Captain Scott Crocker - 2300 E. Fort Macon Rd  Atlantic Beach, NC 28512





Welcome to Shackleford Charters Guide Service!




Welcome to Shackleford Charters where Capt. Scott Crocker specializes in light tackle and fly-fishing charters in the waters surrounding Beaufort, Morehead City and Atlantic Beach.  You will have the choice of fishing out of either a fast and roomy 23' Sea Craft Center Console or a 20' Jones Brothers Skiff.  Anglers will enjoy the comfortable ride of the deep-v Sea Craft famed for its smooth ride and the lack of fumes will be evident from the 250 hp Suzuki 4-stroke outboard.  The combination makes for a very enjoyable and quiet ride whether trolling for kings off the beach or chasing albacore from the bow.  Flycasters will particularly enjoy the huge front casting platform and extremely shallow draft of the skiff for going after tailing redfish on the flats. 

I want to extend an invitation to you and your family to join me aboard either of my boats for a day on the water that can range from educational to exhilarating to thoroughly relaxing depending on the type of adventure you choose to enjoy.  I welcome you to explore the variety of trips I offer in my Boats/Rates and Exploration Trips pages.

All safety equipment is USCG approved.
