Captain Charles Foreman grew up in an Outer Banks fishing family and has spent his entire life on boats and in the charter fishing industry. His father, Captain Allan Foreman, a lifelong avid fisherman and respected local captain, helped build the Country Girl with his father-in-law, Buddy Cannady, in 1990, after running the family’s sister ship, Crystal Dawn. Charles began working as a mate on Crystal Dawn when he was 12 years old and got his captains license and started running Crystal Dawn at age 17. Five years later, he became the mate on the Country Girl, working alongside his father for eight years. Following his father’s retirement, Charles took over as captain of Country Girl and continues the tradition of providing Outer Banks fishing customers with a memorable day on the water.
One of the most popular mates in the Outer Banks fishing community, mate William Combs has been working on charter fishing boats out of Oregon Inlet for 15 years. Before that, he worked as a mate on fishing boats in Virginia Beach, Virginia, his hometown. William is known as a people person. The customers love him because he’s always willing to share his fishing knowledge and his stories about life on the water.
