Grassy Sound Outdoors is based in Hampstead, NC and offers to show you a memorable time on the surrounding waters of New Topsail Inlet. We are convenient to the Greater Wilmington area.

The USCG veteran crew will do its best to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable time on the water. This involves 2 to 10-hour trips, mainly fishing for Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, Snapper, Triggerfish, Grouper, and Seabass, depending on the season and conditions on the day. Be sure to contact the captain in order to set realistic expectations and pick the appropriate trip for your overall goals.

Your fishing adventure starts on a 31’ Cape Horn center console boat that can comfortably take up to 6 anglers. It is fast, dry, comfortable, and a head-turner! Whether you are looking for a laid-back trip on the coast or a hardcore fishing adventure offshore, this is the fishing charter you have been looking for!

All rods, reels, terminal tackle, bait, and fishing licenses are included in the price so you can focus on what really matters, fishing! Fish cleaning service may be available after your trip, but be sure to bring an adequately sized cooler if you will be keeping your catch.

A mate will accompany the charter on 6-hour, 8-hour, and Gulf Stream trips. Please note that the mate works exclusively for tips and 20% of the total trip price is customary.

No glass bottles aboard the vessel.

Please contact the captain directly before booking if you have questions about the rate, availability, or have special considerations.

My love for the ocean was born on Grassy Sound Channel in North Wildwood, New Jersey. My earliest memories were walking out the back door of the "minnow shack," and down a 100 yard pier to board my Grandfather's Penn Yan boat for a flounder trip. This passion led me to a degree in Marine Biology, and a career in the United States Coast Guard. I greatly enjoy helping others make lifelong memories on the water. Whether it is catching lots of fish, seeing turtles and dolphins, or just simply enjoying time out on the water, I strive to provide a safe and enjoyable way to do so! Personally, I enjoy getting offshore and fishing for Mahi and Wahoo. There is nothing like finding the right water conditions after doing your homework and then capitalizing on the bite! Great times have been had bailing Mahi off a weed line and hearing the unforgettable sound of a drag screaming while on the troll!
