We are family friendly and have been fishing on the east coast for over 36 years!

Our Captain

Experienced Captain Jerry Elliott has been fishing the east coast for 36 years and met lots of very nice people from all over. When you book your trip with Sudden Impact you are dealing personally with the Captain/Owner. You are not dealing with a marina, booking service or tackle shop where commissions are involved. We encourage you to compare our unbeatable price, experience and boat amenities.

The Experience

The Sudden Impact was custom built for charter fishing with twin Cat. Engines, Radar, GPS, Depth Sounder, Bathroom, AC, Heat, Micro Wave, and plenty of room in the cockpit with 3 chairs for you to enjoy your time fishing and cruising on the water. Sudden Impact fishes the Atlantic Ocean off Morehead City, N.C. where these waters offer an unbeatable variety of fishing opportunities including Yellowfin Tuna, Marlin, and Mackerel just to name a few, and for all experience levels from family groups, beginners to expert. The thrill of a child catching their first fish and enjoying the experience is priceless. We have seen beginners return and progress to offshore fishing and some who still enjoy the less serious inshore fun fishing. Along with a mate that takes time and very experienced with all types of fishing, we enjoy them all.
