If you are looking for action packed fishing off the Carolina coast, look no further! Captain Joe Tunstall, with over 30 years of experience, will have you reeling them in all year long. Carolina Traditions Guide Co. prides itself on helping families and friends make wonderful memories fishing the coast of North Carolina.

Spend your day aboard one of two boat options. The first is a 23’ Carolina Skiff, equipped with a 150 HP Yamaha engine. This beauty can easily maneuver in as few as 8 inches of water, perfect for backcountry fishing and finding that hidden trophy fish. The second is his 23' Sea Ox Outboard that can carry up to 4 guests and is outfitted with a 225 HP Suzuki engine. Both boats are rigged with quality navigation technology that includes GPS, fish finder, and radio systems. You’ll have an ice-box at your disposal to store your fish and keep your drinks cool all day long.

Captain Joe specializes in light tackle and fly fishing. From near coastal, inshore and the marshes of eastern North Carolina, he will have you targeting a multitude of saltwater species including Redfish, False Albacore, Flounder, and so much more. There is always action in these abundant waters!

Captain Joe provides anglers with top quality equipment and tackle that have proven successful in his decades of experience. The charter also covers fishing licenses for all passengers. Guests are welcome to bring personal snacks and drinks, and are encouraged to bring sun protection and weather-appropriate clothing.

Break away and book your next adventure with Carolina Traditions Guide Co. to explore the North Carolina coast like you've never seen it before! 48-hour advance booking is highly recommended.
