Captain Long - Who is he ? What is he ?Captain Long isn't one person, it's the name of this group site of Little River, South Carolina fishing captains.
These are Captain Larry Long (Lawrence Long, Jr.), Captain Billy Long, Captain Ricky Long, and Captain Chris Long. The Captains are third and fourth generation lifelong fishermen running commercial and charter fishing boats out of Little River, what has been --until recently-- a small fishing village about 20 minutes to the north of Myrtle Beach.
From a family with roots here for generations, and a bloodline known for longevity, the Captains are a unique bunch, and all descendents of Captain Lawrence Long, one of the original fishermen who began taking locals and tourists on charters in the 1920s.
