See my post on the main Message site. You use the word Deep Sea. That term is very subjective and not really used commonly to describe trips on the Outer Banks. I can only assume you are talking about Offshore/Gulfstream fishing for Tuna/Dolphin/Marlin. These trips are Full Day trips normally leaving 5AM and returning after 4 PM. Half day trips are Inshore. Now depending on boat/marinas/Captain, Inshore can be both Ocean and Sound whereas some boats will differentiate between Ocean and Sound fishing. Most Sound fishing will he from small, open outboard powered skiffs. Please make sure you know what kind of fishing you want to do. Just sayin, it's not as easy as most people think. Then there are those who just want to go fishing, species and boat size, location doesn't mean anything and their budget will determine what type of trip. Good luck.
