These are some non-target species you might catch during an Outer Banks fishing charter.
We target Spotted seatrout (speckled trout or specks), flounder, Black drum, Bluefish, Striped bass (rockfish), Weakfish, Atlantic croakers, and Red drum but usually catch other species as well.
On any fishing trip, expect to hook recreational by catch such as Pigfish, Pinfish, toadfish, skates, stringrays, Spotted hakes, puffers, Blue crabs, Lizardfish, burrfish, searobins, and more.
You never know what we will catch!
It is fun to quickly inspect these species, take photos, and release them unharmed back into the water.
