NC 12 is currently closed due to a breach through the dunes in Rodanthe. In Avon and Buxton high water is flooding the highway. The nor'easter has slowed things to a crawl on the island today. Here in Hatteras there was water in the usual places. High tide tonight and again in the morning will make it difficult to get around. Please remember that it is saltwater and take your time! We had one inshore brave choppy waters in the Pamlico Sound and they got on some Speckled Trout and Bluefish. Our offshore fleet hasn't been out for close to a week - let's hope that this weather pattern will change and we can get out to the Gulf Stream soon.

Today's wind made yesterday feel like a breeze. NE winds and huge seas kept everyone at the dock for yet another day! Gusts as high as 35 mph and seas 8 - 12 ft. (which are supposed at build even more with high tide) have created coastal flooding and road overwash conditions. Be safe out there!

Blustery winds from the northeast kept everyone on shore today. It is forecast to blow for the next couple of days as the front has stalled - not conducive for fishing!
Monday, October 07, 2019
None of the big boats headed offshore today due to the winds, but we did have some of the smaller boats fishing in the sound. They had limits of Speckled Trout and Bluefish, there was also a small cobia released
Sunday, October 06, 2019
Due to winds Offshore none of our boats fished in the Gulfstream. Inshore boats were able to get out and have a great day catching large Speckled Trout in good numbers. There were also a few Bluefish mixed in.

It has been a rather quiet day here at Hatteras Harbor. The offshore fleet was blown out again this morning. The wind has fallen out some, so maybe tomorrow will be a fishable day. No word from the inshore charters this afternoon - hopefully they are busy catching Speckled Trout and Bluefish. Check back for the latest report.

Speckled Trout fishing in the Pamlico Sound has been off the hook this Fall! The Bluefish bite has been good as well. A few Red Drum were caught, although they were not keepers. No one ventured offshore due to gusty NE winds. It is supposed to blow for the next couple of days so we'll just have to wait it out.

There has been a lot of action at the marina today. Inshore anglers experienced an excellent Speckled Trout catch along with some under slot Red Drum. Offshore, the Sailfish bite was quite active today. Congratulations to everyone who received a citation! The Wahoo bite continues to be good. Blackfin Tuna bites are picking up nicely. Bottom fishing brought in Triggerfish. Our day will end with the annual "Blessing of the Fleet" which was cancelled earlier this month due to Hurricane Dorian. We certainly should show gratitude for each and every day we're given. Many blessings to our friends on Orcacoke as they continue to repair their homes and life as they knew it - our hearts go out to you!

Several boats fished near shore and one happened to land a 74 Lb. Wahoo just off the beach - way to go! They also had a scattered King Mackerel bite. One boat bottom fished for Triggerfish, Black Sea Bass, and Vermillion Snapper. Offshore there was an excellent Wahoo bite along with a few Dolphin and scattered Blackfin Tuna. One Sailfish was released. Feel left out? Sign up by calling 800-676-4939 and spend a full day or a half-day with family and friends - good memories are made on fishing expeditions!

Beautiful weather ushers us into Autumn. Anglers took advantage of this to get out on the water. Inshore charters returned with good catches of Speckled Trout and Bluefish. Offshore charters got on a good Dolphin bite. The Wahoo bite was pretty good today as well. Blackfin Tuna fishing was fair and the Yellowfin Tuna bite was scattered. Several Sailfish were released. Bottom fishing was good with Black Sea Bass helping to fill the fish box. Give us a call at 800-676-4939 to book the charter of your choice.
