Another storm headed our way

Looks like this stormy weather will be with us til the middle of next week. When will it end, with April coming in this weekend all we can do is wait for good weather. The good news is the fish are here to fill the coolers. The yellow fin, wahoo and dolphin are here and the cobia are just to the south of Hatteras at this time. The RockHound has a few dates still open for April, so now's the time to book that Hatteras Fishing Charter.

       Call Captain Pete for open dates at,

Maybe this weekend?

With the weather gods help, hopefully we will be able to get out this weekend. The last few weeks we were unable to get offshore, but this week looks great as of now. The yellow fin and dolphin bite is starting to heat up in the south waters off of Hatteras inlet. We have 2 spots open for Sunday the 27th, call Cptain Pete for details, 757-256-6305

No go this weekend

The weather was looking bad for Sunday the 6th, but Saturday the 5th looked doable. With reports of a bite of BFT in the 100 lb class, just 5 miles off Hatteras Light house on Friday in just 3o feet of water had made my decision to head out. We departed the dock at 6:15 am with 14 kt winds out of the southeast. Heading out the waves were 3 to 4 ft. The radio was starting to get busy with chatter of the fleet out ahead of us of  how the weather was changing fast. Reports of waves over 9 feet were building up out past the Shoals, and water temps only in the mid 40's in 50 fath. There were no signs of a bite inshore as of Fridays reports, so we started to head out.  The further we got out the bigger the waves got and the colder the temps. With safety first, Captain Pete made the right decision to turn back and head in. There are little big boats and big little boats as the fleet Captains on the radio were saying, meaning even the big boys over 50 foot were being tossed around today. 

The Rockhound is booked for Sunday the 13th, and has openings for walk ons for Saturday the 12th.
