I Sea Fish

Experience the Outer Banks as never before on the I Sea Fish. We invite you to join us on a fishing tour of the some of the greatest inshore and nearshore fishing the east coast has to offer. Led by an experienced and knowledgeable Captain and equipped with a luxurious hybrid bay boat, this is a fishing trip you don’t want to pass on.

The “I Sea Fish” is a 26 foot Shearwater hybrid bay boat with dual capabilities for both ocean and inshore fishing. Equipped with a trolling motor and custom cobia tower built by the Captain, the I Sea Fish is structurally sound, well constructed, and highly sought after. The boat has a flared hull that creates a stable, fast, and comfortable ride, and the boat’s versatility allows for fishing in a variety
of settings.

Depending on the trip option chosen, you could be sight fishing Cobia on a custom built tower, wrestling in a hard-fighting Amberjack, or trolling for Dolphin and Mackerel using custom built rods and lures crafted by the Captain himself to ensure a one of kind angling experience. Any trip you choose you are sure to create memories with a hands-on experience that is second to none.

A variety of types of rods, reels, and line will be provided to make your experience one to remember, and both bait and lures are included in the trip price. Captain Patrick Heretick will also clean and prepare your catch for you on return to the dock.
