Carolina blue skies and a cool NE breeze made for an excellent day to play outdoors. Whether it was at the beach or on the water fishing, it was impossible to beat today's weather! Inshore anglers returned with real good catches of Tailor Bluefish. Bluefish are excellent fried or bake to make fish cakes. Anglers who ventured offshore reported fair to good catches of Dolphin. Bottom fishing produced nice catches of Triggerfish and Grouper. One Sailfish was released. Fishing was a bit scrappy, but anglers managed to bring back some good fillets to grill, fry, or bake. Give us a call at 800-676-4939 and we'll hook you up with the fishing trip of your choice.

We had our entire fleet out today taking advantage of the weather and getting their charters on the fish. Inshore charters concentrated on Red Drum, both Keepers and citation releases. The Bluefish bite was good and kept anglers busy when not catching Drum. Offshore, the Billfish bite was on with one Blue Marlin and four Sailfish releases. Dolphin fishing was scrappy for some and better for others. The Blackfin Tuna bite was scattered.One boat fished near shore and caught Almaco Jack and Amberjack. Don't let your vacation slip by without a fishing excursion - give us a call at 800-676-4939 to book the charter of your choice.

Inshore boats were busy shuffling anglers out into the Pamlico Sound this morning and afternoon. Today's catch consisted of Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Cobia, and Red Drum. Clamming was the choice for several groups who got their limit. Besides being a fun way to spend time with friends and family, fishing can be very educational as well. The Billfish bite was on again with five Sailfish released. Fishing was kind of scrappy with bailer Dolphin being the main catch along with some gaffers. Bottom fish included Tilefish and Grouper. One Wahoo was caught. Despite showers offshore everyone appeared to enjoy their time on the water!

Another busy day for anglers! Offshore boats headed out this morning after a couple of blow days. The Billfish bite was good with six Sailfish releases and one White Marlin release. Most boats returned with limits of bailer Dolphin along with some Triggerfish and Black Sea Bass. Inshore anglers returned with lots of Bluefish. Citation size Red Drum kept anglers busy and some "keeper" Drum were caught as well. A few groups went clamming. Sounds like a mixed grill tonight. Tomorrow looks to be another busy day filled with lots of sunshine, good weather, and fond memories. Don't miss out - give us a call at 800-676-4939 to book your charter!

Seas were still high offshore and the larger boats stayed in. The sound was a little more forgiving and boats fished morning and afternoon. They had limits of Red Drum both large and puppy size. A young angler fought and released a 50" Red Drum on a trout rod with 10lb test. There were also a good showing of Bluefish in the mix. Weather looks to be subsiding as the week goes on so we hope to have boats out all week. Stop by the marina store and check out the 2018 Captains T-Shirt.

Weather churning offshore kept the bigger boats in, but the Inshore boats were able to get in a morning. They found Spanish Mackerel and released big Red Drum.
