It hard to believe that May has ended. We have been blessed with some beautiful weather and great fishing! Don't let another month go by without getting out on the water to spend time with family and friends. Red Drum fishing was awesome for inshore anglers. The Spanish Mackerel bite was great today as well. This afternoon brought Gray, Trout, Bluefish, and Sea Mullet. Speckled Trout were biting and being released as regulations will not let you keep them yet - it's good to see them showing up though. Dolphin fishing continues to be good with a mix of bailers and gaffers. Some boats got on the Blackfin Tuna bite and were not disappointed. A few Wahoo were thrown in the mix as well. Bottom fishing was fair. One Blue Marlin and one Sailfish (Sundown) were released by our offshore fleet. Anglers enjoyed the good fishing and abundant sunshine. There will be some good eating tonight.

A few boats left the dock for an Offshore trip a couple returned early but most made a day of it with Gaffer Dolphin in good numbers and some bailer Dolphin as well as Blackfin Tuna. Inshore a few Cobia and Sting Rays before it was cut short by rain squalls.

Cobia continue to move through Hatteras Inlet allowing anglers a good chance to hook up a big one. Spanish Mackerel, keeper Red Drum, and Bluefish kept anglers busy all day! It was a beautiful day to be offshore. The Dolphin bite picked up and anglers returned with excellent catches. The Blackfin Tuna bite was on and there were also scattered Yellowfin Tuna. Several nice sized Wahoo made it into the fish box as well. Hatteras Blue released a Blue Marlin. Way to go! Bottom fishing was pretty good as well.

Inshore fishing was the hit today! The Cobia have arrived and they provided a lot of action for eager anglers. Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, and Bluefish filled in during the interim - lots of excited, happy groups returning with fun stories to tell, as well as some good eating. It was scrappy fishing offshore - lots of grass and sharks got in the way. Some gaffer and bailer Dolphin were landed, as well as a few Blackfin Tuna. A nice group of Yellowfin Tuna were located, but the sharks won  that battle. Bottom fishing was good with Triggerfish, Grouper, Silver Snapper, and Tilefish. Our very own Brother's Pride released a Blue Marlin. Way to go guys!!

Another beautiful Spring day on Hatteras Island. Our marina looked quite lonely with everyone out and about on the water entertaining anglers with good catches! This morning inshore anglers caught some Cobia and Drum. The Spanish Mackerel bite was really good. This afternoon Cobia hit hard and anglers got in on the action. Captains and anglers alike were jacked up over "world class Cobia fishing". Offshore, overall fishing was much slower. Two Blue Marlin were released. The Dolphin bite was scattered, although a nice size. A few Tuna were reported. Bottom fishing was good with Triggerfish and Vermillion Snapper. Good weather should hang around for the weekend - don't miss out on the action - give us a call at 800-676-4939 and we'll hook you up!

Cobia began filtering through Hatteras Inlet today and inshore anglers rook advantage of the situation. Some citation Drum were caught as well as sea Mullet, and Bluefish. It was somewhat choppy but anglers made the best of it! The Billfish bite was on offshore and three Blue Marlin and one Sailfish were released by our fleet. The meat fish bite was slower with fair catches of Dolphin and a few Tuna (Blackfin and Yellowfin). Please don't listen to the weather report - the weather has been beautiful and sunny, with little rain. Come on down and enjoy a day of fishing and fun in the sun!
