Our inshore fleet stayed busy again today. Catches of Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, and keeper Drum kept parties reeling all day. Clamming trips and shelling trips made for some "happy campers" returning to the dock with some nice finds along with all the clams one can eat! One boat fished near shore this morning and returned with good catches of Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel. Hatteras Fever II and Lucky Chip released Sailfish offshore today. The Wahoo bite wasn't as good as yesterday, however some anglers lucked out with nice sized catches. Dolphin and Blackfin Tuna were mixed into the daily catch. The only way to catch a fish is to head out and wet a line. Give us a call 800-676-4939 and we'll hook you up!

Unsettled weather kept most boats at the dock this morning. Several charters ventured offshore and returned early in the afternoon due to rough seas. They reported a fair to good Wahoo bite, some gaffer and bailer Dolphin, and a few Blackfin Tuna. Inshore charters braved choppy conditions in the Pamlico Sound. They experienced a fairly good Red Drum bite. Speckled Trout catches were good.

Our fleet was booked up again today, however fishing conditions were much slower than usual. Inshore anglers released several over slot Red Drum and one party caught a limit of Puppy Drum. Near shore anglers had better luck with Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Bluefish, and one keeper Drum (although a school of Drum were spotted just off the beach). Offshore, Hatteras Fever released a Sailfish. A few Dolphin and Wahoo were caught. Triggerfish were caught above the wrecks.

It's been an exceptionally beautiful late summer day! Carolina blue skies and slick calm waters are made for fishing enthusiasts! Fishing in the Pamlico Sound brought about Speckled Trout, Gray Trout, and Red Drum. The afternoon catch consisted of Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel. Don't forget that they can take you clamming or sight-seeing as well. Offshore, Native Son released a Sailfish and Brother's Pride released a Blue Marlin. Wahoo fishing was fair to good today. The Blackfin Tuna bite was fair and a few gaffer Dolphin were caught. Some boats targeted King Mackerel and Spanish Mackerel on the way in. We need 4-5 people for a Make up charter for tomorrow. Please call 800-676-4939 if interested.
