Mild temperatures and calmer seas allowed charters to get out and about today. Inshore anglers got on a good Red Drum bite with keepers and releases. What fun to catch them on light tackle! One boat fished near shore and returned with Bluefish and King Mackerel. Offshore charters finally got out to the Gulf Stream and experienced a good Blackfin Tuna bite along with scattered Wahoo. Looking for a diversion this fall, come to Hatteras and experience some world class fishing. Give us a call at 800-676-4939 for more information.

The weather has been gorgeous for the first day of November. Abundant sunshine and warm temperatures have made for perfect fishing weather. Unfortunately none of our offshore fleet had a charter booked for today. Inshore charters went out and caught lots of small Speckled Trout with a few keepers along the way. They also got on some Bluefish. Rain is forecast for the next couple of days along with warmer temps - still worth a try as the fish are already wet! Give us a call at 800-676-4939 and book the fishing adventure of your choice.
