TYPES OF TRIPS
The "Happy Crabber" trip is a calmwater, education and family-friendly fishing trip. We start off the trip fishing by either trolling for Spanish Mackeral and Bluefish or Bottomfishing for Flounder, Sea Mullets, Croakers, Spots, and Trout. During the last half of the trip, we go crabbing!
The "Inlet Adventures" trip is designed for a crew that prefers to stay in sight of land. We will be trolling for Spanaish Mackeral & Bluefish while looking for Cobia or bottom-fishing and live-baiting on some inshore wrecks for Triggerfish, Seabass, Amberjacks and Sharks.
BLUEWATER TROLLING/BOTTOM-FISHING COMBO TRIP
This is an offshore fishing trip for those who want to catch bigger fish! We start out fast trolling once we get off the beach in about 100 feet of water—fishing for Mahi Mahi & Wahoo. Then we troll out to the bottom-fishing grounds and switch over and start fishing for Almaco, Amberjacks, Seabass, Triggerfish, Snappers and Sharks. We are also rigged to fish for the Mahi on light spinning tackle as well as butterfly jigging with larger spinning tackle for Amberjacks and Blackfin Tuna.
COBIA SIGHTCASTING TRIP
Hatteras offers some great Cobia fishing. Generally on a trip, we are sight casting for them with bucktails from the 40 foot high tuna tower. There are a lot of conditions that have to happen for this trip to work—you need clear water, warm water and sunshine. This type of fishing is kind of like deer hunting from a tree stand—you're not going to get one every time you go and just because you see them, that doesn't always mean you're going to get lucky. On a typical day, we ride around trolling catching Spanish Mackerel & Bluefish while we are looking for the Cobia. At times, we also encounter huge schools of Big Red & Black Drum which can also be caught sight casting on the bucktails. On days when sight casting conditions are not right, we either drift with bait or anchor up and bait fish which can also work well. May and June are the best months for this type of trip and the limit is 4 Cobia to the boat with a 36" fork length.
