Limit your expectation to the time of year and what fish are biting. Do a little research and as long as you know what to expect and you get a good crew (check out the reviews) you should have a great experience.

Our catch was on the small side but considering the time of year it was better than I expected and a fun day at sea for our party of 6. The crew of the Prowler definitely made our day an enjoyable one.

Get a good nights sleep the night before and make sure you eat properly evening before and morning before you leave. There is nothing worse than getting up real early after too little sleep, not feeling great because you ate terrible or drank too much the night before, get on a rocking boat with diesel fumes, and then get rocked by waves. It will not be a pleasant experience. If you prepare well for the trip, it will be worth every penny and you will leave with an excellent experience.

Allow yourself a couple of possible days to go fishing. Wind and weather can be unpredictable year-round and it's nice to have another day to go if you get blown out.

Be sure to read the reviews thoroughly before booking a charter fishing trip. I did better fishing from the beach than spending ~$480 for 1/2 charter.

I would not really know as it was not the Captains intent to go on a fishing trip, and we did not drop anchor or use live bait. I would not use your services again.

Hatteras may be closest point getting to the gulf stream. A longer drive but still may be the shortest route/time to the gulf.

Enjoy the ride even if you don't catch a lot or anything. Good days and bad days out there and it's not the captains fault!

I have been fishing the OBX for two decades, from Hatteras to Oregon Inlet...it's world class and challenging.. Be prepared for the sporty waters.....it can be snotty, but the fishing is great..

Check fishing reports before booking, it was very slow and we caught very few fish

Take a deep sea charter, fish the sound from the end of Hatteras island (get an ORV Permit at the lighthouse), try squid bait.

These guys know the terrain and will help teach you the ins and outs. Very informative about how to fish the area in the boat or not. Just ask them what you want to know.

Definitely get something for nausea such as a scopolamine patch from your Doctor. Seasickness is no joke!

Book a charter and talk to local fishermen. Every time I asked anyone, they were friendly and helpful.
