Breadman Ventures Guide Service

Based in Sneads Ferry, NC, Breadman Ventures Guide Service offers year-round adventures! Join Captain Allen, who’s been fishing these waters his entire life. Besides guiding fishing trips, he’s also participated in lots of fishing tournaments, so he knows this sport from every different angle, and has many tips and tricks to share.

You’ll be fishing on a 22’ Simmons Custom Boat that accommodates up to 4 guests. This flats boat is powered by a 300 HP Mercury engine and quickly reaches high speed, so you’ll get to your fishing spot in no time. The boat also has a wireless trolling motor, dual Power Poles, Bob’s Jackplate and navigational electronics.

Captain Allen specializes in catching Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder in the shallow backwaters of the area. You’ll mainly use the light tackle spinning technique and when in season, Flounder gigging. You can release the catch or choose to keep it if you’re going to eat it later.

All fishing equipment is included in the price, as well as your fishing licenses. You can bring your food, drinks, and sun protection. If you have any special requests, get in touch with the captain before the trip.

Whether you are a beginner, hardcore, or just looking for a relaxing day on the water, Breadman Ventures can customize a trip to meet your needs. Just pick a date! Trips are also available on the Neuse and Pamlico for Rockfish, Speckled Trout, and Redfish.

I have been fishing the coastal waters of NC both recreationally and commercially my entire life. I now run lite tackle inshore guided trips and am based out of the Topsail Area targeting redfish and speckled trout with artificial lures. Trips are also available on the Neuse River and Pamlico Sound. I also compete on the redfish tournament trails from here to Louisiana and have many wins and top finishes under my belt. Breadman Ventures Guide Service has also been featured in a multitude of publications both regional and nationally over the years. Articles ranging anywhere from targeting trophy speckled trout to flounder gigging.
