Blue Heron Guide Service and Captain Jim Hardy welcome you to Hampstead, North Carolina. Captain Jim is a U.S. Coast Guard certified captain who grew up in Virginia with a fishing pole in his hand. He got the fishing bug when he was five and hasn’t been the same ever since. Captain Jim invites you to join him on the water and hopes to share that obsession with you the moment you step on his boat! As your guide, his goal is to provide you with the best opportunity to catch fish on your trip.

Your adventure takes place on a 23’ KenCraft Bay Rider 239 boat that can take up to 6 guests. It’s powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine and uses Garmin GPS and fishfinder for efficient navigation, along with a VHF radio. The boat is equipped with a wireless trolling motor, a livewell, and downriggers.

The species you’ll be chasing include Mackerel, Flounder, Bonito, False Albacore, Speckled Trout, and more. To catch them, you can bottom fish, jig, troll, spin, pop, and drift fish. You can use everything from live and cut bait to artificial lures based on your comfort level, experience, and the weather. Captain Jim is a conservation-minded angler, but has no objection to keeping some catch for dinner.

The only things you’ll need for the trip are your favorite snacks and drinks, the captain takes care of everything else.

This is about you and your family. You and Captain Jim are a team! Before every trip, you’ll discuss what you hope to get out of the trip and he’ll do everything possible to cater to those wants, based on your experience and the time of the fishing season. The weather and time of year always play a factor in the game plan, but the captain wants you to have as much input into your trip as possible.

This is your unique experience the captain will do everything he can to make great memories!
