If you’re an angler, you probably know that the Big Kahuna of the offshore, inshore and beach scene is Hatteras fishing. In fact, the offshore industry was born in Hatteras, and it continues to be a major draw today. Hatteras fishing is so popular that people come from around the world to experience the thrill of pulling in the Gulf Stream fish such as tuna, wahoo and mahi-mahi and to catch and release billfish. There’s a seasonality to what fish is caught when, so except for the coldest of winter days, you’ll find Hatteras fishing boats out most the year. And, from Hatteras docks, your run out to the Gulf Stream is much shorter than from the northern Outer Banks marinas, so you get to wet those lines longer.
But if you’re not from here or not a seasoned fisherman, how do you know what’s biting, what bait to use and other key questions like that? By a daily visit to our Hatteras Fishing Report. Boat captains post reports as they’re out on the water so you’re informed of all the action.
