Ali-Kat Sportfishing

Ali Kat Sportfishing is your premier power catamaran sportfishing charter on the Crystal Coast. Ran by the only IGFA Certified Saltwater Captain in this area, Capt. Jason Temple is ready to take you fishing. Now with IGFA certified scales and measuring devices, we can do anything from a nice day inshore to a trip designed to target and hunt for an IGFA Offshore Slam. Based out of Emerald Isle, North Carolina, Captain Jason Temple offers options to launch from Morehead City to Emerald Isle and Cedar Point – nothing is out of reach for the Ali Kat boats.

Want to fish a tournament? You can do that too! Charter the captain’s boat for your next tournament. Capt. Jason has won several tournament championships fishing in these very waters. Send him a private message to inquire about tournament availability.

Ali Kat Sportfishing specializes in inshore, nearshore, and offshore trips and can put your group on the fish. From Speckled Trout, Red Drum, and Flounder to Spanish and King Mackerel, the crew will go above and beyond to target what you wish. If you want more action, venture out to the deep blue for Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, and Tuna, as well as the bottom fishing buffet the coast has to offer: Seabass, Trigger, Grouper, and Snapper, just to name a few.

With over 30 years of experience, Captain Jason Temple will put your group on the fish. He can accommodate 2 - 6 people on his 30’ Twin Vee PowerCat. The boat is powered by twin 300 HP Suzuki engines, rigged extensively with navigation electronics, and equipped with various gear to make your chase more efficient and fun. It also features a toilet and an ice box.

For your trip, you should only bring the snacks and drinks of your choice, as the captain will take care of all the fishing equipment and licenses.

Ali Kat Sportfishing is dedicated to providing your group with a memorable trip, contact the captain today, and he will customize a trip for you
