I have had the pleasure of chartering with Captain Bobby Bourquin many times and have never been disappointed. Not only does Bobby put you on the fish but he educates you about fishing. He keeps the "sport" in fishing and has made every trip a memorable one. By the end of the day its like you've been fishing with an old buddy!

I just wanted to say thank you again for the outstanding charter we took with you. As a longtime fisherman I have chartered many other boats but never with better results. I also greatly appreciated you flexibility and willingness to work with us on such short notice. Simply put, we had a blast and were more than happy with the day's fishing. I have recommended you to several of my friends and will continue to do so. I applaud your expertise and appreciation of value. My family thanks you again for the fishing and excellent treatment and we hope to do it again soon !

I have fished with Capt. Bobby Bourquin on several occasions and have never been disappointed. The experiences I have had aboard the Teezher were nothing short of perfect. Bobby has created the total fishing experience. From catching bait and helping with rigging to assisting with navigation and cleaning the catch. Bobby teaches as much as he guides and it is evident that he has a true passion and great knowledge when it comes to fishing. I am super excited to hear that Teezher Charters is back on the water and I look forward to tight lines and screaming drags with Bobby in the very near future and for many trips to come. If you are looking for a complete angling experience with a great professional then don't miss the boat!

Capt Bobby,

My husband and I along with Sammy and Amber Pugh had the pleasure of enjoying our first deep sea fishing experience with you and your mate on June 20, 2012. I wanted to thank you both for the experience of a lifetime! We enjoyed every minute and look forward to our next fishing trip with you guys.

Thank you,

April Bennett

We have gone out a few times with captain Bobby, and we love him! He knows the sea well and made our experience wonderful. He was very helpful with our boys and showed them how to reel in the biggest of big! My 10 year old got a citation (this is actually a good thing) for a 49 pound wahoo!!!! We plan on going every year with captain Bobby as long as he will have us!! Well worth every penny!

Hello Captain Bobby,
I am writing to say a heartfelt "Thank You" for taking such good care to make our June 8, 2010 Charter such a wonderful day for the Scott Family. We certainly enjoyed the day and the exciting fishing we experienced. From the time we left the Marina on that beautiful morning we knew we were in good hands and we are looking forward to the time when we can do this again. We have enjoyed one of many tasty meals from the catch. Of course I am now a fan of Cobia and Wahoo.
Thank you also for your terrific website and the description and photos from the "Great Adventure"
We have arrived home in Georgia with wonderful memories and I felt compelled to let you know that this was the highlight of the vacation.
Kind personal regards,
Jim Scott

Just wanted to thank you again for the unforgettable day you were able to make for me and my three boys.  Even if we had not caught any fish just being out in God's amazing world spending quality time with my sons was well worth it. I know you had to be dog a__ tired when you got back in because you worked all day at a pretty fast pace keeping us on the fish. We are very appreciative of the knowledge you shared with us. Again we thank you for making this a very successful fishing trip for us. PS my boys have watched the video of  our trip no telling how many times!

Capt. Bobby,

I have fished the Swansboro, Emerald Isle, and Crystal Coast area now for over 20 years and have used several of the fine local charter boat captains in that time. If you are looking for light tackle fun with a great Captain, look no further! Captain Bobby runs a tight ship with the finest in tackle and equipment and besides he is great fun to fish with!  Captain Bobby knows the area, the seasonal fishing and if Mother Nature allows we have never had a bad trip. I have caught Kings and Amberjack and many other species with his light tackle, live bait style. He knows the local events in the area and even gave me a heads up one year to go look for the sea turtles to hatch, that happened the next night near the Bogue Inlet Pier! How awesome is that! My son still talks about that night, to this very day! When my friends and family head to Emerald Isle, I always suggest they look up Captain Bobby. Try him! You won't be disappointed.

Capt Bobby,

This was the most amazing fishing experience of my life!!!

My wife got me this trip for my birthday. We went out on the Gulf Stream trip. We we not out there too long and Capt Bobby and his mate Robby had us on the fish. They were an incredible team to watch prep the lines and bait and just work everything so my buddies and I could reel in some big ones!

We caught a sailfish, 3 wahoo and 2 false albacore. We got citation certificates for the sailfish and the HUGE wahoo! These guys have been doing this for decades, but they were just as excited for us to land these giants as we were.

When Capt Bobby advertises a full day of  fishing , you get exactly that! Comfortable ride out. Plenty of room for 3 adults to fish and move around. Great music on board as well!

To top it off the absolute expertise and professionalism of Capt Bobby and his mate. They were the nicest guys to just hang out with and talk to all day long. When the day is over you have caught a LOAD of meat and made some cool friends. 

I will definitely be going out with these guys again in the future. We have talked about making this annual outing because it was so much fun! FISH ON!!!!!
