This week the wind has not been our friend for offshore. Our nearshore and inshore trips have rocked it though! Our nearshore charters had a blast catching some nice big black drum. They are a fun fish with lots of fight for their size.
Our inshore guys definitely had the spotlight this week. Lots of red drum, puppy drum and the cobia showed up strong yesterday. No matter the weather, our inshore guys can usually make it happen! So, if you cannot due an offshore due to weather, consider an inshore light tackle trip – they will not disappoint.
The weather is looking a little better for a few days next week – don’t miss out – book your charters 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
It has been an interesting week of fishing! The week started off slow, we had some cold water move it and luckily it moved right on out and we ended the week with some great offshore tuna fishing. On Thursday, we had Mac and the gang out with us and it was still a little slow, but we managed to put some nice tunas in the boat. On Saturday, we had Daly and his wife, Linda out to celebrate their anniversary on the water – and the tuna bite was definitely on!
The nearshore trips this week were a little slow, luckily the water is starting to warm up and the fishing should start picking up in the upcoming weeks.
Our inshore boats had some nice drum this week along with catfish and speckled trout.
We are starting to fill up quickly for the upcoming season – don’t miss out, book your trip today. Book 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!
We are really looking forward to the 2021 Season. Seeing old friends and meeting new ones. 2020 was a very different year and who knows what 2021 will bring – The one thing we do know, is another great year of fishing is ahead! Dates are starting to fill up quickly, so book your charter soon to get the date you want! Book online at www.fishinfannatic or call (252) 473-7092.
Here is a look back at some great times from 2020! Looking forward to seeing you soon. Tight Lines, Capt. Mark
