Bentstik II Fishing Charters LLC

Captain Rob Barton of Bentstik II Fishing Charters LLC has many years of experience of fishing the waters of the Carolinas and Florida and he loves having anglers of all ages and experience levels on board. His main goal is a productive and safe fishing experience and his motto is ‘there is no age limitation for having fun fishing.’

Step aboard his custom built 40’ sportfishing boat that was fully refurbished in 2017. This beauty is clean, well maintained, safe, and fast. Thanks to its twin 485 HP Detroit Diesel engines, it can take you to the most productive fisheries at a staggering speed of 45 knots, impressive for a vessel of that size.

The boat is not only fast, but also very safe and child-friendly, it has guard rails and top-of-the-line safety equipment. Large deck enables comfortable fishing experience – up to 6 anglers can fish without bumping elbows. The vessel is fully air-conditioned during summer and heated during winter, and it also features outriggers, a flybridge, restroom, shower, and bunks. A fighting chair, live bait tanks, and ice-boxes will be on board at your disposal.

Let the captain take you on a nearshore and offshore adventure of a lifetime and show you the most productive spots. You can expect to have epic battles with Marlin, Amberjack, Mahi, Barracuda, Kingfish, Wahoo, and even Sharks. Spring and late fall are perfect for sportfishing and trolling, and during Summer, the captain will be focusing on bottom fishing and trolling.

All the tackle and lures will be included in the price, along with fishing licenses. First mate Josh will be there to make sure you have everything you need for an amazing day on the water, so 15-20% for his efforts is recommended. All you have to do is bring food and drinks, and of course, the desire to catch fish!

I fell in love with fishing at a young age, while fishing with my grandfather, and it became a way of life for me. I have been a fishing captain for 25 years now, still fishing from the heart. Trolling is my favorite technique because of the rush of not knowing what awaits you at the other end of the line. I'm looking to share my passion for fishing with my customers during every trip we take together.
