The Outer Banks has been built around a sportfishing tradition that goes back several decades. The charter fishing at Oregon Inlet was originally designed exclusively for the serious deep sea sport fishermen. However, Wild Card fills a unique niche by offering a top quality “family friendly” Outer Banks fish catching experience at affordable prices. Our pledge to our valued customers is to catch a few fish and have a lot of fun while we are doing it. Please read our Client Reviews Page to see just how our customers have to say about our personal touch.

Sometimes vacationers want to go on a deep sea offshore sportfishing charter but cannot find the required full group of six anglers. Wild Card offers makeup split group charters that are designed for those individual anglers looking to share expenses. This is a great opportunity for the one or two anglers that just wants to try their luck at fishing while the rest of the family hits the beaches. Since most makeup charters are "short notice" trips please contact Capt. Frank directly by phone (252-402-5800) rather than by email. He can tell you immediately whether he has additional anglers scheduled or anglers already waiting for a makeup charter. He can also put you on a "short notice" contact list and call you as soon as something comes up.
