Dunn Deal Sportfishing

Dunn Deal Sportfishing and Captain Shaun Dunn welcome you to the Gulf Stream waters of Hatteras, North Carolina. Pack your stuff and set sail for beautiful nearshore or offshore waters full of fish!

Your journey begins on “Dunn Deal”, a restored 42’ Ocean Yacht saltwater fishing boat. She runs on a twin 355 HP Cummins engine and can sit up to 6 anglers. She’s rigged with the latest top of the line navigation electronics and all the necessary Coast Guard prescribed safety equipment. The fishing equipment includes downriggers, outriggers, and a fighting chair. “Dunn Deal” has also got a toilet, multimedia system, and a built in ice-box. There is a 16,000 BTU A/C and heated cabin, microwave, 32" tv with DVD player, Keurig coffee maker, Tuna green stick, and 5KW Norther light generator. You’ll have the help of a first mate available all the time.

There’s a great variety of fish for you to catch in these productive waters, with Goliath Grouper, Maco Shark, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Seabass and Marlin being just some of the species you can target. The captain and you will be using custom tackle and will try your luck with bottom and deep sea fishing, trolling, jigging, as well as drift fishing. Kids are more than welcome to join the trip, so why not bring the whole family and have a wonderful time together in nature. You’re free to keep the fish you catch.

Captain Shaun will supply you with rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures, so you shouldn’t worry about equipment at all. He also has a very trained mate onboard to help you throughout the day while fishing that works for tips (20% is customary). He’s also got you covered for fishing licenses, which means you’ll just need to pack your favorite food and drinks before you start your journey. Keep in mind spray sunscreen is not allowed on board.

Book a trip at Dunn Deal Sportfishing and have a wonderful fishing experience on the waters of North Carolina.

    Seasonal trip Oct 15 - Feb 15
    $1,450
    This is a seasonal trip offered in the fall only. You will start the trip off by heading out the inlet and catching live bait along the beach and then head offshore to catch large tuna and king mackerel that can easily weigh 60+ lbs all on stand-up light tackle. The awesome thing about this type of fishing is you usually see the fish attacks the live bait on the surface skying out of the water with your bait and hook in its mouth. All of a sudden, the rod starts screaming and then the fight is on!
