Leverdrag Charters

Airlie Road
Wrightsville Beach NC, United State…

If you’re thinking of North Carolina, excellent sportfishing, and a friendly captain who wants you to have a great fishing trip, you’re thinking Leverdrag Charters.

Hop aboard their 26’ Seafox center console, capable of holding 4 anglers comfortably at the same time. She’s powered by a 300 HP Suzuki engine, giving her enough juice to develop a cruising speed of 24 knots. Outriggers, downriggers, and a live bait well are available on board, to ensure your trolling can go without a hitch, so you can just focus on catching the fish.

The fish targeted on this charter are very varied, and you can pick out what fits your fishing style and desire. If you’re up for some shallow-water action, species such as Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, and others are available. For those who prefer the deep blue, you can go after King and Spanish Mackerel, Great Barracuda, Amberjack, Mahi Mahi, even a Sailfish if you come across one.

Captain Joe is a seasoned fishing veteran, and his preferred technique is trolling. He won’t shy away from other styles though, light and heavy tackle, bottom fishing, drift fishing and spinning are all on the menu. The charter provides all the necessary fishing equipment. Customers are advised to bring sunscreen, a long-sleeved shirt, and polarized sunglasses.

Fish cleaning and filleting is available free of charge. A fishing license is included as well. There is no minimum age policy for children and Captain Joe encourages young anglers to come aboard. Pickup is available from hotels, but customers are advised to get in touch with the charter to confirm if pickup is available from their location.

Hello,, I am Captain Joe Currie. Growing up in Wilmington N.C at the age of 10, I started fishing the waters of Wrightsville beach N.C., primarily off of johnny mercers fishing pier . At the age of 12 i started fishing the off shore waters of Wrightsville and Carolina beaches .After several years of fishing these waters, It inspired me to become a USCG licensed captain, So i could share my love and knowledge of this great sport with others . Whether you're a seasoned veteran or have never been fishing in the ocean, My goal is to make sure you have a great time and enjoy your fishing experience..
