Join DreamGirl Sportfishing and discover the productive Gulf Stream waters along the coast of North Carolina. Captain Steve Wilson is a 7th generation Ocracoke native and has 3 decades of experience as a captain. He specializes in light tackle Gulf Stream and wreck fishing, and always looks to deliver an authentic North Carolinian fishing experience to all of his customers.

The DreamGirl is a custom-built 41’ center console, powered by twin 300 HP Suzuki engines. She’ll take you where you want to be very quickly in order to maximize your fishing time. Plus, with all of her state-of-the-art navigational equipment, you’ll be on fish in no time!

She also has outriggers and downriggers for trolling, a flybridge to enjoy the view from, a live bait tank, an incredible sound system, and a private restroom. Capt. Steve built the DreamGirl straight out of a dream, and with the amount of success she’s brought him over the years, the two of them are truly a match made in heaven.

Capt. Steve can take you fishing over underwater structures where many fish like to feast on smaller species. Here, you will target Tilefish, Triggerfish, various Grouper and Snapper species, and Kingfish as well. You can also head a little further to deep drop for Sailfish, Marlin, and Swordfish, or troll the open waters for Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Wahoo.

You’ll be provided with only the best of the best equipment. Capt. Steve keeps top-of-the-line Penn gear for all of his customers, as well as bait and lures. You’ll have an experienced first mate and CPR-trained crew on board to help with anything you need, and most importantly, to keep you safe.

Your fishing license is already covered so you can get straight to the fun once you arrive at the dock. If you’re staying at the harbor, Capt. Steve will be more than happy to pick you up by boat. Book this exciting journey today and get ready to target some huge Atlantic monsters with DreamGirl Sportfishing!
