Sea Hunt

Ready to land the inshore Grand Slam? Then turn to Captain Fred Willis and he will take you to that best bite in the backcountry waters of Beaufort, NC. He’s an experienced veteran on these waters and knows all the most secret fish hideouts.

You will meet your guide on his 23’ center console, which will be your ride and fishing platform. The boat can accommodate up to 4 anglers and is equipped with a 250 HP Yamaha engine, to get you to that fishing action as soon as possible. Capt. Fred will provide all the fishing gear, including rods, reels, lures, and live bait.

Whether you choose a half day or a full day trip, your primary targets will be the inshore favorites like Flounder, Speckled Trout, and sizeable Redfish. The main techniques you will be using are spinning and light tackle to hook your next trophy catch and fill your cooler with fish.

You can choose how much of the catch you want to keep, and whatever you don’t want to bring home, you’re encouraged to release. You’re welcome to come to the trip with your little ones, they’re going to have a great time catching their first fish.

What you will need for this trip is a valid fishing license, as well as plenty of drinks, snacks, and lunch if you’re spending the whole day on the water. Jump aboard Sea Hunt and let Capt. Jack show you great fishing action!
