Hot Pursuit Fishing Charters is new to the charter world but certainly not new to fishing. Captain Chris welcomes you to Sneads Ferry, North Carolina, and offers you an enjoyable and productive fishing trip full of fun. This USCG-licensed captain has been fishing the coastal waters off NC for over 20 years and knows exactly where the fish are. Nearshore or offshore, this crew will do its best to make your day on the water memorable.

Your adventure takes place on a 35’ Pursuit center console powered by twin 350 HP Yamaha engines which will get you to the fishing grounds in no time. She has all the latest safety gear, a toilet, and some of the best fishing technology available on the market, including a sonar and electric trolling motor. The boat also has a custom fighting chair for ultimate comfort and security when battling larger pelagic species.

In shallow waters, you can target Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, and many more prized species. For those who prefer deep waters, you can chase Mahi Mahi, King and Spanish Mackerel, Great Barracuda, Amberjack, and possibly even Sailfish. The crew applies a wide range of techniques along with the use of downriggers, outriggers, and live bait to ensure you have the best chance of landing the fish of a lifetime.

Whether you’re a novice or experienced angler, the crew welcomes everybody aboard. The ultimate goal is to make sure you have a safe and memorable fishing adventure. For 4 hour trips, there is no age minimum and families with younger kids are encouraged to join in. For longer charters, the captain recommends that kids be at least 8 years old.

Great group to fish with for a Stream trip. Had to run around some storms but the fishing was very good. Heading out we stopped short to let a front move off the break and did some bottom fishing. Found some Groupers, Vermillion snappers, grunts, and trigger fish, then located Wahoo and King high speed trolling about 60 miles out. Spring fishing is here!
