Year round we offer, Sea Trout, Slot Drum, Striper, Flounder and other species. License Included!
Captain Dave was awesome it wasn’t a slammer day but we caught several spices and put fish in the Cooler he never gave up on putting us on fish. If you want a Captain that knows the water and where the fish could be then go fishing with Pamlico Pirates We had a great day and better time hanging with Captain Dave. Book your next trip with him. 5 Star

During this time of the year, we also have spawning Tarpon as a bonus! Let's get you hooked up! License is covered by Captain Dave.
My buddy and I are avid fishermen and had a fantastic trip and time with Captain Dave Hegel fishing for Old Drum on the Neuse during our two day charter! I can't say enough good things about him. He put us on the bait and fish both days, and covered a very large area. We had a blast! Other than his extensive knowledge of the river, fish and ecosystem, he was very personable and just a great, fun guy to fish with. He was very patient, going above and beyond to make sure our trip was a great experience. I have my own boat, but it's not worth the money and trouble/time pulling to the coast when I can simply pack a bag and meet him at the dock for a great day of fishing. I plan to book at least two trips with him next year, and every year thereafter. He'd be great with kids as well. Worth every penny!! Want to thank him personally for everything!!
