Clearlyhooked Fishing Inshore

Annie Drive
Carolina Beach NC, United States

Whether you’re looking for a relaxing day on the water reeling in Flounders, or want to feel the adrenaline rush of battling a massive Bull Redfish, Clearlyhooked Fishing Inshore has you covered. Their varied offer of trips will please any inshore or nearshore angler in the gorgeous waters of Carolina Beach.

Captain Austin Eubank invites you to join him aboard his 20’ McKee Craft center console. She’s powered by a 150 HP Suzuki engine that allows her to cross the waters quickly, with a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots. Downriggers will give you an edge when trolling for bigger beasts. A live bait well will keep your bait alive and kicking.

Get ready to wrestle with a wide variety of beautiful local species. Troll for Barracuda, King and Spanish Mackerel, bottom fish for Flounders, and if a proper fight is what you’re looking for, you can target Redfish, Amberjacks, various Sharks, and other species – especially rewarding with light tackle! You can also target Black Drums, Black Seabass, Spotted Seatrouts, and other fish you may run into.

Captain Austin will guide and instruct you on this fishing adventure. He’s extremely skilled, having won in multiple Kingfish fishing tournaments. He’ll go above and beyond to ensure that you have the greatest experience these waters can offer. The equipment provided to you is top-tier, made by Shimano.

There’s no minimum age policy for kids with Clearlyhooked Fishing Charters and the captain will provide you with all life preservers. The captain will clean and fillet your catch free of charge if the total weight is under 70 lbs – for heavier loads a small fee is applied.

If you’re keen on seeing what the famous Carolina Beach has to offer an angler, join Captain Austin and embark on an amazing fishing adventure!
