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!!!



Spring Rock

It seemed like winter would never loosen her grip on North Carolina but she finally has backed off a bit… and just in time!  Spring time is Rockfish time and we have had several fantastic groups that braved the chilly “pre-spring” weather to target these super fun fish…. Thanks to everyone!!! 


June 20 Fullday

What a great day we had.Quenton my homeboy from gates county was on the boat today.Quenton always seems to getem when he comes with us..Thank you for all the support..We ended up with a great catch of gaffers baffers and bailers along with a 40 lb wahoo and our first billfish of the year.A cool surprise a HATCHET marlin which is easly mistaken for a white marlin..Glad for the beatiful weather and great fishing in our range..




Spring Haul Out

The Fistful is up for a quick spring haul out… getting ready for this year’s season!!  New zincs, some clean up, and a little wax and she’ll be back in the water ready to go 🙂  The days are getting longer and the warm summer fishing season is fast approaching… We are saving days already – give us a shout if you know your desired dates and we’ll get you on the book!  Thanks to everyone for all the support!!  We are looking forward to another awesome season with everybody!!


More sound fun…

What a nice family today… way to go everybody!!  Pretty work getting these fish to the boat…Thank you so much for fishing with us and we hope to see you next time you come to the Outer Banks!

Great job guys!

Thanks for the pics!! What a great day 🙂 Hope to see you guys (and Angie!) again soon!


Great Sound Rock fishing!

Karl had a fantastic group this go…. Dwight, Reggie, Jimmy – thank you so much!!  It’s always a blast to have great folks on the boat!!  Plenty of action, a limit of nice fish to take home, plus a little “surgery” makes for a fun day!! (Ha!)  Angie – it was wonderful to see you again!!  Hope your trip back was nice and relaxing 🙂  Send some pics if you get the chance and I’ll get them posted… hope to see you guys again soon!!

Turkey season starts April 14th

We have a handful of days left for the spring turkey season 2012..Just wanted to post a few pictures from last year..Also the sound striped bass fishing is great right now and we have time available during the weekdays.

Spring is almost here!!

It sounds a little silly to say “almost here” with the wonderful weather we have had this winter.  Early spring is proving to shape up just as nice!!  The sound rockfish are biting and it’s a fantastic excuse to get the whole family out on the water… 4 year old daughter Abbie has been practicing hard and has now mastered casting a spinning reel… She is moving on to tell Karl exactly where to go to find the fish these days!! 🙂  Don’t forget…Spring Turkey season is right around the corner… less than a month away!  This is yet another favorite time of the year – a wonderful time to be on the boat and in the woods!  Looking for to seeing everybody this spring!!!

Winter Rockfish

Looks like the fish are going to stay to the north this year with the crazy (yet wonderful) warm weather!  We are still watching the schools… let us know if there is any interest before they head back out of range 🙂
