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.

Happy Flag Day! Our flag was flapping most of the day with a strong west wind. We had a lot of offshore charters on the book this morning, however, most captains did not fish due to the weather. One charter made it out and got on a decent school of Dolphin bringing back a fair catch. One Wahoo was caught. The Big Rock Tournament boats went out after two "lay days" and you can see the results on their website. Predator is on the way to Morehead with one large Yellowfin Tuna to be weighed. Check us out again tomorrow as all boats are booked. One White Marlin was released. Our inshore guys stayed busy fishing the Pamlico Sound. The catch today consisted of Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, and Speckled Trout. Give us a call at 800-676-4939 to book the charter of your choice.

Today was overcast and cloudy with some rain showers, however, it did not deter anglers from heading out on the water. Inshore anglers enjoyed a day of catching Spanish Mackerel, Gray Trout, Speckled Trout, and Cobia. Inshore charters offer fishing, clamming, shelling, or sightseeing tours. All of our offshore fleet (except one) headed out to the Gulf Stream this morning for a full day of fishing. The Dolphin bite continues to be excellent.

Two Blue Marlin and one Sailfish were released. They are forecasting heavy rain for areas of the Southeast this weekend - we'll have to see how that affects the charters. Fish don't mind getting wet!
