First Light Charters

Welcome aboard First Light Charters! They love being on the water for the first light of the day with a fishing rod in hand. Captain Chris was raised in Kitty Hawk and grew up fishing, surfing, and hunting all over the Outer Banks. Whether you are on a hot bite or just taking in a new perspective of the Outer Banks, Captain Chris loves to show you a good time! Ask questions! He wants this to be a fun learning experience!

Start your light tackle inshore fishing aboard a 21’ flat bottom Carolina skiff. The skinny draft of a flat bottom boat helps you get into the shallow waters that many boats cannot access. Capt. Chris chooses to fish in a Carolina skiff because of its stability and open fishing area. You can comfortably fish with 3 anglers on board.

The trips focus on cruising through narrow marsh passages and over grass flats in search of Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, and Striped Bass. If you’re looking to stay in sight of land and catch some dinner our trip is for you! This is safe family-friendly fun!

As parents, the crew recommends your children are 5 years old or more to come aboard. The boat ride can be a little bumpy for youngsters. They are outfitted with youth life jackets that must be worn at all times for children under 12.

Once aboard, you are covered by an NC blanket fishing license. The crew outfits the boat with new Penn fishing rods and reels yearly. All tackle and bait are also included. Capt. Chris makes sure all you have to do is cast and reel them in!

Come get on the water with First Light Charters!

    Morning trips are guests' favorite. Conditions are more likely to be calmer early as you get into the summer months. You'll target a number of different fish on the flats and near the marshes. No better way to start the day than looking for fish with a coffee in hand!

I grew up on the Outer Banks fishing, surfing, and hunting. Taking advantage of what the ocean or the sound has to offer is a daily endeavor living here!
