Jack’s Waterfront Bar on the Morehead City Waterfront will be the host site for the Fourth Annual Fishermen’s Village on Saturday, October 7, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This is the real deal with tours of a working 90’ shrimp trawler, meet and Greet with reality TV stars of the Wicked Tuna NATGEO show, games, touch tanks, mock retail market, net-hanging demos, and working commercial fishermen and families serving up authentic, Carteret Catch North Carolina seafood!

A working shrimp trawler operated by Beaufort Inlet Seafood will be docked at Jack’s so the public can experience “a day in the life of a commercial fishermen.” A tasting of fresh-boiled shrimp and other North Carolina seafood served with special sauces made with “Svedka Vodka,” one of our event sponsors.
After the event, David Murphy, the winner of the Carteret Catch Raffle, and 5 of his guests will be served a four course dinner and wine pairings, featuring Chef Ricky Moore of Saltbox Seafood Joint in Durham, on the shrimp trawler.
