Near Shore Charter Trips

Large family groups with kids vacationing on Hatteras Island often get to catch spanish mackerel on an inshore near shore charter fishing trip.

Target species include: bluefish, cobia, red drum, king mackerel, greater amberjack, spanish mackerel and a variety of different shark species.

We provide all top quality equipment (rods and reels etc.), bait and lures. For near shore we use Penn and Shimano conventional reels and Penn Slammer rods. You are always welcome to bring your own rod and reel and any other bait you prefer, but our bait and tackle have been time tested to maximize your day on the water. Please be sure to let us know what you are expecting from your day offshore so we can do our best to accommodate your wishes.

Plan to bring enough food and drink for your day offshore (none will be available for purchase on the Stormy Petrel II). Coolers are welcome. Also, don't forget sunglasses, sunscreen, rain gear (or extra clothes in case you get wet) and of course any needed medications. Don't let seasickness ruin your trip; take medication before the trip. Please wear soft-soled shoes on the boat. If you know that you or a family member is susceptible to motion sickness please read this important article about a great product called Relief Band.

We are open for charter most weekdays for half day near shore charter fishing or full day near shore charter fishing trips! Fish cleaning is available on the premises at Hatteras Landing Marina for an additional fee or you can take your catch with you to fillet at home. Remember, you will not need to purchase additional fishing licenses because all licenses are provided by our boat.

During summer three departure times are available: Early morning (6 AM) Late morning (10:30 AM) and Afternoon (3:00 PM)
