A few boats headed out today to catch King Mackerel commercially, they had a pretty good day. They were trolling with both live and dead baits. So if King Mackerel is for you, now would be a good time to come and fish. If you have questions about a trip you have booked or would like to book next year give us a call at 1-800-676-4939.

We are experiencing tremendous rainfall amounts and are under a flash flood advisory today. Duck hunters went out and had a great day with Pintail, Red Head, Bufflehead, Brant, and Scoter - something to be said about "It's good weather for ducks". They returned early because of heavy rains and low visibility. Big seas kept offshore boats at the dock.
Friday, December 14, 2018
We had overcast skies along with much warmer temperatures today. No boats fished, but we had some hunting guides getting set up to take hunters out into Pamlico Sound for waterfowl charters. We are forecast to receive heavy rainfall from this evening into the day tomorrow. Be safe and keep dry!

We finally had a few boats to fish offshore after 5 days of big seas and high winds. Most were commercial fishing and the King Mackerel bite was on! One charter went after Tuna but did not prevail. Hopefully the weather will let up so they can continue, although more rain is forecast for the weekend.

We had two charters go out today and they experienced a good King Mackerel bite and one Wahoo was caught. It is cold and raw here but we did get our annual Christmas Parade in without any rain. A coastal storm is upon us and we can look for high wind from the NE with rain and possibly snow the rest of the weekend. Stay safe!

Several boats went out commercial fishing for King Mackerel today. One charter fished and they returned with a Blackfin Tuna and some King Mackerel. A coastal storm is forecast for later this weekend and will probably affect fishing conditions. Keep in touch!

We had a handful of boats head out to the Gulf Stream today. The weather was fairly mild, although overcast with rain showers later in the afternoon. They experienced a good Blackfin Tuna bite and they went live baiting for King Mackerel. Some nice big fish were thrown on the dock! A Wahoo was reported by a private boat. December is here and it's only 24 days until Christmas - we have lots of gift ideas in our Ship's Store - stop by and find something for that special someone!

It's hard to believe that December begins tomorrow. Inshore Captains have been busy with maintenance as the Drum and Speckled Trout have moved out into the surf. Several of our Captains run Duck Hunting Guide Services during the colder weather when in season. Several offshore boats headed out to commercial fish and one took a charter. They had a good King Mackerel bite and one Tuna was reported - hopefully the Tuna bite will pick up!

We did have a few boats out commercial fishing for King Mackerel today. We had abundant sunshine along with some of the coldest temperatures yet - at least the wind stopped blowing! Tomorrow the wind will turn SW and bring some warmer weather so maybe some charters can get out and go for some Tuna!

Another day of high winds and cold rain. Doesn't seem to be a great day on the horizon, but Hatteras weather does it's own thing sometimes. Check back tomorrow to see if things improved.
Saturday, November 24, 2018
South winds brought some warmer temperatures, but it is blowing a gale with gusts up to 38 mph or higher. Needless to say all boats stayed docked today. NC 12 is covered with sand from Frisco to Hatteras - be careful out there!
Friday, November 23, 2018
Cold winds from the NE kept everybody in again today. Tomorrow's forecast promises rainy conditions but warmer. Check back to see if anyone gets out!

The wind let up enough today to allow a handful of charters to fish offshore - finally! Despite chilly temperatures, it was a beautiful day to fish the Gulf Stream and the fish cooperated. Anglers returned with scattered Blackfin Tuna (nice size, check out the citations) and King Mackerel. The Dolphin bite was scattered with gaffers being the exception. The weather forecast for Thanksgiving week seems like it will cooperate for the fishing crowd - don't miss out! Add fresh fish to your holiday menu - it makes a wonderful addition.

A strong West wind and 9 - 12 ft. seas kept everyone on shore once again. Several boats are preparing to fish tomorrow, so check back to see transpires.
