I have over 30 years of experience fishing from the blue water to back-country. My primary focus is to put you on the fish and create a day you will want to share again and again with friends and family. So many people miss out on the awesome inshore fishing opportunities they can experience while visiting Cape Hatteras. Don’t let yourself be one of them. Come down to Hatteras and enjoy the best of inshore light tackle fishing as we head out to find red drum, flounder, bluefish, gray trout, spotted sea trout, cobia, and the many other species that swim in these waters.

Pamlico Sound

We will be leaving out of Hatteras Harbor Marina to fish the shallow grass flats of the Pamlico Sound. Using light tackle, our target species are speckled trout, blue fish, flounder, black drum and of course my specialty, red drum. If conditions are right, we may venture out through the Hatteras Inlet to do some inshore and near shore fishing for cobia, spanish mackeral, and albacore.

Fly fishing

Anyone interested in fly fishing is also welcome. I have equipped by boat with popup cleats to help remove any possibility from your trip and catch getting snagged.

Tightline can also provide an afternoon of clamming/crabbing. Clamming is a great way to cool off and soak your feet in the warm water of the Pamlico Sound. If you’re looking for a one of a kind adventure, book a trip to pull some crab pots and dig some clams. Take home up to 200 clams and a bushel of crabs for dinner. BOOK NOW!!!
