Outer Banks Fishing Reports

Outer Banks fishing is some of the best in the world. In fact, many visitors come here for that activity alone. The Outer Banks fishing reports listed below include information from head boats, offshore charters, surf fishing, pier fishing and inshore charters, but there's also fly fishing, inshore wading and private guides and charters here. Various marinas around the area run these trips. Offshore fishing charters are the big kahuna of Outer Banks fishing, and many people elect to take advantage of the wide host of fishing charters and spend a day out at sea.

We receive new Outer Banks fishing reports daily, so you can find out what’s best to catch that day and where to catch it. Our Outer Banks fishing reports help you find marinas and sport fishing companies in line with the type of trip you want to help you achieve the optimal fishing experience. If you’re feeling adventurous, you might tackle some sailfish. However, the novice angler might feel more inclined to begin their fishing career by catching mackerel. By clicking on the entries for the fishing reports, you can find pictures of recent fishing trips. The shots of lengthy and shiny tuna can spark your motivation to garner a catch that’ll match the ones in those pictures...or even surpass it!

Parties of up to six people head out to the Gulf Stream most days. Head boats are a perfect way for families to experience Outer Banks fishing. But you might prefer a smaller group for your trip, which is always an option. If you decide to participate in a charter, make sure you call ahead of time to book your trip at a convenient time for both you and the captain. Check the Outer Banks fishing reports to see what's biting, then get out there and make some fish stories happen. Tight Lines!
