Quite the plethora of fish to report today! Inshore anglers kept busy with good catches of Speckled Trout and Bluefish. A few Spanish Mackerel and Red Drum were caught this morning. Cobia provided a bite this afternoon. Four Blue Marlin were released and one was boated. One White Marlin was released. Overall, the billfish bite was hot with boats from all the marinas in on the action. The Dolphin bite was excellent and captains reported "all the Dolphin in the world" ou on the Gulf Stream! A few Blackfin Tuna and several Yellowfin Tuna made it into the fish box today. Come on down to the marina and watch the catch hit the dock and see the Blue Marlin weigh-in this afternoon.

What a difference a day makes! The wind fell out late last night and all of our fleet took advantage of the chance to get out on the water! Inshore fishing consisted of a scrappy mess of Speckled Trout this morning. This afternoon brought about a good catch of Spanish Mackerel. Several offshore charters returned early with limits of Dolphin (most of them gaffer size). Besides an excellent Dolphin bite, Wahoo fishing was good as was Blackfin Tuna. Bottom fish included Grouper and Tilefish. Gambler released a Sailfish and Tuna Duck released a White Marlin.

Northeast winds cranked all night with rain showers included. Needless to say, no boats fished today - inshore or offshore. The wind laid for a while early this afternoon, but started honking again from the north. Check back tomorrow to see if anyone makes it out. In the meantime, stop by the deli and enjoy breakfast or lunch. Come by the Ship's Store to check out this year's merchandise.

We had rain squalls and high seas along the coast today and that kept offshore boats from fishing. Winds turned north this afternoon and high seas are expected again tomorrow. One offshore boat fished near shore and returned with a good catch of Spanish Mackerel and some Bluefish. Several parties braved the weather and  fished inshore. They had a great time catching limits of Puppy Drum and Bluefish (one being a citation!). It's pretty unusual to experience a nor'easter in June - but here it is - enjoy the cooler weather!

Wind and some squalls kept Offshore boats in the harbor. Inshore boats were able to get out in the sound and wear out some Red Drum, lots of releases and some brought to the dock. Nearshore fishing found Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish. Phones have been ringing off the hook today and the Inshore boats are getting booked up quickly for this week! Don't miss your trip.

Inshore anglers had a great morning catching and releasing Red Drum and fighting to keep their catch from the Sharks. This afternoon they returned with good catches of Spanish Mackerel and Speckled Trout. Inshore trips are great for family outings or just kicking around with your friends! It was another scrappy day of fishing offshore. The Dolphin bite was slower for some and good for others. Some Blackfin Tuna and Yellowfin Tuna were caught as well as a couple of Wahoo. Bottom fishing was good with Triggerfish and Vermillion Snapper being caught. We currently need 4-5 people for a Make up charter for Monday. Make up charters go offshore for a full day of fishing.

Inshore anglers had a busy day with spanish Mackerel and Bluefish. A few Gray Trout and Red Drum were thrown into the mix this morning. Tuna Duck released one White Marlin offshore. Dolphin fishing slowed way down today and only a few made it into the fish box. A few Yellowfin Tuna were caught as well. Not all days produce a good bite - but just being out on the water is better than nothing at all!

Today began with overcast skies which cleared off about noon and provided anglers with a beautiful day to be on the water. The Red Drum bite was good again this morning and afternoon in the Pamlico Sound. Cobia fishing was on today! One boat fished near shore this afternoon and their catch consisted of Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish. One offshore boat went wreck fishing and returned with a real nice catch of Black Sea Bass and Triggerfish. Offshore anglers continue to catch gaffer and bailer size Dolphin, along with some good sized Wahoo and a few Blackfin Tuna. Bottom fishing was good. Bite Me released a Blue Marlin and Predator released a Sailfish.
