Join Captain Josh on the beautiful inshore estuaries of Wilmington, NC! On this trip, you'll be searching for massive Black Drum, Flounder, Redfish, Sheepshead, and Speckled Trout in the marshes and flats.

No matter what you choose, this trip is sure to be a blast!...Read More
Captain Josh's 17’ Maverick bay boat will allow you to easily navigate the twisting canals within the estuary. Once on board, you will be drift fishing and light-tackle fishing using live bait. The 70-HP Yamaha engine will get you where you need to go! She also has a wireless trolling motor to move quietly and efficiently in shallow water. Captain Josh has great local knowledge when it comes to the best hot spots and holes, so get ready for some terrific fishing.
On this adventure, all you need to bring is some appropriate clothing, sun protection, food, and drinks. Captain Josh will provide everything else including rods, reels, bait, and tackle. Everything you catch on this adventure will be released to protect the delicate balance of the estuary. This trip should be incredible!
Raised in North Carolina, Captain Josh spent his childhood on the water. His passion for fishing inspired him to obtain his Captain's License in 2019. Shortly after, he began taking customers on chartered trips. He loves showing others the joys of fishing and being out on the water. Whether you're an experienced angler or just learning to tie your knots, Captain Josh will show you a great time and get you hooked on a big one!
