Little Shell Charters is based out of Wanchese, North Carolina, and offers inshore and offshore trips on the waters around the Outer Banks. They strive to make sure that all of their charters have the best time possible on the water. Little Shell Charter is not only a team of professional anglers, but are also family-friendly. You could even bring your pets on board!

You will spend the day aboard their 42’ Provincial boat, which comes powered by a 580 HP Caterpillar engine. It is equipped with all the latest state-of-the-art electronics and fish finding equipment to save your time when locating fish. The deck is very spacious and offers partial cover if you need a break from the elements, and is well suited for up to six anglers. The vessel is equipped with outriggers, downriggers, livewell, and has all the necessary safety and first aid equipment. The cabin is air-conditioned and features a TV, as well as a full head (toilet) for your comfort when spending a day on the water.

Little Shell Charters make catching fish their business! The crew specialize in light and heavy tackle, bottom fishing, trolling, drift fishing, and will assist you to target species such as Tuna, Shark, Redfish, Cobia, Amberjack, Bluefish and many more.

All you need to do is to decide which species you want to take off your bucket list and the crew will customize your trip to meet your specific needs. Stay within 6 miles or head further out and check the bite as far as 35 miles offshore.

Trips come with rods, reels and terminal tackle, as well as lures, live bait, and fishing licenses. You can feel free to bring your own food and drinks.

Brandan Brickhouse is the first mate on Little Shell Charters, who is a real threat to any fish. Fishing has always been his lifelong passion. Brandan can be found on the waters almost every day of the year. If he is not taking his friends and clients out, he goes fishing for himself. Brandan prefers catching whatever patrols the waters, so choosing one favorite species is an impossible task!
