Winds blew from the northwest causing rough conditions in the Sound and out on the ocean. It also ushered in much colder air, making it feel more like Fall! A handful of boats headed out into the Pamlico Sound for a fair to good day of Drum fishing. Two boats headed offshore with one returning early. The other party braved the conditions and released a Sailfish. They ended up with a mixed catch of Wahoo, Dolphin, Yellowfin Tuna, Blackfin Tuna, and King Mackerel. Way to go, guys! Better weather is forecast for this weekend - want to go fishing? Give us a call at 800-676-4939 and book the charter of your choice.

Some rain came through this morning bringing in much cooler temperatures. It did not dampen the spirits of some hardy inshore anglers who went out for a good morning catching Speckled Trout and Drum. Only two charters ventured offshore. They focused on King Mackerel and returned with a fair to good catch. One group bottom fished for Amberjack and just as the fish hit, a big rain squall came through and drenched everyone. Sounds like a good time!

High winds kept the boats at the dock today. We spent the day getting our 2018 calendars started, so if you are thinking about days for next year we will be able to hook you up soon. Weather was cooler today with overcast skies and rain in the early morning.

A few Yellowfin Tuna and Wahoo today as well as a Sailfish released by Release. A few King Mackerel and Triggerfish as well rounded out the day. Not a red hot day of fishing but the gorgeous day more than made up for it. Inshore boats were catching Flounder last evening and today were on the Red Drum and Speckled Trout. We had a Manatee come for a visit today not a sight we usually have.

A good number of boats headed offshore this morning, they enjoyed a beautiful sunny day with lite winds. They returned with some good catches of Blackfin Tuna and Dolphin. Bottom fishing produced lots of Trigger fish, Snapper and Amberjacks. The wahoo bites were a little scattered. Tuna Duck released a Blue Marlin and there were more seen.

Inshore anglers had a great time catching keeper Red Drum and limits of nice sized Speckled Trout.

It doesn't get any better than this - no wind, temps in the 70's, and plentiful sunshine! Inshore charters struggled with their catches this afternoon, but this morning they caught some Speckled Trout, Bluefish, and Gray Trout. Lots of big Drum were released. Conditions offshore improved today. Four Sailfish were released. Dolphin, Wahoo, and Blackfin Tuna catches were good.

It has been an absolutely beautiful Fall day on the island! Inshore anglers returned with a mixed bag this morning. One party returned with Flounder and Sheepshead, another with Red Drim, and one with Speckled Trout and Bluefish. Conditions were much slower this afternoon, but the parties had a great time spending time with friends and family on the water! It's still a bit scrappy offshore - a few Wahoo and Blackfin Tuna were caught. Bottom fishing was pretty good with Triggerfish and Vermillion Snapper. A Blue Marlin and a Sailfish were released. We still need people to fill a Make up charter for tomorrow or Sunday - give us a call at 800-676-4939.

Inshore anglers took advantage of the early fall weather to enjoy a great day of fishing the Pamlico Sound. Speckled Trout fishing was excellent with limits of Trout - " a nice class of fish, BIG"! The Drum bite was on again today with limits for the charters. One offshore boat ventured out and returned with a good catch of King Mackerel. Looks like the Fall fish have arrived.

Rough conditions kept all offshore boats docked today. Inshore charters ran out into the Pamlico Sound and had a good day catching and releasing big Red Drum.
