Outer Banks - Bottom Fishing
Bottom fishing on the Country Girl generally offers a chance to catch more fish than inshore trips offer and gives anglers the chance to experience an offshore excursion at an affordable price, Unlike Gulf Stream trips where you are responsible for chartering the entire boat, this trip allows you to purchase individual tickets. A maximum of 27 anglers travel 5 to 50 miles offshore and drop lines over rocky bottom, and artificial reef. In water running 60 to 300 feet we find edible fish such as black sea bass, triggerfish, gray tile fish, bluefish, dolphin, amberjack and sharks. Bottom fishing trips are scheduled Tuesday-Friday in-season departing at 7am and returning at 4pm. Check our calendar for available dates. The trips fill up quickly so it is important to plan a week to two weeks ahead. Extra perks: seeing offshore beauty such as sea turtles, whales, dolphin, and pelagic birds. Everything is provided except your food and drink and a tip for the mate!
2017 Rate – $120 per angler
Do to the uncertainty of bottom fishing regulations, tickets
for each month will be sold during the previous month.
For example tickets for June will be sold starting on May 1’st.
For the same reason we will no longer be offering bottom fishing on private charters.
