Well I got a total of "zero" replies. So, we took our chances with one of the local charter captains. We went out on the Musicman with Capt. Dave Marshall and Mate Tommy. We had an awesome time and caught close to 30 Spanish Mackerel before the tide went slack and so did the bite. If you find yourself in Carolina Beach or Kure Beach North Carolina and are looking for a charter give Musicman Charters a call. They can carry up to 6 passengers on a 40 foot Sportfisherman and do both off-shore and river/inlet/near shore fishing.
