Salty Roots Fishing

6338 Oleander Dr
Wilmington NC, United States

Salty Roots Fishing invites you on a fishing trip of a lifetime with an experienced and fun captain in the waters of Wilmington, North Carolina. Captain Scott has fished his waters his whole life, and as a native, he is able to provide a truly unique experience. Scott fishes year round, with waters of Wilmington bursting with inshore and offshore fish just waiting to bite!

Enjoy a day of nearshore fishing for Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish in the Spring, King Mackerel in the Fall, or go offshore for Black Seabass, Snapper, Grouper, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Triggerfish if you want lots of fish. Alternatively, hook up a Flounder, Spotted Seatrout or Red Drum while fishing on these bountiful inshore waters.

Fishing is done aboard a beautiful 23’ Regulator Marine center console, originally built in 1999 and restored in 2018. Powered by twin 150 HP Yamaha engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 39 knots, the boat slices through all sorts of weather and is comfortable on the ride out. It can accommodate up to four guests on offshore trips, and up to three on inshore trips.

The vessel has a t-top for shade, which comes in very handy when fishing in the Summer season; life jackets for adults and kids, a livewell for bait, a set of downriggers for trolling, twin GPS units of Garmin 740 & Garmin 741, and a fishfinder all used to locate the best fishing spots.

Salty Roots Fishing carries nothing but the best when it comes to fishing gear - their rods and reels are all Shimano and Penn, they have a wide variety of tackle and live and artificial bait. Once you return to the marina, Captain Scott will clean and fillet your fish so you can make a lovely dinner out of it. Trust us, there is no better feeling than eating your own catch! Enjoy!
