Follow Me Charters:  Serving The Ocean Isle Beach Area Since 1992

*We pick up from Sheffield’s*

We have a very large top on our Coastal 21 boat, providing tons of shade.  We are the only inshore boat at Ocean Isle to have a top for shade and allow for more than 4 fishermen. Our boat has tons of space with a large beam so six folks can easily fish.


Private 2 to 3 Hour Inshore Kid’s (or Kid’s-at-Heart) Trip (Limit 6 passengers) – $100 per hour for the whole boat with up to 6 customers

Capt. Fred really enjoys taking groups of up to six persons on 2-hour kid’s fishing trip on his 21.2 foot Coastal charter boat. The kid’s charter focuses on catching pinfish, croakers, and spots in the Inland Waterway as well as an occasional flounder and bluefish and trout and black drum and spot tail. This trip does not go into the ocean although we may go near the inlet to the ocean. Fred loves kids and has two grandsons under age 6 that live an hour away, so he stays rigged and ready to go fishing all the time – but this trip is also great for kid’s-at-heart customers age 5 to 95 who just want to to catch a bunch of fish.  Dozens of prior customers who chartered Capt. Forest on a kid’s trip want to go fishing again, sometimes six adults, so Capt. Fred runs the kid’s trip charter while Forest is out of the country for a year. Capt. Fred is author of the book “History of Ocean Isle Beach” so he can talk about pirates and shipwrecks etc. with customers if asked.

All trips include: bait, tackle, ice for fish, NC saltwater fishing licenses, crab trap licenses, 20 minutes of fish cleaning, and free bottled water.  Be sure to bring your sunglasses, sunscreen, hat, and what you wish to eat or drink (other than water). Tips are appreciated if you have a good time

*** No fuel surcharges, no credit card processing fees, no captain’s fees, and no extra person charges ***

Pay at end of trip with check or cash please. Thank you.
