Book your accommodations early and make sure you can change dates or get a refund. Most places are sold out! Also reconfirm with your guide service to make sure the fishing you want to do is working well with the recent trips and check out latest reviews.

It was rough conditions but if you have the patience like this crew did and the knowledge of the ocean floor was quite impressive. Wanchese is way better then Ocean City, MD. and just my opinion, but very impressed with Wanchese fishing....

Check that the water temp is 80 degrees Fahrenheit. If it is not, then go for the full day instead of the half day. That way your boat has time to travel as far as the Gulf Stream where the water is always warm and there are always fish.

The captain made sure everybody was comfortable. He even kept us out of the sun and made my son with a broken leg comfortable. I’ll be back next year

Watch the weather. The rain made us change our plans from going offshore rod fishing to shrimping in the sound. Be prepared to adjust your expectations. Fun is where you make it.

Don’t plan a fishing charter during rainy periods. Thr water is too murky and the fish can’t see the bait.

This was a great trip for kids. We fished inshore and caught quite a few Bluefish. CAPT John and Brooke at Carolina Style were outstanding in every way. We’ll be back next year to do it again.

Go with a short charter to see if it's to your liking. Remember, this it's called fishing. Not catching

Book a trip aboard with Carolina Girl. Get some motion sickness patches if you’re not use to fishing offshore.

Plenty of charters. Do your research and ask local shops for Intel before booking a boat.

Make sure you take motion sickness pills before hand and bring water. Gets warm out there.

Watch the weather. Go out a day or two after the winds switch to the northwest. This drives the warm water in and the fish are larger and more sought after.

Have a plan, or a captain who has one. When asked what we where fishing for? Whatever bites. Never got more than bait fish to bite on the small.piexe of squid used.

Stay in the bay unless you are looking to go out to the Gulf Stream for a full day trip for the bigger game fish.
