Captain Steele Park has been on a boat fishing the oceans, rivers, and lakes of Southeastern North Carolina since he was 7 years old. To say he knows these waters like the back of his hand is an understatement.  He's also gotten to know the waters between here and the Caribbean pretty well, running fishing trips and participating in tournaments throughout the Bahamas and other exquisite locales. 

After college, he joined the United States Navy and served on the USS John F. Kennedy and later rejoined to serve with the Seabees. He obtained his captain's license in 2010 and started running charters in Brunswick County, NC. Although he grew up in Raleigh, he calls Southport, NC home. 

Captain Steele will ensure every charter has a great time making unforgettable memories. 

Captain Steele Park with Catherine Anne Sportfishing and Excursions


The Catherine Anne fleet consists of three boats - the perfect amount of flexibility to customize your most memorable experience on the water. Our primary boat is Catherine Anne II, a 32-foot Regulator, which we use for most of our adventures - everything from a day at the beach to inshore and nearshore fishing, as well as, up to 100 miles offshore. Our secondary local boat is our 19-foot Carolina Skiff, To The Point. The perfect size boat for small groups that want to cruise around the backwaters and take it easy. Lastly, our travel boat, the Catherine Anne, a 43-foot classic Rybovich, prefers to venture out a little further from home, so if you're thinking you rather catch fish in the Bahamas, an international fishing or tournament charter opportunity is another great option for adventure.

Catherine Anne II is the main boat in our fleet

The Catherine Anne II is our primary charter boat, perfect for powering out to the Gulf Stream for trophy fish, whether you wish to go trolling, live-baiting, or bottom fishing for a large variety of species native to our waters. When we are not fishing, there is plenty of space and comfortable seating to cruise to Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach, Southport, Bald Head Island, Holden Beach, Ocean Isle Beach or Calabash to have a great day/evening on the water and enjoy some fantastic local dining.
