Capt. Austin's Fishing Adventures

Capt. Austin’s Fishing Adventures is a multi-boat charter operation that runs out of Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. It was formally known as Capt. Brant’s Fishing Adventures that used to operate for over twenty years. Captain Austin Aycock is a skilled friendly angler who knows how to show you a great time on the water. Join in and have a pleasant fishing experience as you discover the area’s offshore waters.

You will start your trip on a 33’ World Cat catamaran that can carry up to 6 guests. Its engine is a 300 HP Yamaha that can reach a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots. For navigation, it uses the latest Simrad GPS and fishfinder technology as well as a radio. The boat has got a private toilet and its onboard fishing gear includes outriggers, downriggers, and a livewell. A first mate will also be joining your trip.

You can target Snapper, Grouper, Barracuda, Wahoo, Kingfish, Black Seabass, Mahi Mahi, and more. You’ll catch them on light and heavy tackle by bottom and deep sea fishing, trolling, jigging, and even kite fishing. You can keep all the fish you catch if you want to and you can bring kids on your trip.

You will only need to bring some snacks and drinks as Captain Austin will take care of everything else. He covers all the tackle, lures, live bait when possible, catch cleaning, as well as fishing license.

Come visit Ocean Isle Beach and have a lovely time on the water with Capt. Austin’s Fishing Adventures!

Captain Austin grew up charter fishing with his uncle around 2010 and started working as a mate for him. He worked with his uncle up until the time he was old enough to obtain his Captain's License and has been running charters ever since. There is nothing Captain Austin enjoys more than putting clients on fish and helping them have a great trip.
