Rates & Booking


The maximum guests for each charter type is chosen to provide the best professional and family friendly experience on your fishing, clamming, or sight seeing experience.

Fishing Times

Fishing is based on solar time so our departure will vary depending on the times of the sunrise and sunset. Typically the half-day morning and full day charter will start shortly after sunrise. The morning charter will return after 4 hours which is shortly before lunch. The afternoon charter will leave shortly after lunch and return after about 4 hours.

The evening flounder gigging will leave shortly before sunset and last between 5 and 6 hours.

OBX Charter Fishing

“Remember that the waves and wind may tip the boat but only you can tip the captain.”

I work to provide you an exceptional time back-country fishing, bow fishing, flounder gigging, or clam digging in the Pamlico Sound. It is customary to provide a 20% tip for an exceptional experience.

“How many passengers can you take?”, is a common question. I am able to carry 6 passengers, but for a better overall fishing experience I recommend 4 passengers. Many days we are fishing super shallow grass flats and having 6 anglers makes it nearly impossible to get where we need to fish. In other words, 6 sumo wrestlers in a 26′ boat is too much. The reason I take 6 passengers is that I like to accommodate family groups with kids.
