Despite the fact that charter fishing requires long hard days on the ocean, hours of preparation for each and every trip and relatively short nights of sleep, catching fish is something Captain Smith loves to be able to provide for all his Outer Banks charter guests. He appreciates each and every customer that he has had the pleasure of guiding and putting on great fish catches. Every trip is a new learning experience for him as well as his guests. Captain Smith often invites well mannered curious guests to sit at the helm with him and discuss the intricacies of offshore and inshore sportfishing.

Captain Smith likes to provide onboard boat photographs from each trip plus the dockside pictures of the catch whenever it is possible. Plus he likes to write a thank you to his guests as well as a short recap of the day's experiences which he regularly posts on his Facebook page Wild Card's Outer Banks Fishing Reports.

Makeup Split Group Charters - Wanchese, NC

Sometimes vacationers want to go on a deep sea offshore sportfishing charter but cannot find a full maximum group of six anglers. Wild Card offers custom last minute makeup split group charters which include vacationing guests from all over including Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills, Duck and Kitty Hawk each designed around those anglers looking to share expenses. This is a great opportunity for one or two anglers that just want to try their luck at fishing while the rest of the family may be out enjoying the beach or shopping until they drop. Since most of our makeup charters are "short notice" trips, it is preferable that you contact Capt. Frank directly by phone (252-402-5800) rather than by email. He can tell you immediately whether he has any makeup anglers scheduled or if he has additional anglers already waiting for a makeup charter to be scheduled. Call Capt. Frank if you and your crew would like to be put on his "short notice" contact list so that he can call you as soon as something comes up.

Wild Card proudly supports tourism in all Outer Banks towns and villages including Wanchese, Manteo, Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills, Kitty Hawk, Southern Shore, Duck and Corolla, NC.
