Breakday Charters is based in Atlantic Beach, North Carolina. The local waters have a rich variety of fish species and attract thousands of anglers of all ages and expertise. The crew work hard to help their guests land the best fish, guiding them to the hottest spots in the region. Breakday Charters has an impressive fleet, fully rigged and ready to take you out on the water.

Step aboard the “Long Break”, a spacious 38-foot boat, which comes powered by a 510 Caterpillar engine and has a maximum cruising speed of 26 knots. It can comfortably take up to 6 anglers and is rigged with top-notch navigational electronics, such as a GPS, a fish finder, a VHF radio, and a radar. The vessel is air-conditioned inside, has an enclosed toilet, an ice-box, and a live bait tank. It is also equipped with outriggers, downriggers, and centerriggers.

Breakday Charters offers a great variety of trips. If you don’t feel like fishing or someone from your group wants to cruise those beautiful waters and enjoy the shoreline, an hour-long package is an ideal option. For those, who want to experience some fine angling, the crew have carefully tailored a number of packages to choose from.  Whether you want to go bottom fishing in the Sound for Spot and Sea Mullet, cast in the marsh for Speckled Trout and Drum, bucktail for Flounder,  jig the wrecks for Gag Grouper and Amberjack, live bait for Spanish and King Mackerel, or do battle with the blue water sluggers, Breakday Charter has everything you need.

Your trip with Breakday Charters will include all Penn, Daiwa, and Shimano fishing equipment along with live bait and lures. As well as that, you will be provided with the fishing licenses and after the trip, the catch will be cleaned and filleted for you to take home. You only need to grab your sunglasses, hat, sunscreen, food, and drinks.

Forget work, just enjoy your time on the stunning waters of North Carolina with Breakday Charters - your hooks are baited!

With a lifetime of fishing experience ranging from babbling Mountain Trout Streams to Gulf Stream waters my love for fishing has been with me since the age of 5. After graduation from college with a degree in Biology my first post school job brought money and my first of many boats opening up a whole new chapter in my fishing story. I enjoy all manners of angling and have always enjoyed fishing and sharing that experience with others. It was always nice to be the one catching, but I soon developed a love for putting other people on fish and seeing the joy it brings to their soul. It was this love that brought me to leave my well paying manufacturing job to earn my living on the water guiding and chartering fishing trips.

Had a great half day trolling trip for Spanish mackerel. The bite was good early. It shutdown toward the end of the trip but appreciated the effort by Captain and crew to switch up tactics and incite a bite.

We actually went on the 22’ boat as our party was reduced to two.  We had a great time!  Captain Justin could not have been more helpful, pleasant and professional.  We are looking forward to our next trip!
