The Details

Join us for an epic full-day fishing experience starting with check-in at 11 am and ending with the awards ceremony at 10 pm.

We'll be exploring the rich waters of Pamlico Sound, offering a more relaxed and enjoyable fishing experience, unlike offshore fishing.

Your all-inclusive trip package includes a one-night stay at the beautiful River Dunes, a delectable catered lunch and dinner, and an expert fishing guide to help you reel in your dream catch!

Pack light and enjoy a fun and casual trip - no business attire is needed! With September's warm temperatures, shorts, t-shirts, and hats are perfect for daytime activities. Don't forget to bring a jacket for the cooler evening temperatures. As we fish rain or shine, we recommend checking the weather forecast for Oriental, NC, before you leave. In case of light showers, a rain jacket or light coat would come in handy for your fishing adventure.
