Circle Bak Fishing

Circle Bak Fishing is family owned and operated with two generations of experienced captains. They offer fun filled fishing trips that come with everything you need, from bait and top of the line tackle to complimentary fish cleaning. Join Captain Jordan Vass in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina and come experience everything these waters have to offer!

The Circle Bak is a 26’ C-Hawk with a 250 HP Yamaha engine. This vessel is quick to get to the fishing grounds and you will enjoy your ride along the way. The spacious deck provides plenty of room for you, your family, and friends to have a great time on the water. Up to four passengers can fish in comfort and children of all ages are welcome.

Your Captain Jordan Vass was born and raised here in Wrightsville Beach and has spent time working with some of the finest captains in the area. He knows these waters well and is prepared to bring you the best of them, whether you come aboard for a few hours or a full day.

Capt. Jordan will help you target a variety of game fish swimming offshore, including Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, Sailfish, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, King Mackerel, and an assortment of bottom fish. Many of these fish are biting within 20 miles of the coast. On a full day trip, you can target the biggest of them up to 30 miles offshore.

While fishing with Capt. Jordan you will have the chance to try your hand at several techniques, such as live baiting, slow trolling, trolling, and bottom fishing. Capt. Jordan provides fishing gear by Penn and Shimano and will have live bait ready and waiting on board when you arrive. You will have outriggers and advanced fishing technology at your disposal, as well.

Trips with Circle Bak Fishing include a fishing license and all the gear you need. You are welcome to keep your catch and Capt. Jordan will clean and fillet any fish you would like to eat.

Come aboard and spend the day in Wrightsville Beach fishing with family and friends!

I was born and raised in Wrightsville Beach, NC. Growing up in a fishing community and getting the privilege to grow up in a town like this has been a blessing. I've been a mate on a charter boat for six years, learning from some of the best mates and charter captains on North Carolina's Crystal Coast.
