Winter has finally caught up with us in Manteo! We're just waiting for the Bluefin Tuna to show up! They have been biting down around Morehead, and we usually see the action in March and April. A handful of our boats travel over the winter, and they have recently all arrived at their destinations! The A Salt Weapon is in the Bahamas, and the Country Girl, HapHazard and Obsession are in Isla Mujeres, Mexico. Contact the captains for Bahamas/Mexico rates and availability.  Catch some of the action on our Gallery photo page or visit our Daily Fishing Report page to get the latest on what fish are biting!
