Fishy Bizness OBX

U.S. 64 Bypass
Manteo NC, United States

Join Captain Frank Riddick aboard the ‘Fishy Bizness’ and enjoy a fun filled fishing adventure around the outer banks of North Carolina. Stalk Speckled Trout and Red Drum in the flats or target Cobia in the Atlantic Ocean and Oregon Inlet, throwing top water lures, jigging, or fishing with live bait to pull up the fish of a lifetime.

You will be fishing aboard a 23 ft May-Craft center console that was built locally, with North Carolina’s open inshore waters and inlets in mind. The boat was totally refurbished in 2015, when it was given a custom sight fishing tower fitted with controls to allow the captain to spot fish far away from the boat. A new 225 HP Evinrude outboard motor and new Garmin sounder with a side scan sonar were also added, making the boat hard to match as a nearshore fishing machine. A private toilet on board completes the package and is particularly appreciated by female anglers.

Your trip will take place anywhere within eight miles of the coastline, where you could target a range of species such as King Mackerel, Cobia, Tarpon, Red Drum, Amberjack, Striped Bass, Sharks and more. All equipment and licenses are included in the price of the trip, so all you have to think about is enjoying the trip!

This was a great trip! Captain Frank was very accommodating and knowledgeable. The boat got the job done and was an enjoyable ride. Definitely would recommend this charter to anyone from experienced anglers to beginners. I will for sure be making trips with Fishy Bizness again.

NC fishing has been tough the past few years. The fish were hard to find but the captain would not quit. We tried several spots until we found fish.
