Meet Nathan
USCG Captain Nathan Key | Phone: 864-940-4747

Nathan Key is a true outdoorsman. He has hunted and fished a variety of species across the Southeastern United States from a very early age. After spending only a little time with him it's easy to see that he is most passionate about striped bass and hybrid fishing.


Nathan predominately fishes Lake Hartwell, which he considers to be his home lake. He has over 20 years of experience fishing on Lake Hartwell. He is also very familiar with Lake Russell and the Clark's Hill reservoir. Nathan was a commercial bait fisherman for several years, and has a vast knowledge of the procurement and handling of almost every bait species. 


Nathan prides himself on his professionalism. He obtained his commercial Captain's license through the United States Coast Guard. He keeps his equipment and boat in immaculate condition. Nathan's goal first and foremost is to provide his clients with a great fishing experience, full of conversation, relaxation, and the thrill of plenty of fish in the cooler at the end of the trip. He's very easy to talk to and is very good with kids. The skill and personality of Nathan Key, and the beautiful South Carolina scenery will ensure that your trip with Shad Slinger will be an experience you won't soon forget. 




Wonderful Experience! We caught fish the whole time and had a blast. Nathan is a great guide, very knowledgeable and has top notch equipment. I have already booked another trip!! That is how awesome it was!



What an awesome fishing trip! Capt. Nate got us hooked up with 50 plus fish on free lines, down lines and boards! Best guided trip! We will be back! Thanks Capt. Nate!



Nathan was extremely knowledgable about fishing in Lake Hartwell. We started catching fish as soon as we got on the water and didn't really stop until it was time to go home. A trip with Nathan is worth every penny!
