Captain: Lee Johnson
The Lisa J is a 34-foot custom design open boat by Irving Forbes, Steve Matthews, and Lee Johnson and constructed by Captain Lee Johnson himself. With an 11 foot beam she provides a smooth, dry ride out to the fishing grounds.
A 420 Cummins diesel engine powers the Lisa J which givers her a top speed of 31 knots. The Lisa J is an open boat with a tower and hard top for shade and a center console which gives bathroom privacy. She is equipped with state of the art full navigation/communications electronic system, including a USB port, a trolling valve, bow thruster, and an 80 gallon live well.
---FOR THE REMAINDER OF JULY 2021, CAPT. LEE WILL BE OPERATING A 20 FT. SKIFF WHILE THE F/V LISA J. IS UNDER MAINTENANCE---
Lee Johnson, a native of Wanchese, NC, is a third generation charter boat captain with nearly 30 years fishing experience out of Oregon Inlet Fishing Center. Lee's passion for fishing was ignited in early childhood fishing the docks of Wanchese and spending many long days on the water with his grandfather.
Following in his father's footsteps, Lee spent 16 years as an offshore mate both out of Oregon Inlet Fishing Center and out of the country during the winter months, working with many outstanding captains such as Harry Baum, Paul Spencer, Dean Johnson, Arch Bracher, Billy Maxwell, and Barry Sawyer.
