Deep Sea Fishing in Outer Banks

Outer Banks deep sea fishing can easily yield the most attractive catches on the entire East Coast. With the warm currents of gulf stream nearby, OBX deep sea fishing never really seems to stop. Charter one of the boats nested along the coastline, and a full day trip will suffice. These deep waters offer feisty fighters and nutritive specimens. Read on to see what you can get.

OBX deep sea game

To reach the battlegrounds, it will take you an hour or so. The big ones swim some 30 miles and more off the coast, depending on your launching point. Whether it’s Hatteras or Oregon Inlet, it won’t take too long before you get to the hotspots. There, depending on the season, you may find Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Sailfish, and Mahi Mahi. But, there’s more to it. Wahoo’s acrobatic feats, brawny Yellowfin Tuna, or Bluefin’s amazing bite force are what you may get on a full day trip.

When to head out

Depends what you want to get. You can take advantage of the Outer Banks terrain most of the year, but the summer’s super hot. Yellowfin Tuna come first. Their numbers heat up from late March to mid-July, and then again from September to early days of December. They are joined by Mahi Mahi and Wahoo near the end of April. These frenetic fish bite readily throughout the summer, and stay until fall, Wahoo even until November. As for Marlin, you can catch Blues from May until September, and their White relatives from June until September.

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.
