Come fish the beautiful Lower Cape Fear River

Whether you prefer Fly Fishing or Light Tackle, we will fill your needs on a day’s fishing in the Southport/Oak Island/Bald Head Island area. Remember; it’s your day, so please inform us of your fishing type preferences.

While fishing inshore we target; red fish, flounder, speckled trout, and sheepshead. During afternoon/evening trips, we target ladyfish, sharks, and even a chance at a huge cape fear tarpon. Near shore target species include spanish mackerel, bluefish, spadefish, fall false albacore, spring Bonita, gray trout and of course big sharks!

No matter what your skill level, our goal is to teach you the “how to’s” and have you hooking and catching your own fish. Kids are always welcome and we encourage their participation.

For your convenience, we provide pickup service from all area marinas, including Bald Head Island. We offer fishing trip packages that include first class waterfront lodging. Check out the fishing reports to see what’s biting and let’s go fishing!

What trip do you want? Most of our backwater charters target the big three in the lower cape Fear- Red drum- Flounder and Speckled Trout. During the summer months a larger variety of fish are available including Tarpon, spadefish, Spanish Mackerel etc. We want to target whatever fish you are after so please let us know your wishes and we promise to give it 110% to make it happen.

Inshore/Backwaters- This trip is specifiically designed for those who do not want to go into the ocean- We have nice bays, creeks and flats to fish close to Southport, Oak Island and Bald Head Island. We typically fish for red drum, speckled trout and flounder however we can fish for Sharks and Tarpon in July and August.

Nearshore- A nearshore trip occurs in the ocean but within sight of land. This trip is great for those who want to stay close and is perfect for catching Spanish Mackerel and huge Sharks. At certain times of the year live baiting king mackerel within sight of land is an option as well...
