Beautiful day on the water yesterday with some new faces…We found some grass right out of the gate, caught all the dolphins we wanted and then pushed offshore and went 2-2 on sailfish. Plenty of birds around but never did come across anything else. The best fishing we’ve had in a week and pretty weather to go with it , we’ll take that every day!
The swells started to build at the end of the day and USCG station Hatteras was at the inlet to make sure everyone got across safely . Thank you guys for being there to assist ! ... See MoreSee Less
I hope the Gray boat wasn’t coming for you!!
See y’all next week. Fish ON
First day back after the blow and it started out slow. Had to look around for a bit to find there they had moved to , but we ended up with a mess of bottom fish for Jeff and the boys ... See MoreSee Less
Way to bring them in Captain Andy 👍
AFTCOHurricane Ida swept through Louisiana leaving a wake of devastation in its path. Our thoughts and prayers are with the fishing community and our broader AFTCO family impacted by this storm.
To provide support for anglers affected by Hurricane Ida, we will donate 100% of net proceeds from orders placed on aftco.com on September 8, 2021 to the Worldwide Anglers Relief Fund (WARF) created by IGFA and Costa Sunglasses. This fund provides post disaster support to captains, guides, crews, and outfitters who depend on recreational fishing for their livelihood.

Had fire Dave and the bottom fishing gang for the last day of the tile season today …they are a hoot. Every time we go fishing we have a ball no matter what , and Dave’s wife makes some killer food with the bounty they take home. Here is a picture from their last haul where she made some of the finest tuna poke you’d ever wanna eat ! ... See MoreSee Less
OMG! I love poke!
Today Clayton brought a group of guys that he used to take out when he fished in georgia that wanted do something a little different than they did in Tybee. Well the first bite of the morning was little blue marlin . Then the groom said he hadn’t caught a dolphin in 20 years so luckily we were able to find a couple schools of bailers that were cooperative enough and also picked out a nice gaffer in the bunch . A couple wahoo, a grouper, tile fish, and a big triple tail to add to the dinner plate as well and these guys got right back on the road headed south . Thanks guys!
Man we sure are lucky to have the variety we do in Hatteras, it doesn’t get much better than that. ... See MoreSee Less
Colton is the man!
Well the boys showed up this morning and said all they wanted to catch was a blue marlin and a nice grouper ….shew that’s tough right out the gate. But daggone we made it happen ! Doesn’t always work out but it sure is nice when it does. Had some wahoo, blackfin , gaffer , tiles and a triple tail to boot. ... See MoreSee Less
Well it was slow , and it was rough as heck. The boys hung in there and caught a limit of tiles and a nice grouper . Some days you’ll have that , but they aren’t going home empty handed. Thanks guys! ... See MoreSee Less
For those reading my posts I know without any question Captain Andy and the mate which happens to be my son will do whatever it takes to put you on fish.
Slow day? What happened was the mate not doing his job?
Tile and grouper, yum!

Missed an important post about our Alice Kelly 2021 girls …everyone had a large time just like they do every year !! We were lucky enough to catch a nice blue marlin for Becky , which was her first one…Congrats Becky ! Later on in the day Jessie caught a mahi that we took to the scales but wasn’t quite big enough for the big dolphin jackpot . A nice fish regardless! Looking forward to next year !! ...
