We booked a trip with captain Jaime for two days in the beginning of our trip. My fiancé is an avid fisherman, and was able to pick captain Jamie‘s brain for information on the area, and he gladly shared. Captain brought us to some great spots, and there were some fish caught. We even got to fish one of the shipwrecks from the Civil War, which was amazing. We couldn’t of asked for a more hospitable and kind and knowledgeable guide for this trip.

My son and I had such a fun trip with Captain Jamie! He was great with my son, a patient teacher, and he navigated the area with ease. He even tried to hook us a shark! We also saw dolphins and lovely wildlife, and we caught some interesting fish. My son can’t wait to go back and is counting down the days until we see Jamie again!

This was our first fishing trip to Wilmington and the captain was waiting for us at 6:30AM. The weather was lovely and the captain was very friendly. We caught some fish (and almost landed a blue tip shark) but only one keeper, a very nice flounder. It wasn’t for lack of trying as we hit multiple spots and the fish were just not biting as it was so warm. During the trip we saw over a dozen dolphins, lots of crabs and even a deer. It was a delightful experience and we’d go out with Captain Jamie again!
