In memory of Captain Curtis Morris, who with over 30 years of experience in leading charters, oversaw the construction and completion of Annie O from hull to mast, stem to stern.
My name is Nathan Newlin. I am a North Carolina native and have had a passion for hunting and fishing since I was a young boy. I began to pursue fishing for work at age 16 and at age 21 began fishing for a living full time. I have spent the last 11 seasons charter fishing out of Morehead City and Oregon Inlet. I was fortunate enough to spend several winters fishing in Isla Mujeres Mexico and a fall on the Great Barrier reef in Australia. I was also a duck hunting guide for 3 winters in Arkansas. I have a great family here in Morehead that I love spending time with. Look forward to fishing with you and making your trip the best day possible.
Captain Brad Sutton
Captain Brad grew up boating and fishing on the Trent River in New Bern, and has fished the coastal waters of North Carolina since he was five years old. His love for hunting and fishing has continued into adulthood as he takes trips around the country and the world, exploring new places and meeting people who share his passion.
When he is not fishing and hunting, you can find Captain Brad cheering for his alma mater and favorite sports team - the NC State Wolfpack! Captain Brad attended NC State University in the 80’s having idolized the school since his childhood. Though NC State has his heart, he shows his support of other North Carolina schools by providing lawn care to the athletic fields at UNC Chapel Hill, Duke, East Carolina, Meredith College, UNC Pembroke, UNC Wilmington, and many high schools.
Captain Brad fulfilled his lifelong goal of becoming a boat captain and currently holds his 100 ton master license. Annie O was born out of a dream to own a boat with a Guthrie hull. Captain Brad had his eye on the prize and purchased the hull in 2015; since then, he has poured his heart and soul into transforming the shell into the beautiful boat the Annie O is today. “I enjoy taking people out fishing and seeing the smiles and excitement on their faces when they catch the big one!”
