Separating the northern Outer Banks from mainland America, the Currituck Sound is one of the first stops for holiday-makers in North Carolina. This expanse of shallow water stretches from Virginia Beach to Kitty Hawk, and is home to some incredible wildlife and marine species. That’s why you should take advantage of a Currituck Sound fishing trip! Come and discover monster fish in stunning settings, as you make the most of the OBX.

With plenty of rivers streaming towards the Atlantic, the waters of the Currituck Sound are considered “brackish.” This means that you can get your hands on some freshwater and saltwater species just minutes from each other. Target exciting Largemouth Bass,Carp, and delicious Perch, along with beauties such as Striped Bass, Spotted Seatrout, and Flounder – you’re almost guaranteed to land exactly what you want. 
 
Most trips run out of the southern portion of the sound, with Duck, Kitty Hawk, and Kill Devil Hills being your best bet for a fishing charter. Professional captains are waiting to take you away for whatever you want! Choose from trips as short as two or three hours to get some delicious Oysters, to a full day on the water going after your favorite fish. You can even come aboard at night and target Flounder and Trout by bowfishing or gigging. 
 
With so much on offer, a Currituck Sound fishing trip promises fun for everyone. Whether you’re an experienced angler or want to teach the kids about fishing, this corner of North Carolina has it all!

January
There aren’t many boats willing to take you offshore in the winter, but you may be lucky enough to find a trip to fill up on Oysters. Head to Duck and harvest some of the world’s most-famous Oysters and Clams.
February
If you’re lucky enough to find a charter to take you to sea, then there’s plenty of action to keep you warm, despite the cold weather. Striped Bass fishing can be particularly fruitful, so come and test your skills.
March
More and more captains start making their way to the sound come spring, with their vessels restored and ready to hit the water. Come and join them for exciting Trout and Drum fishing to fill the boat.
April
Spring has truly sprung in the Outer Banks come April, and the season of new life is reflected in the renewed fishing. Target Red Drum, Black Drum, Trout, and Bluefish inshore and get ready for peak season.
May
You won’t know where to go with the arrival of Mahi Mahi, Cobia, Wahoo, and Blackfin Tuna offshore. Don’t miss out on the Drum run, though, as the sound is overflowing with these beauties. 
June
The short run to the Gulf Stream may tempt you to land that trophy catch, as Blue Marlin and Sailfish arrive. Meanwhile, Tarpon makes its way to the sound, giving you some thrilling inshore fishing too.
July
Holiday-makers from all over the country flock to these coastal spots, and you should come and see why. The fishing has never been better, so book early to avoid missing out on the summer fun in the OBX. 
August
With the kids off school, now’s the time to get them hooked on fishing. Come on a family vacation to any of the Currituck Sound’s stunning resort towns and head inshore, nearshore, or offshore. 
September
There’s no sign of anything changing in the water, with the fishing still red-hot. Head to the Gulf Stream and battle it out with Marlin and Sailfish, hit the reefs for Mackerel, or fish inshore for the usual favorites.
October
Attention shifts back to the Currituck Sound itself as the offshore season comes to a close. Bluefish, Redfish, Black Drum, Spotted Seatrout, and Tarpon are just some of the beauties you’ll come across.
November
As the weather starts to make a fishing trip less predictable, many captains will look to keep their boats in the harbor. The calm waters of the North River, however, are a great place to land Bass and Perch.
December
Celebrate the holidays with Duck’s annual Yuletide Festival, as you’ll be hard-pressed to find a charter to take you to sea. If you are successful, then there’s still plenty of inshore action for you to land a tasty treat.

Not the best time for bass but Captain did a great job finding bass that where on the bite and helping with gear. We came in after the Hurricane and he had no chance to get out and find them before trip. But found bass and put us on them. The captain stayed in contact with me all through the week leading up to my vacation even though the hurricane was bearing down on the obx. This was much appreciated and answerd any of my concerns. Had a great day and caught fish thank you.

You have to drive to nags 1 head hour to get on the boat. I'm in Corolla. I picked this boat because it said duck.

Had a great time with Captain Mike and First Mate Ben even though we couldn’t get the fish biting. Still were able to get one in the boat. Both were very professional and know their craft well. Would highly recommend anyone to go fishing with them. Great day all around.

Crew did a great job making the whole experience easy and relaxing. It was my friend and I and our daughters. The focus was on our daughters, who had a great time. Boat and equipment was in top shape. The guy doing the tackling and stuff did a great job keeping everything going and also talking with us from time to time about what we were doing. We also liked the route they took, as we weren't familiar with the area and were able to see a lot of the surrounding area from the water.

We had a great time! Captain Mike was very helpful and knowledgeable. Mate Wesley was helpful and fun to fish with. The boat was top notch and even though the fish weren’t cooperating, we still caught a few and got to see dolphins and tons of beautiful sights along the way.

Captain Mike and crew went above and beyond to land us a fish. Between the funnel clouds and misc storms they kept us safe. I highly recommend this trip.

Captain Mike and his first mate Bill were extremely personable and made our trip a lot of fun. I wish we would’ve caught something other than ribbonfish but those are the days and that’s why it’s called fishing. I would recommend Captain Mike to anyone that’s going to be going to Outer Banks to charter a trip.

A wonderful experience all the way around! All 6 of our family members landed multiple fish — a great way to spend 4 hours of our vacation. Capt. Mike and Mate Tracy were fantastic. Highly recommend.
