Plan for any kind of weather! We had beautiful sun and 65* but were prepared for cold weather too.

Take snacks and water. Only fish with the locals recommended because they are experienced and know where the fish are. If its early take a light wind breaker because it is a bit chilly in the morning.

Just remember that it is what it is when fishing. Great weather doesn't always present fish. That's why they call it fishing and not "catching!"

I'd recommend booking with an experienced captain as the conditions are constantly changing in the area. Getting some first hand knowledge will help us greatly on future outings.

As long as the ocean isn’t quite as ruff then we could have gone out further. But the capitan was looking out for our best interest. We have a great time.. My son the LIZARD FISH KING!!!

During this time of year the fish are moving. Catch is harder to predict. Expect lots of cruising attempting to find the fish. Weather is unpredictable so be flexible. We did a 3/4 day and would have probably been better served with a full day.

We surf fish every time we come down. We had another great successful trip! ( This is actually the reason we come down is to surf fish)

My experience with the half day charter was excellent and exceeded my expectations. We tied a three day stay in Beaufort with the charter, which worked out well.

Ask around for the best spots and bait. Most people are more than happy to help out and wish you the best of luck.

I didn’t think we were going to catch that many sharks, but after eating some I wish I had kept more of them. They were delicious.

You have to submit to the weather and time of year but that is usually the case anywhere you fish.
