Captain Barry Peele Jr. has been fishing the gulfstream waters off Hatteras professionally for over 30 years. The Native Son is a 48 ft. custom Carolina boat built by Captain Sheldon Midgett of Wanchese, NC with a smooth, comfortable 23 knot cruise to get you to the fishing grounds more quickly. We fish the Gulf Stream waters off Hatteras North Carolina in. Join us for some amazing fishing and a lot of fun and beautiful sights.
The Native Son has a large salon that provides ample room to stow your gear while relaxing comfortably in air conditioning on the way to and from the fishing spots. Bring along some of your favorite tunes in the form of CDs or Ipod for listening too during the day or enjoy our XM satellite radio. She is equipped with the latest electronics including a new Furuno color chart plotter, 1000 watt bottom machine and 36 mile radar. The Native Son has all Coast Guard required safety equipment on board.
You will find a wide variety of tackle onboard the Native Son. Whether you like to fish light tackle or don't want to work that hard we have the tackle to handle it. We have spinning reels, 30w's, 50w's, 80s and 80w's up to 130st's. We also have Shimano TLD 20's and 25's for some light tackle fishing for everything from White Marlin and Sailfish to live bait King Mackerel fishing in the fall.
The Native Son has a large cockpit with a three chair layout including one 130lb. Murray Brothers fighting chair and two smaller sailfish chairs. If you are into standup fishing, don't hesitate to ask; we have some gear for that too including Braid and Black Magic harnesses.
