Congratulations to Chris and Kerri Barnett of the Predator on the birth of their third child - Vycee Mae Barnett born 5/23/2017 at 8:22 a.m. - 8lb. 2oz., 19 1/2 in. long. Welcome to the world young lady! Rain squalls and big seas kept offshore boats at the dock today. Several inshore boats fished the Pamlico Sound and caught some keeper Red Drum. One boat came back with a limit of clams. There are more storms in the forecast for tonight with clearing later tomorrow afternoon.

Another great day of fishing for our fleet. Inshore anglers experienced lots of Cobia action this morning and afternoon. If they weren't catching Cobia, they had good action from Spanish Mackerel, Grey Trout, and Spot. Billfish was the name of the game for offshore anglers! Eight Blue Marlin, two White Marlin, and two Sailfish were released by our fleet alone. Dolphin and Blackfin Tuna fishing were good again today. A big shout out to Team "DOFA" who had a great day of gaffer Dolphin fishing on Gambler. The Wahoo bite was scattered. All boats are booked tomorrow - check back to view the latest action or better yet, book your own charter and get in on the action!

What a beautiful day for fishing! The story of the day for inshore anglers was Red Drum - keepers and over slot size. Cobia was caught this morning. It was a great day to be offshore and almost every boat fished. Dolphin fishing continues to be great with both bailers and gaffers being pulled in. The Blackfin Tuna bite was good and a few Wahoo were caught as well. A Whale Shark was seen, which is very unusual for this area. It was 20 - 30 ft. long and surprised captains and anglers alike.

Another magnificent day to be fishing out of Hatteras! Inshore fishing was great with limits of Gray Trout. Bluefish, Sea Mullet, and Spot helped to round out the day. Cobia are still in the action! The billfish bite was good with four Blue Marlin released and one boated. Dolphin fishing was excellent. The Blackfin Tuna bite was good and a few Wahoo were caught as well. Way to go, anglers!
