Manteo NC, United States

Carly A Sportfishing offers year round Gulf Stream Charters out of Manteo, North Carolina. Departing from Pirate’s Cove Marina at Oregon Inlet, the crew can go as far as 36 miles out to reel in the big fish. With the local waters world-renowned for excellent sport fishing opportunities and the crew that was born to fish, you have all the chances to have the time of your life.

You will go out aboard the “Carly A”, a 57-foot Johnson Boat works Carolina custom sportfisherman. She was upgraded in 2008 with new paint, 12KW Northern Lights generator, shaft tubes, and a list of extras. The “Carly A” is a seaworthy fishing machine which comes powered by twin 400 HP Caterpillar engines. She is fully rigged with state-of-the-art navigational electronics and was built with safety in mind. The boat is licensed to accommodate up to 6 anglers and is fitted with a flybridge to spot any action going on beneath the surface, as well as a Release Marine fighting chair and 2 Sailfish chairs for the maximum enjoyment. Inside, there is a fully air-conditioned salon with all you need for a comfortable day on the water.

A Gulf Stream charter is an excellent way to leave all your problems and worries behind. The local waters are home to a variety of fish species and are home to the best gamefish. Whether you are looking for a special day with your friends and family or just want to catch the big one, the crew got you covered. On your day out, you will be going for Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Mahi-Mahi, Wahoo, and Blackfin, Bluefin, Yellowfin, and Bigeye Tuna.

Each trip comes with all you need to make an outstanding catch possible. You will be provided with tournament-grade tackle and bait, as well as license. You only need to bring something to eat and drink, your camera, appropriate clothing, and a cooler to take your catch home.
