Coming home early from fishing typically isn't a fun affair.... unless the reason is the fish box being too full to fit anymore! That was the case today; we got got our first wave of boats returning at 1pm and trickling in the remainder of the day. Our offshore fleet came back to the docks with blackfin, big eye and yellowfin tuna as well as mahi. The inshore crews played catch and release with drum and flounder, but kept limits of speckled trout!
We've got scattered availability this week, so if you would like to book your next fishing adventure call 252-441-6301 or take a look online at oregon-inlet.com.

Our nearshore and inshore followed suit with cobia, spanish mackerel, speckled trout and bluefish.
