Happy Flag Day!! It has been a beautiful day on Hatteras. All of our fleet went out today and happy anglers abound. Inshore boats returned with catches of Speckled Trout, Spanish Mackerel, and Cobia. Red Drum fishing was good with several releases and one keeper on a fly rod. Way to go! One party went out and returned with a limit of clams. Offshore,Lucky Chip released a Blue Marlin. Dolphin fishing was fair to good depending on which direction they went. The Wahoo bite was scattered as well as the Blackfin Tuna bite. Bottom fish included Amberjack. Several boats from our fleet are fishing the Big Rock tournament. Check out their website for the latest results - 59th-annual-big-rock-blue-marlin-tournament.

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.
