Did you hear about the evil tuna?
He was rotten to the albacore.
Slick calm out in the Atlantic, bringing in tile fish, yellow fin tuna, black fin tuna and mahi. Releases of blue and white marlin. Nearshore caught spanish mackerel and ribbon fish. Inshore came in with a different variety of false albacore and spanish mackerel on fly and of course some beautiful trout, blue fish and drum.
FUN FACT: There are estimates of 3,000 sunken craft off our shores. With that many downed vessels, it’s no surprise the Outer Banks is known as the Graveyard of the Atlantic. These shipwrecks date as far back as the early English settlements more than four centuries ago and as recently as spring 2020. The seasonal breezes erase the sand off some of these wooden hulks, making for neat pictures on the beach. Others are a short swim offshore and attract snorkelers and spearfishing enthusiasts. There are some pretty amazing underwater photos out there of Outer Banks wrecks and relics. The elements that shaped these islands over the millenia don’t take orders from anyone. The main reason Cape Hatteras and Bodie Island Lighthouses are so tall is to be seen for many miles over the horizon, to let sailors and ship captain’s know to be careful along our coast.

Why do fish live in salt water?
Because pepper makes them sneeze!
Offshore caught wahoo, grey tile, golden tile, mahi, black fin tuna and yellow fin tuna with some releases on white marlin, blue marlin and sailfish. Near shore had an exciting day, bringing spanish mackerel, king mackerel, trigger fish, ribbon fish, red drum false albacore and sea bass into the creek. Inshore smoked the game with limits of drum and trout.
FUN FACT - Cape Hatteras has been a deadly trap for sailors that have entered for past centuries. This stretch of shore is home to more than 600 shipwrecks off the shifting sandbars of the Hatteras Islands. More than 2,000 shipwrecks lie off North Carolina’s Outer Banks. A dangerous mix of storms, shoals, and strong currents earn the area the nickname “Graveyard of the Atlantic.”

FUN FACT: The Oregon inlet, like all others, created when the Outer Banks was hit by a tremendous and quite violent hurricane in 1846. The hurricane created a huge watery gash between the Pea Island and Bodie Island. A ship named Oregon was caught between the Pamlico Sound during the storm and it was the sole witness of the formation of the inlet. After the storm passed, the crew headed to the Outer Banks and relayed the story of the creation of the new inlet and thus ever since the inlet has been referred to as the Oregon Inlet.
