Reelax Fishing Charters

Going fast!

Captain Corbett welcomes you aboard his 34’ Bonner custom boat. He offers a multitude of trips, so there is something for everyone to choose from. Heading out up to 40 miles and targeting a variety of fish in each area, Capt. Corbett will help you hook the trophy fish of your dreams.

His boat is 13’ wide, so there is plenty of room for 6 anglers to fish simultaneously and not cross rods. The cockpit is almost 170 square feet, plenty of space to relax. Reelax Fishing Charters have comfortable sleeping quarters, dining quarters, and air conditioning aboard the boat, so that their customers have all the comforts of home while they are catching fish.

For beginners, the 4 and 5-hour trips are best. You will stay within sight of the land, so waters are likely to be smoother for the younger anglers on board. Capt. Corbett offers flexibility with the trips - if you wish to spend more time sightseeing for wild horse and dolphins he is happy to accommodate! You will target Bluefish, Flounder, and Spanish Mackerel.

For more experienced anglers, the longer trips will give you plenty of time to target specific species and reel them in. Rods and reels are provided, but electric reels are available on request only, so you can target bottom fish from the deep!

The Captain is happy to have you spearfishing, bowfishing or fly fishing on board. However, equipment for these techniques is not provided, so please bring your own along! You can target Tuna, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Red Snapper, King Mackerel and more!

All that’s left to do is grab your snacks, sunscreen and polarized sunglasses! A 20% tip is expected at the end of your trip. Capt. Corbett will see you soon for your biggest fishing adventure!

I grew up fishing here in eastern North Carolina with my family night and day. Fishing is and has always been my life! I hold numerous lifesaving awards from the US Coast Guard as well as many other awards for Efforts Above and Beyond. I have always worked on the water, doing everything from running commercial boats to running commercial assistance boats as well as private yachts. Not only will I put you on the fish but I can ensure a safe and good time will be had by all!
