Morehead City NC, United States

Morehead City is a go-to destination for avid anglers, scuba divers, and ocean lovers. And there’s no better way to experience the excellent inshore and offshore fishing in the area than with Nakota Charters! Captain David Stone has over 20 years of experience fishing the waters around Morehead City and Atlantic Beach and he loves sharing his knowledge with his customers.

He invites you to join him on a trip of a lifetime on his 24’ Carolina Skiff center console, out of the box in 2010 and fully overhauled in 2017. This beauty comes powered by a 140 HP Suzuki motor and can take you and up to 5 other anglers fishing without tangling lines. It’s also rigged with top-notch safety and navigational equipment for a comfortable and productive fishing experience.

The captain will put you on anything that the bountiful local waters can offer, from Drum and Trout in the marshes to King Mackerel and Cobia in the nearshore waters. If you have an itch for a specific species, just let him know and, if in season, he will try his best to get you on it.

You’ll have the best professional fishing gear at your disposal, just make sure to bring your own equipment if you want to go fly fishing. Live bait and lures are also provided. You’ll be using live bait for tempting bigger predators, such as King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, and Cobia. It will be waiting for you on board on half-day trips, but you’ll have an opportunity to catch it yourself on full-day trips.

This charter is perfect for introducing your kids to the joys of angling because there is no age limit except for Flounder trips (your little ones have to be at least four). So don’t wait a second longer and book an adventure all ages will enjoy to the fullest!

About the Captain

I'm a third generation captain and fishing runs very deep in my soul. In 2001, I became a captain, following family footsteps of both my father and grandfather. I grew up with fishing; my father got me into it – I used to listen to his fishing stories my whole life. Light tackle is my favorite fishing method and I love showing new people the sport that I live for! One of my dearest fishing memories is catching 700-pound Bluefin Tuna on 30-pound craft tackle that took 2.5 hours to reel in.

Fishing Conditions were not ideal but Captain David worked hard to put us on fish.  Great time, I would recommend David anytime!

My grandson (17 years-old) and I spent a full day plus some extra bonus hours thrown by Capt. David on 6/23 and had a great time. Although strong winds kept us close in, he made an extra effort for us to get some fish in the box, which mostly were Blues and Mackrel but more than enough for a “mess”. What I liked best was his determination to find where they were biting and his numerous types of baits and fishing gear and methods he kept changing to when one spot or tackle was not getting us results. I will definately call Capt. Daavid for our next trip. By the way, we talked about the bad review due to mechanical problems but that could happen on many single-engine boats, although understand the passengers point nevertheless. We had no problems of that sort whatsover.
