The first full day of Fall brought blue skies and lots of sunshine. Inshore anglers reeled in Speckled Trout and Bluefish this morning. The afternoon brought about keeper Drum.

What a beautiful day for the last day of Summer! All of our fleet stayed busy today with fishing charters. Inshore anglers experienced great Speckled Trout fishing, with a some Drum (keepers) and Blefish this morning. The bite slowed down quite a bit this afternoon, however anglers still returned with smiles from spending a great afternoon on the water! Offshore, three Sailfish were released.

Jose continued to churn up the ocean keeping boats in. Inshore a couple of boats went out and got a fair catch of Puppy Drum. Looks like Offshore will be a wash tomorrow but the rest of the week looks much improved.

Sunday, September 17, 2017

Another win for the Inshore team as Offshore boats were unable to fish today. Wind and wave heights kept the Offshore fleet in. Inshore boats were catching great Puppy Drum and Trout.

It is certainly a busy day on the docks with all the activities happening with our 14th annual Day at the Docks celebration. Children and adults alike had a great time learning about our local traditions in the fishing industry. Morning anglers that fished inshore reported good Drum and Speckled Trout catches. A handful of boats fished offshore and returned with good Dolphin (some limits) and Wahoo catches. Blackfin Tuna was scattered today. Today's events end with the "Blessing of the Fleet" - so come on down to the docks and offer your blessings.

Another beautiful day on Hatteras Island led to many people heading out inshore or offshore for an exciting fishing adventure! Folks who fished the Pamlico Sound had a great time catching Drum, Speckled Trout, and Bluefish. One group took to clamming and returned with a limit. The offshore charters reported some rough conditions this morning, but calmer seas this afternoon. Native Son released a Sailfish. Dolphin fishing was good with some limits of bailers. Wahoo fishing was good again today. A couple of Blackfin Tuna were caught. Tomorrow is our annual Day at the Docks celebration, celebrating our local watermen and their trade - both commercial and charter captains and the industry that supports our legacy. Don't miss out on all the fun - bring the whole family - it is educational and enlightening!

What a beautiful day to head offshore. Anglers had to wait patiently for the ocean to calm down and it was worth the wait! Hatteras Blue released one Sailfish and Release released three Sailfish. The Wahoo bite provided a lot of action and anglers returned with excellent catches. Dolphin fishing was good and a few Blackfin Tuna were caught. The morning brought limits of keeper Drum, Speckled Trout, and Bluefish for inshore anglers. This afternoon brought good Drum fishing for everyone fishing the Pamlico Sound.
