We’re into our billfish season which has had an excellent start for the fleet. This is a great opportunity to take advantage of a prime fishing date that is not usually available. Give us a call 252-216-7071 or book online! Let’s go fishing!

Yesterday’s break in the weather allowed for a fun day with a nice catch of Tuna and a Sailfish release. Great work Pelican crew!

Great Catch

The Postlethwait crew enjoyed an excellent catch of Dolphin, Yellowfin Tuna and a Sailfish release! Nice work guys!


Wyatt released three White Marlin, a Sailfish and a Blue Marlin along with a 38lb Dolphin, Tuna and Wahoo!! Little brother Grant released his first White Marlin and also landed Tuna, Wahoo and Dolphin! Wyatt and Grant Bailey are two extraordinary young anglers who had an unforgettable 2020 season on the Pelican! Way to go Bailey crew!

Memorable year! Great job!

Coming into September hot! Great work Owens crew and a big congratulations to the ladies for releasing their first Blue Marlin!!

Excellent Marlin Fishing!
We’re having an exciting billfish season! Many “first billfish” releases which has been an incredible experience to be a part of! Notably, Weston Burgan at nine years of age released his first White Marlin! The Moran crew released ten billfish for a two day total; Scott Bush and his crew enjoyed an exciting fight with a nice Blue Marlin in addition to all their White Marlin releases and the Horiuchi ended the week nicely today with Courtney releasing her first White Marlin three times over along with Jonathan releasing his first three Whites and Brett completing his personal grand slam releasing a White and a bonus Sailfish. Our superstar niece Charley started all this fun releasing her first White Marlin competing as a junior angler in the Alice Kelly tournament earlier this month. Exciting times!! Most importantly, we’re grateful to be included in such remarkable and memorable moments!
