Discover the best of what the Atlantic Ocean has to offer with Ocean Stinger Fishing Charters, who will take you on an unforgettable sportfishing trip out of Oregon Inlet. With a friendly crew and a specialized sportfishing setup, they will make everyone from first time anglers to avid fishermen and women feel at home and ready to take on the seas.

The Ocean Stinger is a 40 ft Luhrs boat that was built with sportfishing in mind. Powered by a brand new Caterpillar 7.1 engine, the boat can get to the best offshore fishing spots fast and reliably, and its full range of new 2016 Simrad electronics will help the captain locate the very best fishing spots for the day. There are two large livewells on board, as well as tuna tubes for keeping your bait in the best condition, and the boat also features Lee Outriggers. Climb aboard the custom tuna tower to spot activity in the waters below, or relax in the cockpit in air-conditioned comfort. With brand new seating, wifi, and a marine bathroom and shower, you will not have to sacrifice comfort to catch fish.

Ocean Stinger Fishing Charters pride themselves in providing some of the best fishing gear available to their charter guests. Shimano Tiagra and TLD reels are available to use with Shimano rods, and there is also a selection of Penn International rods and reels on board for your enjoyment. With this gear, you can enjoy a wide range of techniques, from trolling and drift fishing to bottom fishing and kite fishing, with possible target species including Blue and White Marlin on longer trips, as well as Bluefin and Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel, Wahoo, Sailfish, Cobia, and many more.

Gear, bait, and lures are provided in the price of all trips with Ocean Stinger Fishing Charters, and the company will also provide you with refreshments on board the boat, state and federal licensing, and a fish filleting service at the end of the trip.

My wife and I had an amazing time with Captain Jesse and Cory. They worked extremely hard to find and get us fish. This was probably the best deep sea charter I’ve ever done and I’ve done many up and down the east coast. Jesse’s knowledge, professionalism and friendliness made this a great experience. Definitely a keeper!
