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.

Spending the day following a large school of Menhaden catching fish and watching the marine life was pretty cool. Nobody works harder than Capt. George to put you... More

George Beckwith has the best guide service for fishing and bird hunting that I have ever dealt with. I fly fish around the world and George never disappoints me. He absolutely gives you everything he promises and more. He is a pleasure to deal with. He has the best boat in Costa Rica, the Dragon fly. You can't go wrong... More

We had great fishing trip in Costa Rica. Everybody had great time thanks to George and his team. We caught seven sailfish and the crew was very helpful

Capt Beckwith and his staff provided my dad and I with a great experience. We fished the Roanoke in early May 2014 for striper. We have fished that river for many years with middling success. We did an afternoon and morning session. The afternoon was fun with some solid sized fish, and the following morning was ludicrous. I have never... More

Have been to Costa Rica 5 times now since 2005 and all trips were handled by George & Anna with Down East Guide Service. Always a great experience in a wonderful place. Fishing was incredible as always on the DRAGIN FLY. Captain James and the crew are the best in the business and the boat is a fishing machine! Seeing... More

Captain George and Down East Guide Service were the sole reason our recent Costa Rica visit was a success. From our transportation from the airport upon arrival throughout our entire stay all aspects were organized and efficient without delay. Capt. George continuously monitored and oversaw our itinerary each and every day. Upon discovering our original charter boat experienced a problem... More

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
