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.

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.

Take dramamine and supplement it with coffee or an energy drink! It will make you drowsy, but it beats the alternative.

Communicate with your captain if you want to try a variety of fishing techniques! If you're a novice ask to do bottom/wreck fishing.

Ask locals for advice, cross the bridge on 12 to the preserve for privacy and of course book with jw charters for a couple hours, as soon as you get here. John’s knowledge and willingness to give free advice will only make you more successful during your stay.

We took two vehicles. Google Maps got one vehicle there fine. Apple Maps was a disaster and sent my daughter miles out of the way. Put the campground across the street in your gps if you are unsure you are going to the right place.

We have fished the surf and sound in the early season for years, but we would end up buying our fish at the seafood market. With the "Poacher" we went out 5 to 7 miles in the ocean and caught 25 sea bass. The 40 foot boat made us comfortable taking on large waves until we reached the fishing area. The captain and the first mate made fishing enjoyable for all. We are looking forward till we vacation again and book the Poacher for another fun time.
