Because the Outer Banks features several different habitats, a day of fishing offers endless possibilities. Depending on the season and your preferences, you could be sightcasting for Cobia, fishing the bottom for Black Drum, or trolling for Mackerel and Striped Bass—all in one day! There are also opportunities closer to shore for Redfish, Flounder, Sheepshead, and Spotted Seatrout. Get ready for great fighting and great eating—Captain Bud will happily clean your catch for you.
On the day of the trip, you'll head out aboard Captain Bud's 24' Skeeter bay boat. She's a fast and versatile craft that can easily handle both the inshore and nearshore waters off of the Carolina coast, and is equipped with all of the necessities—plus a few extras to really give you an edge over the fish and ensure you have a comfortable and enjoyable day.
Captain Bud will bring along everything you need for a fantastic day of fishing, including rods, reels, bait, and tackle. To maximize your experience on the water, remember your sunscreen, a pair of polarized sunglasses, a hat, and the right clothes. Get ready for the trip of a lifetime with Captain Bud!

This charter was absolutely AWESOME. Went in the middle of March, so there were not a whole lot of great fishing options in the outer banks, but Bud, the Captain, made this trip memorable. Caught probably about 15 Stripers, got to keep my limit, also caught a couple large mouth ...Read More bass to top it off. 4 hr trip, we caught the keeper 2 minutes before quittin’ time!! Captain cleaned the fish for me, I took it home, cooked it for the wife, it was absolutely AMAZING. Nothing beats fresh fish, especially striped bass. I’ve done MANY charter fishing trips in my life, this was as memorable as any of them. I STRONGLY recommend this boat and captain. He is also great with communication and availability.

Had an awesome day. Had a nor’easter and a king tide a couple days prior that moved the fish. Captain Bud didn’t take long putting us on fish. Limited out fast and kept catching fish. Great day.

Great trip. We booked a 6 hr AM trip and fortunately we were able to limit early. In the past some captains would just take us on a 2hr boat ride “looking for the giant fish”. Captain bud gave us the option to change the booking to half day trip ...Read More and we decided to finish the day by the pool instead. Thanks for a great day! We will see you next year.
