Welcome to the home of Doghouse Sportfishing on the web.


Doghouse sport fishing is one of the top boats for outer banks fishing charters out of the Oregon inlet. The Doghouse is a 61 foot, custom Carolina boat. My wife and I were the contractors, and we have included some pictures of the boat being built. It was a 17 month labor of love. We built the boat to be an inspected vessel, which means we can carry more than the standard 6 passengers. Our boat is inspected to carry 24 passengers. We do not operate as a head boat, which means that we do not charge per person. The boat is yours for the duration of your charter. She is a United States Coast Guard Inspected Vessel. We are certified to carry 24 passengers and with a 17 foot cockpit and a 17 foot salon, we have ample room for everyone.

For deep sea fishing outer banks the boat has all the amenities of home. It is very spacious, and has ample room for our large groups. We have two central heat, and air condition units which keep you warm, or cold, depending on the season you fish with us. We have plenty of seating in the cockpit, on the bridge, and in the salon.

In a nutshell, the boat is one of the cleanest, most comfortable, rides your hard-earned dollars can charter. The boat is big, extremely well-built, and has all of the comforts of home. The boat has twin motors, the latest in technology, and the best tackle money can buy. Corporate groups, large family groups, wedding parties, and groups of friends all utilize the services we provide. Come join us for a great day of outer banks charter fishing.

    I thought teaching her to play Rummy would help pass some time, when she felt up to it. Dumb idea. 15 straight hands looked like this. 2 draws, and she crushed me. Again. A bad day, yesterday, but she pulled out of the dive last night. A good night's sleep, and a good nap. Two straight days of 0 ANC. Yesterday p.m. showed some growth. Only 12, but something. 24, this a.m. a target of 500, before discharge, but you have to start somewhere. Sitting back, letting Him do His thing. He is Able.

    Louis, and his crew came to try their hand this past weekend. Only two of us made it out, and we couldn't get on much. Lots of fish, deep, but they weren't biting. The weather calmed down Monday, and they went to nibbling. Spelled mama, and I'm back with Baby Girl. She was feeling better yesterday, and wore my butt out playing rummy. Playing the waiting game. Thank you all for keeping her, and us, lifted up.

    Sometimes He just gives you those days. Baby girl received her stem cells, yesterday. Mama made it back up, and we passed the baton. I got home in time to visit with the boys. A long-time customer, and good friend, Jim Rowe was on the book for today, and what a day he had. We caught a keeper, setting out, then a nice yellowfin, out of a few bites, and we landed our trophy fish, for the year, in the bottom of the ninth. Thank you, all, for the prayers, and messages.

    I'm sorry I have been unavailable, and have not thanked everyone who has contacted us, and have been petitioning Him, on our behalf. Thank you. Audra, and I, checked Boo into CHKD last Wed to finish the final leg. She had already gone through 4 cycles of treatment, and Wednesday began her 7 day, consecutive, period of chemo, leading up to her stem cell transplant, tomorrow, GLW. Her attitude is great, but the cumulative effects of so much chemo are catching up with her.
    The hospital is an incredible place that shows no bias in race, gender, or socio-economic status. The level of care, and the attitude of the entire staff, from custodians, to Dr.'s, is unparalleled we could never begin to thank this facility, enough.
    Many have shown a concern about my relationship. God, and I were wrestling, but He won. We have come too far to turn back, now. We possibly have 3 more weeks in the hospital, and 100 days of reduced contact with others, and Boo's natural environment: horses, chickens, a pig, dirt, and dog.
    My wife consistently says "it is only a season".
    Boo is afforded some great conversations with the nurses, about the fact that she only has one more semester, before she puts the RN name tag on. She will have an incredible testimony.
    I thank Caine for covering the days I am up here. Audra, and I, trade back out, tomorrow. The rock star moves back into the game. My girls are rocks, and us boys are going to be glad to have them back home. He is still in the business, and He does not slumber.

    When He asks you to have just a little Faith, sometimes it is easier said, than done. A failure by Nat Geo, and production to negotiate a fair deal, after 5 years of carrying the water, a blown motor, clutch, a problem with the new motor, a wrecked paint schedule, and a little knot that made every bit of that seem like nothing, and bring me to my knees.
    One semester away from being the best R.N., ever, and Baby Girl is fighting, again. Things don't seem to matter, when your sunshine is sick, and the heaviness of it makes your heart hurt.
    I didn't feel like praying, and I didn't feel like reading my bible one morning, but I did. I was angry, and I couldn't get past the "why", of it all.
    I didn't want to read about David, and Goliath, but I did.
    The fear was there, and the doubt was there, but David's Faith is what defined him. After rebuking the giant, David RAN to meet the battle. We can't run it for you, Baby Girl, but I promise we're running with you. I can't even imagine what giant plans He has for you. I love you.

    Its ok to be frustrated and even angry with God sometimes. He knows we dont understand His timing and why He allows these trials in our lives. But He is compassionate to us in our weaknesses. God knew WAY before today what your trials would be and how your heart would ache. It has come as no surprise to Him. Your steps are ordered and he knew you before you were ever born. He PROMISES us a way to get safely to the other side of these storms and trials. We HAVE to trust His heart even when we cant understand, even when we are discouraged. Know this, THOUSANDS of us will be lifting you, your precious daughter, and family. You are not alone, and will never be. God be with you and remember HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT !
