Southern Sun Guides – Catfishing

Nighttime Catfishing is something every angler should experience at least once! Southern Sun Guides is here to make sure you have that experience. Join Captain Chad in Roanoke Rapids for a nighttime fishing adventure. Whether you’re an experienced angler or a complete novice, you can enjoy this trip.

It’s not just about catching fish. These adventures are different because you’re setting off when most anglers are done for the day. You don’t rely on your sight as much as on your hearing. And when everything seems quiet and peaceful, you feel the strong pull from the bottom. The battle begins.

The trips are available from June till the end of the year. You can go after Blue and Channel Catfish using all kinds of techniques, such as drift fishing, bottom fishing, spinning, and more. After the trip, you can keep the catch and prepare a tasty meal for tomorrow’s lunch.

You’ll be fishing on a 19’ Lowe boat that accommodates up to 4 guests. The boat is powered by a 90 HP Yamaha engine, features navigational electronics, safety gear, and a live bait tank. Kids are also welcome to join on the boat, as it offers a safe and reliable ride.

All fishing equipment is covered by Capt. Chad. You’ll need to cover your fishing license and pack you food and drinks.

Nighttime fishing is an adventure you shouldn’t miss. With Southern Sun Guides, it’s never been easier to get one!
