Instigator Sportfishing

Capt. Josh Wentling

Instigator Sport Fishing Charters hails out of Ocean City and is captained by Capt. Josh Wentling. We also seasonally fish out of Pirate’s Cove, Manteo, North Carolina.

We specialize in billfish fishing, pelagic fishing, dolphin fishing, and fishing for other nearshore and offshore species of fish from the coast of Ocean City to the Outer Banks.

Our fishing charters are run out of a meticulously maintained, and impressively outfitted, sport fishing charter boat called the Instigator.

Our charters and our boat are perfectly setup for corporate fishing outings, family fishing adventures, and serious tournament fishing.

The Captain

Capt. Josh Wentling

20 plus years of guiding experience, over $2,000,000 in tournament winnings, and a passion for putting people on fish and helping them have an amazing time on the water. Capt. Josh is is the charter captain for you!

The Boat

The Instigator

The Instigator is a spectacular custom-built 57′ Carolina sport fishing boat with twin diesel engines that are both powerful and extremely fast so that you will be spending more time fishing and less time boat riding.

The Fishing

Ocean City – Manteo, NC

Whether you prefer catching some tuna, mahi and wahoo for the grill, or you want to feel the pulse pounding runs of a white marlin or blue marlin, Instigator is the boat that can put you on the action you desire.
