Grand Slam Week

These guys had a Northeastern North Carolina grand slam this week!! DUCKS, DEER, and now ROCKFISH to finish up the trip!  They’ve been hard at it today…up and in a duck blind before dawn and were tough enough to fire out this afternoon to chase down some nice rockfish… for a crowd that has never reeled in much more than a nice river bass – they did an amazing job!  Thank you so much Steve, Derek, and Phillip!!  We loved meeting you all and we’ll see you in March!!  AO

Never too young :)

Already loving waterfowl 🙂  It’s never too early to appreciate and love the outdoors 🙂

Ducks – Opening Day!

The cold weather is pushing the ducks hard to the south… always a great time with you guys!!  Awesome hunt!  Thanks Mike and Mark!

Early Christmas…

It is typically the end of December or First of the Year before we start to see the ocean rockfish migration get down our way; however, Christmas may be here early this year!  Reports from our neighboring Virginians and several North Carolina boats include nice catches of these impressive fish with several citations already brought to the docks!  The schools are scattered and still predominately in the northern waters but should follow the bait south as the month goes on.  We are busy this time of year with our guide service (deer and waterfowl) so we have had little time to see for ourselves but will keep track of what’s going on through the rest of the fleet…the water temperature is getting right though and everyone is hopeful for an early arrival this season!

Ducks…7 species!

Teal, Mallard, Gadwal, Widgeon, Ringneck, Wood Duck, and Bufflehead…and one awesome breakfast!  Glad for the good hunting… Thanks so much guys for all your support over the years… whoa whoa whoa yeah babe!

Ducks and Albemarle Outfitters

This is the time of year the Fistful boat gets a little  rest while Karl spends most of his time on the water pursuing a different variety of North Carolina’s wildlife.  Duck Season is here and is proving to be a bountiful one so far.  The migration to the south is up and running and fortunately we are seeing the results of all the cold weather hitting our friends up north.  Teal (Green Wing mostly plus a few Blue Wing), Widgeon, Wood Ducks, Mallards, Pintail, Ringnecks, Gadwal, Merganser, Canvasbacks and more are all here…(in addition to tons of Swan and Geese.)  A few days are still left (but not many) for December and January.. pictures and information can be found on our “facebook” page under “Albemarle Outfitters”.  (The hunting website is still under construction… :/ )  Please feel free to call, text, or email with any questions or for booking information!
