Fistful Sportfishing proudly customizes Outer Banks charter fishing adventures to the angler’s preferences and desires. We listen to YOU, the client, and make recommendations based on personal requests from the members in your party, the location and availability of desired targeted species, the sea and weather conditions as well as the overall expectations you have for your day. We love all-day hardcore off-shore charter fishing excursions for trophy billfish like marlin, backwater inshore sound fishing charters for striped bass, half-day relaxing near-shore fun trips for spanish mackerel and everything in between. Our client log includes a wide variety of individuals, friends, families, professional groups, club members and trophy seekers. We strive to make every trip, no matter what the style, the most memorable and enjoyable day you can experience. Customer service and satisfaction are our main goals and our greatest reward is to see you and your party smile throughout the day, taking home memories that will last a lifetime. All of the members in your party will be thrilled you chose Fistful Sportfishing!


32' Topaz Sport Fisher
The Fistful is a totally customized 32 foot Topaz Sportfisher. The hull was built in 1985 and has been completely remodeled in 2010. She is powered by twin diesel engines and cruises at 20 knots. All the equipment and conveniences expected in a sport fishing vessel are accounted for. Her electronics consist of the Navnet 2 GPS/Sonar/Radar system with real-time weather and sea condition information, additional Furuno Sonar Machine, Backup GPS Unit, Autohelm, and VHF radios. She complies with or exceeds all state and federal safety regulations (including life raft and EPIRB) and all state and federal permitting requirements. She has an enclosed cabin with dinette, queen bow berth, galley (with refrigerator, microwave, and cook top), stereo system with CD player, and a private head (restroom). AIR CONDITIONING for those hot summer days and heat for winter voyages for ocean running rockfish. Her lower helm station is enclosed for your comfort, shade, and protection and opens into a large fishing cockpit. A second helm station is located on the bridge and provides an incredible view point for finding the fish. In-deck fish boxes coupled with additional on deck storage (if necessitated by the day) provide ample space to store your catch. She is a smooth boat, handles well in all seas, and fishes like a dream… we are proud of our Fistful.
