Amazing fishing action and endless trip requests have brought something new to Duck Hunter charter - a new boat! From now on, you can join Captain Hunter and his crew on a new vessel that’s available year round. With more space, more anglers can join on any adventure, while more versatile trips offer makes it easy to find the trip that’s perfect for you.

His new fishing machine is a 28’ custom Valentino boat that accommodates up to 6 guests. She’s powered by a 300 HP Evinrude engine and features the latest navigational electronics. The boat is also equipped with a live bait tank, a cooler, a toilet, and a flybridge, so you can spot the fish from the distance.

Explore the bountiful waters of Outer Banks and target all kinds of fish that call these waters home. Some of the species you’re most likely to encounter are Black Drum, Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Bluefish, and many more. Let the captain know if you want him to prepare live bait in advance or fish for it at the beginning of the trip. This can be great fun for beginners, especially for kids.

All fishing equipment and licenses are included in the price. You only need to pack your food, drinks, and sun protection. Don’t forget your camera and snap some memorable photos!

Duck Hunter welcomes anglers of all skill levels. Whether you want to spend the whole day with them or just wet a hook for a short time, they have the trip for you. Pick one and choose the date!

I have been fishing the Outer Banks since I was a small child. Fishing and hunting is something I have always been passionate about, and I love sharing my passion with my customers and creating memories together. I specialize in inshore fishing, focusing on Flounder, Speckled Trout and Redfish, but if my customers prefer clamming or sightseeing, or having a picnic on an island, I can tailor the trip just for you.
