Dockside Fishing Charters

Dockside Fishing Charters and Captain Hunter Williams welcome you for a fishing adventure in North Carolina! Starting out of Oak Island, you will have a fun and safe trip to the area’s inshore and nearshore water as well as reefs. These grounds are fish-rich as well as beautiful and Captain Hunter knows the best places for making a catch. Join him aboard and have a great time on the water!

The boat you will be using for your trip is a 23’ Sportsman bay boat. It can sit up to 4 guests and is powered by a 150 HP 2017 Yamaha engine that can reach a speed of 40 knots. The boat uses modern GPS, fishfinder, as well as radio systems to keep you safe and on the right course all the time. It also features a wireless trolling motor for more discrete fishing and a livewell to provide you with live bait.

Some of the many species you can target on your trip include Cobia, Flounder, Sheepshead, King and Spanish Mackerel, and Redfish. To attract them, you will use light tackle trolling and drifting. You can either keep or release the fish you catch and you are also welcome to bring kids on your trip.

Captain Hunter provides you with all the fishing tackle, live bait, and lures. He also covers you for fishing licenses and catch cleaning. Before you start your trip, you should only bring the food and drinks of your choice.

Join Dockside Fishing Charters and have a fun-packed trip in North Carolina!
