Come aboard and enjoy a day of fishing together with Sounds Good Charters! You’ll have lots of fun exploring the inshore waters of Wanchese, North Carolina and chasing many different species that dwell in the area. Your Captain will give you all the help needed for making a good catch and see that you have the best possible time on the water. Join him and have a memorable fishing trip in Wanchese!

The boat you’ll use is a 20’ Maycraft center console with plenty of space for up to 4 guests. It’s powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine and uses GPS, fishfinder, and radio to help you navigate the water safely and quickly. The boat’s also got an ice-box to store your drinks and food as well as a livewell to provide you with live bait.

Some of the many species that you can chase on your trip are Flounder, Redfish, Sheepshead, Cobia, Striped Bass, and Speckled Trout. You’ll attract them by bottom fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, popping, and drift fishing, all using light tackle. Kids are welcome to join aboard and you can keep all the fish you catch.

The captain will provide all the needed rods, reels, tackle, live bait, lures, as well as fishing licenses, so the only things you should bring before leaving are the snacks and drinks of your choice.

Visit Sounds Good Charters and enjoy a lovely day on the water!
