CHARTER BOAT FISHING AT CAROLINA BEACH
Welcome to Second Sport Charters!
Offshore, close to shore or inshore fishing, we work hard to give you a great fishing charter experience. Currently we offer 4-15 hour charter options. We also can assist with a pleasure cruise or a scuba diving adventure. Take a look around and contact us if you have any additional questions. We look forward to scheduling your offshore fishing adventure!
The Barbarino is a 37’ Topaz Express Sport Fisherman. Topaz yachts are known as “battlewagons” for their sturdy hulls and seaworthiness. She is powered by twin 3208 CAT diesel engines with turbochargers and has a cruising speed of 20 knots. The Barbarino sports a generously sized fishing deck and will easily accommodate 6 for charter fishing. The cabin is fully air-conditioned/heated with a full head, refrigerator and cushioned seating/bunks. Onboard we are outfitted with all of the essential safety equipment.
Captain: Dan Harris
My family has been at Carolina Beach since 1939 when my grandfather built a beach cottage that we still use today. While attending college at UNC Wilmington, and off and on for many years after graduation, I worked as a mate on Head and Charter boats out of Carolina Beach. By using my own vessels as well as by booking charters with other captains, I have continued to fish on a regular basis. I’ve always loved to fish offshore, and I want to take that passion and become the best captain possible. I am also a certified NAUI diver and have taken many dives both offshore and inland.
First Mate: James Harris
I grew up on the water and have spent time at Carolina Beach my whole life. Fishing and the outdoors are my passion. I have fished offshore for years with my Dad, so I’m experienced with all aspects of what it takes to fish offshore successfully. I can also clean and package all your fish for a small fee. I am looking forward to this next chapter of my life on the ocean.

4 Hour Trip
4 Hour fishing trips are usually a trolling trip within 1 to 2 miles from the beach. The most popular trip is trolling for Spanish Mackerel. If the fish are there, it’s hot and heavy. Sometimes one might catch a King Mackerel on this trip, also Bluefish are common.
10 Hour Trip
10 Hour fishing trips are usually 30-40 miles off shore. Trolling would be for Kings and Mahi. Bottom fishing would be Black Sea Bass, a variety of Snappers, Groupers, Vermillion Snappers, Amberjacks and Trigger fish. Light lining would be for Kings and Mahi when conditions allow.
Our dive charters allow visitors to explore the life under the ocean. Rates will depend on destination and required time. Please call for more information or to schedule your dive.
