Ocracoke Fishing charters are perfect for a wide variety of trips. If you’re looking for some nearshore action in the Pamlico Sound, chasing after the Gulf Stream pelagics, or trying to test your skills at the deep sea wrecks, Ocracoke is the destination for you!

With the variety of experiences on offer here, it’s no surprise that the list of species you’ll be able to target doesn’t leave much to be desired. This is especially true on full day Gulf Stream trips, where each bite could be your catch of a lifetime! Mahi Mahi, Kingfish, Tuna, and Wahoo are all popular targets, however, Billfish is certainly the top prize!

If you’d like to stay closer to shore, the Sound holds numerous rich nearshore spots and is home to Spanish Mackerel, Red Drum, Bluefish, and Cobia. For anglers looking for wreck fishing, the area’s underwater structures will give you ample opportunity to catch a variety of tasty bottom fish.

The fishing industry has always been a vital part of the Island’s identity. This means that you certainly won’t have to look hard to find a vessel and a captain for your adventure. Ocracoke Harbor is dotted with marinas, restaurants, and attractions placing everything you could need just a quick stroll away.

Rules & Regulations

If you’re going fishing on a charter trip, the captain will cover licenses for all guests. However, do keep in mind that if you’re planning on fishing on your own, a fishing license will be necessary. This includes fishing from the shore as well as fishing from a boat.

January

With the new year, it’s time for the toughest anglers to get out to the continental shelf. Bluefin Tuna season is in full swing and it’s going to test your skills to the max. For those that are up to the challenge, the rewards are great!

February

While the Tuna action’s not letting up offshore, anglers looking for a more relaxed experience can look forward to the inshore bite heating up.

March

As the Bluefin Tuna migrate onwards, Yellowfin come to town. These hard-fighting fish may not be quite the prize that the Bluefins are but their larger population makes them a great species to target.

April

The water’s heating up and the fish are plentiful! From Redfish, Trout, Bluefish, and Black Drum inshore, to offshore pelagic newcomers such as Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and huge Yellowfin.

May

May is the absolute peak month for Yellowfin Tuna. However, Billfish are beginning to roll in, especially during the second half of the month. This may warrant a trip to the continental shelf offshore!

June

June is the month when Blue Marlin start showing up offshore and it goes without mention that this is the top prize for all anglers going to the bluewater. Other Billfish and pelagics are also present.

July

This is the peak of Blue Marlin season and anglers from all over the world come to the area to test their skills. However, other prized targets are also more than viable and the action’s everywhere.

August

The water temperature is still high and the Billfish bite is still strong. They’re not the only prize since Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Tuna are all still very much present in these waters.

September

September is another great month for Billfish, however, White Marlin becomes the primary target for offshore anglers. The year-round inshore fishery is also a popular choice in the fall months.

October

The main draw in October is definitely the giant King Mackerel. Anglers looking to catch this ravenous sea predator will definitely be able to see solid action this month.

November

Bluefin Tuna are starting to show up and the Kingfish action is still as good ever. You’ll have no trouble catching the daily limit targeting these. Either way, the action is hot!

December

Bluefin Tuna season is officially here and if landing one of these deep sea beasts is your idea of a perfect Christmas gift, get on a full day charter and have it take you to the continental edge.

During this time of year the fish are moving. Catch is harder to predict. Expect lots of cruising attempting to find the fish. Weather is unpredictable so be flexible. We did a 3/4 day and would have probably been better served with a full day.

The water is still a bit cold in late March so try to consider water temps. The up side is there are far fewer people but two weeks late to mid April and your catch will likely be even better.

We had a wonderful day trolling the gulf stream with Captain Steve and mate Josh. With no other boats landing any fish, somehow Captain Steve put us on the fish. To have been on a boat that was built from scratch by Captain Steve, we are not sure if he should be doing charters or building boats. It was truly a work of art. But we are certai ly happy he is doing charters. 100% recommend fishing with these guys that go above and beyond to make your day memorable.

Excellent captain and first mate. He was able to find us fish and we made out very well. They allowed us to be very involved rather than doing all the fishing for us, this was a ton of fun. When we got back to the dock they even fileted the fish for us.

The captain and first mate were very attentive with a high degree of professionalism. The trip was very memorable for two main reasons.The first reason was that we caught a phenominal varity of fish and the second and most important reason was the extraordinary knowledge that the capton displayed. I can't say enough about our enjoyable fishing adventure with the most sincerely friendly and interesting charter boat captain! We will definitely book next year! Dan

This was a wonderful trip, me, my husband daughter and her boyfriend went out on one of the most beautiful days on our trip. We caught Spanish mackerel the whole time and had a blast! This is something we highly recommended to anyone coming to this island. The captain and his mate are absolutely wonderful and taught us well! Again the best day so far on our trip.

Beautiful day on the water. Steve and Josh know what they are doing and by the end of the day, we had a box full of mahi, wahoo, and triggers to take home with us. Let these guys take you fishing. You won't be disappointed.

It was rough we tried tirelessly to get the swords 6hrs, but with how conditions were it was no hope, we switched it up and finished the day strong with a few Wahoo bites and a bucket of Mahi. One way or another this crew will get you on fish.

We had great time would have given all five stars but it was really choppy and one got really sick. Not the captains fault. Weather was the issue, we still caught the 62 pound Amberjack and three others that where 64 pounds total. Hats off to the crew! Thanks for the great fishing!

Captain Steve and first mate Josh were a great first experience for our family! Concerned for a good experience, with safety in mind as the weather proved to be a factor for our half day trip. Nonetheless, fish were hooked and wonderful memories made! We will definitely book again with Captain Steve and DreamGirl Sportfishing!

We had a great time going out with Captain Mike and Dream Girl. While our luck with the Spanish Mackerel and trout didn’t go our way, we had bite after bite on the Amberjack and had a ton of fun reeling in one after another. Very knowledgeable about exactly where to go. Highly recommend for a great day out on the water.

Great time out in the Gulf Stream with Capt. Steve. Landed a few tuna, a wahoo, a mahi and some gray triggers. The Capt. is very accommodating, will tell you what's biting and what's reasonable but also get you on different stuff if the bite is slow, knows the water, and most importantly he loves fishing. Can't recommend him and First Mate Josh highly enough. Will definitely be back!

An absolutely wonderful experience. This was our first time deep sea fishing and Captain Steve surpassed our expectations. We had three children with us age 13, 8, and 6 and he ensured we catered to their needs and navigated the experience accordingly. Caught plenty of fish and had a great time doing it!! His mate also ensured we had an A+ experience. Will be back for sure!!!
