Finishline Sportfishing offer first class sportfishing out of Atlantic Beach, North Carolina, on the legendary Jarett bay sport fishing boat “Finishline”. Located at the Sea Water Marina on the Atlantic Beach causeway, the boat is just a short drive from local cities New Bern and Jacksonville and is only minutes away from some of the East Coast’s best sport fishing.

Finishline is a top of the range 54 ft Jarett bay yacht that was lovingly restored in 2012 with all the modern necessities for a comfortable and successful sport fishing charter. With powerful twin Lugger engines, Finishline can reach speeds of almost 30 knots, making her a fast boat for her size and ensuring you will be able to reach the fishing grounds in good time. Equipped with top of the range Garmin electronics, as well as outriggers, a fighting chair, and a spacious livewell, the boat is perfect both for charter trips and tournament fishing. She is also very comfortable, with an air conditioned interior, a custom installed TV and sound system, two extremely clean rest rooms, and a flybridge for excellent views of the surrounding waters.

Captain Mike Kennedy is an experienced fisherman who offers a variety of trips on his boat, ranging from six hour nearshore trolling trips targeting King Mackerel, Bluefish, Amberjack, and Barracuda, to full day excursions out into the gulf stream, where you could hook Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi and more. All the rods, reels and tackle you need for the trip are provided, so all you need to bring is some snacks and drinks to keep you fueled for the adventure of a lifetime!
