Fishing on the Outer Banks

Hatteras Island and the entire Outer Banks have always been an important destination for summer vacation fun. Nothing says fun like a family beach trip with the kids playing in the sand and dad watching a fishing rod. Catching a fish dinner while on vacation is a fantastic memory.

Beach surf fishing in the Rodanthe, Waves and Salvo area is just a matter of hiking over a dune while carrying some chairs, fishing gear and a little bait. Normally you won't need a lot of heavy saltwater fishing tackle. Experience has shown that it isn't necessary to make long casts or use heavy weights. Try fishing in the feeding zone just beyond where the waves are hitting the beach. Use just enough weight to allow your bait to hold bottom and be slowly pushed inward by the waves.

Are you looking for a more adrenaline pumping family fishing adventure? Consider a charter out of world famous Oregon Inlet. These yachts and their professional crews can provide a half day inshore trip or a spectacular offshore big game experience that you won't soon forget.
