Captain Froggy’s Charter Fishing is a sought after charter located in Wanchese, NC. Captain Froggy provides professional fishing trips that sell as hotcakes. If you want to place your bet on one charter to take you out and turn your day into a great fishing adventure, book your spot.

Wanchese overlooks some of the finest fishing spots in the area. Pamlico Sound lies nearby, and the waters of the Atlantic Ocean are a boat ride away. This means that Captain Froggy knows how to put you on a variety of fish.

You’ll go fishing aboard a 25’ Carolina Skiff center console that can take up to 6 people. She is powered by a 250 HP Suzuki 4 Stroke engine and can reach speeds of up to 35 knots. In her lifetime, Here Fishy Fishy has taken numerous customers out on the water and provided memorable fishing excursions to many kids.

The boat is rigged with the standard safety and navigational equipment, and also has a flybridge, live bait well and an ice box. For more precision, she is equipped with outriggers and downriggers. Whether you want to troll for Spanish Mackerel or cast a jig for Redfish and Flounder, Captain Froggy knows how to go about it. He’s also a grandfather of nine, and simply adores when kids come along.

When you step onboard, you’ll be greeted by the captain and his first mate. You’ll get rods, reels and tackle, lures and live bait. No need to worry about the license, it’s been taken care of.

Depending on the season and fish biting, you will encounter the likes of Striped Bass, Amberjack, Mahi Mahi, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Redfish. Cobia and Tuna are not an uncommon sight. These fish swim at different distances from the shore, and that will determine what you’ll catch. One thing is sure, though - Captain Froggy’s Fishing Charters is a safe choice whatever water you fish.

**Captain Froggy and his mate will be wearing face masks at all times. They will be sanitizing the boat in between each trip, so you can feel free to book a trip with no worries!**

Born and raised right here in coastal North Carolina. I have fished ever since I was old enough to walk. Fishing and hunting are my passion, and I am blessed to be able to do it as a living. I am a grandfather of 9 and love kids. There is nothing like seeing the smile on a kid's face when they catch a fish.
