My family visit NC from MI for Spring Break and had a fantastic time. Captain William was super knowledgeable and patient. It was a lot of fun catching fish and learning about the area. He handles the barrage of questions from my sons like a championship boxer. It was a windy day with a chop, but he found us great spots to fish. We could not have asked for a better day we came home with great memories and fish to eat. Our experience with Captain William has made this area a spring break destination for years to come.

This fishing trip was a unique experience for my son and me coming on the last day of spring break trip to the beach. We were really lucky to have captain William as our guide and will try our best to go out there with him again. We went through a few different places employing different fishing techniques and having lots of fun. Couldn’t keep those flounders, but brought some catch for a few dinners with friends. It is a great fishing time.

I and my grand daughter had a great experience Captain William is very nice and knowledgeable about the area and fishing. The bite was a little slow and we were new to fishing from a boat in the Ocean. Nevertheless, Will went above and beyond to see that my Granddaughter caught fish and that is all that mattered to me! If you go out later in the season as we did be sure to bundle up as the Ride out is a little, cool! I would definitely recommend booking your charter with Local Knowledge Charter !!

We found a hot spot on the nearshore hitting grey trout off the bottom. We were pulling in 2-3 at a time. Hit our limit in less than 4 hours and even caught a citation awarded grey trout. Also caught Spanish mackerel, bluefish, and flounder. Captain William was a great host and kept our lines baited all day. Great day all around!
