Background
I can’t tell you the first time I caught a fish at the Outer Banks but I can tell you that most of my greatest memories growing up have been centered on fishing around Hatteras Island. I have a true passion for fishing, which has led me to fish at a competitive level for most of my life. After graduating from high school, I was lucky enough to further my education and am currently finishing my Doctorate Degree at the University of South Carolina. During my time in school I have represented multiple universities in Bassmaster, Boat U.S. and FLW college bass fishing events. I currently represent the Gamecock Bass fishing team during the most fruitful time of its existence. Together, we have won back-to-back FLW national championships and already have two teams qualified to compete in the 2017 National Championship. During my experience as a competitive fisherman. I have represented a number of leading brands in the fishing industry including: Berkley, Lews Reels, ALX Rods, Costa etc.
Techniques
One thing I love about fishing is the ability to transfer your knowledge of one species of fish to another species of fish, which can help you catch more effectively and in a variety of circumstances. I’ll never forget one day in July. It was dead calm and the trolling bite had become non-existent. The fish were there, but they’d just become so finicky. We could find schools of mahi-mahi but they wouldn’t even eat a live mullet. I went down in the cabin and pulled out one of my bass set-ups and tried a tactic that I had learned from fishing heavily pressured clear water lakes. After that, we turned the day around in a hurry. Ever since then, I have spent a lot of time coming up with different ways to catch offshore fish. Through my experiences, I have created a unique style of fishing. I am currently working with a number of different companies to create prototypes for different applications that capitalize on the unique methods I’ve discovered while fishing.

Went out on morning half day trip. The captain and his mate was both ready to depart. Captain Ethan was both knowledgeable and friendly because our party consisted of amatures we caught several king makerals. I do recommend Captain Ethan

The boat and crew were both top notch.  Unfortunately, we couldn’t seem to find any fish.  Caught a few really small fish but not what we were looking for.

Captain Ethan was great, did everything he could to get us on good fishing. We caught a bunch of fish the day we went out. Since we got to the boat early he got on the water right away and stayed out longer since he didn’t have a second charter. He was friendly and professional and our group had the best fishing experience possible.

My son and I booked a trip with Captain Ethan and it was a great experience! Very knowledgeable about all of the fish habits(what to use, where to go and the technique to use).
Never a dull moment had lots of action.

I would highly recommend this to anyone and when we come back we’ll be sure to book this again

Was a great trip. We didn’t get the fish we expected but that was due to a sick member of the party. Good experience. Fishing with the captain was like hanging out with a friend. Excellent experience.

Thanks for the Review! I had Fun fishing with you guys.

Had a great time with Ethan.  We had a party of three in relatively rough seas and it would have been difficult for young ones.  Sea bass, yellow jack, shark and large sea turtle were all highlights.  Given the rough conditions, captain was hoppin’ and did a great job. He could certainly use a mate though.

This was an amazing trip! We caught our limit of Mahi and one random tuna. Captain Ethan is very knowledgeable, personable, and fun. We definitely got our money’s worth! We highly recommend Seas the Day and will be booking with him again next time we come to town.

You won’t find a better fishing guide than Captain Ethan Ingle. He’s very personable and made our charter even more pleasant than just having a good day fishing. For our trip, we trolled four lines, including outriggers, and used ballyhoo that Captain Ingle rigged himself. He runs a one boat operation with one crew, who was also good people. We averaged a strike an hour or so, and landed three 25 pound wahoo early on. It was just my wife and I, and unfortunately, we lost three other good fish, including a HUGE wahoo that we got up to the boat, a marlin after it jumped, and what we think was a dolphin fish. We could not have been happier. Keep in mind, bring your own lunch and beverages, and there’s a cleaning operation nearby that fillets and vacuum packs your catch. We’ll book him again.

We brought our four kids to experience a wonderful fishing trip and that is what we got. The captain and first mate were wonderful with the kids and exceeded our expectations. We caught a lot of fish and had a wonderful boat ride. He knew where to go to get us on the fish!! Fresh fish to take home to West Virginia.We will definitely be back to charter again!!
