Get ready for the fishing trip of a lifetime with Fin Reaper. Up to 75 miles out in the heart of the Atlantic, you’ll come up against some of the sea’s most prized creatures, using all your skills and strength to fill the boat. Marvel as you hit the Gulf Stream, bringing with it a perfect storm of pelagic action. While fishing the nearshore wrecks is just as exciting, as you target something delicious for dinner.

A latecomer to the fishing game, Captain Mike Moore has been making up for lost time fishing since 2011. Following his wife’s advice to find a hobby, he became a fishing nut in 2012, and now spends as much as possible on the water. He hopes to share his passion with you, taking you out on his boat to the productive deep seas.

The 34’ Fountain center console is a thing of beauty. Up to 6 guests are welcome aboard to make yourselves at home on the spacious deck, taking advantage of the 360-degree views as you battle it out with monster fish. Capt. Mike will provide plenty of Gatorade and water, so you stay energized and refreshed all day long, but feel free to bring your own drinks and snacks too.

Start the day by going after live bait, which you’ll stock in the vast livewells on board. You’ll then whizz off to the fishing grounds at speeds reaching up to 60 MPH, getting you to the sweet spots in no time.

Cobia, Mahi Mahi, Kingfish, Marlin, Tuna, and Sailfish will be your primary targets in the deep, while shorter trips will see you go after Seabass, Triggerfish, Porgies, Grunts, Groupers, and Snappers. Wherever you go, you’re in for a productive day, so make some space in the freezer for plenty of meat!

Capt. Mike will clean and fillet your catch at the end of your trip at a charge, meaning you can head home with the prospect of a delicious dinner on your plate right away! He’ll even pick you up within a 15-mile radius, so all you need to do is bring yourself aboard with plenty of enthusiasm, and settle in for an incredible day out with Fin Reaper.

Around 2010 my wife suggested I need a hobby... Winter of 2011, I went fishing off the of Turks and Caicos Islands and it was ok – not great. I tried some surf fishing and it was relaxing but there needed to be more to this fishing to get me hooked. Spring of 2012, my wife bought me a little boat and said you will have fun fishing on it and I met a country guy that said he loved to fish, so by that fall I was hooked. November 2012, I did a charter out of Ocracoke Island NC and we caught Wahoo, Blackfin Tuna, and a Sailfish – It was on! I'm hooked. So now I part-time charter because nothing is better than people saying "When can we do this again?" I think it was that feeling of my first Wahoo that never gets old. So its my wife’s fault and I love her so much for showing me there is more to life than just working to pay bills.
