This is the sportfishing adventure the Outer Banks has become famous for. Custom designed and rigged sportfishing yachts running 30 to 40 miles offshore and trolling several lines and teasers for the aggressive pelagic species living in and around the Gulf Stream.

Anglers sit back and watch the mate do his magic setting out the lines while they get to haul in the fish that dreams are made of. Offshore species might include yellowfin tuna, blackfin tuna, wahoo, mahi, mako sharks, sailfish, white marlin and our apex predatory species blue marlin.

A deep sea offshore fishing trip is the ultimate sport fishing excursion.

Makeup Charters

Over the past few years as charter fishing gets more expensive the popularity of makeup charters has increased tremendously. These trips are called many things along the East Coast including makeup, group sharing, walk on and open boat charters.

We are constantly putting individual anglers together with other groups (usually a total of six anglers) so that they can share expenses and enjoy the offshore charter fishing experience.

Unlike other services where you are put on a waiting list to find a full group, we make every effort within our means to find the additional anglers you require for your trip.

Let us know you are looking for a trip and we will get you on your next charter.
