Outer Banks head boat fishing is one of the most economical, family-friendly ways to enjoy a fishing experience. The term head boat means that each passenger pays a fee, per head, to go along on the trip. The Outer Banks head boats are large, stable and comfortable, and they have a high angler capacity, so you can fish with as many friends and family members as you like. Outer Banks head boat fishing is fishing at its easiest and is appropriate for all ages and abilities. One reason Outer Banks head boats are so good for young anglers is that the trips are half day — just the right amount of time for young attention spans. Another good thing is that all bait, tackle, instruction and fishing licenses are provided, as are the services of a knowledgeable fishing mate. This takes the stress out of planning a fishing trip and makes it very fun for everyone, including the adults.
Head Boat Fishing, Outer Banks Style
Most Outer Banks head boats ply the sound waters for bluefish, croaker, flounder, spot, sea mullet, sea bass, puppy drum, trout and more. A couple of the head boats offer offshore game fishing and wreck fishing trips as well. When you get back to the dock, you can have your fish cleaned and bagged to take home and cook yourself. Many of the head boats offer sightseeing trips as well. If you don’t want to fish, you can enjoy a casual sunset cruise.
