Flatland Charters

Flatland Charters operates out of the famous sportfishing town of Hatteras, NC. This area is known for its skilled guides and huge fish, and Captain Ross is determined to prove the rumors right! Spend your day battling inshore favorites like Redfish, Trout, and Flounder, with plenty of other species showing up over the course of the year.

You will be fishing aboard a 23’ Carolina Skiff loaded with everything you’ll need for the perfect day on the water. The boat is equipped with GPS and fishfinder to get your locked onto the biggest fish, and she has a livewell full of fresh live bait for when you find them.

With anything from Bluefish to Weakfish and Cobia to Clams on the menu depending on your trip, you’ll need a variety of equipment to match the huge range of species. That’s exactly what you get, with the option to spin, drift, troll, and jig your day away.

Clamming trips are great for families and kids. They focus on bagging as many of these tasty shellfish as possible while having a great time doing so.

All Flatland Charters trips come with tackle, bait, and fishing licenses included. All you need to bring is some food and drinks to keep you going. Captain Ross can show you where to get your fish filleted at the end of the trip too. So remember to bring a big cooler to haul it all home in!
