Hatteras Fishing Report

Fishing News on Hatteras Island

Surrounded by water and in close proximity to the Gulf Stream, Hatteras Island emanates a life rich in fish culture. Some islanders fish for a living, some islanders fish for fun, some islanders sell fish in their restaurants and some islanders prepare bountiful fish-rich meals for their families. One thing is for sure, the various Hatteras Island fisheries have an impact on those who are blessed to call this place their home and we love sharing them with our friends and neighbors. While the docks are always abuzz with fishing action, sharing with you is exactly what we aim to do. Check out our fishing report below to stay tuned on what's being caught, what they're using to catch them and the fisheries that are ever-changing!

From Sea to Plate

One of the most exciting things about fishing is the catch itself. That glorifying moment when the hunt becomes luctrative and you're fighting nature's ancient battle of man vs. animal. One of the most of satisfying things about fishing is when your catch is sitting before you in the...

The fishing continues to be good as long as the weather cooperates.  This weekend proved that.  Inshore we had Cobia, Drum, King Mackeral, Spanish Mackeral, Bonita Macks, and Bluefish.  Offshore the Dolphin action continues to improve with some good catches of "Gaffers".  Some nice Blackfin Tuna...

Good Morning and Good Day!  It was another beautiful day on the island yesterday as well as on the water.  The guys offshore had some good action with Gaffer Dolphins yesterday and we did have a Sailfish release. Inshore the King Mackeral bite has been great!  A lot of fish around in the 8 to 15...

What a beautiful day yesterday!  We had most of our boats out yesterday and the fishing was good.  The guys offshore had some good dolphin fishing! Along with them they had some Blackfin Tunas a scattered Wahoo, and some King Mackerals. Inshore the guys were able to find Cobias yesterday.  We...

Good Morning! What a beautiful morning we have yet again, thankfully.  Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous here on the sandbar with lots of hungry fish.  The big news around here was the Cobia action.  Right many fish were seen yesterday and the guys had some good action with the hungry ones. ...

Happy May 1st!!!  Fishing is great here on the Sandbar and off it as well.  Yesterday the bluefish were in force for the surf fishermen as well as the boats. Some of the Spring time  Big Choppers made as showing as well. The inshore guys once again got on the Big Drum. Some of the few Cobia's...

Fishing on the Stormy Petrel II

Our last couple of trips were Gulf Stream charters and we found good fishing. Bottom fishing has been as good as you want and there have still been some good days for mahi fishing. There have also been some catches of wahoo when the conditions have been favorable.

I am as surprised as can be.  I thought after this Blow we got that Fishing would turn to Garbage, but I was Pleasantly Surprised and Wrong.  Bak-Bar Ran the First Charter after the storm and Got a Citation Drum for my Good Friend Denny Brown from Pa, measured up at 43 inches.  There have been...

How Bout It !!!!!!!
