You’ll explore the waters between Wrightsville Beach and Topsail Island and go further offshore to target a wide range of species. Get ready to have fun with the family, catch some fish, and create lasting memories!
Your journey will take place on a 29’ May-Craft center console, equipped with state-of-the-art electronics, fishing tackle, and safety gear. The deck is spacious and comfortable with enough room for 4 guests to fish at the same time. Capt. Joe also welcomes kids ages 5 and older on board and he’s got life jackets available for them as well.
You can expect to do a lot of trolling and/or bottom fishing, depending on the trip you choose. While bottom fishing in inshore waters, you’ll target Porgy, Triggerfish, Grouper, Black Seabass, and many more. Heading further offshore opens up more opportunities for a greater range of species. Here, you’ll be trolling for Mahi Mahi, Kingfish, Wahoo, Barracuda, and many other pelagic fish.
Capt. Joe will also take you fishing over reefs and wrecks where you’ll be able to drift or bottom fish for species such as Amberjack. The waters off the coast of Willmington and Hampstead are well-known for their diverse fishing grounds and there’s a little bit of something for everyone!
Just be sure to purchase a fishing license at the local bait shop before your trip and everything else will be covered. Your captain will provide you with top-notch rods and reels made by Okuma, Daiwa, and Shimano and live bait is also included in the price.
Feel free to pack up some food and drinks for the ride and be sure to bring some sunscreen as well. Your next adventure awaits, so book your trip today and get ready for an incredible day of fishing with Atlantic Sportfishing!
