Coastal North Carolina Fishing

Tournament Trail Charters

Captain Rennie Clark Jr has been fishing the coastal waters of NC for twenty five years. He has fished the entire coastline of North Carolina. His vast experience and knowledge of saltwater fishing has led him to test his skills against the best inshore fisherman from North Carolina to Florida. His experience fishing coastal waters all up and down the east coast has given him the ability to find fish under any conditions even in new waters. Captain Ren has fished as far north as Duxbury, Massachusetts and as far south as the Florida Keys. Whether it comes to catching striped bass, redfish, trout, or any of our other coastal game fish you can count on Captain Ren to put you on them. Tournament Trail Charters offer inshore/near shore charters from the Brunswick County Beaches to the lower Neuse River and all areas in between. Rest assured whether you are a seasoned fly angler or a beginner you will have a great day on the water.
