  • 3/4 day ~ 6 hours

  • If weather or emergency pushes us off the water early, a deal will be worked out.  We are very fair and would not want to have our customers waste their money. 
  • The captain reserves the right to cancel due to weather.  The Captain will not take clients out in weather he knows will totally impair our ability to do what we set out to do, and he will definitely not risk your safety.  
  • Deposits will be refunded if customer cancels three weeks or more before the trip.
  • If you should decide to cancel within three weeks of the scheduled trip, you will not be refunded your deposit, unless we can find someone to fill your spot.

Cape Lookout Inshore Fishing
1/2 Day: $375
3/4 Day: $450
Full Day: $550

     These trips are usually 1/2 or 3/4 day trips because of the tides.  When the water is low, it is difficult or impossible to fish the shallow waters.  We can leave early in the morning, as usual, or schedule departure to catch the higher end of the incoming and outgoing tide to maximize your time on the flats.  We will be flexible in working the details out in advance.  Fish available on these trips will be the usual suspects: Red Drum, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Bluefish, Sharks and Jack Crevalle.

Cape Lookout Nearshore Fishing
1/2 Day: $400
3/4 Day: $500
Full Day: $600

    We offer 1/2 days for Nearshore Fishing, but recommend at least the 3/4 day for the full experience, greater range and maximum chance of finding incredible fishing.  On a half day, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Flounder, Gray trout, Black Sea Bass and Sharks will be our usual guests.  On a 3/4 day, more options open up and Cobia, False Albacore, Atlantic Bonito, Red Drum, Amberjacks, King Mackerel and other large bounty become more readily available.  A full day offers the greatest range and the greatest chance to find what you came for.  You may find yourself 15 or more miles from the inlet! The same fish that are available on a three quarter day trip are even easier to find and play with on a long fishing adventure!

"Cape Lookout Combo" Inshore/Nearshore Expedition
3/4 Day: $475
Full Day: $550

     Ask Capt. Will about an Inshore and Nearshore combination trip.  This is our bread and butter at Bounty Hunter Guide Service.  This type of trip is why the Captain chose the boat he did.  The 22ft bay boat Capt. Will runs is incredibly versatile and perfect for doing both flats fishing and nearshore fishing in the same outing.  One minute we could be catching red drum on topwaters and the next minute, we could be chasing Spanish Mackerel and False Albacore with fly gear! We are truely blessed with an amazingly diverse fishery here at the Crystal Coast...  (This type of trip is possible any day of the year, but much more productive in the Spring and Fall at Cape Lookout, so keep that in mind when choosing what trip you are interested in and, again ask Capt. Will about it before booking to see what is recommended.

Neuse River Monster Red Drum Adventure
3/4 Day: $500
Full Day: $650

     This fishery is one of the most exciting that North Carolina has to offer.  The Pamlico Sound and Lower Neuse River is home to the largest redfish in the world...  NC produces monster red drum (world record caught out of Hatteras was 94 pounds!!!).  The reason this adventure is only available as a 3/4 day or full day is because of the time involved in finding these behemoths.  These magnificent fish are a fish of a lifetime and we can usually put multiple in the boat in a day of fishing for them!
