The weather and the fishing certainly improved today. There has been a lot of activity on the docks with inshore, near shore, and offshore parties boarding boats and returning with good catches. Inshore anglers caught Bluefish, Speckled Trout, big Drum and some keeper Drum, Gray Trout, and some Flounder this morning and afternoon. One boat fished near shore and returned with Amberjack. Offshore, fishing was slow but steadily improving. The Wahoo bite and the Dolphin bite were fair to good. Blackfin Tuna made a better showing today. Some King Mackerel are starting to show up. Bottom fishing was good with Triggerfish and Vermillion Snapper. Our entire fleet is fishing offshore tomorrow - so check back for more information.

The Harvest moon greeted early risers and led the charters out through the inlet and into the big sea. It was a very beautiful sight! Inshore anglers are still being challenged by a great Drum bite. They had quite a few citation releases and some keepers as well. A handful of Speckled Trout were caught this morning. Offshore charters experienced a real good Wahoo bite today. Dolphin fishing was better than it has been for a while. A few Blackfin Tuna were caught. Bottom fishing was good with Vermillion Snapper and Triggerfish. Sounds like an excellent mixed grill for dinner tonight.

Sorry for the late report - the internet and phones, etc. went out and we had no service. There was a lot of Drum action inshore and reports of good Speckled Trout fishing as well. A handful of charters fished offshore and returned with some nice Wahoo. a few Dolphin, and a few Blackfin Tuna. Bottom fishing was good. October is a great time to fish or clam or just go out and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

October showed up with a hint of fall with cool temps in the morning coming up to the mid 70's by afternoon. Offshore waters were pretty kicked up and not boats fished Offshore. Inshore boats however ventured out and had a great day of Puppy Drum. A few people on our makeup list looking to fish this week. If you only have one or two wanting to fish stop by and sign up and we will get you out on the water!

NE winds brought about much cooler air, however mixed with abundant sunshine, it made for a picture perfect day! Morning anglers reported very good "keeper" Drum fishing. The afternoon groups reported good Speckled Trout and Bluefish. Inshore trips run half days in the Pamlico Sound and offer other options such as clamming, sight seeing, or flounder gigging (night trips). The Billfish bite was on offshore with 7 Sailfish releases from our fleet. The meat fish bite was scrappy again today with a few Dolphin, Wahoo, and Blackfin Tuna reported.

A few inshore boats fished and reported good "keeper" Drum fishing. Offshore boats reported bumpy conditions getting to and from the Gulf Stream. One party released a Sailfish. Dolphin fishing was fair to good. The Wahoo bite was fair and a few Blackfin Tuna were caught as well. Triggerfish and Vermillion Snapper were targeted above the wrecks.
