Calabash Fishing Fleet – Black Hawk

(3) Going fast!

Calabash Fishing Fleet has hit upon a winning combination — awesome charters and experienced guides who know the waters of North Carolina like the back of their hand. Based in historical Calabash, which is often referred to as one of the ‘Sea Food Capitals’ of the country, they’re just waiting to take you on an adventure you’ll remember for a long time!

Your captain for the day is Robert Taylor who spent three decades exploring these waters. You’ll be spending your trip aboard his “Black Hawk,” an impressive 46’ Alexis walkaround that can comfortably accommodate up to 6 anglers.

She’s decked out with top-of-the-line navigational equipment, so you’ll be on the fish in no time. She also has a fully enclosed toilet, which means you’ll be traveling in comfort and style.

And where will you be going off to? Depending on the trip you choose, you’ll either be fishing for anything from Black Seabass to King Mackerel and Grey Snapper nearshore, or heading up to 30 miles offshore to battle pelagic VIPs like Mahi Mahi or Wahoo.

Fancy a combination of the two? Then go for the 3\4 day trip, which offers both nearshore and offshore fishing — you can fill your freezer and enjoy the fight of reeling in big game fish at the same time.

Whether you’re an experienced angler or are just discovering your sea legs, Capt. Robert welcomes you aboard. Want to make your fishing trips a family outing to remember? Children of all ages are welcome, with lifejackets provided in all sizes to ensure the safety of every guest.

Your guides will provide you with top-quality Penn rods and reels. You’ll be catching live bait on your trip, so you know it’ll be fresh and tasty for whatever species you want to reel in. At the end of your trip, you’ll get your catch cleaned and filleted so that you can turn it into a delicious meal in a matter of hours.

All that’s left is for you to book with Calabash Fishing Fleet and let “Black Hawk” sail you towards an adventure you won’t forget!
