Jill Louise Headboat – 50' Evans

The Jill Louise with Captain Dave can hold up to 30 people. The boat can hold large private or public groups. The $90 per person price is for a public trip. Jill Louise isn’t your average Headboat; she’s agile and able to get you into the skinny waters where other headboats can’t get to. Please inquire about our private trip prices. Wanchese has a fish with your name on it, so let Outer Banks Charter Fishing Adventures help you catch it! Having logged many hours on these tides, Captain Keith can tell you all about them.

Species like Flounder, Whiting, Bluefish, Mackerel, Black Seabass, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, Pompano, Redfish, Gray Triggerfish, Weakfish, and more inhabit these waters, depending on the time of year. Depending on the species you’re after, you may find yourself spinning, trolling, drifting, bottom fishing, or maybe something more specialized in this area.

Looking to get the whole family outdoors? Kids are absolutely welcome! Children must wear life vests, so find out if the appropriate size is available on board.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 50’ Evans headboat with a capacity for 30 passengers. It comes with outriggers and everything else you need for a productive day on the water, including an ice-cold air-conditioned cabin! There’s a toilet on board for your convenience. What’s more, this vessel is wheelchair accessible. You’ll find rods, reels, and tackle waiting for you aboard.

A First Mate will be there to make sure everything is running smoothly. It’s customary to tip the Mate 20% to show your appreciation.

The charter boat covers your fishing license, so you can drive right over and come aboard without any hassle! If you don’t know what to expect, ask the captain. It’s recommended to bring sunblock (non-spray), sunglasses, and bottled water. If you’d like to bring other drinks, just ask. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, so long as you avoid glass bottles.
