Fishin Fannatic Sportfishing

Fishin Fannatic offers some of the finest sport fishing experience on the waters of Outer Banks, North Carolina. Captain Mark will take you out to the Gulf Stream for Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi-Mahi Mahi, Billfish, and Wahoo. The company is family-friendly, so kids are welcome to join the adventure. There is nothing better than seeing a child’s smile when they catch their first fish!

Captain Mark will take you out aboard a spacious 53’ Viking sportfisher, which is a seaworthy fishing machine, well-prepared for the current bite. Originally built in 1990, it was up-hauled in 2018 and comes powered by twin 1850 HP Man engines. It cruises comfortably at 28 knots and is rigged with Garmin and Furuno navigational electronics and safety facilities. Licensed for taking up to six anglers out, the vessel has a 16’ wide cockpit and plenty of room for all guests to be involved in fishing. Inside, there is a fully air-conditioned salon with couches, a restroom, and a galley. There is a flybridge to spot any action going on beneath the surface. You’ll also have a comfortable fighting chair for the most challenged anglers, as well as an ice-box to fill up your catch with.

A day out in the North Carolina Outer Banks is not complete without a sport fishing experience. Each trip can be customized to suit your specific needs. The packages are from four to eleven hours on the water, including a full-day trip offshore. You targeted species will include Mahi-Mahi Mahi, Bluefin Tuna, Little Tunny, Yellowfin Tuna, Bluefish, Tilefish, Sailfish, Cobia, Wahoo, White Marlin, Blue Marlin… and the list just keeps going!

All trips come with licenses and quality rods, reels, and tackle.

I grew up fishing in South Florida and knew I wanted to be a fisherman as my career. I have been fishing the waters up and down the east coast for over 38 years. I have spent time on everything from drift boats, long lining, private boats, charter boats and have owned by own charter operation for a number of years.
