We had one charter head offshore this morning and they returned with a good catch of Triggerfish. They released a Tiger shark as well as numerous Amberjack. Commercial fisherman returned with King Mackerel and a fair catch of Blackfin Tuna. The weather is supposed to warm up beginning the first of the week and hopefully anglers will want to get out to the Gulf Stream to see what's biting!

Despite a northwest wind and very cold conditions, several boats fished offshore. Fishing was pretty scrappy with some Blackfin Tuna, one Dolphin, and some King Mackerel being caught. It was the official start of Duck season today and several groups went out into the Pamlico Sound and reported limits of Pintails, Brant Geese, and Redheads. Wondering what to do on these short days?

Winds turned north today bringing much cooler temperatures. Several charters fished offshore and had a good day catching King Mackerel (live baiting and trolling). One charter departed yesterday and stayed out overnight. They returned ( needless to say a bit tired!) with a limit of King Mackerel, a nice catch of Blackfin Tuna, a Dolphin, a Wahoo, Triggerfish, and Black Sea Bass.
