BlackBird Guide Services was founded on the love of being outdoors, creating long lasting relationships and of course fishing.

We realize that fishing is just as much about having good conversation, making memories and a downright good time just as much as it is about catching fish. I truly believe that this business is all about creating lasting relationships and providing the best guide experience possible. I implement this on all my fishing trips and realize that everyone is different and has different needs. I will always do my best to accommodate you and making your fishing trip one to remember.

The most common fishing charters in Wilmington are inshore fishing charters. An inshore fishing charter generally ranges from 4-8 hours long and we can accommodate up to 2 anglers.

On these trips you will have your shot on a variety of inshore species. Here in Wilmington we do have a year round fishery so there is always a fish to go out there and target.

Everyone that we take out on a fishing charter gets to experience the beauty of the inshore waters here in the Wilmington area. Many people see the marsh from the outside, riding down the intracoastal waterway. To us the real beauty of this place resides within the winding curves of the creeks deep within the marsh or in the open shallow bays. Many people never get to experience this hidden beauty. When fishing in these areas it is not uncommon to see an abundance of wildlife like see sea turtles, dolphins and stingrays while we target species that include Red Drum, Black Drum, Speckled Trout, Flounder and Sheepshead.

What if we don’t know anything about fishing?

This is no problem what so ever, by the end of the trip you will know much more than you did when you stepped on the boat.

What will we catch?

This is very season dependent, but the inshore species we target include Red Drum, Black Drum, Speckled Trout, Flounder and Sheepshead. Red Drum are here all year long but certain times of year they can either be spread out of very schooled up. The bigger schools of Red Drum are generally in the Fall, Winter and Spring time while in the warmer months those schools begin to break up spread out within the marsh. Speckled Trout as most prevalent in the Falls Months. Sheepshead and Flounder as generally here in the most numbers in the summer months.

As your hired guide in Wilmington, it is my duty to place you in the right spot with the right equipment to have a day you won’t soon forget.

To make this happen I am always on the hunt for the targeted species and will supply my anglers with the best and most reliable equipment in the industry. We welcome all types of anglers, a fly fisherman looking to sight fish shallow water redfish, a new fisherman looking to learn the ropes and have a good time or a couple looking to do a little bit of everything we are happy to cater to any type of fisherman.

There are not many things that come with 100% certainty in the fishing world, but there is a handful of things that I can promise you will happen: I will be at the pickup location on time and ready to fish with a stocked and clean boat and I promise we will have fun.
