Hatteras Harbor Marina
When it comes to charter boat fishing on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, the name Hatteras and world class fishing go hand in hand…
Either offshore or inshore, Hatteras has it all and no one takes fishing more seriously than the captains and mates of the Hatteras Harbor Marina Charter Fleet. The largest and most experienced in the area, the fleet enjoys one of the shortest runs to the gulfstream where an abundance of fish is caught year round. From marlin, sailfish, tuna, dolphin and wahoo offshore to speckled trout, flounder, bluefish and red drum inshore our fleet is ready to serve your needs. Boats return to the docks between 4-5pm it's a great treat for the whole family to watch the catches hit the dock.
Bring the entire family and enjoy uncrowded pristine beaches amid a relaxed atmosphere where southern hospitality is at its best!
Hatteras Harbor Marina is proud to be the only marina on Hatteras Island to have a Charter Boat Association. Any boat running charters from our dock is required to be a member. This provides you security in knowing all boats have the required pertinent Coast Guard licenses, Marine Fisheries Permits and Insurances. All members are also required to be available for random drug testing and are subject to disciplinary measures. Our goal as a marina and association is to work together for the good of everyone. We provide a comfortable and safe family environment for our customers.
The HHCBA mission statement states "Our mission is to maintain a membership of qualified, competent charter boat owners and operators for the collective good of our captains, marina, supporting businesses and community."
There are more and more boats competing for trips in our area and not all of them have the knowledge and experience required to fish our waters. Please be aware of who and what you are putting your hard earned money into. Some important questions to ask are: At what marina are you located? Do you have your Coast Guard licenses and Fisheries permits? How long have you been fishing from Hatteras. How long have you run your boat? Be safe and fish on.

It started out to be a pretty and calm day this morning. By the time the big boats returned to the dock the wind had picked up a little out of the SW. It was a scrappy day for some and for others it was a very good live bait day. They had real good King Mackerel and big Blackfin Tuna. Along with some Dolphin and a little Tunny. They also had a Barracuda and a couple of Cobia. Tuna Duck released a Sailfish and Bluefin Tuna were spotted around and are starting to show up. Inshore boats had their limits of Spanish Mackerel, limits on some pretty keeper Red Drum today and big Bluefish.
Tomorrow looks to be a blow day with strong North winds from a cold front going through. Monday may be more of a fishable day.

The big boats got to the fishing grounds looking at a pretty sunrise. It was a beautiful day out there and the fish were biting. They had King Mackerel and Wahoo slung over the gunnels along with some bailer Dolphin and some Blackfin Tuna. Nearshore the Spanish Mackerel were biting. Inshore boats had a great day too with catches of Spanish Mackerel, Speckled Trout and big Bluefish.
Tomorrow is looking like another pretty day until the cold front comes through tomorrow evening.
