Inshore Light Tackle Fishing

Strategically located near Frisco, Buxton, and Avon, we specialize in inshore light tackle fishing in the Outer Banks and Pamlico Sound, home to some of the best back-country and flats fishing. Thrilling catches like red drum await, amidst a variety of species in these rich waters. Setting sail from Teach’s Lair, we explore the shallow grass flats of the Pamlico Sound, and when conditions are favorable, we venture out through Hatteras Inlet for inshore and nearshore fishing. Expect encounters with cobia, Spanish mackerel, and albacore, all while creating lifetime memories with every cast.

OBX Charter Fishing Red Drum

The Red Drum is the State fish and Hatteras holds the WORLD record for the biggest catch at 94 pounds, 2 ounces. The Red Drum is a hard fighting fish that makes it all worth the catch, and an amazing charter fishing in Hatteras experience. They hung out in the shallow end of the coastal waters of the Carolina coast. Plus, great table fair and a local favorite. Book with Tightline Fishing Charters and Captain Aaron will give you the best chance to catch that monster Red Drum (and hopefully the world record)!

My 30 years of experience in fishing all types of game and meat fish has provided me with the knowledge of how quality fishing tackle is needed to fill the box.
