With Outcast Fishing Charters OBX, you can trust that you will have an expert fishing guide who knows the ins and outs of the Wanchese fishing scene. Whether you're a seasoned angler or a novice, Captain Lance Luke will provide personalized instruction and guidance to help you catch that trophy fish. Our fishing reports provide valuable information for planning your next fishing trip. We cover the latest conditions, trends in the area, and recommendations for the best equipment and techniques to use based on current conditions. Starting out in Wanchese to the inshore, nearshore, and inlet, as well as offshore/tower/wreck fishing, we cover accurate fishing reports on the top fishing spots in Outer Banks.


These are the most frequently asked question we get a lot. What fish are running in Wanchese? Does Wanchese have clear water? Where can I catch snook in Wanchese? These are all great questions, Wanchese is known to be an anglers paradise. There are always fish running in Wanchese, we see seasonal runs of Tarpon and also have a ton of resident snook, Redfish, Flounder, Sheepshead and more! When it comes to catching snook the Indian River is second to none! The water in Wanchese is also known to be very clear which can lead to some really exciting sight fishing opportunities for Redfish and more !


Captain Lance provides an extensive selection of fishing charters throughout the year in Wanchese. Their fishing trips range from 3-hour quick fishing trips to full-day excursions. Captain Lance offers a range of fishing techniques, including bottom fishing, drift fishing, light and heavy tackle, jigging, trolling, and spinning and popping, depending on the season and targeted fish species. If weather conditions allow, they predominantly focus on Cobia fishing from May 15 to June 15. Captain Lance and his team are passionate about sharing their knowledge and experience of fishing in the stunning Wanchese location with fellow avid anglers. They are excited to welcome you on board and provide you with a memorable fishing experience.
