Fish Ocracoke Aboard The Laura Linn

Whether you’re chasing the bluewater thrill or want to fill your cooler with nearshore fish, Fish Ocracoke has the trip for you! Captain Robert Orr has spent his life fishing the coast of North Carolina and is more than happy to share his wealth of experience with you.

Join him for an exciting fishing adventure on board the “Laura Linn,” a 38’ offshore sportfishing vessel made by the Scarborough Boatworks. She was launched in 1982 and still runs like it’s her first day – a testament to the quality of her build.

The Laura Linn is a true bluewater predator, equipped to give you the edge in reeling in the best fish. Twin Cummins engines with 380 HP each will propel you to your fishery quickly and smoothly. The captain will deftly navigate the boat from the flybridge, and spot topwater fish from far away. Once you set the hook, set yourself in the onboard fighting chair and let the battle begin!

The fish you’ll target are diverse, offering something to every angler. Anglers looking to land their next trophy catch can go after Blue and White Marlin, as well as Sailfish. Delicious Blackfin Tuna and Wahoo can also be landed. Nearshore waters hide many Groupers, Snappers, and Mackerel that you can hook up.

Capt. Robert will take you up to 8 miles away from the coast on the 5-hour trips while you can expect to head up to 40 miles offshore on the full day trip.

Live bait is caught before the trip, so it’s all ready and spry when you get on board.

No matter your skill level, the crew will work hard to instruct and assist you in any way possible. Book a trip with Fish Ocracoke today and experience some of the finest fishing North Carolina has to offer!

I was raised on Topsail Island, NC and have spent my entire life fishing the coastal waters of NC. My first professional fishing experience came when I took a job mating on a sportfisher when I was 15 years old. When I turned 18, I received my captain's license and began running offshore trips on a 26' center console. Since then, I have spent time mating on and running various sportfishers throughout NC. This includes time successfully competing in the NC Governor's Cup Billfish tournaments, and running charters on my own boat, the "Laura Linn."
