The company is a promoter of the sportfishing industry and operates in a safe, sustainable and environmentally friendly manner. South End Anglers protects the investment of their clients and their fishing program is designed to allow the anglers the greatest chance to succeed.

Enjoy a ride with South End Anglers aboard a brand-new 22-ft Sea Hunt boat, which comes powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine. This is a clean, spacious, and seaworthy vessel and can comfortably take up to four guests. It is fully rigged with top-notch navigational electronics, which include a GPS, a VHF radio, a fish finder, and a radar. The boat is equipped with an ice-box, an anchoring system to make sure you to stay rooted to your fishing grounds, a wireless trolling motor for a quiet ride, downriggers, and a live bait tank.

South End Anglers offers four, six, and eight-hour trips to choose from. All the packages can be customized to suit any angler’s needs. You can fish the shallow water flats, inshore, and nearshore. The Captain is very familiar with the methods that work best in the local waters, including trolling, jigging, bottom fishing, spinning, fly fishing, popping, and live and heavy tackle.

Your targeted species will be Redfish, Flounder, Speckled Trout, False Albacore, Bluefish, Tarpon, Sheepshead, King Mackerel, Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, and Black Drum.

For your fishing trip, South End Anglers will provide you with all the necessary equipment to make your catch possible, such as rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures. As well as that, your trip will include your licenses and drinks, so you can feel free to bring your own snacks if you want. South End Anglers will clean and fillet the catch for you to take home and fill the freezer.

Member since February 2017
Captain Chadwick has dedicated his entire professional career to the sportfishing industry. Fresh out of high school he began guiding fisherman in the streams around his home, the Shenandoah Valley. The passion led him west to Montana for a few seasons and ultimately the voyage continued north. Spending the next 10 seasons in the Bristol Bay region of south-west Alaska, he honed his teaching skills on some of the finest Salmon, Char, and Trout rivers. The dream of guiding year-round first became a reality in 2006. The waters of Alaska and Patagonia made up for over 300 days on the water. Saltwater fishing pursuits were always how this veteran Trout guide spent his time during the “shoulders” of other seasons. The coast of North Carolina always called to him: his favorite destination ultimately became home, and Topsail Island, NC marks the center of the fishing grounds.
