Grandslam Inshore Fishing Charters

Explore the waters around Carolina Beach in North Carolina and have a great fishing experience with Grandslam Inshore Fishing Charters. Explore inshore waters, rivers, or flats for many different species while enjoying the beautiful natural sights this area offers. Captain Mason Porter will be your host and he’ll do everything to make your trip the best possible.

Your journey starts on a 21’ Key West skiff boat that can accommodate up to 6 anglers. It runs on a 115 HP Yamaha engine with a maximum speed of 40 knots and uses quality GPS and fishfinder systems for safe navigation. There’s an onboard livewell you can use to store your fish and drinks throughout the trip.

You’ll do your fishing with light tackle, and will have the chance to try your skills at bottom fishing, spinning, jigging, as well as popping. You can keep all the fish you catch and take it home so you can enjoy delicious meals. Alternatively, you can just return it back to the water. Remember that the boat’s kid-friendly, so feel free to bring them as well and have even more fun on your trip.

All the fishing gear will be waiting for you when you arrive on the boat. Captain Mason provides you with rods, reels, tackle, as well as live bait and lures. You don’t have to worry about fishing licenses either, because he’s got you covered for that as well. The only thing you should bring before you depart is a cooler with some drinks and snacks or lunch in case you get hungry.

Book yourself a sea adventure with Grandslam Inshore Fishing Charters and spend a day full of fishing excitement surrounded by beautiful nature.

December 2022 Report
December 2022 Report
November 25, 2022
December is one of the best months of the year for speckled trout. We typically use live bait for speckled trout but can also throw artificial baits to these fish. If you are looking for a gator trout, now is the time. Red Drum and black drum are also still hanging around in their typical winter holes. We are fishing creeks and flats searching for warmer water temps in December. Book your trip with me today and ill see you on the water!!
