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