Always enjoy fishing on Country Girl Charters. Captain Charles and his crew know where to find the fish and how to get them in the boat. Can't wait till the next trip! They are family friendly too!

We had a great time on this fishing trip. Our captain and guide were friendly and helpful. Everyone caught something, including flounder. Was a real value and definitely would go again!

Everyone has their own rod and fishes at the same time. Fish cleaning is an up charge.

I'm sorry for the late response. We don't have any overnighters available although that sounds like a fun thing to do. We recommend that our customers contact the Miss Hatteras. They are in Hatteras and if they don't do it... More
