Let's start off by saying THANKS!! If you've got your trip locked in, you are doing great! Our Inshore boats went out all day today and got in on some action! There were a couple lulls in the day but the averages were great. We had 3 Citation Cobias, 2 were 48 pounds each and one was 65. Our guys brought in some Speckled Trout and Puppy drum again and had an even better day on the Miss Oregon Inlet for the PM trip like we hoped. It was a gorgeous day down here, we didn't know if it was going to rain a couple times but it never happened luckily! The Offshore boys had themselves another whammy with the Bigeyes! There were 8 Citations turned in for our hundred plus pound fish. They were: 118, 137, 142, 145, 156, 157, 165, 178. Other citations consisted of a 35, and a 36 pound dolphin and 2 blue marlin releases! The boats caught a lot of throwback yellowfin tunas but the ones brought in were somewhat of a mix. Almost every boat had at least one big gaffer dolphin. We are all ready for tomorrow, we hope you are continuing to book your trips in advance so you don't miss out. Call us at 1.800.272.5199 or Local at 252.441.6301 before 7:00pm and we'll take care of your fishing trip needs!

There was an attempt of a mini report going up today but the boats came in one after the other sooner than expected. The first boats this AM were the Inshore guys who caught their selves some blues and macks (Spanish Mackerel and bluefish). A couple Nearshore boats had a great catch of Triggerfish, Spanish, and Bluefish while another had a 52 LB Cobia! Also there were a really great catch of Speckled Trout and Puppy Drum caught today and our Lady Captain told us the water wasn't looking right and a little messy but they were still gettin' 'em!!! You just never know! We had 14 huge fish caught today. The Bigeye Tuna's were caught on every other boat it seemed like. Record citation fish were 1 Blue Marlin, 2 Sailfish, a 223, 192, 160, 161, 133, 131, 121, and a 119 LB Bigeye (although that is only 8 weighed out of 11 brought in today) and last but definitely not least there was a Mako Shark caught by a cute little lady angler that was 121 pounds!!! She said it was everything she could do to just get that fish to the boat. They are pretty aggressive so we can only imagine. Today started out a little rough with some squalls around this morning holding the rain over us but as the day progressed the sun came out and had the people coming out of the woodworks and even the boats came in a little earlier today! The day seemed to get prettier and the fish caught were good looking fish. Can't wait to see what the rest of the week delivers us. Hope you guys got your trips booked there is limited availability now but if you can't make it offshore or inshore then don't forget about our Headboat that takes everyone out! 6 days a week and 2 trips a day you have your choice!

This morning handed our Inshore fleet some excellent spreads of Spanish Mackerels, Bluefish, Speckled Trout, and Puppy Drum. The weather must have pushed offshore just enough for them to make it out and enjoy the day before the hot sun came out! Today most of the Offshore boats are getting their oil changed and catching up on their boat work. Tomorrow everyone is booked Offshore so we will see what happens then. Come down and see us at the ship store and pick up your Oregon Inlet Fishing Center T-shirts, we have hundreds to choose from and all different colors!

Have you ever stood outside and felt the weather go completely crazy? That is what it was like today. It started out overcast, then changed to sunny, then the wind just decided to take off and start howling. Our Inshore crowd got to enjoy a calmer morning until it got a little closer to lunchtime and they had the wind pushing them home. A few of them picked up some beautiful Speckled Trout and even some puppy drum. There were a bunch of AM and PM trips that got their Spanish Mackerels and Bluefish catches in the bag too. The Nearshore guys brought home some pretty King Mackerels, and some Triggerfish. Our Headboat, The Miss Oregon Inlet, hung out on the bridge and scored their people some croaker dinners. Around lunchtime after all the Inshore boats had come in and gone back out on their second trips there were a handful of boats that came in early from offshore. The ones who came in early by choice reported the fish were still biting when they left and that it was pretty good tuna and gaffer fishing today. It was either a pile of dolphin or tuna or a mix of both on the dock behind each boat. We had a couple white marlin releases but no other citations turned in which is unusual. There was plenty of meat and the conditions for the day started out smooth and seemed to only get rougher. We hope that tomorrow is going to be a good day but we will soon find out who's fishing and who's going out to breakfast! The wind has already fell out a little but the morning will clarify it all. Call us to get in on a trip next week before your day is no longer available. We have lots of people lining their dates up! Dial 1.800.272.5199 and get excited to come fishing with us!!! Keep up with the fishing on our Facebook "Like" page every day for updates and Follow us on Twitter @FISHOIFC!
Just wanted to do a little mini-report from the boats that were in before lunchtime. We had some nice big Spanish Mackerel's mixed in with our Bluefish catches today. One of our best local specials down here that you will find at the restaurants are the fishcakes! Yummy Yummy!! We had some more White Dotter Sharks caught and some Speckled Trout action too! It is a little windy out right now but the morning must have been beautiful! Our lovely Miss Oregon Inlet Crew caught a nice mix of Flounder, Gray Trout, Pigfish, and Pinfish this morning and are already out on their 2nd trip. There were a lot of happy people that came in and the boats are now going out on their PM trips so we will see what comes in next! One Offshore boat came in early with a husband and wife that just wanted to go catch something but didn't want to take any home, they caught some Tuna and Dolphin.

For the second report for today it is my pleasure to announce the fishing was on point. Our guys managed to bring in all kinds of different catches, some had more billfish, or more tuna or gaffers. We even had our last boat come in a little later because they were hooked up on a nice Bigeye Tuna! Overall everyone down here today got to see some great fishing at its finest. There were 5 Billfish releases; 3 Sailfish, a White Marlin and a Blue Marlin! Other citations consisted of an 80 LB Yellowfin and a 137 LB Bigeye Tuna! The Inshore crowd came in from their PM trips with some pretty catches of Bluefish and Spanish Mackerels again and we had a boat also bring in some Sheepshead and Triggerfish!

Yesterday's fishing report was back on track. We had a lot more action and fish caught that were a little harder to find over the weekend. Most of our boats came home with limits of gaffer dolphin, some with limits of tuna, and there were multiple bigeye tunas and billfish caught as well. There were a few bigeyes up there at 200 lbs!! Inshore had some excellent Spanish mackerel fishing and some bluefish. Nearshore there were no strong signs of Cobia because of the water conditions but there was one captured. We had another eventful day down at the docks so be sure to come check us out and keep up with us on Facebook and Twitter @FISHOIFC to get in on the action and get a trip of your own! We have a few trips available this week offshore but they are all filling in much quicker than usual so don't wait too long to reserve your boat. There are make-up trips if you do not have enough people to go but if you have odd numbers again it is good to get on the list as soon as possible. Our Nearshore and Inshore boats are taking AM and PM trips if you just want a half day of fishing or you can book the boat for a full day. Call us at 1.800.272.5199 and get in on some summer fishing action with us!!! Don't forget to 'Like' us on Facebook to see all the pictures of this afternoon, you may even be in them!

This morning was a gorgeous morning to be out on the water! Our Inshore crowd said they were absolutely enjoying themselves right outside the inlet today! Our boats brought back some nice Spanish Mackerel catches with a couple Bluefish mixed in, one also picked themselves up a 66 LB Cobia! Also we had some Nearshore action with an AM a pretty catch of White Dotter Sharks, and a man and his wife caught the mess out of the Triggerfish!!! To all you fishermen out there ALWAYS take your wife fishing!!! The Gulfstream action brought home was some great big Gaffers along-side our Bigeye Tuna's, Wahoo's and Yellow Fin Tunas! The Citation of the day for the Gaffer Dolphin was a whopping 60 LB's!!!! Ladies and Gentlemen that is a BIG dolphin! We had our Bigeyes come in also one weighing 225 and 120 Lb's and one other unreported on its weight was caught as well. We had a pair of Blue Marlin releases and their citations say one was 400 LBS and the other weighing 650 LBS! The fishing has taken a slight change but our fleet knows exactly where to find them still. We have a lot of people filling in the their spots so if you are looking for that half day or full day make sure you take advantage of it now whether it be Inshore, Offshore or Nearshore! The Miss O.I. is taking her AM and PM trips out too and they have been having a lot of fun out there. We are fueled up and ready to roll, get on board and let us take you out fishing!

Today was another crazyyy day!! We had some celebrities fish with us today!! The TNA Wrestling guys Jeff Jarrett, Jeff Hardy, and Hermie Sadler!!! What a great group of guys, It was so nice to meet you and we all here at OIFC hope you had a great time fishing with us!!! There were so many different things caught today. We had a Grand Slam, a Bigeye, a limit of gaffers, multiple meat slams (wahoo, tuna, and dolphin) and then there were a couple groups who had a great catch of tunas! Hearing about the boat traffic again today explains why it was another tough day out there. Someone said they counted 53 boats fishing the same area. The full moon is also another factor that allows the fish to feed at night and can sometimes make it a little harder. Our guys all came home with happy people no matter the hard times there may have been. Everyone got plenty for dinner! The billfishing has been pretty good the last couple days, if that is your favorite thing to fish for you might want to think about going! Our inshore boats got some cobias, Spanish mackerels, triggerfish and amberjacks today. We have all types of trips available this week so make sure you book immediately. The headboat is going out tomorrow call us to see what tickets we have left. Call 1.800.272.5199 or book online, also follow us on Twitter @FISHOIFC and 'Like' us on Facebook to see tons more pictures and more of our TNA Wrestling guys!!
Today was check out day on the Outer Banks, and Check-in day for the weekend fishermen. There were no parking places available at the boat ramp and every offshore boat was gone. Our Inshore boats were back and forth with their AM and PM trips, and they said it was an absolutely gorgeous day on the water today. It was kind of a strange day. There was rain in the morning and the water was still a little choppy, but then it evened itself right out and the sun came out and the water stood still inland. Today was much more of a challenge for our gulfstream guys because the boat population was doubled, if not tripled out there. The AM and PM trips for inshore returned today with some pretty catches of Spanish Mackerels, a couple Bluefish, some Cobias!, and a nearshore boat got a healthy catch of 32 Triggerfish, a few Black Sea bass and even a gaffer! Our Offshore fleet came home today at the normal times with some meat slams, (tuna, wahoo, gaffer dolphin) and a couple billfish releases. There were only Wahoo citations turned in today for a 45, 46, and a 47 lb fish! Two of which were caught by one cute lady angler! They were bigger than she was!! The headboat went out this morning and had tons of action it sounded like, some flounder, sea mullet, croakers, a little mixed assortment of fish. They are not fishing on Sunday but if you can get on the boat next week you should try it out and bring the kids! Captain Jerry and his loyal crew are ready to go 6 days a week so reserve your tickets online today! Inshore AM and PM trips are available and don't forget our Nearshore trips that go a little further out than the beach. It would be a great half day or full day adventure for the right group of folks. Offshore boats are steadily filling in their books so if you want a date you need to call in now and put down your deposit! Once they are booked up there are not as many chances to get what you want! Call or click today! 1.800.272.5199 or 252.441.6301
It is officially SUMMER!!!!! YAY!!! Going fishing today was a great way to celebrate the day!!! It was kind of a crazy report! We had some excellent Spanish mackerel fishing on the AM and PM trips along with some nice bottom fishing on a couple of our boats, including the Miss O.I.! There were some speckled trout and flounder caught and some really nice sea mullets! Sea mullet have been a local favorite around here for a very long time and when you hook up to a big one it is pretty exciting!! Its nice to hear that they were out there today! We had our Offshore boats come in at all times it seemed like, some were out there fighting their monster Big Eye Tunas that we all got to enjoy seeing! The Citations for those were 217, 207, 186, 166, and 166 pounds!!! That alone is 942 pounds of fish!! We can't leave out the 45 lb Wahoo and there were also 3 Blue Marlin, 2 White Marlin, and one Sailfish released today! A lot of big fish were churned up out there! The gaffers were, as always, a gorgeous sight all laid out on the docks this afternoon. I think the most gaffers caught on one boat was 45. The tunas were still all mixed in every catch but some got their limit and some got a mix. It was a hot summer day around here and it only gets us that more excited for the summer months ahead of us! If you are ready to go fishing please do not wait too long to put down your deposit, the days fill in faster than you think they would and there have been a lot of people around waiting for their turn to go. Give us a call toll free at 1.800.272.5199 or locally at 1.252.441.6301 and let us get you on a boat and have some fun!!! The headboat is another great way to go fishing and especially if you are looking to take the entire family. You can pick up your tickets at our booking desk 7 days a week or reserve them for the week of your vacation anytime online. Look for our updates via Facebook & Twitter @FISHOIFC See you at the dock!
So it sounds like today was a little tougher than the last couple days. The cooler temps make it a little tougher on the inshore bite for trolling but it didn't stop the trout or puppy drum, and we still had a couple Spanish mackerels and bluefish. The headboat went out on both trips and on the AM trip ended up catching some flounder and PM trip there was a little bit of everything caught it sounded like (croakers, pigfish, flounder, sea mullet). Today the Offshore fleet said it was a little harder to come by. There were boats back as early as 12:30 but the bite must have been a little more scattered. We still had a 40 lb Wahoo caught and 4 more Bigeyes brought in! Our Citations for those are 191, 162, 144, and 132 lbs! There was also another 3 White Marlin and 1 Blue Marlin released today! It was a lot of action for the conditions we had today and we are all anticipating what Friday will bring us!
