Back Water Outfitters Trips

Get ready to explore the inshore waters of North Carolina's Outer Banks with Captain Austin! This trip is perfect for those looking to tackle the classic North Carolina inshore sportfish—Redfish, Spotted Trout, Black Drum, and Flounder—while also enjoying the beautiful scenery. This trip is a perfect opportunity to practice your cast and retrieve with a variety of different lures and bait. You'll get to test out jigging, top-water retrieves, and some bottom fishing while you try Captain Austin's best spots and "honey holes". You'll get off the dock aboard your guide's 22' KenCraft Bay Rider—the ideal type of vessel for fishing everything from flats to estuaries to inshore structure. With a rigorously-maintained 4-stroke, 115 HP Yamaha motor, you'll be on the fish and hooking up in no time! Captain Austin will come prepared with everything you need for a great day, including rods, reels, bait, and tackle. He's an expert in these waters and will do everything he can to get you hooked up on a personal best! Bring along proper clothing, sunscreen, and a pair of polarized sunglasses to maximize your time on the water. Read More
