About me

Captain Lawrence Long IV is a fourth generation fishermen that has come from the Long family of Little River. His great grandad, Lawrence Long, started the charter fishing industry out of Little River in 1926. Since then his entire family has been a part of the fishing industry out of Little River including his grandad Larry Long, his great uncle's Billy and Ricky Long, his uncle Chris Long and his cousins. Captain Lawrence has been working on a fishing boat since he was 5 years old, alongside his family, and has owned and operated his own boat, "The Long Line" since 2013. Captain Lawrence decided to name the boat "The Long Line" because of the long line of generational fisherman from his family and the impact they have had on the fishing community in the Little River and surrounding areas for the last 100 years. 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. Captain Lawrence, combined with his relaxed personality and extensive knowledge of the fishing industry, will make sure you have a great and memorable fishing experience on "The Long Line" whether you choose to embark on an inshore 1/2 day excursion or an all day offshore experience. You will not regret choosing Captain Lawrence Long IV and his vessel "The Long Line" for your next fishing experience!

I want to say what an amazing day my family and I had with Capitan Long. This was our first time taking a fishing trip and I can positively say I'm so very glad it was on Captain Longs boat. The 1st mate was so very helpful, and they were so kind to my grandchildren. Their kindness and customer service was impeccable. I highly recommend Capitan Long if your looking for a wonderful day on the ocean fishing.

Trip: 6 Hour Offshore Fishing With Captain Long

The Captain and Mate were 1st class, the only thing I would say that needs improvement would be the bathroom on the boat. I made sure when booking that we got a boat with a bathroom because we had Girls and Women coming along, our boat got changed 3 times and we ended up going out on the Long Line. The trip was awesome we wanted sharks and we caught 11 that is pretty impressive I think. We will definitely book the Long Line again in the future and, hope he gets the head squared away ;) .

Great trip! Captain Long and his 1st mate were great. We caught Spanish Mackerel and Shark. There were 7 of us on the boat and all had lots of fun.
