Captain Greg Tippett grew up on the waters of Eastern North Carolina fishing the coastal bays and marshes. With a primary focus on Red Drum, Speckled Trout, Flounder, and Striper, he understands the local populations and area. At a young age, the love of fishing was instilled in Captain Greg by his father and grandfather. As his passion for inshore fishing grew, Captain Greg decided to begin a new venture, Topwater Guide Co. Chartering has further allowed Captain Greg to share his knowledge and passion with friends and clients alike.

​Family Days with Lucky Dawg Guide Service are just that, a family day on the water in which each person in the family is included in the activities. Capt. Chad makes sure you trip is filled with memories and that each person on board has a great time. There are lots of actives to choose from and each trip can be tailored to what your group wants to do. This style trip is centered around the things us locals like to do when we have a day on the water to enjoy with our family. #livelikealocal is a true laid back enjoyable day on the water. We can set crab pots, hit the islands and go shelling, do some clamming, do a little fishing, go swimming, have a picnic and/or just hang out on the sand bar. You decide what activities you want to do and we do it. Its really a fun, stress free, relaxing day on the water you will be sure to remember. Kids are always welcome. 4 hrs $350 / 6 hrs $450 based on 3 people. There is a 6 person limit. Ask the Captain for pricing on parties over 3.

Quite simply, a family day trip is what ever you want it to be.  We offer Fishing, Clamming, Crabbing, Eco-Tours, Shell Hunting and Island Hopping.  Activities vary from Captain to Captain.  Call us to find out which ones do which.  You can choose whatever you want to do for as long as you want to do it.  You can choose to only one or all of the activities if the Captain offers it.  It is tough to get a rambunctious 5 year old to sit still and fish for 4-8 hours but if the day is broken up into more activities children tend to have more fun.  We provide all the needed equipment, tackle and bait for the day.  All you need to bring is sunscreen, bug spray, drinks (beer and wine are OK, spirits are not), lunch and snacks.  Check out our captains below.
