The Boat


The Tightline is a 24′ Kencraft Skiff with a 175HP Evinrude E-Tech engine. You’ll find it provides an exceptionally powerful ride for an exceptional well built boat. It was built in Wilson, NC, and has a tower to make it easy to find the fish. The boat is also equipped to be fly fishing friendly. I have equipped it with popup cleats to remove a chance of causing a snag on your trip.

All Coast Guard required equipment is on-board. Navigation electronics to get us to the secret spots time after time. I have a Jack-Plate to get into the shallower water in chase of our prey.

Tightline, Outer Banks Fishing

The Tightline is equipped with light tackle to include custom IRT Reels and Black Hole USA rods. Once we are at the secret spots, we’ll use this tackle to start filling the coolers.

My 30 years of experience in fishing all types of game and meat fish has provided me with the knowledge of how quality fishing tackle is needed to fill the box. I have selected IRT Reels and Black Hole USA fishing rods due to their high quality and excellent endurance in this high demand environment.

IRT Reels

You are welcome to bring your personal tackle on your trip to the back-country fishing of the shallow flats of the Pamlico Sound or near shore fishing grounds.
