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!

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!

It feels like November all of a sudden with colder weather on the way. Sounds like Tuna weather is just around the corner. Inshore boats did not fish today. It was slow fishing offshore although they managed to get on a few good bites. Some charters went live baiting for King Mackerel. Others found a few schools of Dolphin (bailers and gaffers). A few nice class Wahoo and Blackfin Tuna were brought to the fish box. One Sailfish was released. Thanksgiving is on the way - get on a charter and experience the bounty of the sea along with your feast!

October sure is going out in late Summer style! What a beautiful day to be on the island. There were no charters inshore today. Fishing conditions were pretty slow offshore overall. Charters managed to scrap out catches with a few Wahoo and gaffer Dolphin. Bottom fishing brought in some Vermillion Snapper and Triggerfish. Live baiting for King Mackerel produced good results.

Another gorgeous day for October - temperatures in the 70s, abundant sunshine and a Carolina blue sky made for a perfect day to be outside! Speckled Trout continue to put on a good bite for inshore anglers. They found some Red Drum (mostly over-slot along with a few keepers). One boat ventured outside the inlet and got on some King Mackerel. The Billfish bite was good offshore with three Sailfish releases and one Blue Marlin release. Anglers experienced a good Wahoo bite again today, along with some Dolphin and Yellowfin Tuna. Bottom fishing was good with Triggerfish being caught. Some began the day by Live baiting for King Mackerel. Don't let Autumn pass by without a fishing adventure - call us at 800-676-4939 to book your charter!

The weather has been absolutely gorgeous today! Anglers took advantage to get out to the fish. Inshore charters concentrated on Bluefish and Speckled Trout. Inshore charters run 1/2 day trips from 7:00 am to 11:30 am and 12:30 pm to 5 pm. It's an excellent way to get young anglers out without wearing them out! Offshore boats were live baiting for King Mackerel and returned with good catches. The Wahoo bite was good along with some Yellowfin Tuna. A few Dolphin made it into the fish box. Four Sailfish were released. We would like to wish a fond farewell to Lucky Chip - good luck in your new home up the beach!
