According to customer reviews, OBX Inshore Fishing – Stumpy Point, Chasin' Tyde Charters, and Salty Charters are some of the most popular fishing charters in Manteo, North Carolina. Full list of top fishing charters in Manteo.

OBX Inshore Fishing – Stumpy Point, Chasin' Tyde Charters, and Salty Charters all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Manteo.

The most popular fish species you can target are Cobia, Redfish, and Dolphin (Mahi Mahi). Top fishing techniques include light tackle, trolling, and spinning. Nearshore fishing, inshore fishing, and offshore 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.

This was our first time fishing in Manteo, we caught a quantity of small fish that will be perfect for dinner, which was our goal. We also took and hour to go for another type after we had the quantity that we were looking for. It was a great experience, a little different than we expected, but a good time was had by all. We know it is early in the season so we did anticipate to have less options as far as what was biting.

Sun block. Plenty of food and drinks. A good attitude. Also understand that sometimes the conditions are not good for the fish you are after, and listen/consider the Captain's recommendations. Sometimes it works out better.

Go out early and if you have 6 people fishing then ask for 6 poles to be set up. We had 6 people fishing with 4 poles. Not ideal.

What a great experience, fantastic boat and crew, would definitely book again. Captain Lee and his Mate Allen were awesome! Action was spotty in the AM but they kept at it all day and in the last 2 hours we hit them pretty good. A lot crews would have given up. Great job guys! Book it you won’t be disappointed!

Went hunting for speckled trout. I say “hunting” because the fish were largely uncooperative. But not the Captain’s fault! He worked hard and tried to encourage a bite by sheer force of will, but we only wound up catching two, but both were nice fish. And Capt Froggy was a great guy, very entertaining! An original character of the OBX!

My son and daughter-in-law honeymooned at OBX, contacted for and afternoon of fishing. Was the highlight of the honeymoon, captan was super friendly, they said the center trip was full of funny stories and laughs. Neither do. Or daughter-in-law are “ real” fishermen, but he did an awesome job with them.

This was the perfect experience. The kids got to enjoy crab hunting while the adults did some shore fishing. Captain Clay and First Mate Nick were fabulous! They were both funny and full of knowledge, making the trip a learning experience without the kids even realizing it. My kids said they won't go on another charter in the OBX, unless it's Captain Clay's!

Booked with Virginia Dare to celebrate my Dad's 74th birthday. First time with this type of fishing and Captain Marcus did a great job getting us on fish. Each guy (6 of us) got to catch at least 1 fish. We even ran into some big boys and had alot of fun. Will definitely be booking with this crew again. My dad loves the T-shirt. Thx guys for making it special. Appreciate it.
