Offshore Fishing Charters

Crystal Coast's Morehead City Charter Fishing at its Finest!

The southern tip of North Carolina's Outer Banks, also known as the Crystal Coast, offers some of the world's best fishing. These fishing grounds are easily accessed by the custom built 56' Dancin Outlaw docked at the Morehead City Waterfront.

Local fishing legend Thomas Wood started the Dancin Outlaw business over 25 years ago. Thomas retired from operating the Dancin Outlaw in the spring of 2020. His hand picked successor, Joey Rivenbark, now operates the Dancin Outlaw and continues to build upon the fish catching reputation of the Dancin Outlaw.

Joey's fishing credentials are impressive. He's finished first and second place catch and release, caught the first blue marlin to 500 lbs and largest dolphin in the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament. Joey has run charter boats, private boats and fished tournaments all up and down the east coast as well as other destinations like Mexico and the Bahamas. Joey stays in tune with the fishing conditions and can cater a charter trip to meet your wants and needs. There is nothing Joey likes more than making lasting memories for people who head out to sea on the Dancin Outlaw.

The Dancin Outlaw is fully equipped for virtually any fish species along the Crystal Coast. Joey and crew routinely target offshore species including Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), Wahoo, Grouper and Amberjack. Inshore catches include Spanish and King Mackerel, Cobia, Bluefish, Sharks and Albacore. Joey can also give you the opportunity for specialized trips to target Bluefin Tuna and Swordfish. You may want to fill up your freezer with great tasting fish or you may want that once in a lifetime chance at a grander Blue Marlin. Your experience on the Dancin Outlaw can be enhanced by the routine sightings of dolphins, sea turtles, a variety of sea-birds and occasionally whales.

Joey has the experience, knowledge and equipment to make your fishing expedition a dream come true. If you're just starting out and want to learn more about fishing, Joey and his mate are happy to share his knowledge with you including bait rigging, areas to fish and what to look for in the water. If you're more interested in the catching part, Joey and his mate will make sure you're rigged and ready. Children are welcome!
