Captain Lawrence holds a 100 ton endorsement US Coast Guard captains license and a US Coast Guard inspected vessel with the latest safety and fishing equipment. For the boat to obtain and keep a US Coast Guard inspection certificate it must be kept up to date on all of its safety equipment and inspections, so anyone that charters the boat knows that they are in great hands. He is able to accommodate up to 20 passengers on his vessel "The Long Line."

Throughout the year, Captain Lawrence carries charters through the months of March until September. The remainder of the year he commercial fishes for Grouper, Snapper, Sea Bass and then sells them to fish dealers locally, up North, and to restaurants in our area to ensure a fresh local catch. He has 20 plus years of experience fishing the surrounding waters of South Carolina and North Carolina . He is knowledgeable in any situation from catching Sharks and Mackerel inshore close to the beach, to offshore fishing in the Gulf Stream targeting sought after bottom dwellers like Grouper and Snapper, and even sportfish such as Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and Tuna. In the off season, other than commercial fishing, he also trawls for shrimp, goes to the marsh and picks up oysters, and sets gill nets.
