A message from Captain Matt Wirt...

Like many of us I have my father to thank for my love of fishing. I have been fishing since I can remember. Whether it was going out in his offshore boat looking for kings, fishing for flounder at the end of the street, or bass fishing in the middle of the winter at 5 a.m. with snow on the ground...we did it all.

As I got older I took fishing very seriously and acquired numerous techniques to put the fish in the boat. I have both a fresh and saltwater background and have incorporated those techniques and tactics into my fishing arsenal which has become polished over the years and has proved to be very effective.

As a Wilmington native, I have been fishing in the Cape Fear region for over 20 years. I also have fished extensively out of Pine Island Florida, Boca Grande, Islamorada, the Bahamas and the Everglades.

I can accommodate any angler. Whether you are experienced or have never seen coastal waters before, I will show you many of my techniques including, knot tying, scoping out fishing ledges, lure selection, and many other techniques that you will quite possibly find useful for the rest of your fishing days. My goal is to to have you leave a better angler than when you showed up!

Captain Matt Wirt holds North Carolina Citations in: Flounder, Spanish Mackerel, Pompano, King Mackerel, Speckled Trout, Black Sea Bass, Amberjack, Barracuda, and Sharks.
