East Carolina Charters specializes in North Carolina Duck Hunting. I am Captain Robert Pinner, and I’ve grown up hunting and fishing the waters of North Carolina’s expansive inshore sounds for the last 20 years. I’ve been an avid student of North Carolina’s abundant inshore ecosystem, and I’d love the opportunity to share it with you. Whether you’re looking to land some fish, bag some ducks, or just spend a few hours away from the normal hustle and bustle, I will cater my approach to meet your desires. I enjoy sharing my experiences with new friends. If you’re new to NC waterfowling, new to fishing, or hoping to learn some new techniques or some local “hot spots,” come on. I love sharing my hard-earned knowledge with anxious learners. If I can answer any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Being situated on the coast with large bodies of nutrient- and food-rich waters, North Carolina duck hunting has always been superb. Flocks and flocks of divers and puddle ducks winter in NC during their fall migration. I have worked hard to assemble a team of experienced and skilled guides to help provide you with a waterfowl hunting memory for a lifetime. My team of guides works hard to ensure you make the most of your NC duck hunting trip. We hunt along the coastal region of North Carolina on Currituck Sound, Albemarle Sound, Pamlico Sound, and all their numerous tributaries.
We offer a wide variety of hunting styles. We offer pristine salt marsh duck hunting, duck impoundment hunting, open water duck hunting, layout boat hunting, and more. If there’s a specific species that you would like to target, please let us know. We will do our best to cater our approach to help you harvest it. Often, one particular style may be more effective than others. These success rates are usually due to duck migration patterns, duck food availability, and hunting pressure. I pride our operation on honesty. As your hunt nears, I will be in touch to keep you informed about what to expect and what tactics might need to be employed to produce an effective NC duck hunt.
Our guides offer many trophy duck hunts for species such as canvasback, surf scoter, and tundra swan. Shooting surf scoters from the layout boat is a bucket-list-style hunt that will leave you with fond memories to last a lifetime. As the sun overpowers the dark night and the eastern horizon glows with increasing brightness, the Pamlico Sound launches waterfowl life to action. In the layout boat, you have a center stage, up close and personal seat that leaves even veteran waterfowlers speechless.
