Hi! Everyone,

I was wondering if you folks out there wouldn't mind sharing some advice/information and experiences (good/bad) about fishing aboard party/head boats. My boss has put me in charge of organizing a fishing trip for our company. I am anticipating 15-20 people (adults and kids) and would like to plan a trip around the 1st week in August. I am located in Durham, NC and would like to drive about 2-4 hours for a boat.

Thanks,

ODSoccer,
Give Oregon Inlet Fishing Center a call. They might be able to reserve space, or possibly the whole boat, on the Miss Oregon Inlet which is the headbaot they run. Clean operation, good fishing
Tight lines and popped riggers

Hi! Everyone,

Thanks for the all the information. I will check into the various boats.

I was wondering about half-day vs full day trips. I have a lot of first timers going and have thought of planning a half-day trip just to get their feet wet. But I have heard that you cannot get to the good fishing sites in half-day trips. Anyone have any good suggestions for me.

Thanks again,

Hi! EVeryone,

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the Vonda Kay out of Topsail Beach. Please let me know any good/bad experiences. Also could anyone please let me know some things I should let my co-workers know before they board the ship and anything they might need to bring with them.

Thanks a bunch,

The boat may or may not provide sea sickness prevention items, so give your co-workers a heads-up about that. Also, yes you are right it is hard to get to good fishing spots with half day trips (gulf stream) because sometimes that can be a 2 or 3 hr. boat ride in itself depending on where you depart from. Give Captain Brant a call at the Ocean Isle Fishing center. He has half day and full day trips to inshore, offshore, and the gulf stream. If its on your boss's expense or your looking to get the first timers in on some good fishing go for the gulf stream. Hope this helps. The kings, dolphin, and cobia are hot species offshore right now.

Don't know about Headboats

specifically but some things you want to bring would be Soda's,some sandwiches. Saltine Crackers and soda will help a upset stomach. And most importantly some Drammamine(SP) or some type of motion sickness medicine.

Also you might want to ask when setting up th gig if you can bring your own tackle. Some will some wont.

Oh yeah don't forget th sunscreen, youd be amazed how fast you can burn with th sun reflecting off th water.
