"We can personally attest to the great times we have had with Captain Charley.  We personally caught a 176 BLUE FIN on one of our two trips.  That was a once in a lifetime experience and what great eating ...for a long time.  Our other trip was filled with lots of mauhi-mauhi (dolphin fish) and that was also a great day on the waters as well.  Charlie also has a brand new boat this year with more comforts than any of the local fleet can offer. " 

try it for yourself.....sincerely, NCDEERMAN





If you book a trip with Captain Charley in 2014, he will personally pay you $50 (of course limit one payment per trip) so make sure you book the trip and claim your money.  ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS TELL HIM YOU SAW HIS AD ON NCDEERMAN AND HIS OFFER TO PAY YOU $50.

THE CAPTAIN: Capt. Charley Pereira - I grew up fishing in Coconut Grove, Florida, with occasional weekend and summer fishing trips in the Keys and Bahamas. My first trips from about age 4 involved cane poles from docks and sea walls with my brother Will. The water was very clear with not much pollution back then and we were stoked to catch beautiful reef fish via sight casting. Seeing the fish react to our presence and that of our line, tackle, and bait, and then seeing what happened when we tried to set the hook, taught us the basic instincts and techniques required to successfully catch fish.
I enjoy charter clients of all types - experienced or beginner. Whether your goal is to crush a limit of yellowfin and get back to the dock early, win a big-money marlin or tuna tournament, or stay out all day learning how to rig for and catch a variety of fish, I'll do my best to put you on the fish and help you have a good time on the water. I especially enjoy teaching youngsters how to fish and teaching all ages about the physics of fishing, which become increasingly important as fish size and strength increases. A 500 lb bluefin tuna or blue marlin is a lot easier to catch if you understand the physics involved in the tackle, angling technique, and boat maneuvering.
