Second Sport Charters invites you on a memorable fishing day on the prolific waters of Carolina Beach! Let Captain Daniel Harris show you the way to the best offshore bite in the area and come home with a brag-worthy catch.

You will be fishing out of “Barbarino” – the captain’s 37’ Topaz sportfisher with twin 375 HP Caterpillar engines. The deck is spacious enough to easily accommodate up to 6 anglers and have them fishing at the same time.

Quality Shimano and Penn equipment will wait for you on the boat, as well as bait and a fighting chair, for when you hook a big one. Outriggers will help to extend your fishing reach, and there’s a cooler on board to keep your catch fresh.

The boat sports an air-conditioned cabin with plenty of seating, a kitchen, and a private toilet. This means you’ll travel and fish in full comfort. Barbarino is a lean fishing machine, perfectly suited for offshore fishing.

Capt. Daniel offers a wide array of trips targeting different species, so there’s something for everyone. You’ll mostly chase Spanish and King Mackerel and Bluefish on half day trips. Snappers, Amberjack, and the occasional Grouper are popular on 3/4 day and full day trips.

If you’d like to join the big leagues, book the offshore trip for favorites like Mahi Mahi, Triggerfish, Black Seabass, Sharks, and more. After the trip, the captain and the first mate can clean and fillet the catch for an additional charge.

Children of all ages are welcome on the expeditions with Capt. Daniel, he will provide the life vests for everyone. All you need to bring is food and drinks for the group, and leave everything else in your guide’s capable hands.

Join Second Sport Charters for a day of fishing fun and games! Who knows, maybe your next trophy awaits in the offshore waters of Carolina Beach!

The family of Captain Daniel Harris has spent over 90 years in North Carolina, and fishing became a part of the family tradition. Capt. Daniel was a first mate on several boats of different sizes during his college years and in time, fishing became his biggest passion. Thanks to the years he spent on the water, becoming a captain came naturally to Daniel. Today, he runs trips from Carolina Beach and puts people on the fish regularly. Daniel is also a certified NAUI diver and has taken many dives both offshore and inland.
