Risky Business Sportfishing is based at the famous Oregon Inlet Fishing Center, which means they’re in the epicenter of the state’s fishery! In these parts, the bite is excellent, and when you experience it, it will be difficult for you to come back to land. Captain Jamie Wescott was born into a family of fishermen, so he has a lifetime of experience in these waters.

Your fishing platform is a spacious 45’ Guimond saltwater fishing boat powered by a 600 HP Cummins engine with the capacity to take out up to 6 people. With 6 chairs in the cockpit, table bench seats, and bunk beds, the vessel is comfortable and roomy. There is also a private toilet in the cabin for your convenience.

Quality rods, reels, and tackle will be waiting for you on board, as well as live bait and a wide range of artificial lures. Capt. Jamie will provide you will a fishing license, so all you need to do is hop aboard! Kids also enjoy these trips and this is a great chance to bond with them over a passion you share.

Risky Business has top-range electronics, including two GPS systems, a color chart plotter, a digital sounder, and a radar. This puts you in the best position to troll for Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish and fish with live bait for Amberjack. You can also sight cast for huge Cobia, and fish the wrecks and bottom structures for Black Seabass, Triggerfish, and Grouper.

As you can see, you’ll be fully equipped to go out and catch your next trophy, and you’re free to do that with your family or with a few of your best angling friends.

Join Risky Business Sportfishing on your newest adventure. Nothing’s risky with this charter, aside from its name, so fish on!
