Kahuna sportfishing charters

Capt. Reed Meredith Wanchese, NC Incorporated Licensed Insured

Captain Reed has been fishing offshore professionally for 24 years, running both charters and commercial fishing, and was featured on National Geographic channels “wicked tuna north vs south” in 2014-2015 season taking third place overall on the show!

Capt. Reed’s local knowledge of the Outer Banks area and fishing grounds is decades in the making and is what sets Kahuna Sportfishing Charters apart from the part time operations and keeps us on the fish.  The Kahuna sails from Oregon Inlet, North Carolina which is home to the  best offshore fishing the east coast has to offer!  We fish year round in the Gulf Stream waters east of the outer banks of NC for bigeye tuna, yellowfin tuna, mahi, wahoo, blue and white marlin, and in the winter months we target giant bluefin tuna.  Our trips depart at 5am and return around 4pm.   All tackle licenses, bait and ice are provided with cost of trip.

Kahuna Sportfishing Charters runs KAHUNA, a beautiful 45’ custom sportfishing boat that provides outstanding sea keeping ability plus all the comforts of home. Features onboard this luxury fishing vessel include A/C and heat, galley with microwave and refrigerator, large clean bathroom, ample seating, fighting chair, and the latest in navigation and media (including satellite TV and phones). We are very safety conscious with a life raft, EPIRB, and plenty of PFDs (Personal Floatation Devices) – including children’s jackets.

Depending on the time of year and what is in season will determine our fishing trip. From January to late April we go popping and jigging for giant Bluefin Tuna. A trip you won’t want to miss as it is the ultimate angling experience – an average size of these beasts are over 400 lbs.! From May to July the Yellowfin, Big Eyes, and Wahoo are on the move; and this is a great time to catch your tuna limits. From August to October the Dolphin, Tuna, Wahoo and Marlin are running. The best Marlin fishing you’ve ever seen anywhere is during this period. From October to December we target Wahoo, Tuna, Rockfish, and Bluefins.

Fishing in Outer Banks, North Carolina is a must-do for anyone in the area. And there’s no better private charter than Kahuna Sportfishing Charters. Book your next fishing adventure now!
