WaterDog Guide Service
Welcome to WaterDog Guide Service! Serving the Beaufort, Morehead, Atlantic Beach area, Captain Tom Roller specializes in light-tackle and fly-fishing charters.
Even today, North Carolina saltwater fishing is often synonymous with big-game, Gulf Stream fishing. However, many anglers are now discovering the exciting and less expensive alternative to off-shore fishing. In protected waters and within sight of land, the miles of undeveloped barrier islands, winding tidal marshes and three local inlets offer countless opportunities for fisherman to tangle with dozens of species. From flounder and false albacore to mahi-mahi and amberjacks ? we do it all. Anglers, fly-casters and children of all experience levels are welcomed!

Tailing Tide Guide Service
Captain John Mauser is a fly fishing and light tackle guide out of Swansboro, North Carolina. He has been fishing the waters of North Carolina for over twenty five years. John spent his early years on the Chowan River in the North East part of the state hunting for bluegill and bass. The Chowan river was also the location where he first cast a flyrod…throwing little popping bugs at lily pads in search of bass. In his teenage years, he became more familiar with the great saltwater fishing available along the coast. John graduated from UNC Wilmington with a Marine Biology Degree and soon started working for the North Carolina Aquariums. He and his wife Kim, have a three year old son, Tucker, who always keeps life interesting.

Most of the time, John can be found poling his skiff in the inshore waters, from Beaufort to New River, and all points between. His favorite target is the redfish…but he also spends time chasing spanish mackerel, bluefish, speckled trout, sharks, and countless other species. During the Spring spawning run, John fishes for Shad, Striped Bass and other species that are found in North Carolina’s Coastal Rivers. John looks foward to sharing his love for the the waters of the Carolina Coast with others.

What we aim to provide, is a fun day on the water and long lasting memories of your trip. We aren’t concerned with big egos and trying to load coolers with fish. You can expect to have a captain that will give his 100% to show you a great time, teach you something new, and introduce you to the beauty of coastal North Carolina.
