Explore the waters off Hampstead North Carolina for a premier sportfishing experience with Katfish Kayak and Fishing Adventures. Explore inshore, nearshore, or offshore and target many different species while enjoying the beautiful natural sights this area offers. Captain Phillip Loughlin has fished these waters for over 40 years, and will be your host to deliver a great fishing experience for everyone in your group.

Charter fishing trips run on Captain Phillip's 2018, 23’ Parker boat that can accommodate up to 4 anglers. Powered by a 300 HPowered P Yamaha engine he'll get you to the fishing grounds quickly, with a cruising speed of 35 knots, and with top quality GPS, radar, and fishfinder systems he'll get you to the right spot with complete safety. There’s an onboard live well you can use to store your bait, and coolers for drinks throughout the trip.

All the fishing gear will be waiting for you when you arrive on the boat. Captain Phillip provides you with rods, reels, tackle, as well as live bait and lures. You will want to make sure you have your NC Coastal Recreational Fishing License (CRFL), as well as a cooler with some drinks and snacks for lunch in case you get hungry. Sun screen, a hat, and of course your camera will complete the outfit.

Aside from traditional charter fishing, Captain Phillip also offers customizable and flexible mothership kayak fishing trips. He can take you to those places you always wanted to fish which are just too far to paddle to. This is a unique service where you bring your own kayak and fishing gear, board the mothership, and let the crew take you where you want to go. As kayak trips are not guided, you need to be an experienced kayak angler, able to handle your boat and your gear in open-water conditions. These kayak trips can accommodate up to 3 anglers.

The fish targeted on this charter vary by season, and you can pick a trip that fits your fishing style and technique. If you’re up for some shallow-water action, species such as Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Red & Black Drum, Flounder, Speckled Trout and others are available. For those who prefer the deep blue, you can go after King and Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, Amberjack, Mahi Mahi, even a Sailfish if you come across one.

Book your next adventure with Katfish Kayak and Fishing Adventures and spend a day full of fishing excitement surrounded by the beauty of the North Carolina coast and waterways.
