 2-3 hours of additional fishing compared to our competition. When you charter a deep sea fishing boat, most companies will charge one fee and keep you in as close to shore to save fuel. There are not as many big fish close to shore. We run an average of 40-50 miles before we put lines in the water. Cruising at 25 knots can get you there one to two hours faster than most boats and the boats that are faster do not go faster because they burn too much fuel. We are in pursuit of ‘THE BIG ONE’ every time our boat leaves the dock.

Our captains are true professionals with at least 15 years experience, they have a passion for fishing-you know the one-the one you can’t teach. Either they have it or they don’t. Our captains have it. It is unacceptable for them not to catch the most fish daily.
