Breakday Charters is all rigged and ready for your fishing adventure on the waters of Atlantic Beach, North Carolina. If you want to butt heads with the best fish the region has to offer or just check what is biting – this is exactly what you are looking for.

Take a ride on a 23’ center console boat, which is powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine. It can take up to 5 anglers if at least two of them are kids (no more than 3 adults) and has a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots. The boat is rigged with navigational electronics, including a GPS, a VHF radio, and a fish finder. Inside, there is a berth bed for you to take a nap during the bites. What is more, the vessel is equipped with a live bait tank, outriggers, and an anchoring system.

Each trip can be customized to suit your needs. You can go fishing the inshore waters of the sounds, rivers, creeks, and marshes, or head up to 20 miles offshore. Novice to pro, anglers of all ages and expertise are welcome to join the adventure.

Depending on your preference, fishing techniques could include casting, jigging, bottom fishing, and trolling using artificial, live, and dead bait. Your main targeted species will be Weakfish, Flounder, Spotted Seatrout, Spanish Mackerel, Gag Grouper, Redfish, Black Seabass, King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Cobia, Amberjack, Barracuda, and many other.

The crew will provide you with live bait, lures, all Penn, Diawa, and Shimano tackle, as well as the fishing licenses. The only things you may want to bring with yourself are your sunglasses, hat, sunscreen, food, and drinks.

With excellent service and attention to detail, Breakday Charters is the best team in the area. Look no further!

With a lifetime of fishing experience ranging from babbling Mountain Trout Streams to Gulf Stream waters my love for fishing has been with me since the age of 5. After graduation from college with a degree in Biology my first post school job brought money and my first of many boats opening up a whole new chapter in my fishing story. I enjoy all manners of angling and have always enjoyed fishing and sharing that experience with others. It was always nice to be the one catching, but I soon developed a love for putting other people on fish and seeing the joy it brings to their soul. It was this love that brought me to leave my well paying manufacturing job to earn my living on the water guiding and chartering fishing trips.
