Enjoy a fun-filled fishing adventure around the Outer Banks of North Carolina! Captain Frank Riddick has been guiding since 1996, and he loves taking people out to his favorite spots and helping them catch some big fish.
You’ll be fishing aboard a 23’ May-Craft center console that was built locally, with North Carolina’s open inshore waters and inlets in mind. The boat was refurbished in 2015, and now it has 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. You’ll find rods, reels, and tackle already waiting for you on board, as well as a range of artificial lures.
Stalk Speckled Trout and Red Drum in the flats or target Cobia in the Atlantic Ocean and Oregon Inlet. You’ll be throwing topwater lures, jigging, or fishing with live bait to pull up the fish of a lifetime.
You will always be fishing within sight of the beach, where you could target a range of species such as King Mackerel, Cobia, Red Drum, Speckled Trout, Bluefish, Flounder, Striped Bass, 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!
Get out on the beautiful waters of the Outer Banks and let your personal guide Capt Frank ￼show you a great time fishing!
