I Sea Fish

Experience the Outer Banks as never before on I Sea Fish charters. Captain Patrick Heretick invites you to join him and explore some of the greatest inshore and nearshore fishing the East Coast has to offer. This is an angling adventure you don’t want to pass on!

As well as an experienced and knowledgeable captain, you’ll also benefit from traveling aboard a luxurious hybrid bay boat. The “I Sea Fish” is a 26’ Shearwater hybrid bay boat, capable of cruising both ocean and inshore waters. She can accommodate up to 4 guests, so why not bring along your closest angling buddies?

Equipped with a trolling motor and custom tower built by the captain, the I Sea Fish is structurally sound, well-constructed, and the perfect place to begin your adventure. She has a flared hull that creates a stable, fast, and comfortable ride, and the boat’s versatility allows for fishing in a variety of settings.

Capt. Patrick offers a whole host of angling adventures, so what your trip looks like depends on your personal preferences. You could be sight fishing for Cobia on the custom-built tower, testing your skills against hard-fighting Amberjack, or trolling for Mahi Mahi and Mackerel using custom-built rods and lures crafted by the captain himself.

A variety of types of rods, reels, and tackle will be provided, and both bait and lures are included every trip. Capt. Patrick will make sure you’re equipped with a fishing license, and will also clean and prepare your catch for you when you return to the dock. All that’s left is to come aboard and cast off on an unforgettable adventure with I Sea Fish charters!
