Come on down to Beaufort, NC, and join Reel Tight Adventures for a fishing experience you’ll remember for years to come! Captain Allen Heath has more than 2 decades of fishing experience in the area, making him a perfect fit for taking you out on the water and showing you around. If you want to fish and have fun doing it, you’ve come to the right place.

You’ll be fishing from a 22’ Seahunt bay boat that runs on a single 200 HP Yamaha engine. This fishing machine has enough room for up to 3 anglers, so be sure to grab some friends to share in the fun. From navigational electronics to a wireless trolling motor and livewell for bait, this boat is equipped with everything you’ll need for a safe and productive trip.

Depending on your preferences and time of year, you’ll have the option of choosing from a wide variety of different fishing options. From regular Drum fishing to Flounder gigging trips and more, there’s something here for every angler. Some of the most common targeted species include Redfish, Flounder, Spotted Seatrout, Striped Bass, and Bluefish.

All the necessary fishing gear (both conventional and gigging) will be included in the trip price. Capt. Allen provides fishing licenses for nearshore trips, but for inland waters, you’ll need to bring your own. It’s best to check with the captain prior to the trip to see which license you’ll be needing. The Reel Tight Adventures crew looks forward to fishing with you soon!
