North Carolina has some of the best offshore fishing in the world. Let Release Me Sportfishing take you out on your offshore adventure and show you the best the East Coast has to offer!
Join Captain Robert Diggs on board his 28’ center console Contender. She’s powered by twin Yamaha engines, each producing 200 HP each. You can bring up to 5 of your fishing buddies on this offshore treat. She’s got outriggers to extend your reach when trolling for Tunas or Marlin. A live bait tank is also available, so your bait will be lively and kicking when you try for that big trophy fish.
A first mate will be on board to give you a hand with anything you need, on longer trips only. Release Me Sportfishing can offer a trip for every taste, with nearshore Groupers, Mackerel, and Snappers, all the way to the prestigious pelagic predators – Blue and White Marlins, Sailfish, and Blackfin and Yellowfin Tunas, as well as everything in between!
You’ll head out up to 60 miles offshore in the Gulf, only for the biggest game though. Live bait is available upon request and prepared before you arrive – no time wasted fishing for it. The captain offers pickup from Carolina Beach, Topsail Beach, and Wrightsville Beach, contact him before arriving to work out the details.
Customers can find free parking at the listed address. There’s no minimum age for children with Release Me Sportfishing. Kids under the age of 13 don’t have to pay the extra person fee for trips – getting young anglers hooked on offshore fishing is payment enough!
If you’ve got the angler’s itch and are keen on reeling in the fish of a lifetime, join Capt. Robert and head out into the blue!
