Jamie Hough & Ryan Tiernan

As a native South Carolinian, fishing was in the offing for Capt Jamie Hough of The Redfish Mafia and Redfish Mafia Charters in Charleston SC. In 1995, as a freshman studying Biology and Psychology at the College of Charleston, Jamie began spending summers as a mate and later Capt on boats at the world famous Bud-N-Mary’s Marina in Islamorada, Fl. This led to a life of traveling and billfishing for months at a time. When back in Charleston, his skill was recognized and his inshore charter business began to thrive.

Now, more than 24 years later, Capt Jamie Hough is either in Charleston chasing redfish and trout on his charters or traveling all over the East and Gulf Coasts for Professional Redfish Tournaments as the HUK Gear/ Redfish Mafia Pro. Capt. Hough has numerous TV shows under his belt and several feature articles in publications such as Sport Fishing Magazine, SC Sportsman, GAFF and SC Game And Fish. In March of 2013, Jamie was voted Charleston City Paper’s “Best Fishing Charter 2013. In May of 2014, he brought home Grand Champion Honors at the first ever HT Elite Series tournament in Biloxi, Ms and then topped that by winning the 2015 IFA Redfish Tour National Championship in Hopedale, La and now has career earnings of over $200,000.
