Be flexible as it's early in the season (mid-April) and fishing can be hit or miss then. I hoped for Drum and booked a charter trip. Unfortunately the fleet hadn't been catching them so we switched to catfish in the sound, but got skunked there. Three other charters got skunked that afternoon as well so I place no blame on Captain nor crew. I brought gear to surf fish (soaking bait) from the beach but got skunked there as well. The drum were in short supply. Plugging the surf was fruitless because I targeted the wrong species. Other surfcasters were doing okay on speckled trout, which I hadn't planned for. That's on me. The Nags Head and Jennette fishing piers were very productive (mullet) and my grandkids were happy catching them and the occasional skate (ray) and pufferfish. I would recommend checking in early with the tackleshops and gear up from their advice, rather than doing too much planning up front...

1. Make certain of where the boat is docked or sails from. This will help in planning for drive time depending on whether you have an early morning or afternoon charter. 2. Hats, sunglasses, and lots of sun screen (or long sleeves) are a must. 3. While a cooler of ice-cold beer is good, ice-cold water is better. 4. Have a second cooler in your vehicle to take home your catch.

Our Captain and 1st Mate were great. But the actual fishing time spent "on fish" was disappointing. After about 2 hours in good water and fish, we left them and took a long slow troll back. Even though lines were in the water, no fish. This was totally obvious and i have experienced this before. Just disappointing for what we pay.

A little choppy but if you have a good captain, you’ll find the right trolling area.

Well worth the price for a private charter where you can bring your own food and drinks!!

Parking there was ok. Not clear how the procedure to pay for having the fish cleaned after the trip is to be done.

Try the near shore fishing and use a local boat they know their area and will make it a much better time.

Head on out to Oregon Inlet and give Captain Duke a call. You will be glad that you did.
