Frequently Asked Questions about Fishing Charters in Manteo

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 Redfish, Cobia, and Spanish Mackerel. Top fishing techniques include Light Tackle, Trolling, and Bottom Fishing. Inshore fishing, nearshore 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.

Another awesome trip with Capt. Terry. Put us on the fish right away and kept us on them throughout the afternoon. He is always helpful and makes it a fun trip. He is the go to guy for anyone wanting a great fishing trip. We always look forward to our time with Capt. Terry as it is one of the highlights of our week at OBX.

We immediately felt right at home with Hunter! He made the experience unforgettable for a group of old friends out on the water. We caught a bunch of fish in a plethora of locations, my favorite being dropped off at the old bridge piling! He was exceptionally knowledgeable and it was fairly obvious that he is a born and raised local with a passion and drive for what he does. I would not only recommend Hunter but am looking forward to booking another trip with him on a future visit!

Captain Terry was fantastic. Despite less than ideal conditions Terry kept at it and tried his hardest to put us on the fish. Even though we only caught small the family had a great trip. Terry is very knowledgeable and easy to get along with. Only reason for four out of five stars was not catching any keepers. Terry is definitely a great captain.

Nice trip with knowledgeable Captain. Convenient timing for afternoon/evening of fishing that not all charters offer. Just make sure to ask for specific instructions as to how to find the dock as the GPS address can be confusing.
