Grandpa Charters is a family-owned and operated business, which offers fun-focused fishing experienced running May through October, fishing both inshore and offshore for a huge variety of species, from Redfish and Sheepshead all the way up to Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Marlin.
The “Grandpa” is a 40’ Northshore fishing boat which has served faithfully since 1998, and still makes for a world-class fishing platform. Equipped with everything from the latest electronics, to outriggers and a fighting chair, it’s easily adaptable to any style of fishing.
Having been designed and built specifically as a fishing vessel, the boat excels both inshore and offshore, and has plenty of space on deck for up to 6 guests. The vessel also has a large flybridge for you to take in the view, and a head for extra comfort on longer trips.
With trips ranging anywhere from two to ten hours, and targeting species as diverse as Flounder and Tuna, you would expect a variety of equipment to tailor each trip to the fish you are after. That is exactly what you get, with light and heavy tackle, and the option to troll, drift, bottom fish, spin, and even spearfish to make sure you land what you are after!
Most of all, the thing that makes the crew special is the level of experience and skill with which each trip is run. Captain Russell is a 3rd generation captain, and he and his mate have over 50 years of experience between them. This means you are in safe and capable hands, that you can trust them to make sure you have a fun and productive trip every time.
All trips come with tackle, bait, and licenses for everyone on board, so all you have to do is turn up and have fun!
Join Grandpa Charters and experience a North Carolina fishing adventure you won’t forget!
