The forecast called for heavy downpours: but after a wet start, abundant sunshine prevailed for the better part of the day. 20 out of 22 boats fished the 3rd day of the HVOO Tournament. A total of three Blue Marlin were released. Congratulations Calypso on your Blue Marlin release today. Check out the latest stats on HVOO.org. Fishing was slow inshore today. Some citation Drum were released last night around Hatteras Inlet. A few Puppy Drum were located this morning along with a few Bluefish. Meat fish included gaffer Dolphin and Blackfin Tuna. Tomorrow will be the 4th and last day of the tournament and if the weather permits most of our fleet will be out fishing.

Offshore boats found decent weather and fishing today as well as Billfish. Dolphin were in good supply as well as citation size Blackfin Tuna. There were also some King Mackerel and Wahoo on the dock. Reliance released a White Marlin and Release released a Blue Marlin.

Keeper drum and good Spanish and Bluefish rounded it out Inshore.

Another gorgeous day for fishing. All of our offshore fleet ventured out today! It sure was a beautiful sight to see everyone heading out this morning. Meat fishing was slower than it has been. Most anglers returned with a few Dolphin, Blackfin Tuna and Yellowfin Tuna. Bottom fishing was good with Tilefish, Triggerfish, and Snowy Grouper - some great eating! The Billfish bite picked up though and the fleet released three Blue Marlin and boated one. A White Marlin was released but not from our fleet. Give us a call at 800-676-4939 to book your inshore, near shore, or offshore charter. Remember we also offer Make up charters for offshore trips.
