Spend an exciting day with Fin Chaser Charters NC! Docked at the Captain Stacy Fishing Center in Atlantic Beach, this team offers great nearshore and offshore fishing trips. As every day is a fishing day, their trips are available year-round.

Hop on board a comfortable 62 Custom Carolina style sport fishing boat. This boat accommodates up to 6 guests and it’s spacious enough for everybody to fish at the same time. For those who want to keep away from the sun, there is a comfortable air-conditioned lounge area with a TV. Equipped with twin 750 HP John Deere diesels and quality safety and navigation equipment, this boat easily finds its way to the best fishing grounds.

Depending on the season, you will target Marlin, Sailfish, Swordfish, Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and Mackerel. Captain Keith Smith will provide all necessary fishing equipment, live and artificial bait, and your fishing license is also covered. The fish that you catch is not only a photo trophy – you can also keep it after the trip.

Captain Keith has over 20 years of experience in local fishing tournaments across various fishing grounds. His knowledge is at your service and he will make sure that your day on his boat is the one you will never forget. Use your opportunity to experience the thrill of offshore fishing. With Fin Chaser Charters, that opportunity is one click away.

Please remember that our mates work for tips. A 15-20% tip is customary.
