Anglers had a great day of fishing whether inshore or offshore. Southerly winds and the warmest temperature yet this Spring, made for a wonderful day to be out on the water! Fishing was good all around today and boxes were full of good catches of Blackfin Tuna, Dolphin (gaffers), King Mackerel, and Wahoo from our offshore fleet. Bottom fishing was good today as well with big Black Sea Bass and Vermillion Snapper. Inshore anglers have their hands full with big Bluefish and some big Red Drum releases. We're hoping that this beautiful weather and the good fishing continues.

What began as a overcast morning turned into a beautiful day to be out fishing. The wind fell out and abundant sunshine led to good fishing conditions offshore. The Blackfin Tuna bite provided a lot of action and charters returned with all they wanted! Gaffer size Dolphin produced a good bite and helped to fill the box. A few Wahoo showed up today as well. Big Bluefish were caught by inshore anglers. The weather for this weekend sounds like summer time temps with an excellent chance of getting out to fish!

Anyone in Hatteras today can tell you it was quite the storm front that passed through this morning. Rain poured and the sky was lit up between crashing thunder. Our weather station says .92" rain and 45 lightning strikes this morning now it is 71 degrees with winds at 2MPH. Late afternoon the skies cleared to beautiful blue and sunshine and no wind the harbor and sound are mirror smooth right now. Seems mother nature needed a nap after all that fury. No boats out this morning, one inshore boat left late afternoon to try and get a little fishing in we hope they catch 'em up!

Sunday, April 23, 2017

Overcast, windy and a little cooler today,  temperature stayed in the low 60's. Couple charters faced the wind and headed offshore for a full day of fishing. They returned to the dock with good catches of Blackfin Tuna and a few Dolphin.

The wind (East 15 - 20 kts) kept the inshore anglers at the dock.

Happy Earth Day! Abundant sunshine made for a perfect Spring day, but southwest winds kept offshore boats docked today. A few inshore boats went out and caught some really big Bluefish and a limit of keeper Puppy Drum both this morning and this afternoon.

Friday, April 21, 2017

Another beautiful day to be on Hatteras Island! Inshore anglers enjoyed fishing the Pamlico Sound and returned with nice catches of big Bluefish and big Red Drum releases. Some Cobia were caught and schools of Black Drum were spotted. Inshore charters run morning (7-11:30) and afternoon (12:30-5) trips. Offshore anglers experienced excellent Dolphin fishing with limits of bailers and some gaffers. The Blackfin Tuna bite continues to be good. Offshore charters are all day (6-5) and offer some of the best Gulf Stream fishing around! We also set up Make up charters @ $280 for each angler. We are currently looking for several people to fill a Make up charter for Sunday or Monday. Give us a call 800-676-4939 and we'll hook you up!

There was quite a bit of activity on the dock today as many people took advantage of this beautiful Spring day to get out on the water. Inshore anglers fished this morning and afternoon and reported large Red Drum releases and good Bluefish catches. Offshore anglers reported much better fishing conditions than earlier this week. Some boats returned early with full boxes of Blackfin Tuna. Overall, the Blackfin Tuna bite was excellent and the Dolphin bite picked up to the south and those anglers returned with an excellent catch.

The Bluefish bite was strong again today for inshore anglers. One boat fished offshore and reported choppy conditions along with a good Blackfin Tuna bite. Several charters are scheduled for tomorrow - inshore and offshore - so check back to see what's happening out on the water!

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Wind was blowing North East at 18-22MPH. This kept the charter boats at the dock but a couple of the Inshore guys were able to head out for the morning session. They returned with large class Bluefish in good numbers. The forecast looks like the wind may be pushing us around for a few days. In the meantime we can get you booked for a day when hopefully the weather is more suitable so give us a call. Our on site Deli is now open for the season Mon-Sat from 11AM-3PM.
