It has been a slow fishing day here at Hatteras Harbor. Inshore and near shore anglers had fun with the Bluefish this morning. Some groups went clamming. This afternoon brought more Bluefish along with some "keeper" Red Drum. Anglers who ventured offshore reported rough conditions this morning along with slow fishing. A few Wahoo and scattered Dolphin was the main catch for today. Anglers returned with high spirits and good attitudes for a great day on the water!

Inshore anglers had a great time catching Bluefish and Red Drum (keepers and releases). Offshore anglers returned with a variety of fish - King Mackerel, gaffer and bailer Dolphin, Wahoo, and Blackfin Tuna. Bottom fishing slowed down due to a strong current. One Sailfish was released. The weather should remain nice throughout the week so don't miss out - call us at 800-676-4939 and book the fishing adventure of your choice.

Sunshine and light wind was the order of the day with lots of boats out fishing. We had another makeup trip out fishing today. A great way to get Offshore on a budget!

Inshore boats were having a great day with Bluefish and Red Drum and Spanish Mackerel.

Our fleet kept busy shuffling anglers out into the Pamlico Sound for inshore fishing charters. A few Flounder were caught and the Drum bite was good today. Several groups enjoyed digging for clams. One boat fished near shore and returned with a good catch of Spanish Mackerel. Lots of charters headed out to the Gulf Stream and today's catch consisted of Dolphin (with some limits), scattered Blackfin Tuna, and scattered King Mackerel. The Wahoo bite was on and some nice sized fish hit the dock this afternoon. Bottom fishing was good for those who headed to the south. Want a way to beat the heat? Go fishing - give us a call at 800-676-4939 and book a trip of your choice!

Despite thunderstorms and heavy rain several of our offshore boats made a run for the Gulf Stream. They made a day of it and returned with fair to good catches of Wahoo. A few Dolphin were caught and bottom fishing was good. Inshore anglers kept busy in the Pamlico Sound catching and releasing Red Drum. Some fished around Hatteras Inlet and returned with good catches of Bluefish. Afternoon charters got into Speckled Trout and Gray Trout. The weekend is shaping up and boats are being booked - don't miss out on a wonderful opportunity to get out on the water and see a different view of our unique village.

Another beautiful Summer day on the island! Today was the day to be in the water or on the water- enjoying the great outdoors. We've been busy here at the marina getting anglers out to the fish. Inshore charters had Red Drum releases, along with good catches of Speckled Trout, Gray Trout, and Bluefish. One young angler released a Striped Bass (Rockfish) which is unusual this far south. The offshore fleet returned with fair to good catches of Dolphin and some good sized Wahoo. Bottom fishing brought in Triggerfish. Don't miss out on the action - give us a call at 800-676-4939 to book a fishing excursion - it's a great way to spend quality time with friends or family!

August came in with abundant sunshine after one of the wettest periods along the East coast. Almost 20" of rain fell in the last 10 days and left some pretty soggy conditions along the island. The sun was certainly welcome today and seemed to lift everyone's spirits. Inshore anglers enjoyed fishing the Pamlico Sound - they fell into some BIG  Drum releases and some Pompano. Otherwise fishing was slower than usual this afternoon. Offshore charters experienced a good Dolphin bite (some gaffers and limits of bailers) along with a few Wahoo. There were several Blue Marlin spotted and one was caught but not from our fleet. We are looking for people to fill a Make-up charter for tomorrow - give us a call at 800-676-4939 if interested.


Eric Beecher of Carlisle, PA: 2 lb. Pompano on Adventure.

Annamarie Pope of Tolland, CT: 52" Red Drum release on Fingeance.
