The Outer Banks has been built around a fish catching tradition that goes back several decades. Charter fishing 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 some fish and have a lot of fun while we are doing it. We'll keep you informed with the latest news and pictures on our Outer Banks fishing reports when you select "Follow Us" on our Wild Card Facebook and G+ page. Please read our Client Reviews.

Sometimes an angler really wants to go on a sportfishing charter but it is hard to find a full group of six anglers to schedule the charter. Wild Card now offers split group makeup charters that are designed for the individual anglers who are looking to share expenses with like minded anglers. This is a great opportunity for the angler that just wants to try his luck at fishing while the rest family hits the beaches.

Since most makeup charters are short notice trips please contact Capt. Smith directly by phone (252-402-5800) rather then 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.
