Sea Jay Fishing Charters

Looking to go fishing in Wanchese? Then, Sea Jay Fishing Charters has a trip with your name on it! With Captain Ryan at the helm of his 24’ Privateer you’re in knowledgeable and experienced hands.

Enjoy a 4-hour morning or evening trip onboard with all bait and tackle supplied. No need to worry about experience. From beginner to advanced skills we will have a good time. Redfish, Speckled Trout, Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, Whiting, Flounder, and more are in the cards if conditions are right. For these species, you’re likely to troll and bottom fish using light or heavy tackle.

Your vessel for the day is a 24’ Privateer that holds up to 6 passengers. It has all the essentials no fishing machine can run without. You’ll find rods,
reels, and tackle waiting for you, along with lures.

You can’t go wrong when you bring snacks, drinks, sunglasses, and sunscreen (non-spray). Alcohol is allowed in moderation, but try to avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles. Some species might be protected or require a tag to keep them, so make sure you know what to expect.

Now and then, the fish might get away, but a day on the water never should. So make it happen with Sea Jay Fishing Charters!

I'm Captain Ryan Tyler, and I was born and raised in beautiful North Carolina. I grew up working on the water my whole life, from commercial fishing to mating on many boats to finally getting my own boat and Captain's license. I love being on the water, and my passion is seeing my customers have a good day as well.
