Giant Red Drum Fishing on the Pamlico Sound

Every Summer, we take a break from our typical Largemouth Bass and Multi species trips and head for the salt water!

This is the ultimate inshore angling experience for big fish! Haulin’ Bass Guide Service offers trophy Red Drum charters on the Pamlico Sound from mid-August through mid September.

We are lucky to have the largest and oldest red drum (Redfish, Channel Bass, Spot tail) within their geographic range (Southeastern U.S.) They enter our waters in August and September for their annual spawning ritual.

These are trophy class fish ranging mostly from 30-60 pounds.   If you enjoy fishing in North Carolina and especially catching big fish, this fishery is a MUST SEE!   We fish Med-Heavy Action Penn Spinning rods coupled with a 4000 series reel spooled with 50 pound braid.   You will be casting big popping corks and topwater baits as well as using cut bait on bottom rigs for these large, aggressive fish.   This is truly world class light tackle fishing!   We offer morning and afternoon trips, but we highly recommend coming in the morning so you will have calmer conditions for popping cork fishing.

Our giant drum trips are 6 hours, and they are offered in the mornings beginning at sunrise and run until lunchtime.   We fish in the mornings to take advantage of the calmer conditions for fishing and to avoid afternoon winds and thunderstorms.   This is not a per person rate. (Max 3 anglers).

What We Provide for Your Trip:  All tackle, equipment, and baits for fishing are provided.   We have ample cooler space with ice for your drinks and snacks as well as separate cooler space with ice for your fish.

Fishing License:  When fishing with Haulin’ Bass Guide Service, you will not need to purchase a license because you are fully covered under Haulin’ Bass Guide Service’s Blanket Coastal Fishing License for charter operators.

What You Need To Bring:  All that you need to bring is sun protection (sunglasses, hat, sunscreen), and appropriate clothing. A light rain jacket is recommended as well as a camera for some great fishing pictures.   All tackle, bait, and ice are provided as well as snacks and water.

Lodging/Where we fish
