Charter Fishing TipsThings You Need To Know Before You Go

  • Come prepared to have a good time. It's always great to be on the water in the beautiful surroundings of the Outer Banks, to be catered to by a guide with the expertise of Captain Williams, and to catch the fish that abound in these waters. It'll be a trip you'll never forget.
  • Captain Williams is happy to provide for you as part of his service:
    • All the bait, tackle, rods & reels you will need on the boat.
    • Ice and onboard coolers for your catch.
    • There are life preservers and jackets for everyone.
  • You and your party will need to bring the following:
    • A small cooler with food & drink for yourselves, to be stored onboard during the trip.
    • Proper clothing for the day. Remember to wear a hat and sunblock for skin protection.
    • Raingear or warm clothing, if you think you might need them for comfort. Remember, air temperatures are often 10 - 20 degrees cooler on the water than at the dock, especially April - May and September.
    • A larger cooler back at your vehicle, for all the fish you're going to catch and take home. A typical problem that arises is that the fish cooler is too small. Be prepared!
    • A camera and lots of film. Charter fishing trips are an excellent opportunity to collect memories!
  • It's very important to call Captain Williams just before you leave to meet for the trip. Water and weather conditions can change, and the fish are not always in the same place. We will give you specific details on where we're going fishing, and where to meet the boat.
  • As a rule, you will not be obligated to pay for the trip if high winds or waves, storms, etc. force the boat to stay at the dock. You will be responsible if you leave the dock on your trip and come back early due to reasons beyond the control of Capt. Williams, such as seasickness, tiredness, or time constraints.
  • Captain Williams' determination of whether you will be able to go fishing or stay in port due to weather conditions will be final.
