Light Tackle and Fly Fishing Shallow Water Flats Fishing

The Inshore waters around Cape Lookout offer Light Tackle & Fly Fishing Year Round!! Redfish can be seen, in the clear water, cruising the flats and mudding the bottom in the summer and fall. Stalking tailing redfish on flood tides in the Spartina Grass can be very exciting. In the winter and spring we are fishing in the tidal creeks and on the beaches. Speckled Trout, Black Drum, and Flounder also can be caught in these areas on Fly or Spin Tackle. Local knowledge, experience, and patience are necessities when trying to successfully stalk and catch redfish. Our goal is to provide a great, safe time on the water with the best opportunity to catch fish.
