INSHORE FISHING – 2016 21 ft. Coastal skiff with a 115 hp. Suzuki and an 8 ft. top. Limit 6 customers per trip. We also have a NEW 2023 27 ft. Coastal skiff with a 200 hp. Suzuki and a 17 ft. top. Limit 6 customers per trip. Capt. Forest provides two-hour and three-hour kid’s fishing trip on these boats that are designed to let kids throw their own rods out and have a great time fishing and catch many many little fish and sometimes big fish. Adults love these kid’s trips too, and book these trips for teenagers and themselves, because EVERYONE catches a lot of fish, rather than waiting and hoping for a fish to bite. Forest will bait all the hooks and take all the fish off if desired. No extra person charge, No fuel surcharge, No credit card processing fees. Just give Forest a call at 910-473-7219 or book online.

2 hour trips $250

3 hour trips $350


OFFSHORE FISHING AND CRUISES – 2017 42 ft. BIG Prowler catamaran with twin 350 hp. Suzuki engines and a very nice clean Bathroom; limit 6 customers per trip (except on cruises we can accommodate up to 12 persons on switch-out basis) (NO fuel surcharges and NO credit card processing fees and NO extra person charges); we catch lots and lots of fish; you will have to see to believe. EVERYONE catches a lot of fish, rather than waiting and hoping for a fish to bite. This business model of “catching” rather than “waiting and hoping” is the special difference on ALL Follow Me fishing charters on all three of our boats. Come give the BIG 42. ft. Follow Me a try offshore to their special spots – OR reserve one of our very popular cruises: sunset cruise, lunch or dinner cruise, or Baldhead Island cruise. Just give Fred a call at 910-612-5343 or book online.
