Perhaps the reason that this area of maritime forest goes unnoticed, (an area which in fact comprises the majority of Frisco Village), is simply because the oceanfront beaches just yards away are too alluring to ignore, and garner the lion's share of vacationers' interest. This is understandable, as when most folks think of an Outer Banks vacation, they envision miles of unspoiled beaches, refreshing ocean waves, and plenty of room to spread out a beach blanket, and Frisco's beaches have all of these attributes in spades.
Captain Rick Caton is an experienced waterman who runs Custom Sound Charters out of Oden’s Dock in Hatteras Village. He offers a variety of trips such as the Waterman and Inlet Adventures.
The Waterman teaches several ways that seafood is harvested. The trip is on the calmer, backwaters of Pamlico, Croatan and Roanoke Sounds. Live like a waterman by pulling in a shrimp net, catching crabs and doing rod and reel fishing for flounder, trout, bluefish and Spanish mackerel. This is a great trip for families, and children always are welcome to fish with Captain Rick.
Inlet Adventures includes light tackle wreck fishing for black sea bass and triggerfish. You also can troll for Spanish and king mackerel and bluefish. Try sight casting for cobia and red drum and drift backwaters for flounder, sea mullet, croakers and trout.
Captain Rick offers half- and full-day trips. The kind of species you target depends on the weather and season. Tackle and bait is supplied. You bring food and drinks, sunscreen and wear sensible sport shoes. Call to make a reservation. Oden's dock is open year round.
