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!

Didnt get to go after the fish i wanted due to rough seas and couldnt reschedule due to a short amount of time on the trip. But was still able to go out for a 4 hour shark fishing trip. Dispite the rough seas it was still an experience of a lifetime! Caught 2 black tip and 4 or 5 finetooth captain long was very friendly and knowledgeable and still was able to get us on some fish. All in all it was still a great experience! Ill definitely be booking another trip!

Captain Long was very knowledgeable. We were able to catch sharks within minutes of them casting. I took four teenage boys and they all had a great time! I'd recommend these guys to anyone!

I've been on a multitude of deep sea fishing trips and this one was by far the best. Mike and Lawrence were very knowledgeable, worked great with the young folks on our trip, and made our trip very memorable. We highly recommend these guys and will be booking again in the future.
