It is certainly a busy day on the docks with all the activities happening with our 14th annual Day at the Docks celebration. Children and adults alike had a great time learning about our local traditions in the fishing industry. Morning anglers that fished inshore reported good Drum and Speckled Trout catches. A handful of boats fished offshore and returned with good Dolphin (some limits) and Wahoo catches. Blackfin Tuna was scattered today. Today's events end with the "Blessing of the Fleet" - so come on down to the docks and offer your blessings.

Another beautiful day on Hatteras Island led to many people heading out inshore or offshore for an exciting fishing adventure! Folks who fished the Pamlico Sound had a great time catching Drum, Speckled Trout, and Bluefish. One group took to clamming and returned with a limit. The offshore charters reported some rough conditions this morning, but calmer seas this afternoon. Native Son released a Sailfish. Dolphin fishing was good with some limits of bailers. Wahoo fishing was good again today. A couple of Blackfin Tuna were caught. Tomorrow is our annual Day at the Docks celebration, celebrating our local watermen and their trade - both commercial and charter captains and the industry that supports our legacy. Don't miss out on all the fun - bring the whole family - it is educational and enlightening!

Another busy day on the dock! Inshore anglers were excited about returning with limits of Speckled Trout. Drum fishing did not disappoint anyone today as that is still red hot! Several boats fished near shore and reported fair to slow conditions with Spanish Mackerel and Amberjack being caught. The offshore boats had a great day with good Wahoo and Dolphin catches along with some Blackfin Tuna. Gambler released two Sailfish. Good Times and Sea Creature released one Sailfish each. Bottom fish included Vermillion Snapper and Triggerfish. What began as a beautiful morning turned stormy this afternoon just as the boats returned. Lots of lucky anglers today!

What a beautiful day to head offshore. Anglers had to wait patiently for the ocean to calm down and it was worth the wait! Hatteras Blue released one Sailfish and Release released three Sailfish. The Wahoo bite provided a lot of action and anglers returned with excellent catches. Dolphin fishing was good and a few Blackfin Tuna were caught. The morning brought limits of keeper Drum, Speckled Trout, and Bluefish for inshore anglers. This afternoon brought good Drum fishing for everyone fishing the Pamlico Sound. All in all, it was a beautiful day to be out on the water enjoying time with family and friends.

Offshore wind and waves kept the larger boats at the docks today. Inshore the wind and waves were less of an issue and a few boats fished the flats and shallow waters coming up with excellent catches of puppy drum and some bluefish. Looks like the weather will finally five us a break the next few days. Check back tomorrow to see what they brought in!

Bands pushing up from Hurricane Irma made offshore weather too nasty to try with winds over 30mph. Inshore was a better bet and despite gloom and wind anglers returned with good Puppy Drum, Speckled Trout and Gray Trout. We feel for all of those in FL and south dealing with the aftermath of such a huge weather event. Wishing them a speedy recovery!

Nice fall like day with temps in the mid 60's, unfortunately due to strong NNE winds none of the boats fished today. We are looking for the boats to fish about mid week. So check back and see what they catch this week.

North winds brought much cooler temperatures today and anglers were treated to an absolutely beautiful day to be out fishing. Fishing was slower than usual inshore with some Speckled Trout, Gray Trout, and Bluefish caught this morning. Lots of Red Drum were biting for the afternoon anglers.  Several charters went offshore and reported that they experienced a real pretty day! Sea Creature released three Sailfish. Release released two Sailfish and Good Times released one Sailfish. The Wahoo bite was on again today and there were excellent catches thrown on the dock. Some Blackfin Tuna and a few Dolphin made it to the fishbox. Bottom fishing was good.

It was a busy, productive day of fishing out of Hatteras! Inshore anglers had luck with the Red Drum (mostly releases) this morning and again this afternoon. Speckled Trout fishing was good as well. Several groups went out and dug their limit of clams. There will be some good eatin tonight! Offshore charters enjoyed a beautiful day on the water. The Wahoo bite came back strong today. Anglers also experienced pretty good Dolphin and Blackfin Tuna catches. Good fishing for everyone!

Stormy weather kept offshore charters from fishing today. A few inshore charters went out into the Pamlico Sound and caught limits of Puppy Drum and a few Flounder. Hopefully the weather will provide some opportunity to get fishing before this week ends.
