It has been a stormy day on Hatteras Island. Inshore boats fished this morning, however, the bite was extremely slow. No one fished this afternoon because of the weather. Offshore boats went out and most returned early due to numerous lightning strikes and rain squalls. They did manage to get excellent catches of Dolphin before having to head in - not bad for about a half to a three-quarter day of fishing. One Sailfish was released. The weather is iffy for tomorrow - check back to see what transpires.

We had severe thunderstorms roll through last night along with gusty SW winds which kept our offshore fleet from getting out today. Hopefully, it will lay tonight and they will get out to the Gulf Stream tomorrow. Inshore boats were busy catching Bluefish, Sea Mullet, and Speckled Trout. With school being closed for the Summer, we had many family groups fishing the Pamlico Sound. It's a wonderful way to spend quality time together as well as to introduce youngsters to the art of fishing! If interested - give us a call at 800-676-4939 and we'll be glad to hook you up.
