Owned and operated by Captain Joe Currie, who grew up in Wilmington, NC, and began fishing at Wrightsville Beach’s Johnny Mercer’s fishing pier at the age of 10, Leverdrag Charters benefits from Joe’s lifelong passion and knowledge of the sport. By age 12, Captain Joe was fishing the offshore waters of Wrightsville and Carolina beaches, an experience that inspired him to become a USCG licensed captain.

Leverdrag Charters offers various fishing trips. Their half-day, 4-hour nearshore fishing charter, available in the morning or afternoon, takes you up to 5 miles offshore to catch Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, False Albacore, Atlantic Bonito (late April to early May), sharks, and possibly King Mackerel. For those looking for a bit more adventure, the 3/4 day, 6-hour charter goes up to 10 miles offshore, targeting the same species with a slim chance of encountering Mahi Mahi. The full-day, 8-hour charter ventures up to 23 miles offshore, offering opportunities to catch King Mackerel, Barracuda, Mahi Mahi, and even a rare encounter with a Sailfish.

The charters operate on a 26’ Sea Fox center console boat powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine, allowing a cruising speed of 24 knots. The boat is equipped with outriggers, downriggers, and a live bait well to ensure seamless trolling, letting you focus on catching fish.
