About the "Lost Boy"

Captain Charlie "Lost Boy" Schoonmaker has been a lifelong resident of North Carolina.

He has seen all aspects of the ocean world and can appreciate each complete & varied area of the fishing and water community. Charlie has over 45 years of local knowledge and experience fishing the Beautiful Southeastern Coast of North Carolina (SENCland). He is your perfect Native South Eastern North Carolina Fishing Guide and Charter Captain.

Captain Charlie has been fortunate in having had the opportunity to travel and fish extensively in such countries as Venezuela for Billfish, Iceland for Atlantic Salmon on a Flyrod, Canada for Pike and Muskies, Mexico for Billfish, the Bahamas for Tuna, Billfish and the large Mahi Mahi, and the Caribbean. These travels have given the "Lost Boy" a greater understanding and appreciation of our world and its citizens, plus all the numerous tricks and techniques to catch all these different fish has been applied to his extensive local knowledge of catching fish here in SENCland! Having worked on Charter and Private boats in the Bahamas and the Caribbean during the past winters and springs for many years, the “Lost Boy“ has returned to Inland and Near-Coastal North Carolina fishing as a “For Hire“ IFC US Coast Guard Licensed Charter Captain (Master's License, 50 Ton rating).

Families and Children are always welcome and so are your Pet Dogs!

Captain Charlie's training as a professional educator (BA, History, 1969; MA, Guidance and Counseling, 1977) has given him the unique abilities as a captain, mate, and guide to teach numerous fishing skills to everyone and he takes great pleasure in working with young and old alike. When you find the "Lost Boy", he will be fishing, enjoying the world around him, and sharing his knowledge of the waters, equipment, and fish with others. The "Lost Boy" is a captivating storyteller, well versed in the culture and lore of Coastal North Carolina, universally known as the "Graveyard of the Atlantic." Charlie's positive outlook on life and quick wit are second to none and make him one of those unique individuals that you'll never forget.
