January
Start the year with a bit of peace and quiet, as you explore the beauty of the Outer Banks without the tourists. If you’re lucky enough to find a working charter, then a trip to sea is in order too!
February
While most captains are putting the finishing touches to their boats in February, some hardy guides will be willing to take you fishing. Don’t miss out on the chance to land some Striped Bass on the sound. 
March
Bluefin Tuna are lurking in the deep, but waters are still choppy, so why not focus your attention inshore? Red and Black Drum are abundant here, so get your fishing fix in the shallows, and land plenty of meat. 
April
The fishing season really starts kicking off in April, with inshore, nearshore, and offshore fishing all offering up something. Target anything from Trout, to Mackerel, to Tuna and land a delicious treat for dinner.
May
While Bluefish join the inshore party, the warmer weather and calmer seas mean it’s time to go offshore! Cobia, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Tuna are all sure to keep you on your toes during a thrilling day out.
June
Whatever you’re looking for, Corolla has it during summer. Tarpon add to the incredible array of inshore fish, while Marlin make their way along the Gulf Stream. Wherever you go you can land that trophy catch.
July
You’d better reserve early to make sure you get the fishing charter you want in Corolla, as things book up fast. Head offshore to take advantage of the arrival of Sailfish for what promises to be a thrilling trip. 
August
With the kids off school, you may be tempted to bring them fishing in the Currituck Sound. But no one would blame you for being a little selfish and going offshore on your own for the Billfish bonanza. 
September
If you’re looking to avoid the worst of the crowds but still want the best offshore fishing the OBX has to offer, September is the time to come. Sailfish, Marlin, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and Tuna are everywhere!
October
Shift your focus inshore as fall hits. The calm waters of the sound are the best place for a productive fishing adventure. Target Tarpon, Redfish, Bluefish, and Black Drum to put your skills to the test.
November
Your best bet of finding a charter in the Outer Banks in November comes a little further south. Head down to the Albemarle or Pamlico Sounds and get your fill of Trout, Redfish, Flounder, and Striped Bass.
December
Most captains will be putting their feet up for the holiday season, so you may find it difficult to get on the water. If you’re lucky, a trip to sea will see you going after some tasty fish to feed the family.

September fishing trip

Not the best time for bass but Captain did a great job finding bass that where on the bite and helping with gear. We came in after the Hurricane and he had no chance to get out and find them before trip. But found bass and put us on them. The captain stayed in contact with me all through the week leading up to my vacation even though the hurricane was bearing down on the obx. This was much appreciated and answerd any of my concerns. Had a great day and caught fish thank you.
