Kids Fishing Charters

Inshore Chopper Bluefish Excitement!

There’s nothing like spending a Fun Filled day on the water Fishing with your Kids, Capt. Trev will ensure that everyone is having Fun and Catching Fish.  Being a father I understand the importance of good instruction and continued help while your kids are fishing throughout the fishing trip.  I will assist and bait all hooks so you the parent are hands free to fish as well or take pictures of your kids excitement.

A Message from Captain Trevor:

Being both a father of a very active toddler and the oldest of four siblings I understand that the attention span of Kids is short at best.  Therefore, I have tailored a fishing charter experience designed especially for kids.

If you Choose the Kids Constant Action Fishing Charter, we have a great chance to put the kids on fish due to the type of fishing we will do.  This Fishing Charter is focused on Having Fun and Catching Fish (since kids attention span can be short, I put us in areas where we catch Lots of Fish).  On our kids fishing charter trips we are not targeting specifically gamefish; however, we are targeting the fish that are feeding best at the time to keep the fish coming over the side of the boat!   I do concentrate the Constant Action Fishing Charter on whatever is feeding the heaviest for the time of year, whether its PanFish or Gamefish.  As kids get older (say 10 and above) and their patience and focus increases, I can really pull the ‘fisherman’ out of them by teaching and implementing more advanced fishing techniques.  Just let me know the skill level of the family and I will tailor the trip for you.

Types of Fish we fish for with kids and where we fish our family charters:

Depending on the Beach where you are staying will determine where we fish; however, with the Kids on board I ensure we fish in only the SAFE and protected areas in the Inlets, Bays, around Docks and Bridges of Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach, Topsail Island, Figure Eight Island and Wilmington’s famous Cape Fear River.  We Catch Flounder, Drum, Trout, Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, Black Seabass, Sharks and Everything in-between!  We typically use cut bait and live bait on our kids fishing trips as it is easiest for the little ones.

Our Constant Action Charter Makes Fishing Awesome For Kids!

On our Constant Action Charter we fish for “everything” inshore and using natural and artificial bait. We commonly catch Flounder, Drum, Bluefish, Spots, Black Sea Bass, Pinfish, Lizard Fish and the occasional Stingrays and the kids favorite, sharks.   Remember, each kids charter is custom tailored to your expectations, experience level and what type of fish you want to target. If there are young anglers on board fishing charters are started by teaching the kids how to throw a cast net and find bait! From there they learn (depending on their age) how to tie a Fishermen’s Knot, proper Rod and Reel execution and Boat Operation. It is essential for kids to engage in all aspects of the fishing charter experience and the kids also generally love this type of hands on fishing. Parents are usually delightfully surprised with what kids “take away” from the Constant Action Kids Charter!
