Fish Whistle Chartering

Fish Whistle Chartering offers a wide variety of fishing trips that cater to enthusiast anglers itching for an adventure, as well as families who want to have a relaxing day at sea. So come down to Carolina Beach, NC, and spend your fishing adventure in comfort and style. Under the guidance of experienced Captain Randall Lomax, you’ll surely get a memorable time on the sea.

The charter can take 6 guests at a time. Come aboard Fish Whistle II, which is the Jersey (offshore sport fishing) model from 1975. This vintage beauty was renovated in 2012, and it can bring you out to the sea with style with all the content it provides. There are outriggers, and downriggers available, and you can go after the big bite while sitting on the fighting chair. The boat is 42 feet long and equipped with two Catepillars engines, reaching maximum speeds of 18 knots.

You get to be spoiled for choice with all the species you can go after. The trips cover inshore and offshore locations with reef and wreck hotspots. You can go after your catch with light and heavy tackle, or bottom fishing and deep-sea fishing, among other fishing techniques. The fish is biting more or less the whole year. You can encounter several species of Tuna, Kingfish, or Mahi Mahi, just to name some.

Families with children are welcome. The charter covers your North Carolina fishing license and all the fishing equipment, baits and lures will be ready for you. Just bring your snacks and drinks. You get to enjoy the comforts of the boat as there’s AC, a bathroom, shower, and kitchen. Also, spend some time lounging on the flybridge, or watch some TV during a break. The crew includes a first mate, and they will happily help you with the cleaning and bagging of your catch.

Treat yourself to a fishing experience that combines excitement and comfort at the fishing locations of Carolina Beach. Don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity and contact Fish Whistle Chartering.

I have been a fisherman my entire life. I grew up here in Carolina Beach and I have been fishing these waters for 30+ years. I worked as a mate on both charter and head boats, until I became a Captain, and I've been running a very productive family charter business ever since.
