Fantastic Outer Banks Summer Fishing!

Summer rolls on with AWESOME GROUPS and AWESOME FISHING!!!  A huge thank you to all our groups the last couple of weeks… you guys and gals are always tons of fun!!  Fishing has been off the hook with DOLPHIN (MAHI MAHI), TUNA, MARLIN, TILES, and more!!  Don’t miss out and get on the books – we still have some open days in August but they are going fast! Let’s go fishing!!!

Summer Fishing is HOT!

A quick catch up… other than a couple of weather days and an awesome 4th (what a gorgeous day to celebrate Independence Day!!) we have been chasing offshore fish non-stop!  Fantastic fishing continues with Mahi Mahi, Tilefish, Billfish, and even some tuna still around!!!  A huge thank you to all our groups – you guys and GALS rock!!  This Thursday opened up last minute (July 15) and we have a few spots left the following week for both Offshore Full Days and our Nearshore Half Day (5 hour trip – Perfect for a family trip!)  It’s time to fish… Let’s go!!!

It’s officially Fall!!

Our hot summer months have slipped into cool Fall mornings, crisp Carolina blue skies, and continued awesome fishing!  The weather kept the Fistful at the dock several days the last month (definitely a sign of fall!) but that just gave us a good excuse to get some work done on our renovation projects for the lodge (Thank you Brandon and KB for all the help!!) and slip out for some of the BIG Red Drum!! (Pretty work E and Congratulations to Chip and the boys!!!!!)  As October approaches we look forward to more consistency from mother nature and are already seeing our tuna show!  This is also the time of year we begin our transition into waterfowl season… Geese and Teal for September with Duck Season soon to follow!  A bittersweet time… we hate to stable the Fistful but are so excited for the next season!!!  We will be fishing through much of October and have some days open for anyone looking to get out there!… The Blackfin tuna are here and the Yellowfin are typically close behind.  Give us a call!!

      

Awesome Summer Fishing!

Summer rolls on and the fishing continues to be awesome!  Mostly Offshore this past week – Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), Tiles, and Billfish are on the main menu with a few Tuna, some Amberjack, Wahoo and one Giant Pink Flamingo (what tha????!! Pretty work Jess!!) thrown in!!  Nearshore trips are smacking the Ribbons plus Spanish and King Mackeral, Drum and an occasional Cobia!  Don’t miss out… late summer/early fall is typically fantastic fishing and the scorching heat starts to settle down into super comfortable weather… September is BILLFISH season and the marlin are already starting to show!! Let’s go fishing!!

   

Welcome Back!

Welcome back to all our visitors!  Our season has kicked off with a great start… thanks everybody!!  We have a couple of weather days ahead of us but then will be back at as soon as the winds and seas settle…. We are full the rest of May but have days open starting June 3rd – Save your spot!! Let’s go fishing!!!

The fishing countdown is on!!

It’s official – The Outer Banks will be open to ALL visitors starting Saturday May 16th at 12:01 am!  We are so excited to be opening our doors to all of our visitors… we hope everyone is safe and healthy and we are looking forward to getting back on the water.  We have the 27th and 28th still available in May and more options in June for anyone looking to get out there in the near future.  Offshore fishing continues to be fantastic and the Cobia are set to show any day now!  Give us a call to save your day or if anyone has any questions during this crazy time… Most of our restaurants are open for take and/or delivery (and need all of our support now more than ever!) and our area is actively practicing social distancing plus sporting PPE in our groceries, pharmacies, and other retail establishments where distancing may be difficult (so bring your favorite fishing buff – it’s dual purpose now!).  Please keep in mind that essential supplies (such as the ever elusive toilet paper and paper towels) are still limited and bringing as many of these items as you can with you is recommended.  Thanks to all who have been patiently waiting… see you soon!!  P.S… a few quick memories from last season… 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!

Mahi, Tiles, Dragons, Tunas, Mackerels Oh My!

A quick catch up – fishing has been off the hook! Our offshore trips are smacking the fish and different everyday – TUNA and DOLPHIN (Mahi Mahi), TRIGGERS and TILES and even an early SAIL!  Nearshore trips have found the RIBBONS, MACKEREL, SHARK, and BLUES!  Summer is here and is the best time to get out there… bring the grown ups or bring the family – tons of fun and making memories!! Give us a call if you are ready to go!

 

Summer Fishing is here!!

The season is in full swing! Variety is the name of the game for this year’s start… Cobia, Mahi, Drum, Spanish, Kings, Tiles, Blues, even a Puffer and already seeing some billfish (jumped off a sail yesterday)!  The weather has been awesome and the fishing equally enjoyable… Thank you so much to everyone for getting this year rolling with so much fun!!  Give us a call if you want to get out there… it’s time to go fishing!

     

HOT Nearshore Bite!

As we are winding down our season the Nearshore action is ramping up!  Our Spanish Mackeral are snapping and the bluefish have shown up… super fun trips and awesome eating fish!  Our 4 and 6 hour trips are targeting these species and still watching for the Drum and Cobia… great for kids and a beautiful way to see the Outer Banks… We have a few spots still open the next 10 days then we change seasons… let’s go fishing!
