NC Guided Inshore Fishing Charters

On the Outer Banks, half day inshore charters are a family favorite for area vacationers. The waters around Oregon Inlet provide fast dependable fishing results without the long two hour boat rides necessary to reach the Gulf Stream. The inshore waters are normally quite calm and never crowded. Inshore fishing allows anglers of all ages to enjoy the affordable experience of an Outer Banks fishing excursion.

After the first of June each season the schooling bluefish and spanish mackerel begin to collect just outside Oregon Inlet. Carolina Style trolls the areas near the shoals and adjacent waters down the immediate beaches. Anglers normally don't need to wait long before the mate is calling "fish on" and the anglers are reeling in their next dinner.

There are certain other times of the year when larger species like cobia, red drum and even striped bass are available. If you specifically want to target these species please discuss it with Capt. John when making your reservation and he'll let you know whether they are biting yet.

The Carolina Style is loaded down with all the latest electronics to give us the maximum advantage over the fish.
