Waterdog Guide Service – 25'

Waterdog Guide Service welcomes you for a great fishing experience exploring the inlets, nearshore, and offshore waters of Atlantic Beach! Captain Tom Roller has been fishing for as long as he can remember, and he’s happy to show you to some of his favorite spots and honey holes in the area.

You’ll spend the day on his 25’ Parker center console boat. The boat is powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine, reaching some serious speed and taking you to the fishing grounds in a matter of minutes. It can accommodate up to 5 anglers aboard, so it’s the perfect vessel to take you out for a fun day with a group of friends.

This is a fish-rich area with some of the best inshore fishing opportunities, so you’ll have your hands full throughout the day. You can target fish like Redfish, Speckled Trout, Sharks, Bluefish, and Spanish Mackerel in the shallow waters. Heading nearshore will put you in reach of Flounder, King Mackerel, and Amberjack.

The offshore waters will provide you with great access to big Grouper, Cobia, and Mahi Mahi. You can expect to have fun and some serious action, all while enjoying some of the most beautiful natural views and learning about the area’s wildlife.

There’s a variety of trips you can choose from that can satisfy any angler’s needs. Capt. Tom welcomes fishermen of all skill levels, and he’ll be happy to introduce you to the joys of fishing. He’ll provide you with quality equipment, including fly fishing tackle, and although he specializes in using lures, he’ll provide live bait if that’s what you prefer.

All that’s left to do is book a trip you like and join Waterdog Guide Service for an unforgettable time in North Carolina waters!

    These 6-hour trips are for more serious ocean trips, heading out to nearshore waters, wrecks, and reefs fishing for Flounder, King and Spanish Mackerel, and Mahi Mahi within 10 miles of the beach. These trips also allow for longer runs up to Cape Lookout. They are also "entry-level" trips for ocean fly fishing targeting False Albacore, Amberjack, and Sharks.
  • Private trip
    Full Day Trip
    FREE Cancellation 60 days notice
    8 Hour Trip, starts at 7:00 AM
    $850
    Full day nearshore trips are for more serious anglers and allow for a wider range of fishing within 20 miles of the beach. These allow for much serious nearshore fishing for Flounder and King mackerel and allow us to reach better areas offshore for "blue water light" offshore fishing for King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, and Amberjack. These trips also put us in the range of better bottom fishing for Gag Grouper and Black Seabass during the summer months. Perfect for False Albacore fly fishing.
