Born and raised on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, Captain Jack Graham has been fishing ever since he can remember. Drawn to the ocean at a very young age, he spent his childhood and teenage years fishing, surfing and spear fishing every nook and cranny the island had to offer.
When he began his professional career as a deckhand out of Oregon inlet, Jack set his sights on not only excelling in fishing the waters of his home, but he set his sights on the international fishing stage. In addition to his exploits here at home, Jack has been a deckhand and captain in some of the most remote and spectacular fisheries all over the planet. From Australia, to Fiji, to South America and Africa, his love and passion for the sport carried him near and far but eventually, he made his way back home.
Featured on National Geographic's hit tv show "Wicked Tuna," Captain Jack has been a staple of the Outer Banks fishing industry for years. Now, returning to Oregon inlet to head up the operation here at Afishionado Sportfishing, we are confident that whatever you may desire, be it a quest for a giant marlin or bluefin tuna, a box full of fish to take home for the freezer, or just a relaxing day in the Gulf Stream with friends or family, Captain Jack Graham will do everything he can to deliver the trip and fish of a lifetime.
With the 2020 summer looking kind of strange to a young college graduate, first mate Joe Jenkins quickly found his niche in the cockpit of one of our renowned Oregon inlet charter boats. Thrust straight into the fire of the high stakes tournament game in Ocean City, he quickly made a name for himself both at home and in marinas up and down the east coast. Mates and captains quickly took notice of his dedication and passion for the sport, and his boundless enthusiasm as he led his anglers fish successfully to the gaff.
Unsure of his plans for the upcoming season, we swiftly scooped him up early in the fall and nailed down his slot as cockpit commander on the newly renovated and christened "Afishionado." Joe possesses an excitement and love for fishing that is hard to match among even the most dedicated deck hands in the business. His commitment to gear work and bait preparation will ensure that your party will not have to worry about a thing when the action starts. A student of the sport, and a lifelong outer banker, Joe Jenkins is sure to entertain and instill confidence in your party and promises to make your day a memorable one!
