About me…

Captain AaronI caught the fishing bug when I went fishing with my dad and saw him land a blue marlin. I have been hooked ever since.

My fishing travels have taken me fishing from the Carolinas to the Caribbean. I have fished in south Florida for tarpoon, snook, red grouper, snapper, cobia, and sailfish before moving to the Virgin Islands. In the Virgin Islands I fished for blue and white marlin, wahoo, tarpoon, snook, dolphin (mahi mahi), and tuna.

From the Virgin Islands, I moved to the awesome fishery found in the back-country fishing of the Pamlico Sound. The Pamlico Sound has some unique characteristics for many of the species that we will fish. We will be searching the shallow flats for gray trout, speckled trout, bluefish, flounder, red drum, and black drum. We can also venture through the Hatteras Inlet and do some near shore fishing for cobia, albacore, and spanish mackeral.

Fishing is great where ever you go but I believe the best fishing is the back-country fishing off the Outer Banks in the Pamlico Sound. Here I will take you to many of the excellent secret spots that I have found. Help you create memories and fill your cooler.

My specialty is light tackle and live baiting. 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.

My goal is to provide you the experience that you look forward to coming back to fish on the Tightline again and again. Remember to bring your phones or cameras to take pictures so you can share your fishing experience with your family, friends, hey and even some of your co-workers.

In addition to fishing, Outer Banks clam digging is a great way to get your hands “dirty”. Nice way to spend the hotter summer days in the water. Finish with an evening off with a meal of clams either steamed, fried, grilled or baked.

With the clam digging, I also have added a combination of clam digging and pulling crab pots. This will allow you the opportunity to take home up to a bushel of crabs.

For all duck hunters, have you ever had an interest of hunting waterfowl on the Pamlico Sound? Check out my duck hunting guide service at TnA Guide Service, guiding duck hunts from the end of December through January.
