Share expenses for offshore fishing trips




I'm in Hatteras sometimes 3 to 4 weeks at a time. I have my own boat and I go offshore fishing. Unfortunately I don't have that many Connections in Hatteras for people to join me. This is not a charter I'm just looking for one or two guys that would share expenses equally and share the catch equally. I have all the equipment but I'm looking for a few good guys that are knowledgeable on how to set out lures on Outriggers and possibly even gaffing the fish. If you have knowledge of where and when to fish that would be a win-win for both of us. Scheduling and availability seem to be the most difficult parts of these trips. I don't have a very large boat so I have to pick my days very carefully. Sometimes there's only one or two days notice let me know if you're interested

Try joining or contacting the Outer Banks Anglers Club. Nice bunch of people who do a lot of boat fishing. Unfortunately they stop there monthly meetings in the Summer. Also their meetings are held in SS. They share boat trips all the time. Next suggestion would be the other Surf Fishing clubs on Hatteras and Nags Head or NC Beach Buggy Assoc. Although they are mostly Surf, they are "Diehard" fisherman and might jump on the opportunity. Lastly talk to the Tackle Shops and Marinas. You may get some takers that dont fit your style, you'll have to learn by trial and error

You might want to try the Main Forum. Over the years I've determined that most who follow the Fishing Section here are one week vacationers who mostly Surf or "Shore fish along with Kayakers. As you say you are looking for more experienced offshore fisherman. You have to tap either the locals or people who own houses here and spend a lot of time here. Good Luck.

Thanks for all the great suggestions I'm going to try all of them

Couple of things. Speak to some mates down at the docks they would help you out with advice. Also go find John Mortensen down at teach's lair marina and ask for help. he used to post up here every so often but I know he gave up.
Aslo call down to the Cape hatteras Anglers club and speak to the secretary or go find Ginny ( they will know who she is) and she can help you out.

Going to be in Hatteras for first time ever October 15 - 23. I have some boating and fishing experience. I will be fairly flexible with my time. I will be fishing somewhere! Text me at 803-429-9478 if it looks possible. Rob.
