Righteous Fishing welcomes you to Wanchese, NC! Captain Lewis will take you on a fishing trip you’ll never forget. Whether you want to get an exciting ocean adventure or a more laid-back trip around the sound, you’ll find everything you need right here. Anglers of all skill levels are welcome to join, so bring your favorite people along and start casting!

You’ll be fishing on a 26’ Privateer boat that’s powered by a 300 HP Suzuki engine. There’s enough room for 6 guests to join. This center console is equipped with navigational and safety gear, a live bait tank, and a cooler.

When Capt. Lewis isn’t running fishing charters, from fall to spring, this boat is used as his commercial fishing boat. During this time, he uses this boat to hook and line fish for Grouper, Snapper, Kingfish, Tilefish, and Amberjack. These are all the species you can catch during your trip as well!

It’s a great way to get an experience of fishing from a commercial boat. The only difference is you get to keep the catch. Usually, Captain Lewis sells his catch to O’Neils Seafood, and from there it makes its way to fish markets, grocery stores, and restaurants around the world.

All fishing equipment is covered, so you just need to pack your snacks and drinks and come aboard Righteous Fishing!

Captain Lewis brings a lifetime of experience to Waymaker Charters and Tours. A self-proclaimed “marina rat,” Captain Lewis spent his childhood on the water boating, fishing, and surfing. When’s he’s not guiding tours for Waymaker, Captain Lewis splits his time between commercial fishing, surfing, and spending time with his three children. If you’re lucky, you might even get to hear the captain strum a tune on the ukulele for you.
