Owner description: North Carolina Fishing Guide Service. In Oriental/New Bern we run mixed bag trips for speckled trout, puppy drum, and flounder that can happen at anytime with peak fishing in spring and fall. The Tarpon arrive in late June and depart by mid-September. The peak for the Giant Red Drum is August/September. In Morehead City / Atlantic Beach there is a year round mixed bag of speckled trout, flounder and mackerel as well as near shore wreck fishing for grouper, amberjacks and more. In May and June there is excellent sight-casting for cobia and offshore dolphin fishing. October and November are the best fly fishing months for false albacore and king mackerel.

Absolutely 5 star rating. From start to finish it was a special trip. It was so good I plan on booking next year for a longer stay.

I myself have fished Mexico, Florida Keys and North Carolina and this trip topped them all. In two days we caught 40 Sailfish, 6 tuna, 3 dolphin (one in the 50lb class), 17 grouper, a we raised a...

Thanks again to George, Anna, Capt. James and the entire Down East Guide Service crew for a simply fantastic trip to Jaco. Having never been to Costa Rica or hooked up on a sailfish (much less 42 of them over two days), I can honestly say George and his team set the bar really, really high. They did a superb... More

I have been striper, cobia and drum fishing with Down East Guide Service and Capt. George Beckwith for almost 10 years. Hands down...you will not find a better guide anywhere. George works hard to ensure that your experience is a memorable one. I promise you...George will put onto some fish.

George, Thanks for a fantastic day of cobia fishing. Two 50+ pound fish in one day and a third fish that size that pulled off. One of the things I like about fishing with you is that you never give up, even after we had a very good start to the day with a 57 lb fish. You never slacked... More

Two buddies and I went on the half day inshore trip with George out of Morehead City. He put us right on the fish. Amberjack, Grouper and Seabass. George was an awesome guy too. He was very energetic and kept us all pumped up. I highly suggest Down East Guide Service to anyone looking for a great fishing trip with... More

One of many trips with Captain Beckwith over the past 15 years. I've never experienced anything but professional, courteous, exceedingly pleasant service. DEGS will work to put you on the fish, and on the rare day when things are slow (as fishing can be), you'll still have a great time! These guys know where/when to go, what to use in... More

Highly Recommend!! My husband has talked about fishing in Cost Rica since the day I met him and has frequently reminded me that we “should have went there for our honeymoon” …so thanks to Anna and George we were able to make our ‘fishing trip’ dreams come true and so much more!

Anna and George are A++++. Their guide service is top class beyond your imagination. From the professional staff that treat you like family to their expertise and knowledge of where the fish are biting. As they prepare food during your offshore experience, you will be stunned with how they prepare fresh fish, cooked in a microwave (?really) from the boat... More

8 us had the pleasure of fishing in Costa with Capt George and team again this year. This is probably my 7th season and I am continually amazed by the level of service, the number of fish we catch and the fun we have.
