Soulshine Charters

Pensacola Avenue
Morehead City NC, United States

Soulshine Charters invites you to experience fishing in a little place Captain Michael Willis likes to call Paradise. The place is Morehead City, which is considered to be one of the finest fishing destinations in eastern North Carolina. The area you’ll fish offers the most beautiful scenery in the region with lots of wildlife to be seen.

Captain Michael Willis will take you fishing aboard his 22’ Hewes saltwater fishing boat ideal for the local waters. Powered by a 225 HP Yamaha VMAX engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots, it can reach the inshore and the nearshore fishing grounds very easily.

The vessel’s Lowrance HDS 12 GPS & Fishfinder unit is available to help you locate the finest fishing spots, and the wireless trolling motor will ensure you move quietly over the shallow waters in order not to spook the fish.

Soulshine Charters offers inshore and nearshore fishing, often catching various types of fish all on one trip. The species include Redfish, Flounder, and Speckled Trout in the shallow waters. These species are especially good in the Summer months when you can top water fish for the.

If you like traveling a little further off the coast, you can target Bluefish, which is present year-round, Cobia, which is here in May, and Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel, and Black Drum, which are around for the summer time.

Captain Michael likes to work one-on-one and teach anglers how to work artificial lures and to perfect their cast. You can also use live bait when the bite gets slow, but most times lures do the job well. Fishing gear provided on the trip includes Penn International rods and reel, and tackle.

Soulshine Charters is a family oriented company and they enjoy having children above the age of five on board! Please bring children’s life jackets, which are to be worn throughout the trip for the safety of your children.

About the Captain

Michael Willis
Morehead City, North Carolina, United States
Member since May 2017
Captain Michael has been on the water ever since he was a little boy. Fishing with his family has always been something to look forward to, and he made sure he took every chance he had to get on a boat. Over the years, he realized his true calling was to be a captain, so he started his own business in order to share that love and passion with like minded anglers. Michael loves topwater fishing for Trout.
