When you’re thinking of the North Carolina coast, one thing comes to mind: extreme fishing. With the Gulf Stream whizzing past, these waters are home to incredible nearshore and offshore fishing opportunities. Take advantage with Captain Big Fish. Operated by Captain Monty Childers, try your hand at a range of fishing. Having fished since he was a little boy, he gets the same thrill watching you reel in anything from a Mackerel to a Mahi.
Step aboard a 30’ Grady White center console and get ready to make your dreams come true. Powered by twin 300 HP Yamaha offshore engines, you’ll reach speeds of up to 33 knots, getting you on the fish faster than the rest. Restored in 2018, she also comes equipped with Garmin and Furuno navigational equipment. You’ll have a private bathroom on board, an essential on longer trips, especially as you make use of the free water on board.
You’ll take advantage of the live bait well on board, with bait prepared before your trip, and outriggers will also help you troll. On the reefs, try jigging and bottom fishing, while further out, wait for the reels to start screeching and jump to the rods to start reeling in a big one. Expect to go after Snappers, Groupers, Mackerels, and Cobia when hitting the nearshore. While offshore, you could catch anything from a spectacular Sailfish to a delicious Mahi Mahi.
Head up to 65 miles offshore to be at one with the marine life around you. The biggest fish live here and you’ll be amazed as you gaze upon these monsters. With snacks provided on board, you’re in for a treat throughout with Captain Big Fish. Let the captain know if you want to go scuba diving, and then all you need to do is bring your license, some sunscreen and towels. Settle in for a fun-filled fishing experience and book now.
