About Your Trip

In the late fall and early winter months, something crazy happens on the beaches of the Outer Banks: Bluefin Tuna, migrating up the coast, come in close to the shore to gorge on menhaden in the shallow water! Captain Justin, one of the most versatile and experienced captains on the Crystal Coast, has been targeting these migrating fish for years and would love to share this incredible opportunity with you if you're in town between November and December. This is a seasonal trip laser-focused on finding, fighting, and reeling in one of the Atlantic's, biggest, fastest and most impressive fish, the Bluefin Tuna, in meer feet of water.

With Captain Justin, you'll head out for a short ride from the dock to the oceanside surf waters. He'll come prepared with all the necessary gear, including top-quality rods and reels, trolling equipment, and most importantly, plenty of expertise for tackling these massive fish. Captain Justin will clean and package your catch for you if you catch some smaller keepers, but it should be noted that any commercial-size fish (73inches or bigger) will be kept by the captain per federal regulations.

On the day of the trip, you'll go aboard Captain Justin's 30' Contender center console—a perfect boat for finding, chasing, and landing Tuna. It's equipped with two 300HP Yamaha engines, so you'll spend less time cruising and more time fishing. You'll be set up with everything you need—but when the rod is in your hands, it's just you versus the fish! To make the most of the day, make sure to bring the essentials: Polarized Sunglasses, Hat, Weather-Appropriate Clothing, Sunscreen, and a Camera!

First Time Booking with Us?

Captain Experiences is the home of over 1500 Damn Good fishing and hunting guides. Our mission is to unlock the outdoors for everyone, and we want to help you get out there through our no-hassle online booking experience and our team of outdoors experts.
We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a credit for the full deposit of the trip to be used on any of our trips across the country. Your safety is our top concern.
Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
