Roughing it

May 21, 2023

What a wild and windy month it’s been so far! Anglers tough enough to make the ride have been rewarded with phenomenal fishing!

Despite a few blow days, our offshore fleet has been mixing it up with nice yellowfin tuna, huge bigeyes, limits of mahi, wahoo, and a handful of billfish releases!

Nearshore boats have been catching cobia, spanish mackerel, nice sized bluefish, black sea bass, and a few ribbonfish!

Inshore fishing has been consistent with reports of beautiful speckled trout, red drum, and bluefish!

We’d like to extend our congratulations to our very own Captain Chris Gornell of the Fin Planner as they recently won the Hatteras Village Offshore Open with 7 blue and 1 white marlin releases!
