Captain Robert is knowledgeable about fishing in Oak Island. Our foursome of friends fished offshore and in the back waters off Oak Island. We caught flounder, shark, and a few other fish. It was a safe, clean boat fully equipped with everything needed for a productive fishing trip. Captain Robert kept everyone's pole with bait, played pleasant music, and shared local tales. His enthusiasm for the sport and beauty of the area was definitely contagious. The trip included an exciting boat ride and ended with our fish cleaned, gutted, and fileted for our cooking ease. We are definitely scheduling future trips and are in process of coordinating a group outing next week. It is a must do island outing!
