South Bound OBX Outfitters

If you’re ready to start fishing in the Outer Banks, we’ve got you covered with South Bound OBX Outfitters. Having logged many hours on these tides, Captain Christopher knows them forwards and back.

There’s no guarantee when you’re fishing, but just some of the species you can catch around here include Speckled Trout, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, Flounder, Weakfish, Largemouth Bass, White Perch, Yellow Perch, Bull Shark, Sheepshead, Striped Bass, Bluefish, and more if conditions are right. Depending on the species you’re after, you may find yourself spinning, popping, trolling, drifting, jigging, bottom fishing, or maybe something more specialized in this area.

Capt. Christopher is happy to have kids aboard, so go ahead and bring the whole family along! If you don’t have a child-sized life vest of your own, be sure to ask if there’s one on board. Also, remember to bring snacks so that nobody gets grumpy on an empty belly!

Your trip begins aboard a 20’ KenCraft center console that can carry up to 4 passengers. It has all the essentials no fishing machine can run without. You’ll find rods, reels, and tackle waiting for you, as well as lures. Live bait is included, but you should ask the captain whether you’ll be catching it yourself.

The charter boat covers your fishing license, just show up ready for some fishing! Some fish have special regulations, including when you can keep them. Your captain will help you follow regulations while you fish.

You can’t go wrong when you bring sunscreen (non-spray), and sunglasses. There will be some bottled water on offer, but let the captain know if you wish to bring your own. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, but try to avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

Give yourself something to look forward to and book a trip with South Bound OBX Outfitters!
