Grandpa Charters operates out of the historic fishing town of Wanchese, NC, offering exciting fishing experiences that everyone can enjoy. The species you will be focusing on during time aboard are Shrimp and Crab. These guys are as fun to catch as they are great to eat, and they make for the perfect fishing day for family groups or friends.
Every year during the summer and fall, incredible numbers of these tasty critters come swarming into the sheltered waters which surround the town. To make the most of this, Grandpa charters offer trips to suit any schedule, with charters ranging from 2 through 8 hours allowing everyone to get their fill of these armored delicacies. PLEASE NOTE: Shrimp typically are not caught until after July 1st and usually stay around through the Fall.
Capt. Russell’s 40’ Northshore fishing boat is the perfect vessel for an enjoyable and productive day catching tasty Shrimp and Crab. Built for a life of hard service on the high seas, the vessel provides a safe and stable environment that is perfect for kids. It comes equipped with everything you will need for your day on the water, and features a comfortable interior and a head for extra comfort on longer trips.
The captain comes from a long line of commercial fishermen, and has spent his entire life at sea. He knows these waters like no other captain around, and has the experience and the skill to assure you spend a trouble-free day on the water. Add to that his great boat, and the sheer number of delicious seafood just waiting to be hauled in, and you have the recipe for a truly special day out.
So what are you waiting for? Grab your cooler, grab your camera, and head over to Wanchese for some action-packed fun – you’d better make space in the freezer, though, because you will be coming back with more than even the whole family can eat at once!
