Nags Head is a city in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, and it’s a fisherman’s paradise. It lures and reels in anglers from all over the states for an unforgettable day on the water. Nags Head and the surrounding areas are famous for their deep-sea fishing. Still, there is excellent near and inshore fishing. Many Nags Head fishing charters are located in the seven main marinas throughout the Outer and Inner Banks. These charters are run by local experienced fishing captains that know the water and fish and use this knowledge to fill your coolers with tasty fish.

The waters offshore from Nags Head are famous for their giant trophy fish that call the deep waters home. When you go for a full eight-hour or more day trip to the Gulf Stream, you will battle with trophy fish like Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo. Then, you might experience the thrill when a giant Blue Marlin chomps on your bait and dances and leaps while you fight to reel it in.

However, these are not the only fish in the waters off the coast of the Outer Banks. There have been many wrecks here throughout the years. These wrecks and the reefs that caused their demise are breeding grounds for various fish. Monster Cobia, Kingfish and Amberjack, and many bottom fish like Snapper and Grouper are all waiting for you to drop a line.

Many sounds in the Inner Banks of Nags Head offer exciting inshore fishing. The calm inshore waters and light tackle gear are great for kids to enjoy the thrilling action of landing a fish. You’ll find Redfish, Flounder, Sea Trout, Striped Bass, Bluefish, and other fun gamefish in these waters.

Nags Head and the Outer Banks is a vacation destination for many. But, it is a fishing destination for anglers in the know. World record fish are caught each year off the coast, and no matter where you go fishing with your Nags Head charter, you are in for a fun and action-filled day and a cooler full of fish.
