Tall Tail Charters

Airlie Road
Wilmington NC, United States

Tall Tail Charters operates one of the finest boats running out of Wilmington, North Carolina. Whichever type of saltwater fishing you have in mind, from a nearshore Spanish Mackerel trip for a family or beginner anglers to Gulf Stream trips to overnight fishing packages for the big game – Tall Tail Charters is just the best choice.

Enjoy your fishing trip with Tall Tail Charters aboard a spacious Tiara boat, which comes powered by twin 300 HP Cummins engines. Originally built in 1988, the vessel was restored in 2008 and has a maximum cruising speed of 24 knots. It provides a comfortable fishing space for up to six guests and is fully rigged with state-of-the-art navigational electronics, including all Garmin GPS and fish finder, an Icon VHF radio, and a Furuno radar.

The boat is fitted with a flybridge to aid your search for the fish, an anchoring system to make sure you stay rooted to the fishing grounds, an ice-box to keep the catch fresh during the day. Inside, there is an air-conditioned saloon with a toilet, a kitchen, and a bed, as well as a multimedia system with a TV. The boat’s outriggers and downriggers make sure you have a professional experience.

Trips run from five hours nearshore to twelve hours on the Gulf Stream waters. The crew could take you fishing up to 40 miles off the beach, where you will be chasing Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Bluefish, Seabass, and Flounder. If you want to cruise a bit further and catch bigger fish, you will enjoy the Gulf Stream trip for Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish, Grouper, Snapper, and many more.

The most passionate anglers will enjoy the thrill of spending two days fishing the waters in and around the Frying Pan Tower, where you will be butting heads with big fish.

A trip with Tall Tail Charters comes inclusive with all the necessary gear, tackle, live bait, lures, licenses, and a cleaning and filleting service for whatever you want to take home with you after the trip.

I started Tall Tail Charters to share my love for fishing and boating with others. With such a fast paced and technologically advanced world we live in, its nice to unplug and get out on the water with friends or family. Our USCG Licensed Captain John Workman is sure to show you a great time on the water and I will be on the boat as First Mate, helping you catch fish!

The crew, boat, gear, and conditions were excellent!  Finding the fish was not. We landed a few black tuna and several small same breed fish;  hooked up once trolling on a big fish but the line was bitten off.  We still had a good time, however,went home a little dissatisfied with the catch.

Great fishing experience! Best day I’ve had fishing in a long time! We probably caught 25 or more fish and kept more than half! So we ate fish for half the week. I highly recommend this charter if you want to catch fish all morning! Crew was very friendly and helpful too, they even cut and cleaned the fish for us. I will be coming back next year for sure!
