From targeting trophy fish to enjoying a family-fun adventure on the water, Marker23 Inshore Adventures is your safe bet! Experience everything the rivers and coastal waters around Topsail Island have to offer and have lots of fun chasing the lovely local species. Captain Ozzy is waiting for you in North Topsail Beach, North Carolina to come aboard and have a fishing experience you’ll surely remember for a long time.

Your trip will start on a 20’ Bayrider saltwater fishing boat that can sit up to 4 anglers. It runs on a 115 HP Johnson engine with a maximum cruising speed of 43 knots, uses all the quality navigation technology, and features a wireless trolling motor and livewell.

Using light tackle, you and the captain will be fishing for Black Drum, Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, and Flounder. You can keep all the fish you catch (within limits) and enjoy some tasty meals when you get back home, but you’re also free to release your catch back to the water. Kids can join the trip, so bring them as well and have some wonderful time together in nature.

Captain Ozzy will provide you with absolutely everything you’ll need for your trip, from the fishing gear to catch cleaning to snacks and drinks to fishing licenses.

Come to North Topsail Beach and have a first-rate angling experience with Marker23 Inshore Adventures!
