Baldheaded Bobby Guide Service - New Bern

Baldheaded Bobby Guide Service offers fun-filled fishing trips in the Neuse River and beyond, going after the wide range of fish that call this area home. From kids and complete beginners to hardcore sportfishing fanatics, all are welcome. Enjoy bent rods and screaming drag on the beautiful North Carolina coast.

Captain “Baldheaded” Bobby Brewer was drawn to the local area by the very same fish you’ll be catching. Living in nearby Oriental, NC, he’s perfectly placed to show you his favorite fishing spots and all the trick he’s picked up during his time fishing the area.

Capt. Bobby runs his trips aboard a 22’ Sea Hunt center console built in 2015. The boat can carry up to 3 anglers in comfort and speed, thanks to her 200 HP Yamaha engine. She’s equipped with GPS and fishfinder to pinpoint the biggest fish and the best spots around. She also has a trolling motor to let you sneak up on even the spookiest fish.

If variety is the spice of your life, book a “Mixed Bag” trip and go after Striped Bass, Flounder, Red Drum, Speckled Trout, and more. Just looking for the biggest Drum around? Capt. Bobby runs specialist trip targeting just that! You can also head out into the Atlantic to chase Little Tunny, Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, and Sharks. Whatever you’re after, you’ll find it here!

Capt. Bobby will tailor each trip to your abilities and interests – anyone can have a great time here. Just grab your food, drinks, sunscreen, and camera, and jump aboard. Don’t forget your cooler, because Capt. Bobby will make sure it’s full by the end of the trip!

I started fishing as a little boy with my dad. We would sit on the banks of my grandmother's pond, seine minnows in the local creeks, wade fish for Bass in the local river, catch Crappie in our old aluminum boat and sit out trotlines for big ol' Catfish. Just being outside and active has always been a big part of my life. Since those early years, I've settled in Oriental NC and have fallen in love with the area's fish: Speckled Trout, Redfish, Stripers, Flounder, giant Bull Drum, Spanish Mackerel, False Albacore, Cobia, and others. Each day is a joy knowing that I can fish in these waters. I would love to share it with you.
