One of our top picks in Atlantic Beach. 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!

As a team building outing for our leadership team, we booked this half-day trip near shore. It was excellent. Very professional crew and great boat! Thank you Mike and Herb. We caught plenty of Spanish Mackerel, a Blue fish and a number of smaller Tuna. It was a great trip. Looking forward to going back out with them to the Gulf Stream.

We had a great time. Everything was ready. The boat was immaculate condition despite the season being well underway. They worked hard to find the fish. We caught more fish than anyone else who we saw. We will be going again with Mike and Herb.

Absoulty perfect day for fishing. Left that morning. Smooth ride out. Very spacious cabin. Trolled for mahi all day. Caught only 1 and 2 got off. Not the captains fault. He did everything possible to catch fish including staying 2 hours over to try and get some bites. They just weren’t bitting. When we got back that after noon we found out that no one caught more than 2 all day. If we had landed the 2 that got off we would have been top boat of the day. I can’t speak highly enough of captain Mike. Super good guy and great fisherman. I will go with him again in the fall and absoulty recommend him to everyone.
