© 2016 Tall Tail Charters




Tall Tail Charters is based in Wilmington, NC and providing a wide variety of boating and Fishing Charters in the Wrightsville Beach area.  The boat is a fully rigged 33' Tiara Express Sportfish outfitted for anything from offshore sportfishing to inshore comfort cruises.  With twin 300hp Cummins diesel engines, she has the power to get you offshore in a hurry.  Tall Tail has Garmin Navigation/Sonar, Furuno Radar, AutoPilot and a second helm up top which allows the captain to navigate with a better vantage point on the fish. 


Fully rigged with Rupp Outriggers, freshwater and raw water washdown, livewells, massive fish boxes and bait prep station.  Tall Tail keeps all the rocket launchers loaded with Penn International 80w, 50w and 30w Gold Reels.  With a full cabin that sleeps 6, stand up bathroom, kitchenette, bean bag chairs for the ride out and helm seating for 8, Tall Tail is ready to put you on the fish in comfort.

Captain Jordan Messick has been fishing the waters of Onslow Bay for 14 years.  He moved to the area in 2004 to attend UNCW and immediately found a passion for spending time on the water fishing, diving and surfing.  Over the years he moved up from his initial 10' single wide john boat, to many center consoles and finally to the Tiara Sportfish he captains today.  Capt Jordan has fished around the world including Costa Rica, Barbados, Puerto Rico, Southern California, Florida, Nicaragua and incorporates their fishing style into his spread.

A note from the captain:

"We look forward to providing the watermans (or waterwomans) experience to everyone who visits the area.  Our goal is for people to not only have fun and catch fish, but to learn to fish aboard Tall Tail Charters.  On many charters, the guests are running the pit like pros before the trip is over and have confidence to go out on their own to fish. Its great to see them take charge and contribute to the success of the trip!"
