Fins2Feathers

Morehead City has an amazing fishing reputation, and with Fins2Feathers, you can explore it up close! Captain Luis Herron provides his customers with fun and productive fishing excursions that will leave them with smiles on their faces and fish fillets in the cooler.

Your ride and fishing platform for the day is a 25’ Carolina Skiff, outfitted with a 200 HP Suzuki engine and more than enough room for up to 4 anglers. Everyone on board can fish at the same time. This boat is fast and stable and will take you to the best bite quickly.

The vessel also sports a wireless trolling motor, which allows you to be quiet and sneak up to the fish. Capt. Luis will provide high-end Penn and Shimano reels and All Star rods for you to use, as well as live bait. If you’d like to try fly fishing, you should bring your own fly fishing gear. Your captain has a basic rod, but an experienced fly fisherman will want their own equipment.

When it comes to your catch, you can expect a wide variety of species at the end of your line. Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Bluefish, and Spanish Mackerel are the most common prey on shorter trips.

On full day expeditions, set your sights on Cobia, Amberjack, Black Drum,  and Sharks. Of course, there’s no knowing precisely what will find your hook irresistible, so pleasant surprises are always possible.

Come fishing with your little ones and make a day out of it. Capt. Luis will make sure everything runs smoothly and everybody has a wonderful time on board. You only need to pack some snacks and drinks, and your fishing adventure can begin.

With Fins2Feathers, it’s all about the memorable times on the water and a brag-worthy catch!

I was born and raised in Panama City, Panama, where my love for the water began at a very early age, thanks to my grandfather who shared the same passion. In 1994, we moved to the beautiful Crystal Coast of North Carolina, and I made it my permanent home after college. What I enjoy most about fishing is the chance to teach people how and what to look for while fishing. The reaction of my clients when fighting and landing a fish is priceless. It’s all about having fun and making new memories on the water along with sharing my passion for the ocean.
