First Mate Justin:  Justin has been a part of the fishing community in Charleston, SC since before he could catch bait.  You will not find a more high energy experienced first mate anywhere on the east coast.  Justin always has the best interest of SouthStar’s clients in mind and strives to making their experience a memorable one!

First Mate Davo:  Davo has been fishing offshore out of Charleston for 20 years and is one of the most experienced mates around.  When it comes to rigging, reeling and catching fish Davo is one of the best!


The High Yield is a 47’ Rose Brothers Custom Carolina Sport Fisher built in Harkers Island, North Carolina.  The boat is equipped to take groups up to six to the Gulf Stream for a day of off-shore fishing.

She supports a 17’ wide cockpit which is larger than most boats and allows all guests to be in the cockpit participating in the action at once! The salon is well equipped with air conditioning, comfortable couches, DVD/CD player, sleeping quarters and head / shower.
