About the Captain – Tony Tillett

Captain Tony TillettCaptain Tony Tillett is part of the Outerbanks legendary sportfishing and boatbuilding Tillett family. Sam, Omie & Tony Tillett collectivley have more than 150 years of sportfishing experience. There’s a saying around the docs at the Oregon Inlet Fishing Center, If you aint’ fishing with a Tillett, then you ain’t fishing”.

At the age of 9, Tony carried his first fishing party to Oregon Inlet for channel bass. By the age of 12, Tony was guiding fishing parties to the inlet himself. In 1962 Tony became a full-time charter captain and this began his legacy with his boat the Carolinian.

Captain Tony TillettMany of the great charter captains in Oregon Inlet as well as around the world were nurtured as mates under Captain Tony Tillett. The Fin Planner is proud to have Tony as our Captain and are thrilled our charter guests will be able to experience such a legend in the fishing industry.
