Trio Charters is owned and operated by Capt. Matthew Cline.  He is a native of Charleston and has over 25 years of experience fishing and navigating the area.  Being the father of 3 young boys, nothing is more important to him than teaching future generations about the Charleston area, fishing techniques and most importantly, conservation.  

At an early age Capt. Matthew was taught the significance of patience when fishing and he believes this is very important with his own children and with his clients.  At Trio Charters, we are very family focused and encourage those of all ages and skill levels to join us for a day on the water.
