There are many opportunities to go charter fishing out of Southport, including but not limited to Blue Water Point Marina and South Harbour Marina. My neighbor Mike Helms who is Captain of the Salty Dog Charter Boat recently was named as the Best Charter Fishing Boat in the 2009 Brunswick County Peoples Choice Awards. You can reach Mike at 910 278-9834 to arrange your trip.
As an alternative there are markets that proudly sell local "Brunswick Catch" seafood. A great grouper dinner can be had by anyone who's willing to pay the price!
When the Tuna are running many of our skilled Captains land these fish that are quickly flown to Japan within hours of being caught. That is quite an export!
