Bounty Hunter Guide Service 25' CC

Bounty Hunter Guide Service welcomes you to Morehead City, North Carolina! Hop aboard Captain Will Jones’ new boat perfect for ocean fishing and have lots of fun as you search inshore, nearshore, as well as offshore waters. This area’s got plenty on offer when it comes to prized fish, so pick a day and start your next fishing adventure!

You’ll be using a 25’ Bluewater Sportfishing Boats center console that can sit up to 4 guests. She uses all the best navigation technology and has got a super deep V hull, flat deck, open bow, and giant livewell that can keep lots of bait alive all day. Powered by a 300 HP Suzuki outboard, she will have you get around comfortably and quickly. The Bluewater is the perfect platform for wreck hopping, bottom fishing, Albie fly fishing, Mackerel catching, or fishing those windy days on the mighty Neuse River for old Drum, when you have to sling bait. The boat also features outriggers and an ice-box.

Some of the many species you’ll target are Amberjack, False Albacore, King Mackerel, Shark, Bonito, Black Seabass, and Flounder. You’ll also have the chance to try out various fishing techniques on light tackle. You can bottom and deep sea fish, troll, spin, jig, pop, as well as fly fish and drift fish. The captain encourages releasing the catch but if you want to, you can keep it and take it home. Kids over 4 can also come aboard.

Captain Will covers you for all the fishing gear, bait, licenses, as well as fly fishing equipment. He can also clean and fillet your catch and he’ll appreciate tips for the work. You should only bring your favorite food and drinks before departing.

Come and have a memorable fishing experience with Bounty Hunter Guide Service!

    In the fall, as coastal waters cool, baitfish flood out of the local inlets and the predator fish along the beaches responds with feeding frenzies that can be epic at times! Running the beaches looking for birds and/or feeding fish is the name of the game. Fly and light tackle junkies everywhere flock to this area to chase False Albacore because it is such a hard-fighting fish. In the pursuit of the "albies", you'll often find shots at Spanish and King Mackerel, Bluefish, and giant Redfish as well!
