Overview
More
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. We are also the managing partners of Dragin Fly Fishing Charters (see our TripAdvisor page) in Costa Rica based out of Los Suenos Marina and Resort. We specialize in fishing packages, family vacations, corporate trips and honeymoons. All trips are customized and can include fishing, accommodations, transportation and tours. Go with someone who know! George and Anna have been working in Costa Rica for over 20 years. Let us help you plan your next adventure!

This was our first Corporate trip scheduled through Down East Guide Service and although the fishing was slightly slow. I am convinced that Anna and George do not ever tell clients "NO". We booked 12 trips throughout the week while hosting about 30 customers. As...More
