NC Inshore Fishing Charters and Captain Mike Hoffman welcome you to Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. Capt. 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 19’ Jones Brothers flats boat that can accommodate 3 guests. It runs on a 115 HP Yamaha 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.

Some of the species you’ll encounter include Spotted Seatrout, Blacktip Shark, Bluefish, and Redfish. Using both light and heavy tackle, you’ll catch them by spinning, jigging, and drift fishing. You get to keep and take home all the fish you catch.

Captain Mike will have you covered for fishing licenses, all the fishing gear, live bait, and lures, and he’ll also clean your catch. Before you depart, you should just make sure you have some food and drinks packed.

Pay a visit to Wrightsville Beach and have a lovely fishing adventure with NC Inshore Fishing Charters!
