Marina Street
Carolina Beach NC, United States

If you’re looking for a charter that can provide service to both beginner anglers and families with kids, along with serious sea wolves looking for an adrenaline-rushing fight, look no further than Clearlyhooked fishing charters. They’ll go above and beyond to put you on the fish and make sure you have the best experience with them possible!

Join them aboard their 28’ long Contender, a center console built in 2015. She can hold up to 6 anglers in comfort, without tangling lines. She’s got quite the kick behind her, with twin Yamaha engines outputting a total of 600 HP. That allows her to develop a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots, so you won’t waste any time traveling to the fishing grounds! Outriggers and a live bait well are available on board, to let you focus on the fish and give you an edge over your prey.

Your teacher and assistant on this fishing adventure will be Captain Austin Eubank. He’s got over two decades of fishing experience under his tackle belt, with multiple Kingfish tournaments wins. With his know-how and teaching abilities, you’ll set off after Sailfish, Marlins, King and Spanish Mackerel, Groupers, Snappers, Black Seabass, Amberjacks, Cobias, and many other species. You’ll get the chance to use a variety of techniques like spinning, jigging, and popping with light tackle, trolling, bottom fishing, or even kite fishing.

Clearlyhooked fishing charters have no minimum age policy for kids and invite anglers of all ages to come aboard. Captain Austin will clean and fillet your catch free of charge, if the total weight is under 70 pounds. Above that, a small fee is applied per pound. Pickup is available for clients under 10 miles away, anything further than that a flat $50 rate is charged.

Captain Clint is knowledgeable,  kind, and works well with my inexperience. The trip was great and I would definitely go again with Clearly Hooked! We averaged catching a fish every 8 minutes.
