Capt. Amanda King


Go Fishing with Me.

Second Wind Fishing ​

​​Capt Amanda King is native to eastern NC and is a fish & wildlife nerd! She is a UNCW SEAHAWK Alumna, 2005 & 2019, BA in K-12 Education & Biology.  So naturally she spends most days on the water, fishing, exploring, and teaching marine science education.  She specializes in light tackle inshore fishing for Flounder, Trout, Redfish, Black Drum, and Tripletail in and around the shallow bays off the Cape Fear River.  

Capt Amanda is a well-rounded fisherman and seaworthy Capt.  She started her saltwater resume 25+ years ago offshore with Wahoo, Sailfish, Mahi, Grouper but found her true passion was chasing fish in the skinny marsh creeks. She has both won and placed in several tournaments, inshore & offshore. 

Currently Capt Amanda owns a 198 DLV Elite Carolina Skiff powered by a Yamaha 115hp outboard - perfect for getting in skinny water!
