Under Pressure Charters

Next time you’re in Hatteras, NC, make sure to take a fishing trip with Under Pressure Charters. Operated by captain JT, who has almost 30 years of experience, this charter offers amazing fishing trips year round. Explore any type of fishing grounds and catch the fish of your dreams. You can stay inshore if you’re bringing your kids or head out offshore if you’re here to break your record. 

Enjoy a fun day on a 45’ Glass Marine boat with a large deck space to fish on, clean bathroom, and a spacious air conditioned cabin. There’s plenty of room for each angler and the capacity is limited to 6 guests. This boat doesn’t offer just comfort, and she’s also a true fishing machine. You’ll find new Raymarine navigational electronics, an 800 HP Caterpillar engine, a flybridge, and outriggers.

With miles and miles of sea that this charter covers, comes a variety of fish species you can catch. Go after Kingfish, Red Snapper, Spanish Mackerel, and Cobia, or dare to battle big game species, such as Tuna, Sailfish, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi.

The crew will share the catch with you but cleaning service is not included in the price. Your fishing license and equipment are covered, so you only need to pack food and drinks. Kids are welcome to join, and it’s recommended to take a short trip in that case.

Under Pressure Charters hopes you’ll join them next time you feel it’s time for an adventure.

I've been fishing all my life. I caught my first big fish off the Rodanthe pier in 1970. Got my first boat in 1979 and my Capt Lic. in 1991. Got trained to scuba dive and became what others call a world-class diver to depths of 400ft or more to wrecks. So I kinda have inside knowledge on the fish and know what's down there.
