Stolat Fishing Charters

Stolat Fishing Charters fishes the ocean waters out of Oregon Inlet and the sounds of the Outer Banks, North Carolina. Join them and explore the numerous fishing opportunities!

Enjoy your ride with Stolat Fishing Charters aboard a spacious 42-ft Topaz boat, which comes powered by twin 450 HP turbo diesel Cummins engines. Originally built in 1985, the vessel was restored in 2015 and has a maximum cruising speed of 25 knots. It is fully rigged with modern Furuno navigational electronics, which include two GPS, Color Depth Sounder, a chart plotter, and two VHF radios. Inside, there is a spacious air-conditioned cabin with comfortable seating, satellite radio, a full galley with a microwave and fresh water. The vessel is rigged with an anchoring system to make sure you stay rooted to your playground.

Stolat Fishing Charters welcomes any angler to join the adventure. Your age and expertise don’t matter, and the Captain and his crew are great with kids. Inshore, you will get a chance to target Flounder, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Cobia, and King Mackerel, but the crew’s specialty lies in bottom/wreck fishing. In season, targeted bottom species include some of the best-tasting fish in the area, such as Tilefish, Black Sea Bass, Triggerfish, and Snowy Grouper. Bottom fishing is all hands-on fishing and the best way to fill your coolers.

If you want to experience the ultimate big game fishing, then choose an eleven-hour package, where you will be able to butt heads with Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, White and Blue Marlins, Amberjack, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, and many other species. There’s also the option of customizing your trips, the crew will always ask you what you want to fish for.

Your trip with Stolat Fishing Charters will include rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait, as well as the licenses. You can feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks with you.

With Stolat Fishing Charters the only thing you need to think about is what you will catch next!
