Outer Banks Fishing Reports

Now Booking for the 2018 Season

With the 2017 fishing season winding down, it's time to start planning for next year. We are now booking for the 2018 season. If you are planning an Outer Banks trip next year, book now because our calendar fills up quick!

Well folks, we are closing out on another great season of fun, excitement and lots of fishing. This last month, has been quite challenging with all the hurricanes and tough weather to deal with. But again, we have no control over mother nature. Within this month, when weather allowed, we were able to go in the sounds, and catch sheepshead. What a fun time was had by all! Sheepshead fishing can be tough at times, but for the most part we were able to catch some nice size ones. Children also enjoyed this type of fishing. They were often amazed at their catch, with the sizes that they brought in! Lots of dinner plates with some good eating, were filled on their visit with us. Thanks so much for your business. Certainly, we hope each of you have a wonderful rest of this year. We look forward to seeing each of our customers again, along with some new ones. We hope you have a most Blessed holiday season and New Year!

The last two weeks have been mixed with some weather issues but some good fishing when we were able to go. Good Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish near-shore ocean when mother nature allowed us to get out. Sheepshead was and still is a good bite out in the sounds. Hopefully, some good fall fishing is upon us! Usually, this time of year, air changes with not so much humidity. Sea temperatures are still up gives in to some good near-shore ocean and sound catches. Certainly, we appreciate all who booked with us these past weeks. If weather didn’t permit us to go, hopefully, you will give us a call again next time you’re in the area. Thanks again folks, for your continued business. Already booking and planning for the 2018 season! Stay safe everyone and hope to see you again!

First off this past week, we had lots of fun and excitement in the sounds for great sheepshead catching! On one particular trip, we had a group repeat customers that have joined us for several years. They knew the activity involved when catching sheepshead, because they had enjoyed it with us before and wanted to do that again. Well, lots of fun and action was their name on that trip! Even their little 5 year old, that so loved fishing himself, was able this year, to get in on all the fun and excitement, with catching his own sheepshead. Of course, Dad had to help him hold it, for our photo shoot. He worked so HARD, he fell asleep on the ride back to the dock. Great job buddy! Look forward to sharing this same experience with you again.

Later, in the week we headed out to the ocean, when the winds calmed for us to get there. Bluefish were caught near-shore ocean, with recipes shared to enjoy for dinner that night. So as August comes about, we are still enjoying lots of good times on the waters of the Outer Banks. We share lots of happy moments, with so many terrific people. Folks, we appreciate again you sharing your vacation with us. We appreciate the business you bring us and so look forward to your return again. We wish you a continued safe and enjoyable summer. Enjoy all the beautiful weather while it’s here, for fall will be approaching before we know it. A big thanks To everyone!

Spanish Mackerel, Sheepshead, Moon Fish and Sharks have been on our dinner plates this past week. Some days, winds have been quite challenging, and fishing was slow. But, for the most part we have managed to do some catching. Lots of fun, with returning customers as well as enjoying some new folks. Kid’s are always welcomed! Their excitement of seeing what they have reeled from the bottom of the sea, is always lots of fun. Lots of big smiles can always be captured, with that excitement. Folks, summer is moving right along. Give us a call, and let’s go out and enjoy some fun times on the Atlantic Ocean or the sounds of the North Carolina Outer Banks. Thanks again to everyone for your business. We hope your summer continues to be enjoyable and a safe one. Hope to see ya’ll again real soon!
