A Southwest wind blew in today and put a damper on the fishing. Inshore boats experienced good Red Drum (citations and keepers) despite choppy conditions in the Pamlico Sound. Some Cobia were caught and clamming was excellent. There are many activities to take advantage of when boating in the Sound. The fishing offshore was variable with some boats returning with fair to good catches of Dolphin. Bottom fishing included Triggerfish. One White Marlin was released. Summer is in full swing - don't miss out - book a charter of your choice, call us at 800-676-4939 and we'll hook you up!

Heavy rain squalls and thunderstorms kept offshore charters at the dock again today. As all boats were booked this was a real bummer. Inshore charters filled up fast with no one fishing offshore.

Rainy days can be fun when you pick the right activities.

The one thing you can say about most anglers is that inclement weather doesn't hinder their effort to get on the fish. Inshore charters had fair catches of Speckled Trout. It was a chilly, rainy day offshore and fishing was on the slow side. They returned with fair catches of Dolphin and Blackfin Tuna. The Wahoo bite was scattered. A few King Mackerel made it to the fish box. One Blue Marlin, one White Marlin, and one Sailfish were released by our fleet.
