Top Shelf Sport Fishing is a veteran-owned and operated fishing charter, based in Atlantic Beach, NC. Captain Jon is an expert when it comes to fishing the Atlantic Ocean, and he’s looking for anything from Blue Marlin to Bluefish. The guests who participate and get hands-on while on a charter, according to Jon, will have a more satisfying fishing experience. He is regarded as one of the greatest Captains on the Crystal Coast, and he will always give his all and go above and beyond to make your fishing excursion the one you’ll remember.
The boat you’ll be fishing from is a 50’ Hatters that accommodates up to 6 guests. This sport fisher is powered by two 650 HP Cat diesel engines and has a 23 knot cruise speed. Enjoy the luxurious interior with soft sofas and chairs. The yacht also has clean toilets, cutting-edge gadgets, satellite radio, a flat-screen TV, heating, and air conditioning. First-aid and AED certifications are held by this professional and drug-free team.
Choose between nearshore and deep-sea fishing trips. The first one will get you Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, and possibly sharks, while the deep-sea adventure takes you to more challenging targets, such as Yellowfin Tuna, Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and billfish.
All fishing equipment and licenses are covered by the crew. You get to keep the catch and the crew will clean it for you at the cost of 80 cents per pound. Bring your food, drinks, and sun protection. Please remember our mates work for tips. 15-20% is customary.
