It has been an absolutely beautiful Fall day on the island! Inshore anglers returned with a mixed bag this morning. One party returned with Flounder and Sheepshead, another with Red Drim, and one with Speckled Trout and Bluefish. Conditions were much slower this afternoon, but the parties had a great time spending time with friends and family on the water! It's still a bit scrappy offshore - a few Wahoo and Blackfin Tuna were caught. Bottom fishing was pretty good with Triggerfish and Vermillion Snapper. A Blue Marlin and a Sailfish were released.

We were blessed with some beautiful weather today. Inshore the fishing was just as good as you can get - one captain stated that it was a day that you dream about!  Anglers caught limits of Speckled Trout and Red Drum both this morning and afternoon. Check out the pictures along with the smiles - way to go! The fishing offshore was on the slow side. Some Dolphin, Wahoo, and Blackfin Tuna were caught. Bottom fishing was good. Some Sailfish and one Mako Shark were seen -even on slower days there is a lot to see when you travel offshore. Don't miss out on a wonderful opportunity to get out and explore the waters of North Carolina. Give us a call at 800-676-4949 to book your fishing adventure.
