See Ya Outdoors – Saltwater

Now is the best time to book with See Ya Outdoors. Take some time away from your phone, fish some great species, and relax. Captain Bud Wegner, with over a decade of experience, is ready to teach you the tricks of the trade and have a great day out with you.

Hop on board his 20’ Pro-Marine Intruder, with a 115 HP Yamaha engine that will get you to the fishing grounds in no time. This vessel also has great navigational and safety equipment.

Once on board, just sit back and watch and learn how mother nature comes alive on the waterways of “The Old North State”.  People down there smile a lot, and Capt. Bud believes it’s because they are blessed and know it, and get such pleasure from sharing their blessings with others.

You’ll be able to target a huge range of species on these trips, such as Mahi Mahi, Hammerhead Shark, Cobia, Redfish, Speckled Trout, Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel, and many more. After your trip, Capt. Bud will happily fillet your haul for you.

Once on board, you’ll use a range of techniques to hook your trophy catch, from trolling and spinning to bottom fishing. Everyone is welcome to join in, no matter your age or experience level.

All rods and reels are provided, as well as the live bait that’s prepared before the trip. This gives you more time to fish! You are welcome to bring a small cooler of food and drink. Please remember to purchase a fishing license before the day.

Capt. Bud is looking forward to welcoming you on board and having an awesome fishing adventure with you. You’ll make memories that will last a lifetime, have a fantastic day out, and catch your own dinner!

Are you ready for a great day on the water? Then book with See Ya Outdoors! Remember, no bananas on board!

Capt Bud Wegner has been plying these waters for more than 20 years, so if you have questions, ask them. Like most fishermen, he will share with you what he knows and might embellish on things he doesn’t. Just remember the journey to and from the fishing grounds can be as exciting as the fishing itself. He loves to teach new people, so come down and meet him for a great fishing adventure.
