Mike specializes in backwater fishing but he’s always on top of the game whatever it may be by keeping a close track of where the fish is. From the shallow flats and bays to the lakes and rivers, NC Inshore Fishing Charters has what you need to make an amazing fishing trip!

You’ll fish from a 22ft Jones Brothers flats boat that can accommodate 6 guests. It runs on a 115 HP sazuki

engine and is equipped with excellent navigation technology, livewell, as well as a wireless trolling motor. There will also be an ice-box to store all your fish and drinks.
