Fishing excursions for half day

We are staying in Duck. Is the Sunset Watersports a good place to reserve for fishing trips? Is there a better place? Is it more expensive than most? Do you have to have fishing gear or do they rent the gear to you?

They provid all the gear you need, Not sure of Sunset Water sports but that is just sound side fishing if you want to go out into the ocean you will need to travel to Origon inlet fishing center or Pirates cove Marina they both offer 1/2 day head boat trips

Sunset Watersports doesn't charter out of Duck. They are on the Currituck Sound. Have no information about their boat or where it is berthed.

Your best bet from Duck is Broadcreek Fishing Center in Wanchese on Roanoke Island.


The charter boats have all the gear and bait.

Or you could drive further to Oregon Inlet or even farther to Hatteras for a charter.

Oregon Inlet is by far the most popular place to arrange fishing trips. They have a party boat for 1/2 day trips. Pirates Cove also has many choices.

My last two (2) Fishing trips, I booked them at Jims Bait & Tackle in Duck. Both departed out of Oregon Inlet and they were great trips.
