Colton's Toy Fishing Charters LLC

Colton’s Toy Fishing Charters LLC is ready and waiting to show you what the crystal clear waters off of Sealevel, NC’s coastline have to offer. With local angler Captain Justin Gilgo at the helm, you’ll have the chance to battle huge Bluefin Tuna, hook your best Bull Redfish, or target a “who’s-who” of big game fish. The hardest part is narrowing it down to just one trip!

Capt. Justin grew up fishing the waters of Eastern NC, and this passion for angling encouraged him to start his very own charter business. He pours all of his local know-how into running exciting adventures for guests of all ages, from hardened fishermen to budding anglers. When he’s not out at sea, he’s working as a Fire Inspector in the town of Emerald Isle – so you know you’ll be in safe hands when you hop on board his vessel!

You’ll fish from a 27’ ProLine center console, named “Colton’s Toy” after your captain’s firstborn child. What better vessel to introduce your own kids to the magic of angling from? With a capacity of up to 6 guests, Colton’s Toy is the perfect option for a friendly competition or family bonding trip. She’s decked out with top-quality navigational and safety gear, a toilet, and outriggers to cover plenty of ground when trolling.

These outriggers will come in handy if you’re chasing Tuna! Target this big beast and other hard-fighting fish such as Mahi Mahi, Marlin, and Sailfish up to a whopping 60 miles from shore. Capt. Justin recommends that anglers opting for an offshore adventure have some fishing experience under their belts.

If you’re a newer angler, there’s plenty on offer for you, too. Bottom fish for Mackerel species, Bluefish, Triggerfish, and more, or chase monster Redfish (“Red Drum” locally) under the cover of darkness. The distance from shore may be less, but the excitement isn’t!

Your captain will provide all the fishing gear you need, as well as a fishing license. Get ready to cast off on an amazing adventure with Colton’s Toy Fishing Charters LLC!

"I was born and raised on the water in Eastern NC and have been around fishing my whole life. I just love the water and the ocean. I'm a full time Fire Inspector and Fire Engineer for the town of Emerald Isle, and run fishing charters on my days off. I started my own fishing charter business in 2015 and love every minute of it!" Colton’s Toy Fishing Charters is based out of Cedar Creek Campground and Marina in Sealevel. Local angler Captain Justin Gilgo will be your guide – he's been around the water his whole life, and has also been involved in the commercial fishing industry. It's safe to say he knows a thing or two about these fishing grounds! He decided to start up his own charter fishing business in 2015. The boat is named after his firstborn son Colton and he takes a lot of pride in that. He fishes for all different kinds of species, from hard-fighting Mahi Mahi to big bull Red Drum. Come join in on the fun!
