Despite a morning shower the day was beautiful off the coast of Cape Hatteras today. Offshore boats reported fair fishing with gaffer and bailer dolphin. There were scattered Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna. There were also a few Wahoo on the hook. Deep water and shallow water bottom fishing scored Grouper and Snapper. Hatteras Fever released a White Marlin and Chaser released a Sailfish.

What gorgeous late Spring weather! Once again almost every boat in the marina headed out on the water with groups of anglers fishing inshore or offshore. There continues to be an excellent Spanish Mackerel bite inshore. Bluefish were biting as well. Schools of Red Drum were found and put anglers to the test catching/releasing on small tackle. Inshore boats offer half day or full day trips fishing the Pamlico Sound. The story offshore was a real good Billfish bite! Overall, three Blue Marlin, one White Marlin, and one Sailfish were released by our fleet. Many others were hooked up by other marinas and transient boaters. The Dolphin bite was fair to good, Yellowfin Tuna made a scattered catch, a few Wahoo, and a few King Mackerel leveled out the fish box. The dock was full of happy, sunburned, and tired anglers this afternoon. Our offshore fleet returns between 4 - 5 p.m.. Come on down and see what's thrown on the dock!

Abundant sunshine, cool air from the NE, and everyone in the fleet fishing! A full house went out today and the fishing did not disappoint. Inshore catches consisted of Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, and Bonita Mackerel. All anglers returned with fish in hand and smiles all around. The Dolphin bite picked up again offshore with bailers and gaffers filling up the box. The Blackfin Tuna bite was scattered, showing they're still around. Bottom fishing included Triggerfish and Tilefish. One Blue Marlin was boated by Bite Me.  It weighed in at 596 lbs. and was 124" in length. Three Sailfish were released - one by our own Brothers Pride. Sounds like anglers had an excellent experience wherever they fished!

Anglers fishing the Pamlico Sound today were kept busy catching Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, and Bonita Mackerel. There were several Red Drum releases. Inshore trips run in the morning and again in the afternoon. It is a great way to entertain and educate children of all ages! Fishing was slower offshore today. Anglers got into scattered catches of King Mackerel and Wahoo. The Dolphin bite was scattered, but most boats managed to scrap out a fair catch. Bottom fishing was good with Triggerfish and Tilefish.

Southwest winds did not deter anglers from going out today. Inshore anglers worked the Spanish Mackerel for some nice catches this morning. The afternoon brought good Drum fishing - they are a lot of fun to  catch on light tackle. Abundant sunshine sent many sun kissed, happy faces back to the dock. Our offshore fleet ventured out into the rising sun this morning for a full day of fishing. Fishing was slower than it has been. The Dolphin bite was fair with gaffers being caught. Some nice catches of Triggerfish were brought in as well. One Sailfish was on the hook but was lost. Boats are scheduled to fish again tomorrow, so don't let the week slip by without going out to see what's biting! Give us a call at 800-676-4939 and book the trip of your choice.

The Red Drum bite continues to be good in the Pamlico Sound. Gray Trout and Bluefish put on a good fight today as well.  One boat fished near shore and returned with a good catch of Spanish Mackerel. Fishing slowed down considerately offshore. Dolphin fishing was fair for some anglers and others were not as lucky. A couple of Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna were reeled in and bottom fishing was good with Triggerfish and Tilefish being the main catches. One Blue Marlin was released by Sea Creature. All parties expressed how beautiful a day it was and they certainly hung out all  day in hopes of catching the big one! 

Sea Creature: Bill Bigelow of Friendship, NY released a Blue Marlin.

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.
