Bounty Hunter Guide Service

1648 Island Road
Harkers Island NC, United States

Bounty Hunter Guide Service offers inshore and nearshore fishing charters in the area surrounding Cape Lookout and the Neuse River. They serve Harkers Island, Beaufort, Morehead City, Atlantic Beach, and the rest of North Carolina’s Crystal Coast.

Guiding your experience is Captain Will Jones, a lifelong fisherman who grew up casting lines in these waters. Whether you prefer light tackle or fly fishing, he’ll help you reel in a catch to remember!

Step aboard a 22’ Nautic Star powered by a 225 HP Yamaha engine. This craft is fitted with the latest fishing technology, including GPS, fishfinder, a wireless trolling motor, and a live bait well. There’s room on board for up to four passengers and children are welcome.

While fishing the waters of Cape Lookout you will have the chance to catch a wide variety of species. The local flats, marshes, and creeks are home to Red Drum, Flounder, Speckled Trout, Jack Crevalle, sharks, and more.

If you enjoy catching big fish on light tackle, look no further than fishing for Red Drum in the Neuse River. You can join Capt. Will for six to eight hours and target monster Red Drum weighing 50 lbs and above!

A nearshore trip allows you to cast lines in the ocean, fishing the wrecks and reefs for Spanish Mackerel, False Albacore, Bluefish, and many other species. When the weather allows, you can venture out a little farther and add larger fish to your list, such as Amberjack, Mahi Mahi, Cobia, and King Mackerel.

Bounty Hunter Guide Service provides a fishing license and top of the line gear, featuring the likes of Penn, Shimano, Orvis, and more. You are welcome to keep your catch and Capt. Will can clean and fillet it for you.

Come aboard today for some drag screaming action and a catch to remember!

Although Monday fishing on the river for Giant Red Drum was slow, Wednesday’s Near shore trip surely made up for it! Caught a Cobia and an Amberjack on Wednesday that was exciting and a new experience. Also had a blast catching Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel - came home and had a fish fry for a group of friends! Captain Will worked hard to make our trips memorable. We are “hooked”!!!!
