Have been so busy lately, I have fallen behind on my updates, my apologies. Offshore actions (with the exception of the weather this weekend) had been great. Lots a really big yellowfin tuna, bigeyes and some mahi. The tilefish trips have been very productive as well, with us limiting out on every trip.
Our nearshore trips have been having great luck with the spanish mackeral the past few days and looks like that will just continue to get better all summer long.
Our inshore boats have been catching quite alot this past week – puppy drum, reds, speckled trout and sheepshead.
Not matter what type of trip you are interested in, they have been putting the fish on the dock. We do have some availability for an offshore make up charter on June 24th and June 28th at this time.
We are so thankful for as busy as the season has been so far. We are staying pretty booked up. If you are wanting to get out there, get your reservations in quick! Book online at www.fishinfannatic.com or call (252) 473-7092. Tight Lines, Capt. Mark
The winds have finally backed off some and the temps are on the rise – finally. We never thought Spring would show up.
Yesterday, we had an amazing group out with us. Wanted to thank Audrey and her family for spending the day with us.
The fishing has finally picked up and we had a great day with yellowfin tuna, blackfin tuna and some skip jacks. Lots of meat for the freezer.
Our inshore boats have been catching some nice sheepshead, speckled trout, drum and some cobia.
Dates are filling up really quick – don’t miss out. Book online at www.fishinfannatic.com or call (252) 473-7092 to book your charter today.
Wind was blowing a little too much for offshore today, but our inshore boats had a great afternoon. We had the Thompson family from DC and our captains caught quite a few red drum, some keepers for dinner and some that did not meet the slot and went back in the water for another day. Tomorrow is still looking a bit rough for offshore, but our inshore guys can make it happen. Tuesday, however, is looking great for offshore and there should be quite a bit of action after a break for a few days.We still have a couple of spots left for our Offshore Make-Up charter on May 6th. Our summer is filling up quick, so do miss out on a great adventure while you are here on the Outer Banks – we have something for everyone!! Book online at fishinfannatic.com or call (252) 473-7092!
In the past few days we have gone from our warm Spring weather to cold and windy. With the temps dipping, it pushed in the cooler water and made fishing offshore a bit tougher than it has been for the fleet. We did manage to have some nice yellowfin and blackfin tuna and a mahi (we got that bite too on the greenstick!). Starting next Tuesday, the weather and the seas look wonderful. It will be the perfect time to head offshore – warmer waters will definitely improve the fishing.
This weather has not hurt our inshore fleet. We have had great catches of red drum, speckled trout (1 of our captains reported catching over 50 trout yesterday) and catfish. While the offshore may be too rough to get out this weekend, the inshore guys can tuck in and miss the elements – and they have been having great catches this week. May is almost full, so don’t delay! Book your charter today – online at www.fishinfannatic.com or call (252) 473-7092
We love getting reviews from our customers, both the good and the bad. You learn something new from every review. We had a great charter in December, 2020. Dave and his buddies had a blast and caught some really nice fish. It was one of our last trips for 2020 and a with a review like this – we ended the year on a very high note. Thank you Dave for the very kind review. Here is what he had to say:
I am an Angler. I am a hunter, researcher, conservationist, and gamer of most aquatic species. I am the man nicknamed “Jeremy Wade Jr.” by his fishing buddy’s. I have traveled the world for great catches and have been on several great charters. When I spend my hard earned dollars on a fishing charter, I expect a captain with like mind, dedication, experience, and tenacity. I want a Captain who pursues relentlessly, because that’s just who they are. I want a Captain who wants to catch the fish, even more than I do…
Captain Mark Fann is a true boat captain. This man hunts with a tenacity that you don’t experience often from charter captains. His resume speaks for itself, but the respect that he was given by the other boat captains on the dock, was an amazing thing to see. It was as if he was the General amongst the fleet of tuna boats. There were several options available for charters, but I knew that we made a great choice with Fishin’ Fannatics!
Mark is a serious hunter. He doesn’t stop, not even for lunch. He doesn’t play games, he wants his boat in order and everything functioning properly. He is a winner and refuses to let excuses come between him and a good catch. He is a great Captain and a great man. It was an honor to be in his presence, learning from a true master of the sport.
I reserve a special title for the elite Captain’s that I have encountered in my life. It’s a very small group of exceptional anglers who have earned it. The title is, “O’Captain, My Captain”. Captain Mark Fann is the now the newest member of this elite club.
Thanks again Captain Mark for the amazing memories! We will see you again soon!
