Guided by Ashley Forrest
Captain Ashley has been a charter operator for 14 years, but he's been fishing these waters since before he can remember. A true local, he knows just about everything there is to know about the fishing off of Beaufort, NC and is an expert guide, whether you're an experienced angler or a newbie. In addition, Captain Ashley is a major tournament angler, and has competed in the SKA Kingfish Tour and in multiple billfish and Mahi Mahi tournaments. He loves taking families out and helping kids land their first fish!
If you're looking for some exciting offshore fishing, complete with screaming reels and giant fish, you've come to the right place. Captain Ashley's Bluewater Special is a must for avid anglers looking to hook up on prizewinning sportfish, including species such as Amberjack, Kingfish, Barracuda, Snappers, and more! On the 8-hour option, you'll be catching a range of close offshore species on the troll and on the bottom. On the 11-hour option, your targets expand to include Mahi, Wahoo and other pelagic predators. Let Captain Ashley be your guide to the Gulfstream, a major trans-Atlantic current that lures giant fish with the promise of a feeding frenzy. If you've never fished this unique and challenging underwater environment, there's no better opportunity. You'll employ a range of techniques and plenty of gear to catch these fish, and when one takes the bait—get ready for the fight of a lifetime! On the morning of the trip, you'll head out on his 50' Buddy Davis Custom Carolina, a sportfisher built for speed, performance, and comfort. She's powered by twin 735 HP Detroit engines, so you won't have to cruise for more than a couple of hours before you reach the prime fishing grounds and start haulin' 'em in. On the way, cross your fingers for a Dorado or Cobia! Captain Ashley will be prepared with everything you need for a blue-ribbon day, including rods, reels, bait, tackle, and most importantly, his years of experience hunting champion pelagic predators. To make the most of your experience on the water, make sure to bring Polarized Sunglasses, Weather-Appropriate Clothing, Hat, and Sunscreen. Get ready to have a blast! Read More

Great time on the water. Friendly, knowledgeable crew and gorgeous weather. A lovely day out. Thank you!!
We caught plenty of fish to bring home! Had the best time. We are definitely going to book again for a whole day so we can catch the BIG fish!!
Excellent trip, very accommodating. We took our two kids for their first fishing experience and they loved it. Crew was awesome and made sure the kids were having fun the whole time. If we ever get back in the area I would not hesitate to book with them again. 5 stars all the way. …
This was a great trip. The Captain (Ashley) & 1st Mate (Grayson) were both top notch, there to insure a great experience for all of us, and they delivered. The boat and were in top condition, made you feel very safe and helped make the trip 1st class all around. This was first time for myself, my daughter & granddaughters, my future son-in-law has been out several times before. All of us rate this 5 stars, because that’s as high as it goes. …
Captain Ashley and Mate Grayson were fantastic to fish with on our trip May 1. Ashley’s concern for our safety and desire for a good experience played out well as we did some near shore fishing while waiting for seas to subside. Top notch equipment and knowledge of where to go kept is in fish all day, at every drop with no equipment issues. Grayson was a champ helping us out with fish, keeping us in bait and then cleaning a box full of fish at the end of the day. I highly recommend and can’t wait to fish with Captain Ashley again! …
