The old saying "March in like a lion, out like a lamb" certainly applied today. Spring is in the air! Inshore fishing is picking up with Gray Trout and Bluefish being caught. It was so calm today that they ventured out into the ocean and returned with Black Sea Bass as well. Offshore charters experienced a good Tuna bite with Blackfin and Yellowfin thrown in the box. A few Wahoo and King Mackerel were caught. Amberjack, Blue Runners, and Albacore were in the mix as well. Bottom fishing was good. If you are on Spring Break, come to Hatteras and enjoy a half day (inshore) or full day (offshore) fun fishing expedition. Call 800-676-4939 to book your trip today!
Bite Me: Andrew Deyoung of Boston, MA caught a 39lb King Mackerel.

It has been a while, but we actually had charters that fished offshore today! They reported calm seas, bountiful sunshine, and a warm breeze. The Tuna bite was fair with Blackfin and Yellowfin being caught. At least one Wahoo was reported. Add in a couple of King Mackerel and scattered Mako Shark action for excitement. Bottom fishing was good with Black Sea Bass and Triggerfish. Spring appears to be here - don't miss out - give us a call at 800-676-4939 to book your trip!
