What a gorgeous day on the Outer Banks and a wonderful parade at the docks today! Near-Shore anglers were catching good numbers of nice-sized spanish macs and a few bluefish. Definitely some tasty meals happening! In-Shore anglers had some good fishing as well, good enough so that a few anglers extended their morning trips to enjoy just a little bit more fishing!! Hookups of spinner sharks entertained some excited kiddos!
Anglers Off-Shore enjoyed another day of remarkable yellow-fin catches, with several trophy citations earned. It was also another great day for big-eye tuna and a few mahi, as well as a wahoo or two! There were also a few billfish released today!

Last Monday, the weather forecast was not favorable, but the actual conditions were gorgeous! Today, the forecast was favorable, but the actual conditions...not so much. But, off-shore anglers were ready to give it a go and ready to give it up less than a few hours in. A few yellow-fin and mahi were brought back to the docks and not at all the show we're famous for. Resilient, the captains are and try again, they will. Here's hoping for a better show tomorrow.

It is with heavy hearts, we bid farewell to fellow waterman, legendary boat builder, founder, and friend. Captain B.C. Buddy Cannady passed away this morning. Captain B.C. was a driving force in the growth of the Dare County Recreational Charter Fishing industry, bringing about the waterman's way of life for many here on the Outer Banks. Captain B.C. left deep marks on the boatbuilding industry here in Dare County and beyond, with boaters for many years to come benefiting from his influence.
Captain B.C. will be greatly missed and the Management and Crew of Oregon Inlet Fishing Center will remain ever grateful for his founding influences and extend our sympathies to his daughter, Melodye Cannady Callaway and his grandchildren, Buddy Callaway, Lillie Callaway Leavel, and great grandson, William Leavel. Captain B.C. also leaves behind many extended family members.
Don't let the rain change your mind about fishing! Just put on the raingear and go! Anglers off-shore were not deterred and enjoyed good tuna fishing, still pulling in those yellow prizes, earning a trophy citation to boot. Congrats to Cole Panko - 80 lb, Jason Waughtel - 78 lb, and Josh Yates - 83 lb. Anglers also enjoyed catches of big-eye and billfish, as well. Congrats to Brian Whitley for earning a trophy citation for his sailfish release.
