What's Included:
We hold all necessary licenses and permits and provide all tackle and bait. However, if you prefer to bring some of your own gear, feel free to do so.

What's Not Included:
The charter cost does not include a 20% tip for our hard-working and professional mate.

Also not included is the cost to have your fish cleaned by the professionals at Jeffrey's Seafood. Jeffreys is located on the marina premises and will take your fish from the dock, clean, store, and ship your catch.

What to Expect Onboard: 
During the cold months, a deep sea fishing charter off North Carolina can yield excellent catches of yellowfin tuna and bluefin tuna, along with the feisty fighter and extremely tasting fish called wahoo. 

An angler aboard an offshore charter October - March can look forward to filling his or her freezer with yellowfin; catches of 2 to 3 hundred pounds per day are not unusual. The solitary swimming wahoo will often add to that amount.

We expect to see bluefins show up around November and last through the middle of March. The Tuna Duck specializes in jigging and popping for bluefin. Anglers are welcome to bring their own gear for this particular fishery if they wish, but we have the necessary equipment on board as well.

The Tuna Duck is a 50' Custom built Cape Hatteras charter fishing boat, designed specifically for fishing the offshore waters off Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. The Tuna Duck was built in 1985 by Captain Buddy Cannady of Manteo, North Carolina. She was launched in April '85 and purchased in October of that year by Capt. Jerry Shepherd, the sole owner until 2007 when Capt. Dan Rooks joined Jerry as co-owner. Capt. Rooks has been her captain since that time.

In the continuing quest to offer a quality charter service, we are upgrading. Sound down acoustic insulation and climate control will offer added comfort for our passengers. Pictured, Josh starting modifications for A/C installation. The cockpit is roomy enough for 6 anglers to fish quite comfortably. It is configured with 2 fiberglass sailfish chairs and a Scopinich Bluefin Unlimited fighting chair. The heated salon has 2 large bench seats with thick cushions that encompass the entire starboard and port sides. There is plenty of room for coolers and other gear.
