This morning has been nothing but gorgeous! We had our AM trips come in with some Speckled Trout and they caught some sharks on the fly and spinners! Nearshore brought back some Spanish Mackerels and Bluefish and turned around to go out on their PM trips. Out of 25 offshore boats we had 22 go out this morning... We will keep you posted via Twitter/Facebook when we see the first boat coming in so you can COME SEE US!!! :) Have a great day!
Call us all day until 7pm at 252.441.6301 and get on the water!!!!
This report makes me want to make two, just so I can put all of my pictures up. Today was a HOT ONE! If you aren't booking your trips yet you really should try to get your friends together and make it happen. When you're out there fishing, its like nothing else in the world matters! Today was another beautiful day for our fleet. Nearshore picked up some gorgeous Triggerfish catches and said that they caught the cobia's, but a lot of them were throwbacks. Inshore caught some sharks on spinning reels and on the fly. They also got into the Speckle Trout and Puppy Drums just about as good as it gets. We did have a couple Cobia's brought in that were nice ones too but they didn't get them weighed. Offshore our guys came in with all kinds of different things. There were 4 Bigeyes, 2 Sailfish, and a Blue Marlin. We had limits of baffer dolphin (Gaffer+Bailer=Baffer) all over the place and the Yellowfin Tuna's were too. Wahoo's showed up in the mix and made some Meat Slams for some folks so all in all we had a great variety of fish brought home! We have trips available tomorrow that you can still book Inshore and Nearshore. You can book them half day or All day and Offshore we have Make-up trips being put together all day every day if you can't book the full trip for all day. Give us a call and we can help you figure out what's best for you. If you can book online that is also an option. We are open from 5AM to 7PM every day so don't hesitate to make the best of your vacations with us! Call 252.441.6301
If you weren't out fishing today, all I have to say is WHY NOT??? Just about half of the Offshore Fleet went out to the deep water this morning and returned with a bunch of FISH! The Gaffer Baffers lined up in their glorious rows down the dock and we still had some nice yellowfin tunas brought home too. There were a couple Citations today, one being a Blue Marlin release and a 35LB Gaffer dolphin. There continue to be lots of pilot whales and sharks out there, so the ocean is still plenty full of life. Give yourself a present and get off land for a little while! We have some Inshore and Nearshore trips that are tons of fun too if you can grab a spot. Our Inshore had some speckled trout, puppy drum and Flounder and Nearshore got their Spanish Mackerels, plus we even had some Cobia's brought home this afternoon! One group came in with 5! The fishing is always fun in the summer so while you're down here enjoying your vacation, don't forget we have the perfect fishing trip for each person in your entire family! Give us a call at 252.441.6301 or browse and book on-line! Your adventure is just a call or click away! Look for updates tomorrow on Facebook and Twitter @FISHOIFC. See you at the dock!!!
What a gorgeous but choppy day out on the water! There were 6-8 footers in the gulfstream for most of the morning. 13 boats made it yesterday and 4 Inshore boats went on All day trips. They came back with Cobia, Speckled Trout, Puppy Drum, and a mess of Triggerfish! Since it was going to be a good day to ride out, I decided to get a fishing report from the boat instead. The morning was so pretty and the water looked calm riding out. It was a little choppy but once we set out we instantly had a Blue Marlin crash our left long rigger on a tuna bait. When he hit it was game on from there!!! What was even more exciting was that we had an engagement happening on the Skiligal at the same time the Blue one was caught! One of our old booking desk girls, and friends Jenny and her boyfriend Snapper were out fishing beside us and as soon as they set out, he pulled out the ring box!!! It was pretty exciting to start the morning out with a Blue Marlin and a Ring!!! Congratulations!!!! We are all so happy for you and excited that we got to share that with you two!!!
After that we trolled around the rest of the morning trying to grab a tuna or a dolphin and ended up catching one of each. Some of the other guys were slowly picking at the tunas and doing pretty well for the conditions. There were some Bigeyes caught and we even saw one boat hook up twice! There was life everywhere! Pilot Whales were right beside all the boats in the fleet. There were some nice fish caught, 2 Bigeye Tuna citations of 182 and 156 LBS! We also had a 46 LB dolphin and a 45 LB Cobia brought in. We've got 13 boats fishing again today so hopefully they will get 'em!!! There are some Nearshore and Inshore trips fishing today too, if you want to book a fun trip with the family or some friends, it would be a great time to get out and enjoy the weekend. We have PM trips available today and there are Make-up trips available all week. We can put you together with 5 other people or match your groups together perfectly so you can get the chance to crank in your own fish story. Give us a call from now (5am) up until 7pm this evening and we will rig you up! 252.441.6301 or book your trips online!!! Have a great Sunday everyone!!!
Hope everyone had a great Sunday! It was a pretty day. We always enjoy seeing some of the things that one small day can bring, we had 13 boats hit the stream today! Nearshore got some awesome triggers today too!!! (Triggerfish that is!) The boats offshore either went Billfishing or Tuna fishing, Some got it good, some just had fun anyways! There were a couple bigeyes caught today though!!! Wooo Hooo we love our Bigeyes! We had a 250 POUNDER today!!! If you want to get out there and hook up to a rocket ship too then get on the phone as early as 5AM and give us a holler!! We want to take you fishing all over this place and we have every type of boat to accommodate your fishing needs! Our Make-Up trips are something to think about if you don't think you can go because you might not have enough people. We had some guys go fishing together today on a Make-up trip and they had such a great time with each other that they may just come back and do it again! You just never know who you'll meet and the fun you might have! Its so cool when things like that come together and it makes you thankful for just getting that kind of opportunity. We can get you on a boat even if you only have one single person. It might not be immediate if you have odd numbers, but it will happen! The headboat is going to be awake bright and early to take the first trip out if you're a morning person! If you want to get out after lunch we can do that too! Just call us at 252.441.6301 and we will take care of it! Book online or just come see us tomorrow, we'd love to see you!!!
Getting here this morning the rain had already hit, but it seemed like the clouds broke apart just in time for us to get some pictures. There were great catches of Spanish Mackerels and a lot of fun people hanging out around the dock. There are still some boats out right now but one offshore boat did decide to come in with the 8 tunas they had caught. Kinda cool to see what the fish have been feeding on, there were some squids in the box when they were unloading them. Hope that the others are getting their fish, all we can do is wait and see. Depending on the rain we will try to get you some pictures of the other 11 offshore, and our 4 Inshore boats that went. Its still raining now. Hope you are enjoying a break from the sun today!!! Give us a call if you want to come hang out with us in the gulfstream, or around our beautiful Inlet. We would love to take you fishing!!!

Hope you guys are enjoying this sunshine right now, its absolutely gorgeous looking out this window right now, the water is slick calm. Pictures don't do it justice. We had our Inshore/Nearshore came in with some Triggerfish and those pretty Spanish Mackerels this afternoon! Our other boys came in with their Yellowfin Tuna's, Dolphin, Wahoo. We released a couple billfish out there too. One Blue Marlin, One Whitey. Some got lucky today and didn't get hit by the shark attack out there and some got robbed of their tunas. Our mates have to be extra careful when the sharks start up that mess. As you saw in the early report today there were some squids getting spit up by the tunas so the feeding frenzy is on for sure. Nothing like seeing it for yourself out there! Don't worry about that storm either, Our Captains don't go unless its safe! Give us a call and get on one of our beautiful Carolina boats- we've got some spots available if you can grab a spot before they are gone. Please don't forget tomorrow is the last day to fish on the Miss Oregon Inlet until Monday since she doesn't go on Sundays! Call your favorite Fishing Center and get excited to go fishing! 252.441.6301 Check out our Facebook page and be the 3,333rd "Like" and we will get you a Free Oregon Inlet Fishing Center T- shirt!
Only 10 Offshore boats went out this morning due to the 20-25 knot winds that set some of us to the dock. It was a little too much wind for most of us but the Inshore and Nearshore boats still went out on their AM and PM trips! They had excellent Spanish Mackerel fishing which is what we kind of predicted. Sometimes when the fishing is super slow, the complete opposite comes along the next day and blows us away again. We had buckets of Spanish, a couple bluefish, some White Dotter Sharks (which are great eating!), piles of Triggerfish, and a couple amberjack. The Offshore boats that did make it came in a little staggered, some came in early with a full catch of Yellowfin Tunas or a Bigeye Tuna, a Blue Marlin and some baffers (what we call them when they are in between a bailer and a gaffer). Most of the boats came in with their tunas today so it was really a great day to go, just a little windy! One of our Mates took a beautiful picture of a rainbow that set right outside of 'The Crack' this morning (our shortcut channel that gets us to the bridge). It was 7-11 today and we got to see a rainbow!!! The Tunas showed up, another Bigeye, and the inshore bite was on! I would definitely say we had luck on our side! If you want to go out with us please go ahead and get lined up and reserve your trip. We have Make- up trips being put together everyday, so if you only have 2 or 3 (etc.) people let us know immediately so we can get you with the perfect match of people. Make-up's allow you to pay per person. We have limited Inshore and Nearshore trips available so if you want that Morning trip or Afternoon trip don't wait! The Miss Oregon Inlet has been getting the croakers so grab the kids and get them fishing too! Call us 7 days a week from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 252.441.6301 or book your trips right online! If you haven't already done so, "Like" us on Facebook so you can view hundreds of fishing pictures and maybe even tag yourselves in them as well! Have a great Evening we hope to see you soon!!!
This place is so pretty in the summer! Everyone has been enjoying the sunshine and breeze coming off the water this morning. We had some fish brought in today but a lot of the people were ready to take them home so they could enjoy the rest of their day. There were Spanish Mackerels, Bluefish, White Dotter Sharks, Triggerfish, a couple King Mackerels, a Cobia and a nice Red Drum!!! We also had some great Speckled Trout fishing! Our Lady Angler, Sarah from PA, caught herself a citation 5 LB speckled trout today!!! The pictures don't do those fish justice, Awesome job guys!!! Do us a favor and drink you water in this heat and if you are in the area come down and see us!! Keep up with the updates on Facebook and Twitter to see when the boats start coming in! Call our booking desk girls and book your Headboat, Inshore, Nearshore and Offshore trips at 441.6301! Have a great day!!!
Well the offshore report today was a little crazy. There were some Citation Dolphin weighed in. one was 46 LBS and also a 46 LB Wahoo! Some boats had limits of tunas and some had a mix. It was a little different than yesterday, since it was harder to find the grassline out there for the dolphin. We had a lot of fish cleaned and even had a Bigeye come in! One of our boats had a double header Blue Marlin, one was estimated at 600 LBs!!! Also had a Sailfish release today too. We have some days available to go to the gulfstream this week and the inshore and nearshore trips are filling in AM and PM trips. Get your crews together and book a full trip for 6 people or you can do a Make-up if you don't have enough to go and pay per person. We book trips everyday so just give us a call at 252.441.6301 and we will get you out on the water!!!
Hey pretty fishing people! Today was another wonderful day at Oregon Inlet Fishing Center and you know that I wouldn't say that if it wasn't... We had a terrible day fishing for Cobia's but we had a great day with the Triggerfish, Amberjacks White Dotter Sharks and Speckled Trouts! Those clouds just didn't want to give us a break! The Inshore and Nearshore crowd down here really just can't be beat. Our Lady Captain and Gentlemen Captains know what they are going after! No matter what you are going for we know how and when to get you on it! The morning held wonderfully for the trout's on the Fly and spinning reels. Nothing is more exciting than getting a hit on top water or jigging for a beauty like a speckle. Our offshore boys really showed their stuff today throwing their fish out on the dock. We had 3 Bigeyes hauled out on the dock today and had so many people looking at them getting jacked up about it! We even had a little man tell us he wanted to hold a certain fish, you can't imagine how much we can't wait to see that cutie come back and fish with us again. Fishing is giving us beautiful results for a hot summer July and if you don't think you are going to be satisfied then you just don't know what kind of fleet we really have here. You want some of the best, well look no further, give us a call, we don't have many spaces available but if we could get you fishing with us we would make the days shorter and the fishing times last forevevr! Call us tomorrow and tell us what you are looking for, we know you want to go!

It seems like today was another day like the last two, only there are better numbers of fish. Out of 42 Charter boats there were 11 that did not go for one reason or the other. We have almost everyone fishing in the morning so the report should be a lot more in depth tomorrow. There were Bigeyes, Wahoo, a couple billfish, and some had limits of both tuna and dolphin. You just never know what the day will bring. Inshore there were some sharks caught and we did also see a Cobia. The Inshore fleet has AM and PM trips but if you're lucky you might be able to snag a PM trip if you are thinking of going tomorrow! We will have updates as soon as they happen via Twitter @FISHOIFC and Facebook. If you are thinking about booking something, we are ready to help you from 5am to 7pm every day at 441.6301 so give us a call! Kick off the week with an Inshore, Nearshore, Offshore, or Headboat trip with your friends and families. The headboat can take the whole family and has 2 clean bathrooms on board and a galley. Just choose when you want to go, in the morning or the afternoon. We have a great Captain and Crew this year and you will be sure to have a good time. Reserve your trips online if you don't want to wait. We will see you at the boat!
Our fleet sailed again today with pretty good fishing. Inshore boats got on some Cobia's, Triggers, Puppy Drum and picked at the Spanish Mackerels trolling. There were some big Cobia's caught today, one weighing 80 lbs!! Those 80+ pounders are some massive fish, and getting to throw a bucktail at a fish that big is pure adrenaline. If you've never been Cobia fishing it is really a sight casting type of fishing, you usually have to look for them on top in order to get the idea of where they are. On a pretty day like today you can see why they were spotted. All of our boats have eyes for the Cobia's but they are really a nearshore thing. The offshore guys came in with some better gaffer and tuna fishing this evening and we did have a couple Bigeye's and Wahoo caught today too! Those Bigeye's are loaded with that red meat that everyone loves. The sharks have been enjoying it too, we see more and more tunas bit in half these days. If you want to go see it all for yourself inshore or offshore pick up a phone and give us a call and book your day to make your vacation something to remember. You can go to each boats calendar page and see what days they have available if there is someone you know you want to go with. We book Make-up trips all the time where you can piece together a trip per person and that usually fills up the extra days pretty quickly. So that is why we ask you please don't wait until the last minute. Call us from 5a.m. to 7p.m. every day of the week at 252.441.6301 and we will hook you up!
Good Afternoon Oregon Inlet people!!! Hope you guys are out on the water on this gorgeous day! It is slick calm out there and we have already seen some of what's going on with the fishing. There were some Cobia's, Spanish Mackerel's, and Triggerfish brought in this morning from the half day boats and the Miss Oregon Inlet got on some Croakers and Pigfish. Our boats are back out again but here are the pictures from the morning. If you want to get out on the water and go fishing we have you covered, call us anytime before 7 to book your trips at 1.800.272.5199 or local at 252.441.6301
Today we couldn't figure out what to expect with the fishing offshore. Our inshore boats have been finding the fish and giving us some inclination of what's going on after their AM trips each day but we have to wait to see what the gulfstream is going to give us. Our guys nearshore and inshore brought in some Spanish Mackerels again today. There were some Cobia's, Puppy Drums, triggerfish, and a even a big 'ol Blacktip Shark! Offshore we had some variety with the meat slams, double blue marlins, bigeyes, limits of tuna, Wahoo and limits of gaffers. The sharks, by the way, have been everywhere lately and some want to get their last bite of tuna before we get to throw them in the fish box! Our citations were a little bit of everything. We had a 69 lb Cobia, a 42 lb Dolphin!!, a 126 lb Bigeye Tuna, a Sailfish, and 3 Blue Marlins!!! There are a ton of pictures for the Facebook page tonight so check it out. Come on down here and get on a boat and experience this fishing for yourself. We have so many types to choose from, call us today at 252.441.6301 before 7pm or book us online anytime!
