The Fishin’ Frenzy is a 53-foot Custom Carolina Sportfish with a 16-foot beam. She was built in 1977 by Captain Billy Holton. The Carolina hull design powered by a 1100 hp Caterpillar diesel enables her to comfortably cruise at 25 knots. The Fishin’ Frenzy has been expertly maintained and refitted to give our customers the safest, most comfortable offshore fishing experience possible.
Our salon is designed for the comfort of our guests. An onboard generator provides the power for heat and air conditioning, a microwave and outlets located throughout the salon. We keep our salon at a comfortable temperature year round, and even our head (rest room) is air-conditioned. A sound system complete with cd player and Sirius satellite radio is also available.
In our spacious cockpit, three teak fighting chairs are ready to comfortably help you tackle any battle we may encounter. We take pride in caring for you catch, and our insulated ice storage and fish boxes are the ticket for bringing back the finest quality fish in the fleet.
On the bridge, we have all the equipment required to make your day safe and productive. Our electronics include two VHF radios, Globalstar satellite telephone, two GPS units, a Simrad autopilot, a Furuno RADAR and Furuno color depth sounder.
Captain Greg has been fishing professionally for more than 25 years and for fun since he could hold a fishing rod. He began his career at the Jersey Shore working on inshore and offshore charter and head boats. Between fishing seasons, Greg received his BS in Biology from Bates College in Lewiston Maine. Greg has fished from Maine to Florida, Mexico, the Bahamas, and even Baja California, catching everything from fluke to giant bluefin tuna in his inflatable fishing boats. In 1991, he moved to the Outer Banks and joined the Oregon Inlet Fleet. Captain Greg has been at the helm of the Fishin’ Frenzy since 1999.
