Team Dempsey Guide Service

Join Team Dempsey Guide Service on an exclusive adventure around Hatteras Island! Captain Jake Dempsey is a former commercial fisherman and has won several local tournaments over the past years. He’ll take you to some of the most prolific fishing grounds, from the Pamlico Sound to the Atlantic Ocean, and do everything he can to put you on fish!

You’ll be fishing from a versatile 24’ Carolina Skiff. The boat’s fishing platform provides you with the flexibility to drift the shallow flats but also trek through nearshore waters off of Cape Hatteras. She comes with state-of-the-art Garmin electronics, a flybridge, jack plate, Power-Pole, shade top, and plenty of dry storage space. You and 3 other guests will be able to fish comfortably at the same time and kids 5 and older are welcome aboard.

You’ll have the opportunity to fish the flats for Bull Reds or go all the way out to the famous Diamond Shoals to target Cobia. Other target species include Trout, Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, Weakfish, and many more! You’ll be provided with top-of-the-line rods and reels made by Penn, as well as live bait and lures, along with a fishing license for the day.

Capt. Jake also provides clamming trips, a fun local tradition and activity for families to enjoy together. You’ll spend 2.5 hours looking for delicious Clams so that you can take them home for a savory meal. This is something that the kids really enjoy and is one of the most relaxing yet rewarding experiences!

Everything you need is already covered so that you can come straight to the dock ready to fish. Whether you’re an avid angler, a beginner, or someone looking to book a fun clamming trip with the family, Capt. Jake will tailor your trip just the way you want!

Just arrive 15 minutes early, bring a cooler with snacks and drinks, sunscreen, a hat, and a towel, and imagine yourself reeling in a huge fish! Book your next trip with Team Dempsey Guide Service and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime!
