Another good day of fishing out of Hatteras Harbor Marina. Inshore anglers returned with good catches of Bluefish and some "keeper" Red Drum. They also offer clamming excursions and even sight-seeing excursions. There are many ways to have fun while boating in the Pamlico Sound. Anglers who fished offshore experienced a good Billfish bite! Two Blue Marlin, one White Marlin, and four Sailfish were released today, keeping everyone on their toes! The Dolphin bite was not red hot, but many good catches came in. A few Wahoo and Blackfin Tuna helped to produce some variety. It was an extremely hot day all across the south and the best way to beat the heat is to get out and about on the water and have a great time fishing!

Happy 4th of July! Bluefish was on tap for inshore anglers all day. A few Spanish Mackerel and a handful of small Cobia were caught as well. This afternoon one group went out clamming and enjoyed being in the water digging for their dinner - what a great meal for a hot Summer evening! Three Blue Marlin and one Sailfish were released by our offshore fleet. The Dolphin bite continues to be good with some boats returning with limits. A few King Mackerel were caught and bottom fishing was good with Triggerfish, Tilefish, and Grouper. Enjoy the fireworks tonight and be safe!

It was "fun day" Friday here at HHM. Lots of anglers and family groups went out into the Pamlico Sound for a half day of inshore fishing. The morning groups caught Red Drum and Bluefish. Afternoon groups went after Cobia with success. A few Bluefish were biting as well. With the heat index so high, it was a good idea to get out on the water to cool off. Overall, offshore fishing was real good with limits of Dolphin brought in. Bottom fishing provided a good Triggerfish bite. A few King Mackerel hit the lines late this afternoon. Gambler released a Blue Marlin. Hatteras Fever II released a White Marlin. Carolina Girl, Good Times, and Predator released Sailfish. June is almost over - don't let July come and go without a "fun day" of fishing.

Wow, Summer is certainly underway on Hatteras! Once again our fleet kept busy getting anglers out to the fishing grounds. Inshore and near shore groups had a great morning catching Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish. A few Red Drum were targeted and caught as well. A group of anglers went bowfishing this afternoon and they experienced good Sting Ray action in the Pamlico Sound. Two Blue Marlin, one White Marlin, and four Sailfish were released by our offshore fleet. The Dolphin bite was fair to good depending on location. There are so many exciting things to see and do whether you fish inshore, near shore, or offshore. It' a great way to spend time with family or friends and is very educational as well as fun! Don't miss out - come to Hatteras Village and participate in the trip of your choice.

The weather was stormy this morning, but the afternoon brought abundant sunshine and anglers took advantage of the conditions and went out fishing. The morning inshore charters returned with good catches of Bluefish, a few Spanish Mackerel and Puppy Drum, and some Cobia. The afternoon charters went out and raked up on clams. Good eating all around! It was an exciting day for offshore anglers. Two White Marlin and one Sailfish were released! The Dolphin bite was pretty good, so they did return with some meat fish.

Southwest winds and a big sea kept most offshore boats at the dock today. Two boats went out to the Gulf Stream and returned earlier than usual with limits of Dolphin. Release released two White Marlin. Inshore boats that went out this morning returned with good catches of Bluefish, a few Puppy Drum, and a good catch of Spanish Mackerel. Let's hope the wind falls out and fishing will resume as our fleet is booking up for the Summer. Don't miss out - give us a call at 800-676-4939 and we'll hook you up!

The Summer crowd is here and ready to fish! Inshore boats entertained anglers today and got them onto Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, and Red Drum. Some family groups went out (including youngsters) and received some instruction on types of fish, and how to hook and reel in fish. It really is educational and very hands on! Near shore anglers returned with good catches of Spanish Mackerel. Most of our offshore fleet ventured to the Gulf Stream and five Billfish were released today. The Dolphin bite was fair. Add in a few Wahoo and a few Blackfin Tuna for some nice variety. King Mackerel are still hanging around and help to fill the fish box. A Rainbow Runner ( a member of the Jack family) was caught as well.

Spanish Mackerel were plentiful on the soundside this morning and on the ocean side this afternoon. The Bluefish bite was good this morning and sharks were reported at the point in Buxton. Most of our fleet fished offshore and experienced a good Dolphin bite. The Wahoo and Blackfin Tuna bite was scattered. Bottom fishing was pretty good today with Triggerfish, Black Sea Bass, Tilefish, Gag Grouper. Snowy Grouper, and Longfin Basslet. Three billfish were released by very lucky anglers! It was an extremely hot day and anglers reported a slight breeze offshore that made it all better - that's one way to beat the heat!
