Welcome to WaterDog Guide Service! Serving all of the Crystal Coast (from Beaufort and Morehead City to Atlantic Beach, Pine Knoll Shores and Emerald Isle), Captain Tom Roller specializes in light-tackle and fly-fishing charters.

Even today, North Carolina saltwater fishing is often synonymous with big-game, Gulf Stream fishing. However, many anglers are now discovering the exciting and less expensive alternative to off-shore fishing. In protected waters and within sight of land, the miles of undeveloped barrier islands, winding tidal marshes and three local inlets offer countless opportunities for fisherman to tangle with dozens of species. From flounder and false albacore to mahi-mahi and amberjacks – we do it all. Anglers, fly-casters and children of all experience levels are welcomed!

A Coast Guard licensed captain, Tom Roller has been fishing the waters of Bogue Banks and Cape Lookout his entire life. With a lifetime of experience under his belt, Captain Tom has a wealth of fisheries knowledge that makes for both an exciting and educational fishing experience. WaterDog also has the best arsenal of boats and equipment to fully take advantage of all aspects of inshore North Carolina fishing. The main boat, a dry, stable and smooth-riding Parker 23' Deep-Vee, is equipped with the latest electronics and equipment to provide comfortable charters in all conditions. In addition, Capt. Tom has a shallow-draft Jones Brothers Bateau that he employs for true shallow water fising. To see pictures and learn more about our boats and what they offer - visit the BOAT PAGE

At WaterDog Guide Service, I use my knowledge and experience (as well as hard work!) to provide you with the best charter possible. Hiring a guide is a learning experience – and when a customer hires me, I do my best to share with them my knowledge and love of the water. But remember, this is your trip – so let me know what type of fishing you want to do!
