About Us


Welcome to Chaser Sportfishing!

Chaser hails from the world famous Hatteras, North Carolina. The Outer Banks, particularly the area of Hatteras, has long been regarded as one of the best fishing destinations in the world.

The Gulf Stream is a warm ocean current which flows north and passes closer to Hatteras than any other point north of Florida. The Labrador Current is a cold current which flows south along the coast of North Carolina.The meeting of these two currents creates diverse fishing opportunities year-round.

We take groups of 6 or less to nearshore/offshore waters.
Full Day Offshore: 5:30-6:00 AM Departure
Half Day Nearshore: 6:30-7:00 AM or 12:00-12:30 PM Departures

The Boat

The Chaser is a 48-foot custom Carolina boat built locally in 1994 by Island Boat Works. She was built using the traditional Carolina flare. This unique feature allows her to cut through the short steep chop often found in North Carolina fishing waters without compromising stability and a gentle ride. Powered by twin diesel CAT C-9 engines she cruises comfortably at 25 knots enabling a quick trip to the gulf stream.

Chaser offers a spacious temperature controlled salon with two large seating areas and a kitchen equipped with a refrigerator, sink, and microwave. For your entertainment, a TV/DVD/Stereo system.

Chaser docks at Hatteras Harbor Marina in beautiful Hatteras Village.

The Crew

Chaser Sportfishing is pleased to announce that we have a new captain aboard. Captain Jeremy Johnson will be joining us for the upcoming year. Jeremy took his first offshore trip at 10 years old and was hooked. His love for fishing turned into a career when he moved to Hatteras in 2006. He has worked on numerous charter boats over the past 11 years and has had his 100 ton Masters license since 2009. Jeremy will work hard to put you on the fish and ensure that you and your party have an unforgettable trip.
