Summer redfish, specks, flounder and stripers

​Our Neuse River light tackle fishing trips originate out of Oriental and New Bern.  Our fishing charters go to where the fish and the weather give us the best fishing, whether that is on the Neuse or Trent Rivers, the Pamlico Sound or the many creek and bays in between. 


  • From Oriental, we can target speckled seatrout, redfish, striped bass and flounder

  • Our New Bern fishing trips pursue stripers, redfish, specks, flounder, bass, crappie, perch, bream and shad. 

  • We fish year round and have excellent winter fishing. 

  • We specialize in light tackle fishing trips with artificial lures.



  • We also run fishing charters from Beaufort/Crystal Coast for false albacore, bonito, bluefish, cobia and sharks.  Please take a look a our False Albacore page for more details.     ​​
