Ocracoke Fishing Report 7/10

Summer is flying by. I couldn’t believe it when I looked and saw I haven’t posted a fishing report since the end of June; busy times!

We have had lots of half day trips here over the past two weeks, with a few offshore gulf stream adventures. Overall the weather has cooperated, and we have had lots of fun.

Nearshore the spanish mackerel and bluefish have been really consistent. We have averaged about 35 fish per trip this week. A few cobia still hanging around as well.

On the wreck trips the amberjacks and sharks have been holding steady, with good action each trip.

Offshore the fishing remains above average for this time of the year. The great part about summertime is the variety of species you may catch. In the past week we have caught wahoo, yellowfin tuna, blackfin tuna, dolphin, triggerfish, silver snapper, vermillion snapper, and swordfish.

Speaking of swordfish, the bite this year is above anything we have ever seen. Lots of them around. If you ever wanted to go try and catch one of these amazing critters in the deep, now is the time!

As always, if you are unsure about what trip to choose for your group, give me a call. Always happy to talk fishing.
