Headboat charters ?




I want to give my dh a birthday fishing trip. I was wondering what options were out there. It would be just him and my 16 year old son. We will be there second week of Oct. We stay in KH, but would be willing to drive wherever. Thanks!

Hang right here and wait for a gentleman by the name of Pickle. He is a Charter Captain down here and a wealth of trusted information.


RE: Headboat charters ?




Okay welcome to Outer Banks Headboat and Charterboat fishing. This is the abridged version of my usually very detailed answers. Each word (Charter & Headboat) has a different meaning. Charter is where 6 people either as one group or individually (called Make-up charter) go fishing on a "Sportfishing" boat. Headboat is a much bigger boat that can take anywhere from 25 to 50 people fishing for a set individual fee, per person. There is a significant difference as you can see. There are other differences. A Charter Boat usually fishes in the Ocean and can do anything from Gulfstream fishing for Tuna and Dolphin to Inshore fishing for Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel etc. A Headboat usually is Half Day Sound and Inlet fishing for small fish. Big Cost Difference! A Headboat is about $45 or $50 for a Half Day. An Offshore Gulfstream Charter (6 People) can be $1,500 to $2,000. A Make-up Charter can range from $400 per person (Gulfstrem) to $90 for a Half Day Ocean charter. There is a lot more to be said for each. Now if you want Headboat, the three "Northern" Headboats (Chrystal Dawn out of Pirates Cove, Jill Louise OBX Marina Wanchese and Miss Oregon Inlet at Oregon Inlet) usully stop fishing for the year in early October because Sound fishing goes way down hill. Make - up charters can be obtained by calling any of the three major marinas. Lot more to say but I hope this helps you. Good fishing.

Forgot one other thing. There are some small "Charter" boats that take 2, 3 or 4 people Half DaySound fishing for about $475. In October this fishing is pretty good. These are small boats, with no Shelter or Amenities ranging from 21 feet to 26 feet. They can get into 18" of water and catch Drum, Trout and other decent fish if the water stays warm.

This is a little off topic, but I have to ask.

What / who is a dh? I thought it was a designated hitter, but I am guessing that is not it....
