Drayke Outfitters

Captain Bradley will be your guide, bringing aboard years of angling experience.

You’re likely to go after Spanish Mackerel, Speckled Trout, Striped Bass, Whiting, Cobia, Flounder, Sheepshead, Bluefish, Redfish, Black Drum, and more. Capt. Bradley can also have you on a duck hunt during season. 

Rods, reels, and tackle are provided, along with lures. The charter boat covers your fishing license, so all you have to do is show up ready for a good time! Be mindful that some species may have special rules or limited seasons. If you don’t know what to expect, ask the captain.

It’s never a bad idea to bring bottled water, sunscreen (non-spray), and sunglasses. If you’d like to bring other drinks, just ask.

Member since February 2022
Captain Bradley was born and raised in North Carolina and he spent much of this time in Atlantic Beach and Wrightsville Beach as well as fishing professionally and commercially in Puerto Rico for many years. This gives him a competitive edge over many other captains. Captain Bradley decided to go independent and start his first fishing charter business in 2017. He says he is a waterman and he couldn’t see himself doing anything other than fishing.
