Capt. Jerry Caton recently took over ownership of Sea Tow Georgetown in South Carolina.

Caton and his team serve the surrounding waters and creeks of the Waccamaw River to the north and Winyah Bay and the Atlantic Ocean to the south and east.

Caton served eight years in the U.S. Marine Corps in the 1980s. Before taking over Sea Tow Georgetown in mid-June, he was in the gas station and convenience store business, and also was heavily involved in tournament sportfishing.

So far, he reports he has spent the majority of his time at Sea Tow Georgetown assisting local recreational anglers on the water.

“The good news is that fishermen usually take care of their boats, but we have had some clogged fuel filters and boats running out of gas,”Caton said in a statement. “We also have a lot of skinny and shallow water to the north. There are probably 100 or more creeks up there, all tidal-controlled, and if you misjudge a turn it just takes a second to get stuck on a sandbar.”
