"What would you recommend to anglers fishing in Hatteras for the first time?" - The weather isn't always going to cooperate and give you a nice day. Talk to your captain ahead of time and they will tell you how to prepare yourself for when you are on the boat. They want you to be comfortable and have a great time, so listen to what they say.

It sounds like the odds are better in the early (spring/summer) season for most species. I think the chamber of commerce may slightly exaggerate fall fishing opportunities.

The marina in Wanchese has a large selection for fishing guides. The marina has an excellent restaurant that is actually quite reasonable in price for the quality of food served. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the local community and was very instructive in the techniques used to fish artificial baits.

Be open and flexible if things don't go as planned. And don't get discouraged if the bite isn't as good as was hoped for. Being on the water on a beautiful day is the cake and catching fish is the icing.

This was the first time fishing in the ocean - it was a calm day and we caught enough fish for many meals. Sound fishing in the past was excellent as well - but we were very satisfied being on the ocean side of the OBX.

The best time to fish Manteo is April May and June. You might need to dodge high winds and hurricanes after July through November. Good news though, Manteo has inshore opportunities in the sound for anglers who love to bring home tasty catches. Speckled Trout and Red Drum are GREAT eating fish. So are sheepshead and Striped Bass.

All I can say is that we had a great day with Shaun and Clayton! Dunn Deal is a fast and comfortable boat with really nice guys working it. My group had a fun time filling the box (Plus a few more for good measure)! I hope to be seeing more of them in my future. Thanks for a very memorable trip Shaun!

Our captain Drew Creef grew up in the area, knew the fishing grounds and knew the fellow anglers that helped us get on the fish. He was very personable, operated the vessel in a safe manner and gave us a great late fall adventure on the OBX. Thank you Drew!

We couldn’t have imagined we would have such a blast. Four adults and two children under 6. Everyone caught fish. Captain Stephen put us on a bunch of king mackerel and mate Bob worked his butt off to keep lines in the water so we could keep reeling em in. Would definitely book with the Gambler again during mahi season in the summer.

This was the best day of our trip, and we had an amazing week! But this topped it off perfectly. Drew was the perfect captain. He knows the waters and the area and exactly where to find the fish! It was choppy and chilly but he was willing to take us out for an adventure. The perfect catch and release, all the fun and adventure and great pics and still set them free. We’ll be back!

Highlight of our weekend at the outer banks. We did the four hour trip and Captain Jonathan was very knowledgeable and took us to several different spots to catch a variety of fish. We plan on booking with him on our next visit.

My son and I had an incredible experience with Got ‘Em Charters. Capt. Jerry was a joy to fish with. Despite a very windy and rainy morning, he quickly got us on a school of sheephead and then a school of red drum! We caught our drum limit! His knowledge of the waters, fish habits, and warm personality were second to none. Couldn’t recommend Capt Jerry and Got ‘Em Charters more highly. Book ‘Em!

Capt Andy is extremely knowledgeable. He is down to earth and a great host and guide. He worked hard to find fish for us. The day started slow but ended with decent action with speckled trout. I would definitely take this trip again and would recommend it to others.

Capt. Mike got us on fish all day long. He is very knowledgeable about the waters and the type of bait to use. He kept in contact with me up until the trip and answered any questions we had. We also had a lot of laughs on our trip! Great time and I would recommend Capt. Mike and fish with him again when I'm in OBX.

One of the best fishing trips I have been on, and I didn't even catch a fish! The Captain of this little boat Taught us a different fishing cast than we were used to. He gave us a wealth of information about the Outer Banks, History, and some folklore, and he was just a great person to spend your day with and enjoy great conversation and fish.

We had a party of four and had an absolute blast with Terry. We caught several fish, a few were keepers. He kept us laughing the entire time. The water was perfect. I would suggest bug spray as we were attacked by mosquitos as soon as we opened the vehicle door at the dock. We will definitely be returning to fish with Terry!

The tuna just weren't biting despite Capt. Paul's best efforts so, late in the day he shifted gears and put us on a variety of of other species. That action was consistent and we boated a few surprises too . Our group had a lot of fun and we enjoyed talking to both Chris and the Capt. Thanks for the memories, I hope we can do it again someday.
