OBX Inshore Fishing – Stumpy Point and Flying Fish Charters OBX – Manteo received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Manteo.

The most popular fish species you can target are Redfish, Spanish Mackerel, and Speckled Trout. Top fishing techniques include Light Tackle, Bottom Fishing, and Spinning. Inshore fishing, nearshore fishing, and wreck fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

You’ve got plenty of options aboard Manteo fishing charters. Local captains put generations of knowledge to work on every trip to make sure you have a good time. Explore the Roanoke and Croatan Sounds, hit the inlet, or head into the ocean – you’re never far from something big and tasty.

 
Inshore charters are a perfect introduction to Manteo’s angling action. Stay “sound side” to reel in tasty treats like Red Drum, Flounder, and Trout. Half day trips offer plenty of action, and experienced anglers can find huge big Bull Reds on longer charters. Most fish are around spring through fall.
 
Head through Oregon Inlet, and bigger fish like Cobia and King Mackerel join the fun. These guys put up a real fight, and taste great to boot. Kingfishing is best in fall, while late spring is best for Cobia. Don’t worry, you can find big Bluefish whenever you visit!
 
The keen sportfishers among you already know what’s coming next: the Gulf Stream. The Outer Banks are a bluewater warzone, where Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and Marlin put skills to the test on all-day adventures. Summer is the best time for deep sea fishing in Manteo, although you can also find Bluefin Tuna here in winter.
 
Most Manteo fishing charters depart from Pirate’s Cove Marina off Route 64. This is also the starting place for the famous Pirate’s Cove Billfish Tournament, which draws competitive anglers from around the country each August. Think you’ve got what it takes to be the pirate king?

Rules & Regulations

Fishing licenses are provided as standard on fishing charters in North Carolina. Important species like Flounder, Black Seabass, and Cobia have strict closed seasons which may change annually. Always check with your captain for current seasons and bag limits.

January
Reel in the new year with some incredible inshore fishing. Hit the sounds for some delicious Redfish and Striped Bass, along with some tough-fighting Bluefish.
February
Warm up with a thrilling fishing adventure as you mix up your fishing techniques. Head offshore to catch the bite of Bluefin Tuna, or stay inshore and go after Bluefish, Stripers, and Seabass.
March
March is the height of Bluefin Tuna season. Head out to the continental shelf and troll, jig, or pop your way to glory against one of the toughest and tastiest fish in the sea!
April
There’s no turning back. The high season is almost here, and you’ll get to warm up for it with a trip offshore to battle it out with Tuna and the first of the Wahoo, Cobia, and Mahi Mahi.
May

Mahi Mahi can be found in abundance offshore, while Bull Red Drum dominate the sounds. Bottom fish like Grouper and Tilefish are open for harvest, as are Cobia closer to shore. Better clear out the freezer!

June
Hot weather means hot fishing. You’ll want to speed off with the wind in your hair to take on monstrous White and Blue Marlin that are passing by in the Gulf Stream.
July
The heart of the summer is when you get the chance to tick some fish off your bucket list. Monster Marlin and stunning Sailfish will push you to your limit as you try to land the catch of your dreams.
August
With the Pirate’s Cove Billfish Tournament in the middle of the month, you know that August is a productive time to get on the water. Battle it out with monster pelagics and make some lifelong memories.
September
Huge "Smoker" Kingfish tear around the nearshore structure, while Bull Red Drum patrol the sounds. This is your last chance to battle Billfish before they head south, so save some time for offshore fishing.
October
Inshore season back in full swing. Explore the Roanoke and Croatan Sounds in search of Redfish, Trout, Striped Bass, and Bluefish. Otherwise, take on 30 lb "Smoker Kings" in the ocean.
November

It’s getting colder, but the fishing remains red hot. Explore the shallow waters near the shoreline of Manteo and go after some nationwide favorite game and table fish, from Redfish to Flounder.

December
You don’t want to look back on the year and regret not going fishing. There’s still plenty of riches to explore on the inshore waters, so come and fill the boat before it’s too late.

The best time to fish Manteo is April May and June. You might need to dodge high winds and hurricanes after July through November. Good news though, Manteo has inshore opportunities in the sound for anglers who love to bring home tasty catches. Speckled Trout and Red Drum are GREAT eating fish. So are sheepshead and Striped Bass.

Remember it's called fishing and not catching, so some days you win, some days you don't. But if you're looking for a great experience go offshore fishing.

Fishing inshore can be tricky this time of year. Make sure you check reports and look at reviews. Find a guide who's experienced and knows how to catch a variety of fish.

Research the charter captains and their boats. Keep an eye on their catches and trip summaries and review. Talk to the captains- be honest, if u don’t fish much, tell them that- explain your expectations. The captains will let you know what they can deliver.

We booked this charter to have some fishing fun. Unfortunately, the water was way too choppy and rough to catch anything. It was cold and rainy. The trip should have been cancelled and rescheduled. But since we paid and could not get a refund, we went. Of course no fish but we did have great views of the sounds and channels. The staff was very knowledgeable and great. Just wish the weather would have cooperated with us or we could have rescheduled.

Captain Dave was amazing. There were 3 of us and Dave and we caught some bait fish and moved on to catch our limit of Red Drum, we also caught 2 stingrays which we threw back and 2 Red drum that we threw back due to having our limits and we a sea Robin. It was an all around amazing Day. We would recommend Dave to anyone.

Captain Froggy's charter was a great experience! We enjoyed the ride, the scenery, the Captain's company and the fishing time. Captain Froggy worked hard to find us a good fishing location, coordinating with other captains to locate good areas. He was fantastic with our 12 year old who really liked him and wants to repeat the experience at the first opportunity. Awesome charter!

Captain Ryan was great! Super friendly, knowledgeable and experienced. His boat was the cleanest I've had on a charter and is state-of-the-art! The whole family had fun and we caught more than enough fish to feed 10 for dinner. We also had lots of dolphin sightings which was a plus. We highly recommend booking with X-Spearmint! Thank you Captain Ryan!

My wife and I had a fantastic time. The Captain made the experience highly enjoyable and entertained us with his knowledge and stories. He was always ready to rebait and take the fish off the hooks. He watched the sonar and kept us on the fish. We caught red drum, sea bass, croaker, pig and toad fish to name some. We will absolutely book with him again.

We can't begin to explain what an amazing day we had fishing with Captain Terry. It was like fishing with a good friend and we had just met him. We laughed so much and caught a ton of fish, most we could keep. Captain Terry took care of all our needs and found great spots for fishing. Just can't say enough good things about him and the entire experience. If you want to have a fun, relaxing, and great time book a fishing trip with Captain Terry!!!
