Summertime fishing can be a grind here on the Outer Banks, you just have to find ways to make the best of it! Whether it be fishing for new species, trying new areas and techniques, or chartering one of the many professional Captains/Guides here locally.
Offshore the Yellowfin Tuna are still around in good numbers, however they are not always so reluctant to bite. There have been reports of scattered Dolphin and some nice size Wahoo around, along with a decent amount of Billfish. Pictured below is Joe Jenkins of the Afishionado hanging a White Marlin flag from a trip the other day. Capt. Jack Graham and Joe are a first class combination, if you are looking for the trip of a lifetime give them a call!
Inshore anglers continue to find a decent amount of Red Drum, Speckled Trout, and Sheepshead. The nearshore fleet has been finding Spanish Mackerel, Ribbonfish, False Albacore, and even a few Cobia.
Pier fishing has picked up a bit the last few days as the water has warmed up significantly. Jennettes Pier reported a 40 plus pound King Mackerel and handful of Cobia over the last couple days. Jennettes as well as Nags Head Pier also reported Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Sheepshead, Croaker, Sand Perch, Flounder, and Pigfish.
Shark fishing seems to be the name of the game for Surf Anglers. Good reports of Blacktip sharks have been coming in from south of Oregon Inlet. Along with the sharks there has still been a decent amount of Sea Mullet, Spot, Flounder, Bluefish and a few Pompano being caught from the surf.
