Rain showers did not dampen the efforts of inshore anglers this morning. Fishing was a bit slower than yesterday, but they returned with some Speckled Trout, Drum, and Gray Trout. A handful of boats fished offshore and a few Dolphin and Wahoo were caught. The Blackfin Tuna bite was good. Two Sailfish were released. Bottom fishing continues to be good.

We were blessed with some beautiful weather today. Inshore the fishing was just as good as you can get - one captain stated that it was a day that you dream about!  Anglers caught limits of Speckled Trout and Red Drum both this morning and afternoon. Check out the pictures along with the smiles - way to go! The fishing offshore was on the slow side. Some Dolphin, Wahoo, and Blackfin Tuna were caught. Bottom fishing was good. Some Sailfish and one Mako Shark were seen -even on slower days there is a lot to see when you travel offshore. Don't miss out on a wonderful opportunity to get out and explore the waters of North Carolina. Give us a call at 800-676-4949 to book your fishing adventure.

No Offshore boats fished out of Hatteras Harbor today due to ocean swells. A couple of Inshore boats went out in the morning and had an excellent catch of Red Drum and then topped it off with a clamming trip where they caught their limit.

A good number of boats headed offshore this morning, hoping for the nicer today than expected. They got what they had wished for the ocean was great and the fish were there. The boats returned with a mixed bag of fish, Wahoo, nice size Dolphin and both some Yellow and Blackfin Tuna. There were also some Trigger fish caught. 

Inshore anglers enjoyed catching Speckled trout and Red Drum

Another beautiful day in paradise! There was a lot of activity on and around the dock today as our fleet took advantage of the day and the weather to get out and fish. Inshore anglers reported a good Speckled Trout catch this morning  and this afternoon some groups took advantage of the slick conditions and went clamming. Our offshore fleet enjoyed a good day of fishing the Gulf Stream. Their catch consisted of Wahoo, Dolphin, Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna, and Triggerfish. One Blue Marlin and one Sailfish were released. Way to go!

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.

Fishing conditions were scrappy all around today. The King Mackerel bite was fair to good. A few Wahoo and Triggerfish were caught by the few boats that fished offshore. The weather is holding out through next week. Let's hope the fishing picks up.
