TAYLOR HORTON

Owner/Charter Captain

Hey y'all my name is Taylor! Beaufort, SC has been the place I've called home my entire life. I got hooked at an early age growing up on the river and can honestly say it never gets old. It's a place where I've always felt very much in-tune with the Lord and I truly believe that's the fuel behind my passion. Being in His creation alone has allowed me to know more about myself and the direction He's leading me in. I'm very passionate about this area and that's why I wanted to create a brand that represents it to the core. I'm also a charter captain and I love seeing people enjoy themselves out on the water. Thank you for your interest in our brand and your continued support over the years. God Bless!

CAPTAIN NICHOLAS BOYD

Lead Charter Captain

Hey y'all I'm Captain Nicholas Boyd and I'm a Beaufort native, born and reared right here in the Lowcountry where I have had the luxury of fishing the salt marshes over the last 15 years. Growing up on the sea islands of Beaufort, my father introduced me to fishing at a very early age. Fishing became my passion and its the main driving force behind why I wanted to become a charter captain. I run an 18'8" Hells Bay Neptune which is why tactical inshore fishing is my specialty, especially fly fishing. In 2015 I met Captain Taylor Horton of SCO and we have been the best of friends and fishing partners ever since. I always look forward to meeting new faces and seeing them get excited when there's a fish on. I'm excited to be a part of this team and its future. See you out on the water!

Proud to be a part of this team and look forward to meeting you!

Hey! My name is Emily and I'm a Lowcountry girl, born and reared in Bluffton, SC. The best word to describe me is "artistic". My art has grown to take on many shapes and forms over the years.
