There was still a strong SW wind this morning, however, several offshore boats made it out to the fishing grounds. Fishing was scrappy - some Dolphin, a few Wahoo, and a few Blackfin Tuna. Bottom fishing brought up Grouper and Vermillion Snapper. Two Sailfish were released by lucky anglers! Congratulations to Joe (son of Capt. Jay/Bite Me) for winning the Jr. Angler's Division in the Hatteras Grand Slam Tournament! Inshore charters got out today - some went clamming, others got on a good Bluefish bite and a good Speckled Trout bite. Some Spanish Mackerel and a few keeper Flounder were caught. The wind should fall out for a beautiful day to go fishing tomorrow. Looking for fun family fishing excursion - give us a call at 800-676-4939 and we'll be glad to hook you up!

Stormy conditions early this morning kept all boats at the dock, except one who braved the wind this afternoon and fished inshore for Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish. SW winds continue to blow so tomorrow is questionable. Don't let Summer pass you by - give us a call at 800-676-4939 to book the charter of your choice.

Today provided another opportunity to get in some great fishing! Inshore anglers enjoyed catching Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, and even a keeper Flounder. One boat fished near shore this morning and caught Spanish Mackerel - it was a family group and they returned to the dock quite pleased. Our offshore fleet brought in limits of Dolphin along with a scattered Wahoo bite. Bottom fish included Grouper, Tilefish, Triggerfish, and Black Sea Bass. What a smorgasbord for the grill tonight! Two Sailfish were released as well. It is supposed to blow from the SW tomorrow and we'll have to wait and see if they can get out. Check out the latest results for the Hatteras Grand Slam Tournament on their website.

It has been a stormy day on Hatteras Island. Inshore boats fished this morning, however, the bite was extremely slow. No one fished this afternoon because of the weather. Offshore boats went out and most returned early due to numerous lightning strikes and rain squalls. They did manage to get excellent catches of Dolphin before having to head in - not bad for about a half to a three-quarter day of fishing. One Sailfish was released. The weather is iffy for tomorrow - check back to see what transpires.
