Offshore Fishing in Outer Banks

The Outer Banks are a dream offshore fishing location. Not far from the shore, you can sample some of the finest deep sea fighters. Yellowfin, Bluefin, Blackfin Tuna, Marlin, Mahi, and Wahoo are within a full day trip’s reach. The warm currents of the Gulf Stream flow near, which means OBX offshore fishing stays hot even during the winter.

Why are the Outer Banks great for offshore fishermen?

The Outer Banks boast a favorable fishing terrain. They are close to the continental shelf. Approximately 30 miles east of Oregon Inlet and Hatteras Inlet, the water depth changes rapidly. It drops all the way from 600 feet to 6000 feet without a notice. You know how fish like moving around physical structures? They like depth changing even more. Here, game fish can find loads of bait fish. This means an easy meal for Tuna swimming by. Meanwhile, the warm currents bring nutrients, and it all adds up to one big offshore playground. To make most of it, you will need to hire a skillful charter to take you out close to the action. There, you’ll need all your grip to get them to bite.

How to get them when you get there?

Offshore fisheries around the Outer Banks are rewarding, but may not always suit novice fishermen. If you are adventurous and want to head out, great! Getting to the fishing grounds is only one part of the equation, though. You will need to know how to get the gear right, but luckily many of the local captains are crazy about offshore fishing. They have the skills and will work hard to put you on fish. If you’re fishing during the summer months, trolling for Mahi, Wahoo, and of course Blue and White Marlin is a great way to spend the day. When Tunas arrive in winter, head out and either start trolling or employ chunking. By the way, Tunas love Menhaden.

Chris H. fished with Hitman Sportfishing on September 30, 2020
Research what you want to fish for, and try to talk to the Boat Captain before going out. Captain Byrd of Hitman Sportfishing took time to listen to the kids, and after finding out my son dreamed of catching a shark, Hitman Sportfishing made it happen.

It's small and a bit hard to find as my navigation app took us to the wrong place. But it's easy to get in and out.
