Wishes for Health, Strength, and Getting Back to fishing soon!

What an unexpected situation we have all been thrown into since our last post.  A HUGE Thank you to all of our First Responders, Medical Personnel, essential business employees, grocery staff, Military and all the rest out there working to keep things rolling.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in this different reality we are all working with and we look so forward to the light at the end of the tunnel – it is getting closer and closer every day!!

 

What about April fishing??  It has been phenomenal!!  TUNA has been the main fare with some mahi mahi mixed in and even a blue marlin already!!  Charters and Commercial Fishing have been limited on the Outer Banks but both should be picking up the pace rapidly as our visitors are able to come back to see us – the COBIA are getting close so we are all ready to get back to the water!!  Some sightings are starting towards Hatteras which means they are on tract to get to us early to mid-May… just in time to Spring haul the Fistful, Wrap up Turkey season, and finish up farm projects!!  Anyone looking to get on the books for the summer please give us a call – our calendar is continuing to fill up and we will certainly accommodate anyone needing to change or cancel a trip if need be.  Don’t hesitate to call or email if anyone has any questions or needs any information.

 

Meanwhile… it’s Spring Turkey season and project time!!!  Enjoy this time with your family – it’ll be back to business as usual before we know it.  We can’t wait to see everyone and don’t forget to support your neighbors and local small businesses as best you can…  See everyone soon!

 

      

Another Duck Season in the books!

What a crazy time this year’s waterfowl season turned out to be!  With insanely gorgeous weather our ducks made us work hard to find them but what a ton of fun when we all got together!   A huge thank you to ALL our hunters – waterfowl, bear, and upland birds (still going strong on Quail until the end of March!)… it is our awesome clientele that makes all the sweat, work, late nights and early mornings worth every minute and always memorable… Thank you.

 

As we plow into Spring the prep for next year is here and so are the Rockfish!!  Inland river trips are the table fare this time of year and the fish have been biting already!  Turkey season is just around the corner and you know who shows up after that – Mr. COBIA!!!

 

Thank you again to everyone… We are looking forward to next year already!!!

 

             

Changing of the seasons…

It’s that time of year again when the Fistful gets to take a breather and we turn our sights to the sky… Albemarle Outfitters waterfowl season prep is in full swing!!  A huge thank you to all our anglers this year – you make our job tons of fun and never boring… Thank you so much!!!!  We have tons of exciting stuff coming up – our new lodge is up and running for the season, waterfowl blind construction and prep is well underway, we have added Black Bear Hunt packages, our Quail/Pheasant/Chukkar Preserve Hunts are back and we have added another 300 acres of timber and swamp – loaded with ducks, bear, and turkey!  Thank you again for a fantastic fishing season – see everyone in the spring!!

 

 

 

Goodbye Dorian – Hello fishing!!

The storm has come and gone and we are back at it!!  Fishing was awesome before Dorian and has picked up right where it left off!!  Fall is a great time to get on the water – fishing is fantastic and the weather not so crazy hot!  Give us a call – Let’s go fishing!!

Let’s Go Fishing!

HOT weather and HOT fishing!!  Offshore and Nearshore trips have both been fantastic… super fun groups and a ton of action!  Looks like mother nature is going to give us a little break from the insane heat and get down right pleasant… the perfect time to get out there.    We have a few spots open next week… give us a call before they fill up!

Awesome Summer Fishing!

We are entering one of our favorite times of the season!  July brings sunny skies, beautiful water, awesome fishing, and tons of great people! Thank you so much everybody!  Nearshore family fun trips are a fantastic way to spend time together and get out there to not only catch fish but to see all sorts of cool stuff… what a great excuse fishing gives us to spend time on the water!  And the dolphin (Mahi Mahi) have shown up for our Offshore Full Day trips in addition to tunas, tiles, almacos, kings, barracuda and more!! Even a White Marlin Yesterday!! We have some openings this week – Let’s Go Fishing!!!
