1. Make certain of where the boat is docked or sails from. This will help in planning for drive time depending on whether you have an early morning or afternoon charter. 2. Hats, sunglasses, and lots of sun screen (or long sleeves) are a must. 3. While a cooler of ice-cold beer is good, ice-cold water is better. 4. Have a second cooler in your vehicle to take home your catch.

Our Captain and 1st Mate were great. But the actual fishing time spent "on fish" was disappointing. After about 2 hours in good water and fish, we left them and took a long slow troll back. Even though lines were in the water, no fish. This was totally obvious and i have experienced this before. Just disappointing for what we pay.

It's still hot in the afternoon so be sure to wear plenty of sunscreen. When booking be sure you know if you're going out just a mile, 9 miles or further ortherwise I found September a great time to go

Parking there was ok. Not clear how the procedure to pay for having the fish cleaned after the trip is to be done.

Try the near shore fishing and use a local boat they know their area and will make it a much better time.

Head on out to Oregon Inlet and give Captain Duke a call. You will be glad that you did.

Don't book it through here there's false advertising as to what you'll be going after

12 to 14 inch blues and Spanish mackerel isn't worth the money or the effort a full day trip might be worth it but definitely not a 1/2 day

Go out early and if you have 6 people fishing then ask for 6 poles to be set up. We had 6 people fishing with 4 poles. Not ideal.
