The vessel also boasts a fully heated and air-conditioned interior complete with galley, cabin, bathroom, and plenty of space to relax in between bites either down below deck or up high on the flybridge.

Capt. Troy offers a variety of trips, starting with family-friendly inshore and nearshore days targeting Flounder, Croaker, and Drum. Trips range all the way up to offshore marathons heading out to the Gulf Stream to test your strength and resolve again huge Blue and White Marlin, as well as Yellowfin and sometimes even Bluefin Tuna!

With such a range of trips, you will naturally be offered an armory of equipment tailored to the trip you have chosen. Bottom fishing, trolling, spinning, popping, jigging, kite fishing and more – whatever your style, you are sure to find a trip just right for you!

    First, you’ll board at 8 a.m. and head 20 miles offshore to one of the 3 Offshore Towers on the Outer Banks. You’ll target Amberjack by jigging or using live bait (if it’s available). Amberjack are one of the ocean’s hardest pulling fish. You’ll also target Barracuda, Triggerfish, King Mackerel, other reef species, and maybe even Mahi Mahi. Then we will return inshore to troll for Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, and Bluefish. If you wish, we can take the first hour or 2 for Bluefish inshore trolling.
