Weather continues to be hot and beautiful. Almost all of our boats are booked for tomorrow so it looks to be a banner day. Inshore boats were not running today but Offshore boats were hitting the water. Several fished Offshore and found great catches of Dolphin and some large Wahoo as well as a few Blackfin Tuna and decent Triggerfish.

Another slick calm day to be out on the water. Inshore parties had a good Bluefish bite as well as good Red Drum fishing. Offshore parties reported beautiful weather conditions, unfortunately the catches were not as plentiful as yesterday. Two Sailfish were released. Some Dolphin were caught along with a few Blackfin Tuna and Wahoo. Bottom fishing produced catches of Triggerfish, Vermillion Snapper, and Black Sea Bass. Our belief in Hatteras is that fishing is always good, the catching varies. The weather is supposed to be beautiful again tomorrow, so we'll head out to see what a new day brings.

Another beautiful September day for fishing! Inshore anglers continue to do well with the Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel. One group went clamming and had a great time splashing around in the Pamlico Sound keeping wet and gathering a limit of clams. Offshore anglers experienced excellent Dolphin fishing along with scattered Wahoo. The Blackfin Tuna bite was fair to good depending in which direction the Captain went. Two Blue Marlin were released and even more of them were seen.

Inshore anglers were treated to quite a smorgasbord today. Spanish Mackerel, small King Mackerel, Bluefish, and Albacore kept them busy this morning as well as this afternoon. One boat took a party near shore this morning and go into a Bluefish blitz - check out their catch! Offshore captains reported a good catch with gaffer Dolphin, a good Blackfin Tuna bite, and a few Wahoo. One Sailfish was released and more were seen. It was a gorgeous day with birds on everything - the ocean is alive!

More blue skies and very hot temps. Offshore fishing was on the slower side with good Dolphin catches and a few Blackfin Tuna. Sailfish made a showing today with Hatteras Blue releasing and Sea Creature releasing 1. There were also Sea Bass and Triggerfish being caught. Inshore large schools of Red Drum were wearing our anglers out. Bluefish continue to be thick as well.

Summer might be winding down but it certainly didn't look that way in Hatteras today. Blue skies calm seas and some HOT weather were the forecast today. Offshore boats had excellent catches of Dolphin with some boats catching limits. There were a few Triggerfish and Snapper mixed in. Inshore boats were skimming along some mirror waters and catching excellent Red Drum and Bluefish.

Saturday, September 01, 2018

What a beautiful day to begin the month of September! Anglers took advantage of the weather to get out onto the water. Inshore anglers continue to experience a good Bluefish bite. They got on some Red Drum this afternoon. Clamming was a real treat as they got to get wet as they dug in the sand flats. The Dolphin bite was on offshore and some parties returned with limits. The Blackfin Tuna bite picked up a bit today. Bottom fishing was good with Triggerfish, Vermillion Snapper, Silver Snapper, and Black Sea Bass. The weather should hold out for the long weekend - don't miss out - give us a call at 800-676-4939 to book your fishing excursion.

It's hard to believe that August has come and gone. The heat index today was extremely high and the best place to be was in the water. Inshore anglers enjoyed a good Bluefish bite this morning and even returned with a Black Sea Bass caught in the Pamlico Sound. Afternoon anglers got on Red Drum (releases). Our offshore captains reported spectacular fishing, but catching was another story. There was a fair Wahoo bite, along with a few Dolphin and Blackfin Tuna. Bottom fishing was good with Triggerfish, Grouper, and Gray Trout. One Sailfish was released. Have a safe weekend!
