Light Tackle Fishing Adventures

Welcome to Breakday Charters!

I am Captain Justin Ragsdale owner and operator. We are a three vessel charter platform that lets us provide you with MARSH2OCEAN fishing adventures including inshore, nearshore, and offshore fishing charters out of Atlantic Beach located on the beautiful and wild Crystal Coast of North Carolina.

Our home waters stretch from the Lower Pamilico Sound and Neuse River system through the inshore sound waters surrounding Morehead City, Beaufort, and Harkers Island and continue into the Atlantic Ocean via Beaufort Inlet permitting access to the bountiful nearshore waters of Cape Lookout on out to the famed Gulf Stream waters of the Big Rock.

Does the thump of a Speckled Trout inhaling your jig scratch your itch? Does seeing that cruising cobia turn and inhale your bucktail weaken your knees? Does hearing the screaming drag after a king mackerel skies the bait and heads for the horizon satisfy your addiction? Or is that mahi lit up and leaping for the sky after crushing a bait in the spread your weakness? No matter, We Do It All! Trolling, Casting, Jigging, Bottom Fishing, Artificial Bait, Live Bait, Dead Bait and always on the lightest tackle suitable for the job.

From novice to experienced, child to adult, all are welcome and we look forward to spending a quality day with you on the water. The day is about you; after all, you aren’t at work, school, or trying to finish that list of chores, IT’s YOUR BREAKDAY, GO FISH! Easy is our attitude: When fishing aboard our vessels your covered on licensing. All bait and tackle is supplied (some seasonal exceptions on live bait). And excepting offshore trips fish cleaning is included. All adding up to fewer things to worry about. Bring your food and drink, sunglasses, hats, seasonal appropriate clothing, sunscreen, Ziploc bags, and positive mental attitude and lets depart on your next fishing adventure.

Fishing Fun! I once had to be the one who was catching all the fish, but after fatherhood, it dawned on me the importance of sharing the angling experience and the smile it brings to the face regardless if it is the first fish or the thousandth fish. I want this sport to survive and I want the resource and opportunities to be there for our following generations. I support catch and release and I support harvesting of fish, but let us not take more than we can utilize. I will work hard to put you on fish, but I will point out that sunrise setting the sky on fire, those gliding pelicans mere inches off the wave, that huge leatherback turtle loafing, or the frolicking pod of porpoise. My goal is your full immersion for the ultimate angling experience.

Tight Lines,

Captain Justin
