Fishin Fannatic Sportfishing

Capt. Mark Fann Wanchese, NC Incorporated Licensed Insured

Fishing Fannatic Sportfishing is based out of Wanchese, NC – the Outer Banks.  Known as the “Billfish Capital of the World”, the Outer Banks, NC (OBX) is one of the best destinations for sport fishing.  With thousands of fish year-round, the OBX is the quintessential locale for both inshore and offshore fishing.  You can head offshore to enjoy the open water and catch some serious sportfish.  If that’s outside your comfort zone, book an nearshore charter to enjoy fishing while staying closer to shore.  This is a great trip for families with younger children.

Captain Mark invites your aboard the Fishin Fannatic, a 53’ Viking Sportfisher with twin Man engines that allow you to cruise along at 28 knots.  Equipped with all the latest navigation and safety technology, Captain Mark and his crew will have you on the fish in no time.  If you want a break from the action, there is a 17’ cockpit with ample room for all guests along with all the amenities for you to cruise in comfort including a fully air-conditioned salon, wrap around couches and a spotless restroom.

Born and raised in South Florida, Captain Mark now calls the Outer Banks home.  He has over 38 years of experience fishing all along the East Coast and the Bahamas.  For Captain Mark and his crew, fishing is more than a job, it’s their passion. They strive to give every guest the best sportfishing adventure possible.

Fishing Fannatic Sportfishing is a family friendly charter. Anglers of all ages and skill levels are welcome aboard.  And don’t worry about having to bring your own equipment.  They will give you the rods, reels, bait and tackle.  They even provide the fishing license.  All you have to bring are your own snacks, drinks and sunscreen.

Nearshore, Offshore, Half Day, Full Day, even and overnight trip – at Fishing Fannatic Sportfishing, there is a trip for everyone.  While on your sportfishing adventure you will be targeting species such as Tuna, Kingfish, Amberjack, Cobia, Sharks and Wahoo, amongst others.

The waters of the OBX are home to some of the most sought after gamefish in the world…and Captain Mark knows how to find them! Join them on the Fishin’ Fannatic and experience the finest charter sportfishing available on the Outer Banks!  There’s no better way to create memories with the family that will last a lifetime then going fishing!  Whether it is your first sportfishing trip, or you’re an experienced angler looking to learn some new techniques, the captain and crew at Fishing Fannatic Sportfishing would love to share their knowledge with you.
