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.
