Reelin Pelican Fishing Charters

4909 Fish Factory Road
Southport NC, United States

Reelin Pelican Fishing Charters invites you on inshore fishing excursions out of Southport, North Carolina. You can explore the surrounding area including Bald Head Island, Oak Island, and further out. Just take your pick from one of the many trip options they offer and you are in for an adventure.

The charter is operated by Captain Robert Capps who is a local to Oak Island and knows these waters like the palm of his hand. He has fished from Nags Head to the Florida Keys, the Bahamas, and even to Mexico. Captain Robert is able to accommodate both novice and experienced anglers, and especially enjoys taking and teaching kids how to fish. 

Captain Robert will take you out on his 24 foot Triton center console boat, originally built in 2006, and restored in 2016. The boat is powered by a 250 HP Yamaha V6 3.3 engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 42 knots. This makes it super fast and reliable on the water and guarantees a speedy change of productive spots.

The boat is equipped with the necessary electronic and safety equipment, as well as an icebox that will preserve the freshness of your catch until you return to the shore.

Reelin Pelican Fishing Charters will take you fishing for Redfish, Sheepshead, Flounder, Black Drum, Trout and other shallow water species.

You will have a fishing license provided, as well as the fishing gear including bait and ice. You are welcome to bring your own food and drinks for the day. Captain Robert invites you to spend a day on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterways!

Very little nibbles the entire 1/2 day. The Capt tried several “Honey Holes” as he called his favorite fishing locations. Very Long Boat rides between his Honey Holes.
At the end of the day 1 fish, 1 Crab and two or three oversize throw backs. Yep, We kept the Crab.
I do not fault the the Capt for our bad luck, he tried really hard.
