Hatteras NC, United States

Book your next trip with Tradition Fishing and come discover endless possibilities in Hatteras, North Carolina! These waters have something for everyone, from the dedicated angler to the adventurous family. Trips are run by Captain Cameron Whitaker, a Hatteras Island native who has been fishing these waters for most of his life. His goal is to give everyone on board the experience of a lifetime!

Step aboard a 24’ Carolina Skiff originally built in 2002 and restored in 2016. Powered by a 140 HP Suzuki engine, this craft has a maximum cruising speed of 22 knots. She comes equipped with a flybridge and advanced fishing technology, including Garmin electronics and a live bait well. There is room on board for up to four passengers and children of all ages are welcome.

You will find no shortage of opportunities while exploring the inshore and nearshore waters of Hatteras. A half day trip takes you around the inlet and into the backwaters of the Pamlico Sound, where you can catch Bluefish, Flounder, Cobia, slot Red Drum, and even trophy Red Drum on occasion.

A full day trip allows you to cast lines in many different areas, with a chance to reel in the same species (only more of them!) and perhaps even some which live farther out in the ocean. Even those who are not avid fishermen can enjoy these waters while clamming and sand dollaring.

Capt. Cameron provides fishing gear by Innovative Reel Technology and Meat Hog Fishing. Depending on the species, you might target your catch using any technique from trolling and drift fishing to popping. You can also target some species on fly, or by spearfishing and bow fishing. Anglers intent on using these specialized techniques should bring their own equipment.

Tradition Fishing provides a fishing license and spinning gear. Depending on the species and local regulations, you are welcome to keep your catch.

Come aboard today for an unforgettable experience!

About the Captain

Cameron Whitaker
Hatteras, North Carolina, United States
Member since September 2016
Captain Cameron Whitaker is a Hatteras Island native. He started fishing with his father at a young age, and got his first boat when he was just 10 years old! He learned the local waters by navigating through the Pamlico Sound. At 16, he began his career as a first mate aboard a local inshore head boat called Cap’n Clam. He also spent many days working aboard the offshore head boat Miss Hatteras. Fishing was only a summer job at the time, while Cameron started studying at East Carolina University. By the age of 20, he was a first mate for Captain Rick Caton aboard the Free Agent. In 2015, Capt. Cameron decided to chart his own course and purchased his first inshore charter boat. He says, "Since my dad is a charter fisherman, it seemed only natural that I follow suit!"

We had a great time sight fishing for big reds. It was a team effort with other captains to stay with the school. Captain Cameron loves what he is doing and it shows. Thanks, Floyd
