Outer Banks North Carolina Fishing Reports
Finally, end of summer
Fishing this summer on the Outer Banks has been hit or miss for the inshore fishing. Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel and most of the other inshore species have not been caught in any great numbers. The offshore bite has been much better. Many days, limits of Dolphin are boated. The Yellowfin tuna bite has been fair out of Oregon Inlet and a better Blackfin tuna bite out of Hatteras. The billfish bite has been good at both inlets. Also got a chance to upgrade my electronics thanks to Simrad. The new NSS EVO is the latest and greatest unit that Simrad makes. Lets go put it to the test and catch some fish.
Spring fishing is picking up. A few puppy drum around the inlet and a few bluefish, but the water is still a little cold. Offshore, the bite is getting better ever day. Fair catches of Yellowfin & Blackfin tuna, plus a few Dolphin to boot. If this wind would give us a break, I'm sure the numbers would increase. Give us a call and book your trip soon.
Sadly no fish
So far its turning out to be another bad year for Striped Bass on the Outer Banks. I'm not sure why they are not showing up off the coast of North Carolina, but there are tons of fisherman and captains that miss them. As soon as the weather breaks, I'm going on a quest to find them or a Bluefin tuna. More to come from the Outer Banks.
End of summer fishing
Fishing on the Outer Banks has overall been great. Sure there has been some days better than other. The offshore bite has been steady with a mix bag of tuna, dolphin wahoo, and now a few billfish showing up. Inshore, outside the inlet, its been a few cobia starting to head back south, along with some big Red Drum. Spanish Mackerel are mixed in with the Albacore and a few King Mackerel mixed in with them. In the sound, the usual bottom fish like croakers, flounder, sea mullet, and bluefish. The puppy drum are still around, mostly on the flats. Fall fishing is just around the corner, so shoot me an email and lets go.
I got to meet Wild Bill from Deadliest Catch at the Pirates Cove Billfish tournament. Very nice man and he was more than willing to take a photo with anyone.
