Coastline Charters

Coastline Charters specializes in inshore and nearshore fishing trips for all levels of experience. Captain Luke Moser is an entertaining and knowledgable guide who is dedicated to providing exceptional service and helping you land the fish of your dreams!

Your boat for the day is a 21’ Sportsman Tournament Bay Boat, perfect for inshore and nearshore fishing. Her shallow draft makes it easy to maneuver in low waters while still providing enough stability to trek through deeper waters. Built in 2020, she comes with state-of-the-art electronics, safety gear, a wireless trolling motor, two 10’ power poles, and a live bait tank. You and 2 other guests will be able to fish at the same time, with plenty of space to follow your target around the deck.

Trips are year round, and different seasons can produce various types of species. During the spring and summer, you’ll be able to hook Redfish, Flounder, Sheepshead, and Speckled Trout while staying inshore. Fall and winter time will see you targeting the same species, plus lots of Black Drum!

If you want to head out a little further during the spring and summer months, you can expect to target Kingfish and Spanish Mackerel. Capt. Luke will typically sight cast for Spanish Mackerel and troll for Kingfish, using either live bait or high-performance lures.

On each trip, you’ll be provided with top-of-the-line Allstar and Penn tackle. Live bait is also included in the price, as well as your fishing license. After your trip, Capt. Luke will offer to clean and bag your catch so you can go home with a few delicious fillets for the family.

There’s no minimum age for kids, and life jackets are provided as well. Capt. Luke invites you and your family to join him on this exclusive adventure in sunny Willmington, NC. Just bring some snacks, drinks, sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses, and the rest will be taken care of. Book your trip with Coastline Charters and join Capt. Luke on his Carolina Skiff for some action-packed fishing!

Member since April 2019
Captain Luke Moser grew up fishing North Carolina’s beautiful coast, from its inshore canals and estuaries to its deep offshore waters. Fishing has always been his greatest passion, so he decided to make a living out of it. He started his own charter service in 2017 and it’s been the best decision he's made! Capt. Luke loves meeting new people and teaching first timers how to fish. His customers describe him as “kind, passionate, and very patient with kids.” He loves having families on board and says that nothing is better than seeing the look on a kid’s face after he gets his first fish on the hook. Capt. Luke also writes fishing reports for Fisherman’s Post Magazine and is extremely knowledgable about migratory patterns. He knows where to fish at the right time! Book your next adventure with Coastline Charters and let Capt. Luke put you on some incredible fish while you enjoy a beautiful day on the water!
