Inshore boats were busy with both morning and afternoon trips on this beautiful, sunny Saturday! In the Pamlico Sound, they caught Puppy Drum and Spanish Mackerel. Some boats ventured outside the inlet and returned with Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, and Bluefish.

Our entire fleet fished offshore today. Dolphin fishing was great, with both gaffers and bailers caught. Several Wahoo were brought in and a few Yellowfin Tuna as well. Those who bottom fished had nice catches of Vermillion Snapper, Silver Snapper, Amberjack, Triggerfish, and Grouper. One boat released a White Marlin.

We need 2-3 people for a Make-up charter tomorrow. Call 800-676-4939 if interested.

Citation size Red Drum continue to be caught inshore. Anglers also caught Gray Trout, Spanish Mackerel, and Cobia just outside Hatteras Inlet. Clamming is a fun family adventure and our inshore boats will take you out to dig for clams in shallow water.

Most boats reported a scrappy day of fishing offshore, although several boats came in with good catches of gaffer size Dolphin. Wahoo fishing was scattered today. Bottom fishing included Vermillion Snappers, Silver Snappers, and Triggerfish.
