Breakday Charters – 22’

Breakday Charters is based in Atlantic Beach, NC on the wild and beautiful Crystal Coast. The highly experienced crew knows all the hot spots and always works hard to ensure their guests have a successful day on the water.

Enjoy a ride aboard the 22’ Tidewater bay boat, "Breakday", that can comfortably take up to 4 people fishing. The captain can car a maximum of 6 guests people but please contact him prior to booking to discuss as it will impact the fishing tactics employed for the day. The vessel has a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots and comes powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine. It’s rigged with modern electronics including Sonar, Chartplotter, and VHF radio, and equipped with a wireless trolling motor, shallow water anchoring system, half tower, and baitwell, making the boat perfect for these waters.

The crew can accommodate any angler’s needs. You can go fishing inshore, choosing between tidal rivers, marshes, sounds, and creeks, or nearshore in the ocean weather permitting. Forget work, just choose which fish species you would like to target and step aboard. The local waters offer a lot of angling possibilities, and the crew knows the zone very well.

You’ll use quality equipment by leading brands such as Penn, Shimano, Temple Fork Outfitters, and Star. The crew will show you the best fishing technique to land the fish of your dreams, whether that is trolling, drift fishing, jigging, and popping.

Expect to target Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Black Drum, Weakfish, Whiting, Cobia, Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, Bonita, False Albacore, Sharks, and who knows what else! Your trip will include your fishing licenses, as well as rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait.
Once caught, the fish may be cleaned and filleted for you by the crew. Don’t forget to bring bags to take home your fillets.

From kids to beginners to record seekers – everybody is welcome. Join Breakday Charters for a day out, and you will have an experience you won’t soon forget!

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.
