OBX Crabbing and Shrimping Charters

Capt. Marc Mitchum is part of a fishing family here on the Outer Banks. Come aboard his boat, the Jodie Kae, for a fun, hands-on and educational trip. Catch your own shrimp and crabs to take home, steam up and enjoy for dinner. 

Two hour tours and four hour tours are available. Bring your drinks, some snacks and some sunscreen. And, a cooler...to haul your catch back home. Charters consist of pulling a trawl net for shrimp and/or fishing crab pots for crabs. Both activities provide a very hands-on experience; you and your family will be catching, sorting, and directly interacting with all of the marine life you encounter!  Trips start Memorial Day weekend. Present your Village VIP card (the actual card or the photo of the card on your phone app) and one person in your party (you choose) gets a t-shirt. 

  • How much can we expect to catch? We usually have a good catch of crabs on our trips; shrimping, however, is far less predictable, and the catch will vary depending on both season and time of day.

  • What is the difference between the 2 hour trip & the 4 hour trip? In short, the 4-hour trip means more time on the water, and therefore more catch. Some parties have been concerned that their younger children may become bored on the longer trip, but this has yet to occur. There is plenty of activity to keep everyone's interest for the duration of the 4 hour trip, but the 2 hour trip is available for those who prefer it.

  • Where will we fish? Charters take place exclusively in the calm waters of the Roanoke Sound. We do not enter the ocean at all.

  • Who is Captain Marc Mitchum? Captain Marc Mitchum is a full-time waterman with over 30 years of experience fishing from the Gulf Stream to the sounds and estuaries surrounding Roanoke Island on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

  • What about the Jodie Kae? The Jodie Kae is a 42' custom-built dead-rise work boat with a 430 horsepower Cummins diesel. She is outfitted with an enclosed toilet and shaded awning for your convenience.
