Come aboard OBX Fishing Outfitters and make the most of the Outer Banks’ rich inshore sounds. These Sound waters are a hotbed of exciting and delicious fish and crustaceans. Fill the boat with fresh Shrimp and Crab in what promises to be an authentic local fishing experience!

Captain Jamie Parker is a child of the ocean. Born and raised in these parts, he’s spend more time on the water than on land. He’s a commercial fisherman during winter, and runs this charter during the summer season. He hopes to share his lifetime of fishing knowledge with you, helping you have a successful day on the water and making sure the kids rake in plenty of delicious treats.

His 34’ custom-made Deadrise downeast boat is fitted for all intents and purposes. Up to 6 guests are welcome aboard the spacious deck to try their hand at filling the boat. You’ll have the chance try out trawling for Shrimp and pulling the Crab pots too. Bring your own drinks and snacks aboard and settle in for a thrilling day out.

There’s fun for the whole family aboard with Capt. Jamie. Bring the kids along and get them engaging in a healthy and educational activity.

At the end of the day, once you get back on land, you can visit a seafood market nearby that can steam your Crabs! There’s nothing left for you to do but come aboard and settle in for a real North Carolinian water adventure. Let OBX Fishing Outfitters show you why the Outer Banks are world-renowned for fishing!

A fifth-generation fisherman, Captain Jamie has spent his whole life on the water. Fishing since he was a small child, he moved into the commercial fishing industry and continues to do this out of season. He's been running charters since 2000, and still loves getting out on the water. What was a natural progression for him has now become more than a passion. He loves helping people catch their first fish and head home with fresh, local, delicious seafood.
