Captain Ash has been fishing all his life, from freshwater bass to Chesapeake Bay stripers and just about every saltwater fish off the coast of North Carolina. The name for his charter business stems from the idea that he wants to provide his clients with a safe, memorable, fun day on the water. But not stopping there, his goal is to provide the ultimate fishing experience for each angler. This means using light tackle, artificial lures, jigging, popping and other tactics that provide a visual, hands-on fishing experience. Arlen focuses on matching the targeted game fish with the latest in artificial baits and techniques. He also enjoys sharing his proficiency using live bait and traditional fishing methods like trolling and bottom fishing.
Ultimate Reaction Sportfishing operates from Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach and on the Cape Fear River out of Wilmington. Come aboard the "Ultimate Reaction I", a custom rigged 23' Contender with state of the art electronics and equipment. Captain Ash has outfitted the boat with a great selection of top of the line tackle and rigs to make your day of fishing a pleasurable experience. With his extensive local knowledge, whether trolling, jigging, popping or bottom fishing, Captain Ash knows the best spots to fish depending on the time of year and species targeted.
He offers 1/2 day, 3/4 day and full day trips and will custom tailor the charter to meet your specific needs. No cookie cutter, one size fits all experience here, each charter is tailored to the client. Whether you are new to saltwater fishing, a seasoned angler or a family looking for a pleasant outing, Captain Ash will listen to your desires then make recommendations based on those desires, sea conditions and what is biting.
Captain Ash also can take you on a memorable scenic cruise of the area, perhaps a sunset cruise, dolphin watching or a relaxing sightseeing trip. He also provides private guide services on your boat. This is an excellent way for those with a new boat or new to the area to maximize their knowledge of their electronics and other gear and to get to know the local water using their own boat.
