Your fishing trip will take place aboard a spacious 46-foot Guthrie Carolina custom boat. It comes powered by twin 640 HP Cummins QSM engines and has a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots. The vessel is ideal for a group of six anglers to fish in comfort and style, sipping their favorite drinks when relaxing inside the air-conditioned cabin. The boat is fully rigged with top-notch navigational electronics and safety equipment. An ice-box is fitted on board to keep the catch fresh during the day, as well as outriggers and downriggers for a professional fishing experience. If you are up to a challenge, you will especially enjoy the boat’s fighting chair.

Fishing Atlantic Beach style is an experience you can’t miss. Stay close to the shore and focus on catching Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, King Mackerel, and more. Take a ride 15 to 20 miles out to add Wahoo and Mahi Mahi to the list. And if you want even more action, go as far as 60 miles offshore to target Bluefin Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, and White and Blue Marlin.

The trips come inclusive with quality rods, reels, bait, lures, and licenses. You will only need to bring your own food and drinks!

About the Captain

Troy Pate
Atlantic Beach, North Carolina, United States
Member since April 2017
Grew up in eastern NC and spent many years learning the trade. I have been fishing offshore for nearly 25 years and have been running charters, fishing tournaments and running deliveries for much of that time. I hold a USCG 100 Ton Master license and am also a certified open water diver. Coastal Angler magazine has me write their monthly offshore report. We understand that fishing is important but also believe that our customer service should be second to none - Our customers are our best advertising. We provide a great experience starting with our very well maintained boat, then we only use top of the line tackle and combine that with our knowledge of fishing and commitment to excellence. We want to be the best every day!

Thank you Chris, was a great afternoon with good fishing and beautiful weather - hard to beat that here on the Crystal Coast!  Hope to see you this fall when we are fishing out of Oregon Inlet

We had a great time on our half day with Captain Troy and his mate! The weather got a little rough a few times but I felt very safe while Captain Troy handled the boat with ease. The mate kept the boat nice and clean, helped us catch our fish and cleaned them for us at the end of the trip. It was a very enjoyable day and we look forward to booking again when we’re able to!
