Energizer Sportfishing

Energizer Sportfishing invites you to spend a day with their crew on the super productive Morehead City waters. This area offers exceptional year-round fishing for many different species of fish and the experienced crew of Energizer Sportfishing will put you on them.

Energizer Sportfishing operates a 46’ Custom Offshore sportfishing boat originally built in 1974 and restored in 2017. Powered by a 925 HP Detroit Diesel engine, this boat is a serious offshore fishing machine. It features a full bathroom, beds, a kitchen, an air-conditioned and heated cabin, and an entertainment system, all available for your comfort.

Morehead City is the home base of one of the biggest offshore fishing tournaments on the East Coast. This fact alone tells you that fishing here is extraordinary. With the Energizer Sportfishing team, you could be targeting tournament-worthy Mahi Mahi, Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish, Amberjack, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Kingfish, Wahoo, and Yellowfin Tuna.

Using a variety of provided Shimano rods, Penn reels, tackle, and bait, you will target any species in season. Your captain will advise which species you can target for the time of the year you go out, and they’ll dish out the pro tips, too. Your fishing license is also included in the trip price, so all you have to think about is some food and drinks for the day.

All you need to do is take a look at the captain’s calendar, find out the next opening that works for you, and book your next fishing adventure!
