Finally, the weather cooperated and we happened to have some fishing patrons today - what a surprise! Charters that headed north got on a nice catch of Yellowfin Tuna. One charter went out jigging and boated a nice catch of Blackfin Tuna. The Tuna bite should be picking up, working around the weather is another story altogether - but we'll do our best to get you out!

Weather continues to keep boats at the docks. High of 40 today which is quite the drop from the 60's a few days ago. Some hardy duck hunters have been out in the sound. They have been having slow to fair days depending on the weather. Hoping for better weather soon.

It has been quite some time since we've had people out on the water - the weather does not want to let up! Despite cold temperatures, we had two charters that went offshore today. It was still a little rough and the Shark action was the most prevalent bite. They headed in closer to nearshore and enjoyed a day o day of releasing big Red Drum and had some luck with King Mackerel as well. Several commercial boats went out, but lack of live bait and the active Shark activity made it difficult. We will be closing 12/23/2019 through 1/1/2020 for the holidays - be sure to get in for your last minute Christmas shopping!
Jones Farley of Marlton, NJ: Red Drum release on Good Times.
Tricia Lattanza of Forked River, NJ: Red Drum release on Good Times.

The wind fell out somewhat last night and one boat fished offshore today - finally! Heavy rain and a big swell sent them back early with a nice catch of King Mackerel. It is opening day of Duck season and the weather certainly fit the bill (no pun intended). Those trips run daily (except Sunday). There are many activities in Hatteras to take place during Winter and the weather fluctuates between mild days and blow days, so plan a trip for the upcoming holidays. Hopefully we'll be able to get out to the Tuna soon. In the meantime stop by the Ship's Store and mark those names off your list. Our end of the year SALE ends at the end of the year - come by and take advantage of our prices.

The weather has been keeping everyone at the dock for the most part of December. Maybe we'll get a break soon! In the meantime stop by the Ship's Store for our great end of the year SALE! Pick up a few odds and ends for last minute Christmas gifts.

We had one charter head offshore this morning. They went "live baiting" for King Mackerel and boated some nice size Kings. They reported cold conditions, however, the fishing action kept them busy and warm! Highway 12 is underwater during periods of high tide due to a big ocean swell in Avon and Rodanthe. Stay safe out there and remember that water approaching from the east IS salt water!
Madison Ferguson of Vale, NC: 31 lb. King Mackerel on Predator.
Mason Fow of Canton, NC: 34 lb. King Mackerel on Predator.
Meredith Ferguson of Vale, NC: 41 lb. King Mackerel on Predator.

We hope that everyone had a wonderful feast for Thanksgiving. It's that time of the year to be grateful for everything and everybody! A blustery North wind blew in last night bringing cold temperatures and big seas. No one fished Wednesday through today. Let's hope the weekend brings milder conditions so that charters can resume. In the meantime - enjoy leftovers from your feast - you can add fish to your Christmas festivities!

A handful of charters decided to take advantage of the warmer temperatures to head out to the Gulf Stream. They had pretty good King Mackerel fishing in the east. Some bottom fished for Black Sea Bass and Triggerfish. Our first Bluefin Tuna of the season was caught today. Congratulations Tuna Duck! Looks like it's turning into Tuna season. Don't miss out, give us a call at 800-676-4939 and we'll hook you up.

NC 12 has reopened and things are getting back to normal. We had one boat fish offshore today live-baiting for King Mackerel. Rain is forecast for tomorrow and again next week. It's not too late to book a charter as fresh fish makes a nice addition to your Thanksgiving feast. Bring the whole family and make it a family affair. Fall is a great time to visit Hatteras!
Jackson Brown of Kannapolis, NC: 35 lb. King Mackerel on Release.

Blustery NW winds brought in some of the coldest air we've experienced in quite a while. Needless to say, no one left the dock today. A Northeast storm is supposed to follow by week's end - Brrrrrr!
