FinchasersUSA Charters

The quaint community of Beaufort, North Carolina, offers some diverse fishing opportunities in its area. When you swing by, contact FinchasersUSA Charters and they’ll provide a fishing trip for you. Whether you want an active adventure, or simply the chance to bag some fresh fish, they’ll meet your needs. Captain Jack Jackson will make sure you have a good time while he’s showing you around.

You’ll be going after your fish aboard a 19’ Intruder skiff that can easily accommodate 3 guests per trip. The boat is fitted with a single Suzuki engine that can reach a top speed of 45 knots. You’ll be going from one hot spot to another in no time. Also, for a more tactful approach on the flats, the vessel is equipped with a wireless trolling motor and a power pole shallow water anchor.

This charter covers several fishing zones of the area like the local rivers, flats, inshore, and nearshore areas that include reef and wreck locations. With such a wide range of water available, the fish bite throughout the whole year. You may encounter Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Striped Bass, and Sheepshead, just to name a few. If it’s a trophy that you’re after, North Carolina is home to some of the largest Redfish in the world, but fishing for these giant tackle busters is only available in August and September.

You don’t have to worry about the fishing gear and lures, as they are provided with the trip. If you would like to use live bait, let Capt. Jack know and he will catch some during your trip. As for your North Carolina fishing license, the charter’s got you covered. The crew gives cool water for refreshments, you can bring snacks and sunscreen. In case you get lucky, you can keep your catch, and the crew will help you clean it. Families with children are welcome.

If you’re itching for some quality fishing, let FinchasersUSA Charters help you out!
