Seas The Sting

Welcome to Wrightsville Beach! Whether you’re a professional angler, a serious spearfisherman, or a family with young children creating memories on the water, Seas The Sting will surely get it done on the ocean blue. As a family-owned, and operated business for over 10 years out of Wrightsville Beach, creating valuable, and memorable experiences is of the utmost importance. Don’t worry about a thing!

Get comfortable on a Luhrs SX Express Sportfisher boat, repowered in 2018 with two twin Caterpillar engines. This vessel also features Simrad electronics, Simrad Chart Plotter, Radar and Color Sounder, Simrad 4G radar, Simrad VHF, and Simrad GPS. The cockpit is open and spacious with two ladder access points to the tuna tower with open bench seating, a full functioning galley, and head, renovated to house everything needed for a full day of fishing. All fishing gear, tackle, bait, state and federal fishing licenses, and coast guard safety equipment are provided.

Now let’s picture yourself 60 miles offshore, the boat is trolling, the outriggers are down, the sun is warm, and the ocean is aqua, and clear as far as you can see. Your ears perk up from a few clicks from a Penn International 50W in reach when that rod just starts screaming! You have a stud Bull Mahi on the line! Feeling the power of this fish pulling line, your fighting to get some line back, it’s pulling line, and you’re in an epic battle! You’re not alone! Seas The Sting has a full crew on deck coaching, communicating, and on the ready to assist boating that Mahi! Fresh bait on the ready to rehook, and get you back on the rod for more fun! Don’t worry about a thing when the killbox is full, all fish will be cleaned and filleted!

What memory will you book today?!
