Sea Hound Fishing Charters

Just booked!

Head out on the water out of Carolina Beach with Sea Hound Fishing Charters and have an adventure you won’t forget! Captain Michael King grew up fishing, and he has over 30 years of experience. That, combined with his extensive knowledge of the area, makes for an amazing excursion off the coast of North Carolina.

You’ll head out on his 56’ Custom Carolina sportfishing boat, powered by twin 800 HP engines, making it a beast on the water! The boat has everything you need for a safe and convenient outing, including a toilet, AC, sitting area, and a multimedia system. Combined with top-notch fishing equipment and being the only boat in the area to have Seakeeper installed to eliminate boat roll, this is bound to be an epic trip.

The waters here are beautiful, but they also hide some real monsters in their depths. You’ll come across a variety of fish species that live in the area, and the captain and his first mate will do everything they can to help you reel ‘em in. Cobia, Mahi Mahi, Kingfish, Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, Wahoo, Barracuda, and Spanish Mackerel are all possible targets.

You’ll be fishing with top-of-the-line equipment, including custom rods, Penn reels, and tackle. Depending on the trip and your wishes, Capt. Michael can provide you with live bait. The first mate will clean your catch at the end of the trip for $1 per pound. He works for tips, so gratuity is encouraged.

Take your kids on a fishing trip of a lifetime, as children of all ages are welcome on board. You’ll have some fun and make great new family memories. All you need to bring is some food, drinks, sunscreen, sunglasses, hats, and seasickness medication, and you’re all set!

Come and enjoy a day of fun on the waters of North Carolina with Sea Hound Fishing Charters!

I come from a family of fishermen and grew up fishing with them. Later, I worked as a mate on numerous charter and head boats. At the age of 20, I received my 100-ton master license and purchases my first boat to charter, the Class Action. Since that time, I have fished commercially, ran charters, fished the east coast Billfish tournament circuit, and entertained boat owners with their clients from Mexico to Costa Rica, to the Pacific. In 2017, I purchased the Sea Hound and I am based out of Carolina Beach but still run trips from the Outer Banks to Charleston and the Bahamas.
