Deep Sea Fishing in Nags Head

Deep sea fishing Nags Head is a remarkable experience. The quest for massive Yellowfin Tuna 30 miles offshore may seem like a rite of passage, even for veteran fisherman. The game fish that lurk offshore won’t give anyone an easy time. But, this is why Nags Head’s blue waters are so exciting. The voyage is long and often times there will be no bite for hours. But, once the drag howls, you’ll be fully refreshed. Make sure to be focused to avoid having your line and your hopes crushed.

What species can I catch?

An offshore marathon can get you Wahoo, Yellowfin, Bluefin Tuna, Albacore, Mahi, and Blue and White Marlin. The warm currents of the gulf stream are not that far away, which means that even in low season you can get an enviable catch out there. By out there, we mean anything from 30 miles plus. It may take about an hour and a half to get there, so anything less than a full day trip can be hit and miss. If you want to get the most out if, find an extended charter. Local captains run trip up to 12 hours, and sometimes you can even find a multiday venture into the Atlantic. Don’t get us wrong, super big game is not the only thing to target here. As you head out, you will encounter Mackerel, Mahis, and other pelagics and bottom fish. Speaking of bottom fish, at the 30 mile mark, you can get exquisite bottom catch - Snapper, Tilefish, Sea Bass Grouper, and many more.

When should I go deep sea fishing?

To be honest, it can change. Sailfish work well from June to September. Mahi Mahi peak from May until late summer, while Yellowfin and Bluefin Tuna are excellent in October and November and then again from March to May. Wahoo are present throughout the year, but bite the best during the summer months. Marlin are on the chew from May as well, and stay consistent until August. As for the bottom fish, they are found year round, but just check the limits and regulations before the trip. Once you decide on the date, come for your fish of a lifetime.

A little choppy but if you have a good captain, you’ll find the right trolling area.

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.

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.

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.

Watch the weather. The rain made us change our plans from going offshore rod fishing to shrimping in the sound. Be prepared to adjust your expectations. Fun is where you make it.
