Captain Robert and Reeling Pelican did an outstanding job today putting us on the fish. Multiple Over slot red drum were caught by all of us on the boat today. Backwater black drum fishing was excellent as well. I highly recommend Reeling Pelican Charters. Thanks Captain Robert for a fun and memorable day!

Reelin' Pelican assisted with a veteran's group for a day of offshore fishing. Captain Robert got us out on the water quick to maximize the time we were able to fish. Everyone walked away with some fish and some great stories. Would love to go back for another round!!

There is no better charter captain in the Oak Island area than Captain Robert Capps and the Reelin' Pelican! We have fished with Robert numerous times and almost every day on the water has been fantastic. Had our best day yet this weekend, outfishing every boat around us and catching our limit of red drum. Robert knows the waters and knows where to find fish when nobody else seems to be getting a bite. His love for fishing and for making sure his guests enjoy the experience is easy to see. His equipment is top line, his boat is clean and he works hard to ensure everyone has a blast. You're settling if you choose any other charter captain for your day on the water!

We loved our sunset cruise to dinner and our half day fishing charter. Robert is very knowledgeable about the area and all things fishing related. Robert was great with our 10 year old son and even taught how to throw the net to catch bait. Thank you Robert for two great trips!

We had an awesome day out on the water with Robert this past weekend. We were on the bite from start to finish, with lots of black drum, trout and bull reds. Unreal. All of his gear was dialed and ready to go, and he was a great host. Lots of laughs. Can't wait to book the next trip. Thanks again Robert!

Captain Robert is the best! My husband & I went inshore fishing for 4 hours today. We enjoyed every minute. He is so knowledgeable, respectful and friendly. He treated us like family. We would never think about booking a trip with anyone else. The Rusty Hook even prepared my flounder for dinner...it was delicious.

We chartered Captain Robert's boat on March 31st, 2021. My wife and I had an incredible fishing trip. Captain Robert is personable, has both knowledge of fishing and the local waters. We will definitely use his charters in n the future.

We had a Great day fishing with Captain Robert. We had planned a Gulf Stream trip but the weather changed it to off shore. We caught some Spanish Mackerel, black drum, croaker and a few sharks. A young lady with us started to feel a little sick so Captain Rob pulled anchor and took us to the marina to get her some ginger ale, She felt much better after that. Thank You Reelinpelican.

Captain Capps knows the area well and worked hard to get us on fish.I was however disappointed with his people skills.I have been on many fishing charters and my son age 33 has been on a few.He literally screamed at my son several times basically not to allow slack in his line when trying to land a large fish and was extremely condescending to him in tone and demeanor because he hooked up several large fish and did not land one because the leader broke or the fish got off.My rod tip broke off and he went on and on about I had ruined his rod by pulling the swivel into the tip which I had not,and that the rod was expensive.Later he went out further to attempt to troll .He deceased boat speed ,asked one of us to keep the boat on course while he put out 4 lines .At such low speed I was unable to keep the boat straight which tangled his lines at which he began to scream again ,curse,and say we had cost him 100 yards of line.My son the tried to steer the boat while he untangled lines but at low speed he also had no better luck and Robert again berated him also as if we were idiots! He drove the boat at speeds he knew would slam us as hard as possible and get us as wet as possible once slowing down to say sorry gentlemen.I had considered taking my 8 year old grandson but I am so glad I did not!
Our experience was so different from the reviews which makes me wonder if we were treated differently for some other reason.We are an easy going family and usually go with the flow but obviously this trip did not meet our expectations and it had nothing to do with the fish!!

All I can say is wow. Robert was fantastic. Half day trip from 12-4. Ran into a school of black drum and ended up with 15 keepers! Great day. Highly recommend!
