Xcessive Risk Sportfishing

Xcessive Risk Sportfishing is dedicated to providing you with exciting and memorable fishing adventures off the beautiful North Carolina coast.  From nearshore to the deep blue waters of the Gulf Stream, its professional crew will ensure safe and enjoyable experiences each and every trip. Come to Carolina Beach, North Carolina and have a wonderful time on the water with Captain Clint Richardson and Xcessive Risk Sportfishing!

Your trip will start on a 33’ Contender center console that can sit up to 5 guests. Running on two 300 HP Yamaha F300 engines and featuring comprehensive navigation technology, the boat will allow you a safe and quick trip to the fish and back. It’s also equipped with downriggers, outriggers, spearfishing gear, and a livewell. Also, a first mate will be joining the trip to give you any help you may need.

You can chase Mahi Mahi, Broomtail Grouper, Red Snapper, Cobia, Mackerel, and many more. You can catch them by bottom, deep sea, and kite fishing, as well as trolling and spinning, all using both light and heavy tackle. You can keep all your fish and take it home, but if you prefer to release it, you’re free to do so. The captain likes having a family atmosphere on board, so feel free to bring your kids as well.

Captain Clint will provide you with all the fishing gear, bait, and fishing licenses. He’ll also clean and fillet your catch for no extra charge, except for bottom fish which are charged at $1 per lb. Also, remember that the first mate works for a customary 20% tip. For your trip, you should only bring your favorite snacks and drinks.

Come aboard and have a memorable fishing experience with Xcessive Risk Sportfishing!
