July is HOT at Fish Ocracoke

The offshore fishing here in Ocracoke so far this month has been absolutely off the charts good. Don’t get me wrong, there is still a slow day mixed in here and there, but overall it has been the best we have seen in over a decade.

On our full day offshore trips its been big yellowfin tuna, mahi, blue marlin, sailfish, white marlin, grouper, tilefish, triggerfish… We have caught it all in the last two weeks.

We have also run a few nearshore half days with really nice families. They have produced a lot of bluefish, along with spanish mackerel, drum, and cobra.

Whether you are looking to check a certain billfish species off of your bucket list, or you want to fill your freezer with tasty fish to eat all winter, we can accommodate.

Come get some, give me a call and lets go fishing! You can check availability and book your charter online here.

May Update – Great fishing, lots of wind

Wow… The absolute best May for fishing that I have ever had in Ocracoke. Not one slow day yet, just unbelievable fishing. The downside is that we have been blown out of a ton of trips and been tied to the dock way more than we would like due to this wind. But the fishing sure has made up for it.

Lots of big mahi, wahoo still around, and incredible blue marlin fishing.

Inshore we have had a great spring on the drum.

We still have some dates left the second half of June and into the summer. Give me a call and lets go fishing offshore of Ocracoke!

5/6 Fishing Report

Pretty awesome fishing happening right now. We were nearshore fishing today, and had an awesome catch of spanish mackerel and bluefish. A couple boats went offshore had had good wahoo, dolphin, and marlin fishing.

Whether you want an offshore gulf stream fishing charter, or an easy nearshore trip with your family, we can make it happen! Fishing should be good right on into the summer. The very best Ocracoke fishing charter!

It’s Starting Early this Year!

We are back from the boatyard and so glad to be fishing. We had great inshore fishing for big and medium sized drum last week. This week a few boats are starting to head offshore and its been good with tuna, dolphin, wahoo, and blue marlin already around. We have days available, so give us a call, text, or email and lets go fishing!

Hot Fishing (And Weather) in Guatemala

Hola Folks! This is Captain Rob, I’ve been down in Guatemala since January 30. As many of you know, I took a job running a charter boat for the Blue Bayou Lodge on the Pacific Coast of Guatemala for a couple of months this winter. Our group last week released 70 sailfish in 3 days! Might have a few new tricks up our sleeve this year that we learned down here!

Its been an awesome trip, but as we click into spring, I’m definitely looking forward to getting back to Ocracoke and aboard the Free Ranger. I’ll be back in NC next week, and after a quick trip to the boatyard to do some bottom painting, we’ll be in Ocracoke and ready to fish by April 10.

Our mate from last year, Hayden Austin, is going to be back fishing with us this summer, so we are really excited to have him hit the ground running this season. He has been working diligently on tackle and keeping an eye on the boat while I’ve been away.

We have dates available throughout the spring and summer, so as you plan your vacations, don’t forget to give us a call and get on the calendar.
