According to customer reviews, Righteous Fishing Charters, Waymaker Charters, and Somerset Charters – Crab and Shrimp are some of the most popular fishing charters in Wanchese, North Carolina. Full list of top fishing charters in Wanchese.

Righteous Fishing Charters, Waymaker Charters, and Somerset Charters – Crab and Shrimp all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Wanchese.

The most popular fish species you can target are Bluefish, Cobia, and Redfish. Top fishing techniques include bottom fishing, light tackle, and trolling. Inshore fishing, nearshore fishing, and wreck fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Wanchese is the business end of Roanoke Island, and that business is catching fish. Located on Roanoke Island, just a short ride from Oregon Inlet and the Atlantic, it’s in a prime spot to get you casting. Wanchese fishing charters are run by experienced captains from generations-long fishing families, who’ll take you to the inshore sounds and beyond to the deep seas to get your fish on. 
 
There’s something for everyone in Wanchese. Inshore charters are great for families. Reel in tasty Panfish, Flounder, and Red Drum in the sheltered sounds and be back in time for lunch. Skilled anglers can stay out longer to take on big Bull Reds and more. Most species are best in spring and fall, but there’s plenty of action year-round.
 
Head out into the ocean and things really heat up. The wrecks offer up Seabass, Tilefish, Cobia, Mackerel, and Bluefish. But head offshore to the Gulf Stream, and Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and Marlin are around all summer long! Up for a real challenge? Brave the colder weather to take on Bluefins weighing over 500 pounds! This is one of the best Bluefin Tuna fisheries in the country, so spend upwards of eight hours on the water and go after that trophy!
 
If fighting huge fish isn’t tough enough, take on other anglers in a local tournament! The biggest event is the Pirate’s Cove Billfish Tournament in nearby Manteo, but there are lots of smaller ones, too. Wanchese fishing charters will even help you prepare for them! Just head down to one of the three marinas in town, hop aboard your charter boat, and get ready for an awesome day on the water.
 

Rules & Regulations

Wanchese fishing charters include licenses for everybody on board, so that's one less thing to worry about. However, many species such as Flounder, Cobia, and Seabass have strict closed seasons which may change annually. Your captain will have up-to-date info on every species, and will make sure you stick to the rules during your trip.

January
Inshore fishing reigns supreme during the winter, so head out to the sounds and bottom fish for some delicious Redfish and Striped Bass, just make sure to wrap up warm. 
February
While the Stripers and Flounder make their way out, the Tuna season is heating up. Hit the inshore waters for the last of the cold water season or head offshore to land a delicious Bluefin.
March
Spring really does bring with it new arrivals. The Bluefin Tuna season is in full swing and Yellowfin start to show up toward the end of the month. Inshore, Drum, Trout, and Bluefish will keep you busy.
April
There are no April showers to worry about in the Outer Banks. As the weather starts heating up, so does the fishing. Expect a range of exciting big game fish in the deeper waters offshore.
May

Expect to find plenty of Mahi Mahi and Yellowfin Tuna offshore, along Cobia closer to land. You might even spot the first few Billfish, signaling the start of big game season.

June
School’s out just in time for the season to hit its stride. White and Blue Marlin arrive to the party, giving you the chance to land a real prized monster fish. 
July
Stunning Sailfish is the latest addition to the Gulf Stream. Deep sea fishing is the name of the game, and expect to be mesmerized by these stunning creatures as you fight one to the boat.
August
There’s no sign of things cooling off, so get offshore throughout August and make the most of the summer. Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Marlin, and Sailfish will all have you in for the fight of your life.

 

September
Change is a-coming as the pelagics start to leave the Gulf Stream. But fear not, monstrous Kingfish are on their way and the inshore season is just around the corner.
October
Trout are well and truly back, as are Red Drum inshore. However, when the weather's fine, nothing beats the Tuna action offshore! Head out to the Gulf Stream and get your fill of these monsters!
November
While many may want to stay close to shore during November to try to fill the boat with Drum, Trout, and Bass, there's still plenty going on offshore, where the Tuna bite is in its prime!
December

If you manage to find some good weather in December, you'll want to make the most of the last chance of the year to go offshore and battle Tuna! Otherwise, it will all be about landing smaller fish inshore.

We were hoping to catch a bit more fish, but the weather was maybe a bit too perfect with no current whatsoever. Still able to bring in speckled trout, gray trout, flounder, red drum and had a couple of blues get away.

Big game fish are 40 miles out so plan an all day charter. Inshore fishing is fast and furious and fish are smaller. Fun nonetheless!

It would be a mistake to overlook this experience. The pricing is better than expected, and The experience of a lifetime could be passed up. This Captain covers all angles and very prepared for the unforeseen.

Research what you want to fish for, and try to talk to the Boat Captain before going out. Captain Byrd of Hitman Sportfishing took time to listen to the kids, and after finding out my son dreamed of catching a shark, Hitman Sportfishing made it happen.

Captain Randy did a great job, worked hard to get us fish on the sound side due to ruff seas. Kept the wives happy with the fish dinner they rated 5 stars and we were kings for a day. They think we worked hard putting food on table. Just a great day on the water!!Will book with him again next time.

We had a great day on the water with Captain Doug and First Mate Ben. They made the experience easy, laid back, and fun. Even though the seas were rough and the fish weren't biting, they did all they could to give us a catch and we still wound up with a couple great fish.

We had a great time fishing with Captain Ralph & Ig. It was a beautiful day to be on the ocean and we landed 26 albacore tuna and one Spanish mackerel. If you are looking for a fishing charter Captain Ralph is the guy to call. One word of advice, bring coolers, we didn’t and had to buy 3 styrofoam coolers to bring back our catch. Thanks for a great day Ralph & Ig.

Once again we had a great time. This was my second charter of the week and Randy delivered a second time. We started spot fishing for Bluefish and Redfish, moved on to drift fishing for Flounder and finished trolling for Spanish Mackerel. Tried to find a birthday drum for me but the fish werent cooperating. I would book another charter with Randy in a heartbeat

Day before trip, Captain Mike contacted me and discussed the best time to fish the next day (weather conditions) and we adjusted our schedule. Had a great time, and caught fish. His rates are very reasonable compared to other fishing charters, and would definitely recommend him if you are looking for a charter out of Wanchese.

I had a blast with Randy. We checked of several species and we fished several different ways. Started with Trout in the Morning then caught Sheepshead and Blue fish after the trout stopped biting. If you have a chance book a charter with Randy, you won't regret it.
