Another busy day for anglers! Offshore boats headed out this morning after a couple of blow days. The Billfish bite was good with six Sailfish releases and one White Marlin release. Most boats returned with limits of bailer Dolphin along with some Triggerfish and Black Sea Bass. Inshore anglers returned with lots of Bluefish. Citation size Red Drum kept anglers busy and some "keeper" Drum were caught as well. A few groups went clamming. Sounds like a mixed grill tonight. Tomorrow looks to be another busy day filled with lots of sunshine, good weather, and fond memories. Don't miss out - give us a call at 800-676-4939 to book your charter!

Seas were still high offshore and the larger boats stayed in. The sound was a little more forgiving and boats fished morning and afternoon. They had limits of Red Drum both large and puppy size. A young angler fought and released a 50" Red Drum on a trout rod with 10lb test. There were also a good showing of Bluefish in the mix. Weather looks to be subsiding as the week goes on so we hope to have boats out all week. Stop by the marina store and check out the 2018 Captains T-Shirt.

Weather churning offshore kept the bigger boats in, but the Inshore boats were able to get in a morning. They found Spanish Mackerel and released big Red Drum.

No boats left the dock today due to weather. A few Inshore boats may be heading out tomorrow.

Northeast winds prevailed all day making water conditions quite choppy. Inshore boats headed out this morning and returned with good catches of Bluefish and some Red Drum. They stayed in this afternoon due to choppy waves. About half the offshore fleet went out to fish the Gulf Stream. They reported a good Billfish bite with one Blue Marlin release, three White Marlin releases, and two Sailfish releases. Congratulations Predator on your Grand Slam! The dolphin bite slowed down and the catches were pretty scrappy. The Wahoo bite appears to be picking up. To check out the latest official results of the Hatteras Grand Slam - check out their facebook page. It is supposed to blow the next few days, so check back to see what's going on!

We've had a very busy day at the marina with inshore, near shore, and offshore charters. Inshore anglers got on Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish this morning. Big Drum, Puppy Drum, and Black Drum were biting later in the day. Several groups went out this afternoon to splash in the water and to look for sea shells! Others went clamming. Everyone appeared to return wet and happy. Near shore charters went out this morning and returned with Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish as well. The Dolphin bite continues to be good offshore with both gaffers and bailers. Bottom fishing produced some Triggerfish and Amberjack. One charter spent the day catching a limit of bailers on fly rods (father and son). One Blue Marlin and eight Sailfish were released by our fleet. The Hatteras Grand Slam began today and a total of three Blue Marlin, two White Marlin, and nineteen Sailfish kept participants busy and tomorrow will be another chance to get out and go for the Billfish.

Another good day of fishing out of Hatteras Harbor Marina. Inshore anglers returned with good catches of Bluefish and some "keeper" Red Drum. They also offer clamming excursions and even sight-seeing excursions. There are many ways to have fun while boating in the Pamlico Sound. Anglers who fished offshore experienced a good Billfish bite! Two Blue Marlin, one White Marlin, and four Sailfish were released today, keeping everyone on their toes! The Dolphin bite was not red hot, but many good catches came in. A few Wahoo and Blackfin Tuna helped to produce some variety. It was an extremely hot day all across the south and the best way to beat the heat is to get out and about on the water and have a great time fishing!

Happy 4th of July! Bluefish was on tap for inshore anglers all day. A few Spanish Mackerel and a handful of small Cobia were caught as well. This afternoon one group went out clamming and enjoyed being in the water digging for their dinner - what a great meal for a hot Summer evening! Three Blue Marlin and one Sailfish were released by our offshore fleet. The Dolphin bite continues to be good with some boats returning with limits. A few King Mackerel were caught and bottom fishing was good with Triggerfish, Tilefish, and Grouper. Enjoy the fireworks tonight and be safe!
