Weather was windy today and all boats stayed at the docks.

Southwest winds and a big sea kept most offshore boats at the dock today. Two boats went out to the Gulf Stream and returned earlier than usual with limits of Dolphin. Release released two White Marlin. Inshore boats that went out this morning returned with good catches of Bluefish, a few Puppy Drum, and a good catch of Spanish Mackerel. Let's hope the wind falls out and fishing will resume as our fleet is booking up for the Summer. Don't miss out - give us a call at 800-676-4939 and we'll hook you up!

The Summer crowd is here and ready to fish! Inshore boats entertained anglers today and got them onto Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, and Red Drum. Some family groups went out (including youngsters) and received some instruction on types of fish, and how to hook and reel in fish. It really is educational and very hands on! Near shore anglers returned with good catches of Spanish Mackerel. Most of our offshore fleet ventured to the Gulf Stream and five Billfish were released today. The Dolphin bite was fair. Add in a few Wahoo and a few Blackfin Tuna for some nice variety. King Mackerel are still hanging around and help to fill the fish box. A Rainbow Runner ( a member of the Jack family) was caught as well.

The Bluefish bite was on this morning but slowed down this afternoon.  A group got on the Drum and were quite taken by catching them on light tackle.

One Sailfish was released. We have some openings this weekend, so don't miss out this Summer -give us a call a call at 800-676-4939 to book your next fishing adventure.

Spanish Mackerel were plentiful on the soundside this morning and on the ocean side this afternoon. The Bluefish bite was good this morning and sharks were reported at the point in Buxton. Most of our fleet fished offshore and experienced a good Dolphin bite. The Wahoo and Blackfin Tuna bite was scattered. Bottom fishing was pretty good today with Triggerfish, Black Sea Bass, Tilefish, Gag Grouper. Snowy Grouper, and Longfin Basslet. Three billfish were released by very lucky anglers! It was an extremely hot day and anglers reported a slight breeze offshore that made it all better - that's one way to beat the heat!

Another gorgeous day to be out on the water. Once again our fleet stayed busy all day sporting anglers out to the fish! This morning brought good catches of Spanish Mackerel in the Pamlico Sound. The afternoon anglers located big schools of citation Drum, caught some Puppy Drum, and topped that off with a nice catch of Bluefish. Offshore anglers kept busy catching limits of Dolphin. The Blackfin Tuna bite was fair and bottom fishing produced Tilefish and Grouper. Two Blue Marlin were caught on the last day of the Big Rock Tournament by Hatteras Fever II.
