The “Outer Banks” of North Carolina

The “Outer Banks” of North Carolina is a True Fisherman’s Paradise

By Amy Lignor

The “menu” of species is endless when talking about the “Outer Banks” of North Carolina—and that’s not an exaggeration. Commonly caught fish run the gamut: When it comes to offshore fishing, not only can you reel in everything from the Striped bass, speckled trout, drum, flounder, croaker, and spot, but you also have the blue marlin, white marlin, sailfish, yellow-fin tuna, wahoo, and even more to choose from. What you need to experience this perfect offshore fishing vacation, however, is a guide with a resume that’s just as long as the list of species you can attain—which comes in the form of Captain Jeremy Hicks.

Calypso Sportfishing, located at the Hatteras Harbor Marina, is the company Captain Hicks calls his own. From an early age, he’s been an avid fisherman. Growing up in the mountains of North Carolina, the Captain has been fishing out of Hatteras for over 11 years, first as a mate and now at the helm. Extremely knowledgeable in both species and location, taking a trip with him is a real adventure.

To experience the pristine fishing waters off Hatteras Island, you will join Captain Jeremy Hicks aboard the Calypso, which is utilized for these full-day offshore Gulf Stream fishing charters. Departing Hatteras Harbor at sunrise, Calypso takes you and your group to the Gulf Stream waters in comfort. Depending on the season, you’ll then fish for tuna, wahoo, and a myriad of others. Also, you can expect to see various types of magnificent marine life, like porpoises and flying fish, as well as pelagic birds, like petrels and shearwaters.

This is one unforgettable vessel. A beautiful 45′ Custom Carolina Sportfisher built by Capps Boatworks, Calypso is the newest boat in the Hatteras Harbor Offshore Fleet. In addition to getting to the fishing ground faster, you’ll experience world-class sportfishing on a first-class boat. Equipped with a refrigerator, air conditioning, and a private bathroom for your convenience, the latest Garmin Electronics and Shimano Tackle, from spinning rods to 100# class, are on the Calypso to provide you and your party with fun and safety while on the water.

Running all year long, Captain Hicks also offers live bait king mackerel trips in the fall and custom trips, as well as corporate and tournaments. Also, the Calypso runs half-day nearshore trips where you can reel in everything from cobia to red drum and black drum. On the nearshore trips, there is also a possibility of fishing a historical wreck for sea bass, mackerel, barracuda and amberjack.

With outstanding packages available (Full-Day Offshore Fishing $1575; Half-Day Nearshore Fishing $740, May through October), Captain Hicks and Calypso are the perfect “mates” that are guaranteed to make your sportfishing vacation an annual event.
