Fraid Knot Adventures

Cedar Street
Beaufort NC, United States

Fraid Knot Adventures invites you and your family to fish like the locals in and around Beaufort, “America’s Coolest Small Town”. Explore all the exciting aquatic opportunities of North Carolina and its alluring Crystal Coast.

Customize your fishing excursion to meet your specific needs. Whether you are looking for a fun day out with your friends and family, taking a dip in the morning waters, shelling, cruising the waters, and enjoying the wildlife, or you want to come back to the shore with an ice-chest full of great catches, Fraid Knot has it all.

The captain has tailored several packages that could satisfy any angler’s needs. The waters close to the shore are home to some of the most exciting species, including but not limited to Spanish and King Mackerel, Founder, Bonito, Sheepshead, Redfish, Black Drum, Black Seabass, Bluefish, Lizardfish, Cobia, Trout, and many more. You can chase Barracuda, Pompano, False Albacore, and fish that even the most hard-core angler wouldn’t recognize!

If you have an itch to fish the briny deep waters, you will absolutely love an offshore trolling or bottom fishing package. Even with the mate on board, it’s you who will do all the fishing! Target Wahoo, Tuna, Mahi-Mahi, Grouper, Snapper, Billfish, and whatever else may patrol the deep blue waters. And who knows, you might even cruise alongside the elusive Giant Ocean Sunfish or see sea turtles!

You will go out aboard the “Fraid Knot”, which is your ticket to the best North Carolina aquatic experience. This is a 31’ Pursuit center console, that comes powered by twin 250 HP Yamaha engines. The “Fraid Knot” features a deep-V hull that softens the ride for the most enjoyable day out. She is equipped with top-notch navigational electronics and other professional facilities to help you butt heads even with the big ones.

The trips are all-inclusive, you just need to show up and bring something to eat and drink.

Two days before trip, it was agreed to do near shore fishing. The morning of the charter Captain showed up with just inshore tackle, rods, etc??  We didn’t catch any of the targeted species and stayed in one spot for 2 hrs -45 mins, catching only one Croaker?

We’re sorry you had a poor experience as we do our best to accommodate our customers’ requests. You booked and paid for an in-shore trip, not near-shore, for 3-4 people. During our phone conversation, you indicated that one of your party was prone to sea sickness and seemed concerned about that. Based on that information, I planned a light-tackle trip that all of your party could enjoy. We fished several different areas during the tide change, but during this time of year fishing can be slow in-shore. I had already indicated that on our phone conversation. It wasn’t until half-way through the trip that you informed me that the person prone to sea sickness decided not to come. I immediately headed out the inlet and we caught black sea bass, Atlantic sharp nose sharks, etc. I also stayed out an extra 2 hours at no charge to you. Our sincere apologies for any misunderstanding on what you actually booked vs. what you expected and we wish you the best of luck on your future fishing trips.
