Wind was up in Hatteras blowing 25+ for most of the day. All boats stayed at the dock. Weather was chilly in the upper 50's.

No one fished offshore today due to the weather. Several boats fished inshore and got on some good Drum bites. Tomorrow it is supposed to blow even harder from the NW. Check back to see what transpires.

It was quite a chilly morning in Hatteras, but things warmed up as soon as the sun rose. Most of our offshore fleet took charters out to the Gulf Stream for a full day of fishing. The Wahoo bite did not disappoint today and anglers received quite a few citations for ones that weighed over 40 pounds. Dolphin, Blackfin Tuna, and King Mackerel catches were scattered. Three Sailfish were released. Inshore anglers got on the Drum again and brought back some keepers and released those that were over slot.  Inshore trips run in the morning and afternoon in the Pamlico Sound. Sounds like a front will be coming through this evening, so we'll have to wait and see what tomorrow brings.

We received our first taste of cold weather overnight with winds blowing in from the NW making it quite chilly. No one fished offshore as the swell was too big. They have spent today getting ready to head out tomorrow. Inshore anglers had a great day with Puppy Drum and big Drum releases. Looks like if the weather cooperates we'll have most of the fleet out - check back to see what transpires.

Despite overcast skies anglers made it out ot fish today. Inshore trips focused on good Drum fishing. They also got on Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish. The catch offshore was scrappy with a fair catch of Blackfin Tuna along with scattered Dolphin and Wahoo. It was kind of rough today and the eight year old who received the citation below kissed the dock upon her return - even though she stuck with it all day! Way to go!

The majority of the Offshore fleet made it out today! So glad to see after days of sitting at the docks. NW winds made for a bit of a rough ride, however everyone returned with smiles and good  stories to tell. The Wahoo bite was hot with some nice citation size fish. Dolphin, Yellowfin Tuna, and Blackfin Tuna catches were scattered. Three Saulfish were released. The wind is supposed to fall out and we should experience some beautiful Fall weather for the beginning of the week. We have a list started for a Make up charter - if interested please give us a call at 800-676-4939 for more information. The inshore fleet stayed busy getting anglers on Red Drum today.

Hurricane Michael came through last night and for us it was mainly a wind event with some soundside flooding. Winds sustained around 40 mph with gusts as high as 60 mph. There were a few heavy rain squalls and the folks north of us experienced flooding due to the sound being pushed hard north. Our hearts go out to anyone who experienced major damage. Needless to say no one fished today but the fleet is steady preparing to head out tomorrow. Check back tomorrow for the latest fishing news!
