Cape Hatteras has always been known as a premier destination of sportfishing enthusiasts. Anglers prefer Hatteras because of our shorter boat rides to the inlet and the Gulf Stream fishing grounds. Chartering at Cape Hatteras means for a bit longer ride in your vehicle you get a shorter and more comfortable boat ride to the fishing. Our many years of sportfishing tradition at Hatteras Village has resulted in the creation of a well designed convenient all-inclusive fishing experience for our guests.
Our Hatteras offshore sportfishing targets species such as mahi, wahoo, yellowfin tuna, blackfin tuna, king mackerel, sailfish, white marlin and the "king of the Gulf Stream" blue marlin. Our inshore charters usually target bluefish and spanish mackerel with species like red drum, striped bass and cobia sometimes available in certain seasons when the conditions are right.
We want to invite you to spend an enjoyable day offshore or inshore fishing aboard Harper's Folly. Everything will be considered and pre-arranged before you arrive. Allow our professional team to make your vacation a fishing experience of a lifetime.
Offshore sport fishing with highly experienced Capt. Tom Harper aboard Harper's Folly operating out of Teach's Lair Marina in Hatteras Village has been a part of the Cape Hatteras tradition for many years. Capt. Harper is USCG Licensed and has been fishing out of Hatteras for 32 years. He is also a founding member of NC Watermen United.
In his second season as the First Mate on Harper's Folly, Aaron Stewart grew up hunting and fishing. He admits nothing gets his blood pumping faster than hearing the line scream off a customer's reel when hooked into a big wahoo or mahi. Aaron's goal is to provide each customer with a fish catching experience that will make you fall in love with Hatteras fishing as well.
