North Carolina Deep Sea Fishing
Captain Mike Hoffman hails from Wilmington, North Carolina; Middle Sound to be exact. Middle Sound is that area between or adjacent to Wrightsville Beach, Figure Eight Island, Wilmington, and Top Sail Beach for over 20 years. A prominent charter captain in the area, he is often the go-to guy when seeking information or a great day on the water.
A friend of mine, a Navy SEAL but US Army retiree, won as the highest bidding donation at a fund raiser in Wilmington NC. The prize? A half day fishing charter with each of the ten charter captain participants. And so it was, I met Capt. Mike when my friend invited me to join him for his half-day on the water.
Since that first trip, I have fished with Capt. Mike more than 20 times both inland and offshore. Inland, we hit the strippers in the river and Drum, Trout, Bass, and flounder inland and Mahi, Cobia, Mackerel, and even tuna on one occasion off shore. Capt. Mike seems to find the fish each outing.
Capt. Mike’s son, Michael is a great fisherman in his own right. He earned his Capt’s charter license in 2018 and fishes on his own merit. Both are on Facebook and the internet, the elder at Wilmington.fish and the junior at NCfishingcharters.com
