Come Fish with Captain Allen

From the clear water flats of Topsail Island and Wrightsville Beach, to the stained nutrient rich waters surrounding Southport, the Cape Fear coast offers the shallow water angler a myriad of opportunities. This area provides excellent sight fishing opportunities year round for our favorite target, North Carolina’s state fish the Red Drum. Other seasonal species we target are Speckled Trout, Tarpon, Flounder, Black Drum, Sheepshead, Bluefish, Ladyfish, Tripletail, and Sharks. Whether you are new to saltwater fishing or you are a seasoned angler, I invite you to come experience what coastal NC has to offer.

Serving: Wilmington, Topsail Island, Wrightsville Beach, Carolina/Kure Beach, Bald Head Island, Southport, & Oak Island.

Why Captain Allen

Capt. Allen has been fishing the Cape Fear Coast for over 20 years and has extensive knowledge of its fishery. Since moving to Wilmington full time in 2005, he has spent hundreds of days a year learning and exploring the local waters and the many species of fish that inhabit them. His experience and his passion set him apart.

My Promise

While I cannot, in good conscience, promise fish on each and every trip, I can promise that I will work as hard as possible to provide you with an unforgettable experience on the water.
