Spec Fever Guide Service - Oriental

Midyette St
Oriental NC, United States

Spec Fever Guide Service is the local authority on light tackle and fly fishing charters in North Carolina. Fishing out of New Bern, Oriental, and the Crystal Coast, Captain Gary Dubiel knows the best techniques for catching monster fish.

Join renowned local captain Gary Dubiel aboard his 22 ft boat to explore the waters around Oriental, “The Sailing Capital of North Carolina”. Up to three anglers can fish comfortably off this boat as they explore the clean and calm waters of the Neuse River and its surroundings. With all the fixtures needed to get to the best fishing spot, including a fishfinder, GPS, trolling motor, and anchoring system, this boat is perfect for navigating the local waterways.

Fishing from the quaint village of Oriental, you will be able to explore the lower Neuse River, America’s widest river, for many saltwater fish. Come here in the fall, and you will be in with a chance of catching a huge Bull Redfish, a species Captain Gary has spent many years targeting in new and innovative ways. Fishing here is good all year round, though. Speckled Trout, Weakfish, Black Drum, Sheepshead, and Flounder can all be caught here. Take your pick between targeting these fish on the fly or with light tackle and Spec Fever Guide Service will take you to the best local fish holes, showing you how to get the most out of the local fishery with lures and fly.

All tackle and lures are supplied in the trip price. Just bring along any food and beverages you would like during your trip and get ready for an enjoyable day on the water.

About the Captain

Gary Dubiel
Oriental, North Carolina, United States
Member since May 2014
Captain Gary Dubiel started fishing when he learned to walk. As a child, he spent many days with his dad and grandfathers on the water. He loved it then and never stopped! Captain Gary is constantly looking for new ways of catching the fish he targets. The originator of the popping cork craze, he invented the Float-n-Fly rig for giant Red Drum on the Neuse River and Pamlico Sound. Does his name sound familiar? You could well have seen him on ESPN 2, UNC-TV, NBC Sports, WFN, the Discovery Channel (Europe), the Sportsman Channel, or many other local or national fishing shows. Otherwise, you might know him from the Saltwater Sportsman's National Seminar Series or any major sportfishing magazine.
