Another gorgeous day to be out on the water. Once again our fleet stayed busy all day sporting anglers out to the fish! This morning brought good catches of Spanish Mackerel in the Pamlico Sound. The afternoon anglers located big schools of citation Drum, caught some Puppy Drum, and topped that off with a nice catch of Bluefish. Offshore anglers kept busy catching limits of Dolphin. The Blackfin Tuna bite was fair and bottom fishing produced Tilefish and Grouper. Two Blue Marlin were caught on the last day of the Big Rock Tournament by Hatteras Fever II. One was released and one was boated. We are currently waiting on the results of the weigh-in at Morehead City. Check out their live webcam on their website.

The fleet was booked again for another beautiful Spring day of fishing. Inshore anglers had an epic day fishing for Spanish Mackerel. We had quite a few family groups that took the youngsters along and they all returned with great catches, full of excitement. The Billfish bite came on good offshore. Our offshore fleet released two Blue Marlin, two White Marlin, and five Sailfish. Way to get on the fish guys! The dolphin bite continues to produce some great catches. Blackfin Tuna fishing improved and helped to vary the catch. Add to that Triggerfish and Tilefish to grill on the BBQ and there will be a taste sensation for everyone! Tomorrow is supposed to be even better weather and our fleet will be busy again. Don't miss out on all the fun - give us a call at 800-676-4939 and we'll hook you up with a fishing experience of your choice.

It has been a fisherman's paradise in Hatteras. Every boat except for the ones that took a lay day for the Big Rock tournament fished out of Hatteras Harbor today. Inshore anglers experienced a good Bluefish bite. A few Spanish Mackerel were caught in the Pamlico Sound. One boat fished near shore and kept a couple of young ladies hopping on a good Spanish bite! Check out their picture. The Dolphin bite did not disappoint offshore anglers and most charters returned with limits. The King Mackerel bite was scattered. It was a pretty sight with all the empty slips during the day and boats docking this afternoon with happy anglers and their ample catches. The Billfish bite slowed down quite a bit today. To see the latest results of the Big Rock, check out the Big Rock website along with the live webcam.

Our inshore fleet was out and about today in the Pamlico Sound catching Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish this morning. The afternoon was spent battling Cobia. Inshore trips run half day charters and are a great way to introduce young anglers the ins and outs of fishing, plus it is enjoyable for everyone. One boat fished near shore and they were successful with Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, and Amberjack. Several boats fished offshore and they reported some squally conditions out at sea. The Dolphin bite was excellent  today and boats returned with limits of mostly bailers. Bite Me released a White Marlin. The Big Rock tournament is underway and you can get the latest results on their website. Don't forget to check it out!


Josh Spicer of Julian, PA: 74" White Marlin release on Bite Me.

Billy Mills of Spotsylvania, VA caught a 73lb Cobia on Fingeance

Morning started out a little cool but fair, late afternoon however was a different story. Unexpected storms moved in with downpours and lightning. Boats headed in early and the afternoon Inshore trips were scrapped for the day and most moved dates to a hopefully better weather day. Our Offshore fleet did make a day of it with boats bringing in a lot of bailer(smaller) Dolphin with a few gaffers (larger) mixed in. Some boats had a really excellent catch of Blackfin Tuna. The makeup trip was pleased with their catch on Native Son.
