RedFin Fishing was named the #1 Fishing Charter 

in Charleston, South Carolina 2018

We got to experience just what makes RedFin #1! We are delighted to introduce you to RedFin Fishing Charters Inshore Fishing "Best Fishing Charters in Charleston, South Carolina 2018!" Truly, the best family outdoor excursion trips are offered by RedFin Fishing Charters!  We are a family that loves traveling and sporting together and we love Charleston so this was a perfect partnership. Charleston has it own accolades:



Here's are the reasons you to have fun and plan your own family travel with RedFin to Charleston. It's one of our favorite vacation adventures.

From the moment we connected with co-owner, Joel, and began planning our trip with RedFin, it was a true delight. RedFin listened and got to know our family. Then, they tailored an inshore fishing experience to our family's own wishes. It was a perfect day.

RedFin Charters gave us all the more reason to call the Holy City our favorite! From the first phone call, then the texts to prepare and on to Joel and Captain Ethan, also co-owner meeting us at the dock, every family member had an ideal fishing trip! We loved spending the day inshore fishing with Captain Ethan! 

It was helpful that we had a picture perfect day. Truly, ideal fishing weather. You know fishermen, any day fishing is better than not fishing.

I'm going to let pictures speak the thousands of words throughout this post. You can enjoy the sheer pleasure of our excursion. My Boulder Mt. Man is as happy as can be at sea. He's handsome as ever, too. I think he's quite my catch! :) Here Ethan is teaching us how to catch our bait - the good stuff! Large shrimp!

Then, we relaxed and hit the "fishing holes" at Sullivan's Island. It was a short and exciting ride over. The teens chill pretty well. 

RedFin had a cooler of water, sprite, cold drinks so we were all set. They are very accommodating to their guests. It was nice to have everything we needed. 

Captain Ethan taught us all about "Deep holing" by demonstrating catching our own bait! 
This was so fascinating! Look at that cast! He caught huge shrimp. 

My Boulder Mt. Man was pretty fascinated by the process, too! 

Here he is putting bait in the cooler that RedFin had ready and waiting on the boat.

Sunny Sullivan's Island was a perfect locale for our
son to catch his first fish of the day! Look how beautiful.

And another! It was so amazing! 

Again, I had the best views! 

I enjoy fishing! This was my best fishing day ever!  RedFin Fishing Charters made sure we were comfortable and had all of the gear we needed! Including bait! 

I relaxed and enjoyed so much of this perfect day! 

We were all pretty mesmerized by this day! 

Our Captain Ethan was such a great guide. He showed us how to fish successfully, 
be patient and to reel them in! 

The boys were first in their comfort zones, for sure. Okay, living their best lives! :) 

Catch after catch! Look at this happy face! :) 

Mama persisted! I really loved learning more about casting. I got the feel for it and loved trying again. Captain Ethan patiently coached me through it. Boulder Mt. Man captured the best photos! :)

Our boys loved it! Another catch! 

Here I am working away to bait my line and cast away. Smiling all the way.
 I'm in my happy place, too. 

Our son fishing in the Low country reminded me of Louisiana's marshlands. 
It's peaceful and beautiful. 

Speaking of Louisiana, my sweet husband captured these Pelicans for me! And the Ravenel Bridge all in one! 

Everything is gorgeous out here. 

Captain Ethan tells us about local history and his stories. We loved his entertainment as well as
his coaching us along on fishing. 

More beautiful bridges off of the waterway and marina. Thanks, Boulder Mt. Man.

Another great photo of deep holing. This is a beautiful process. 

Our senior taking it all in. He's got this. RedFin took great care of us. 

Boulder Mt. Man is back to it and ready to fish some more! :) He's the cutest fisherman.

Yes, I could do this all day! There is something magical about being on the water and not having a care in the world. Such a refreshing time.

The boating was stellar. 

Captain Ethan with a great catch! 

The fish were abundant as were the smiles! 

Success! I loved having such a perfect day, a perfect charter company like RedFin to make
our family fishing vacation a dream come true. 

Swimming happened! Hanging out! 

The happy, southern, fishing family! :) #TerrellTribe

CREED II an Inspirational Sports Movie #CreedII

Guest post by Boulder Mt. Man

One of our favorite sports inspirational movies is Facing the Giants. It is a great family movie. We love it because it makes you cry and laugh. It is based on a true story, which always makes for a more inspiring story. 

The reason it's such a favorite is the against all odds spirit of the movie. It is about a struggling high school football coach who is really at the end of his rope. He doesn't know what to do, he is having another losing season and in danger of losing his job. 

Part of the reason our family likes it is because a big part of the plot is this coach turning his life over to God, and how his faith becomes a big part of the comeback for his high school football team. 
Through a lot of trial and error, challenging the team to be all they can be and to grow in their own faith, they turn the season around. To the point that they play for the state championship against a team, there should be no way they can win. Again, against all odds, they end up winning the championship game and go on to be the team to beat in years to come.

In this movie there is a lot of don't give up, stand for what is right. Faith and family come first, etc. It seems as if it is similar to Creed II in many respects. Our boys are very excited to see this movie, as they know it's going to be a very inspirational sports movie with a lot happening behind the scenes of the big fights...below is a synopsis of this new, exciting movie...Sylvester Stallone still at it! Can't wait to see him in action as a coach this time, not the boxer! 

Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family's past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what's worth fighting for, and discover that nothing's more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can't escape your history.  

The film releases in theaters on Wednesday, November 21.  #CreedII

Do you enjoy inspirational sports movies?

Fleet Landing Charleston's Best Waterfront Dining

We have a love of Charleston, seafood and Fleet Landing. It's true! Plus, Fleet Landing is Charleston's best seafood and waterfront dining! 

Charleston's Best Waterfront Dining and "Official Winner of the Unofficial Title of Best Shrimp & Grits" thanks to the readers of CHSToday!
Some years ago, we loved discovering Fleet Landing and ever since, we make it a part of our visits to the Holy City. Fleet is a wonderful locale right off of City Market in downtown Charleston. 

On our recent visit, I got to work with them and to share with you here my own Restaurant Review of our own opinions. All authentic. As soon as we parked the car, our sons started playing corn hole out front! So these teen parents took a selfie to commemorate! 

It was a beautiful night! Look at our handsomes with the gorgeous sunset. This is from our table. We love dining al fresco. We were happy to be seated on the water with the ornate U.S. Customs building and the city of Charleston in the skyline. 

We meant it when we said the restaurant is on the water! Here's the view! We were just about to challenge our teens to a game of corn hole and our name was called already! It's awesome at Fleet because they seat a lot of people between the indoor seating options and the outdoor. 

The fried flounder was amazing. It was a lightly fried white fish, a nice mild flavor. The fried shrimp, of course, is always great. Our son really enjoyed the fries, he says they are some of his favorite. 

We loved sitting on the deck and enjoying the water nad sail boats as they passed by! The sunset was gorgeous and relaxing. It was a perfect night reminiscent of Summertime! 

While you eat delicious seafood, you will see all of the water activity! It's so fun! 

We all agreed that some Peel N' Eat Shrimp were in order for an appetizer. Charleston fresh seafood perfection. We felt like we were home! 

Our server recommended Fleet Landing Stuffed Hush Puppies - filled with veloute of Lobster, Rock Shrimp, Leeks, and Corn over an incredible Creole (my love language!) Tomato Sauce. Basically, just go to Charleston to get this! How creative is that! The flavor was so delicious, fresh and unique! We all four loved these.

My husband and I love seared scallops! He chose these delectable Seared Scallops! They were perfection. The flavor was amazingly rich, and the sides were a very nice compliment to the main meal.

I was thrilled with the fresh caught Red Snapper with an incredible Pimento Cheese Grits with Grilled  Green Beans! Pretty much, mention Pimento Cheese and I'm in! We're in! 
I'd love to just drive down to Charleston now and repeat this meal! I hope you get to try it soon. 

One of our sons ordered the Fried Shimp plate, a favorite of his.  

Our server, Landon, was awesome. He was very knowledgeable about the entire menu and was very helpful. You could tell he really enjoyed serving and interacting with us and his other tables. 

It was such a lovely night, we needed to wrap up the wonderful evening with another round of cornhole. 

This was our table and setting! We loved it! Indoors at Fleet Landing is beautiful and lively, however, we love the deck! 

It was a fabulous evening! We highly recommend you enjoy seafood dining at Fleet Landing Charleston soon! 

Warmly, Carolina Mama
