Backin’ Up Sportfishing Charters

Pirates Cove Marina
Manteo NC, United States

Come aboard the Backin’ Up, the largest of the inshore boat fleet at Pirate’s Cove Marina in Manteo, North Carolina. Backin’ Up Sportfishing Charters provides enjoyable, family friendly nearshore sportfishing charters in the world famous Outer Banks of North Carolina.

A 46 ft Sheldon Midgett boat that originates from 1975, the Backin’ Up was completely rebuilt by Captain Ritchie himself in 2014. This impressive boat was designed with sportfishing charters in mind, and she comes with a comfortable and fully air-conditioned salon, a bathroom, the very latest in electronics, and a spacious cockpit with a large Marlin chair and two smaller fighting chairs. There plenty of room for up to six people to catch fish, and there is no need to sacrifice your comfort for a professional fishing experience as the luxurious interior will cater to your every need.

Custom fishing tackle is provided onboard the boat so you can get the most out of your day fishing the inshore and nearshore waters close to the Outer Banks. Backin’ Up Sportfishing Charters specializes in nearshore fishing, which is a fishing style that allows everyone from the most seasoned of fishermen to young families to have a productive and relaxing fishing trip. On half and three quarter day trips you will almost always be in sight of land, and you will be able to have an adventurous fishing trip while targeting species that are usually easier to handle when caught than those that live further offshore.

Backin’ Up Sportfishing Charters will provide everything you need for your trip, but they recommend that you bring plenty of snacks with you (the sea breeze gives you an appetite!) as well as suitable clothing for the weather, polarized sunglasses for a better view, and soft soled shoes. Most importantly, come with a bucket of smiles and an ice box to bring your catch home with you!

Highly recommend this boat and crew. Professional and nice. Fish weren’t biting too good, but other boats out had the same luck as we.

We had an amazing three-quarter day trip out on Backin’ Up! We wrestled a variety of large sharks and took home two dozen Mackerel and Bluefish! We’re still eating like kings! Many thanks to the Captain and First Mate for a great “Guys-Day-Out”!
