Welcome to the home of the
Reel Thrill / Team Bonesuckin' Sauce Fishing Team!
We're a group of dedicated anglers who love our time on the water. We fish the coastal waters of North Carolina, and are based out of Atlantic Beach, NC.
Most of our fishing time is spent chasing pelagic fishes such as King Mackerel, Wahoo, Dolphin (mahi mahi) and Amberjacks. We also like to bottom-fish for Groupers, Snappers and Sea Bass.
Our true love, though, is King Mackerel Tournaments. We compete in every event of the Division I category of the Southern Kingfish Association as well as most of the local, smaller events. There's nothing like the early morning rush and anticipation of catching bait, running the boat at top speed to your secret "honey hole" and putting out your best spread of baits, most times before everyone back on land even has their first cup of coffee!
North Carolina Anglers invented live-bait fishing for King Mackerel and continue to demonstrate their mastery of these skills every tournament. Maybe we're biased, but we firmly believe that the competition among NC King Mackerel tournament fisherman is the fiercest in the country. The "Thrill" of going up against other Division I anglers of the SKA in our own backyard is unbelievable, and we're fortunate to be afforded this opportunity.
We spend a tremendous amount of time on the water (a fact our wives are too happy to remind us of) and get to see and have many experiences that others only dream of. We have brought to boat many, many fish that others would consider the "Fish of a Lifetime". We've built this website to share our experiences with you and hopefully to help you in your quest to catch your own trophy fish.
If we ever fish against you in a SKA tournament, we wish you good luck. Hopefully you can win 2nd place!
