Fillet And Release Fishing Charters

If you are looking to fill the cooler with delicious fish and get your dinners sorted out, give Fillet And Release Fishing Charter a try. They can cater to anglers of all skill levels and will gladly accommodate even the most die-hard fishing enthusiasts!

All you have to do is choose a trip that suits your schedule and hop onboard a 36’ Phoenix offshore sportfishing boat. Its twin 370 HP Cummins engines will power you to the hottest grounds in the area, while the top-notch navigational and fishfinding electronics will save your time while you’re looking for a big one.

The boat features a flybridge to spot any top-water feeders. It also has a private toilet for your maximum comfort, a fighting chair, outriggers, and downriggers. Finally, it is rigged with a livewell which will be loaded with bait to make sure nothing can resist your hooks.

Explore the beautiful waters of Carolina Beach and get your hands on anything that lives from 1 mile all the way up to 50 miles offshore.

Spend your day battling various types of Sharks, such as Tiger, Blacktip, Spinner, Blacknose, Sand, and many more. Check the bite nearshore for Spanish Mackerel, Kingfish, and Bluefish. Head a bit further out for Mahi Mahi, Cobia, Amberjack, Grouper, and Snapper. If that’s not enough, venture 30-50 miles out for some trolling/bottom fishing action, adding Black Seabass to the list.

All trips include the use of gear, tackle, lures, and bait, as well as fishing licenses.
