Some days are better than others, when it comes to fall weather. We may fish today and stay home tomorrow, but we'll get in every day possible.
Anglers Near-Shore and In-Shore are still enjoying some great days on the water. There were some nice speckled trout landed today as well as some great spanish mackerel and bluefish catches. With spanish mackerel catches weighing in up to 9 lbs this week, maybe one of our skilled captains can get you on the sweet spot to catch that state record breaker fish! Give us a call and try your luck 1-800-272-5199!
Boats sailed today and enjoyed a good day of fishing, with off-shore anglers bringing in some yellow-fin, black-fin, and big-eye tuna, as well as a few wahoo. Congrats to Brent Robertson for pulling in a 126 lb big-eye tuna! Nice work!

I guess the storm got things moving and shaking in the ocean because today was another good day of fishing. Black Fin and Yellow Fin Tuna are the talk down here at the Nostalgic Oregon Inlet. Approximately 50 years ago, we started out taking charter boat reservations in the back of Sam and Omies Restaurant. Just a little tidbit of history for our anglers! Feels like we have been here forever.
Derrick Creef of Elizabeth City, NC, caught a 40lb 20oz Wahoo.
Anglers were welcomed to a chilly start this morning, but had a fairly calm ocean after the storm. Anglers off-shore enjoyed some busy reel action, pulling in black-fin tuna, yellow-fin tuna, and limits of mahi. Congrats to Jackson Creschzo and Willie Dillard on earning trophy citations for their 20 lb black-fin tuna. There is good availability for immediate booking. We are working on assembling Make-Up charters this week and already have a few individuals signed up. Submit your request here in person at the booking desk or on our homepage.
Anglers Near-Shore and In-Shore enjoyed some great spanish mackerel catches yesterday, inching ever so closely to breaking the state record. Congrats to Owen Adelman on pulling in a 9 lb beast, a mere 4 lbs .01 oz shy of taking the title set back in 1987. He did earn the title of the heaviest spanish mac brought in to the fishing center this season. Congrats to Richard Quitiquit on his 8 lb beauty, earning him a trophy citation, as well.
