Offshore Gulf Stream Fishing Charters

Winter visitors to Salvo often get the opportunity to catch bluefin tuna caught on an offshore charter out of Cape Hatteras.

Target species: dolphin (mahi mahi), wahoo, yellowfin tuna, blackfin tuna and king mackerel. Offshore bottom fish species are also a possibility and may include gray triggerfish, black sea bass, vermillion snapper, and blueline (gray) tilefish. Our catch also might also include if available barracuda, greater amberjack, almaco jack, gag grouper and snowy grouper plus a variety of sharks and other species.

We provide all the best top quality equipment (rods and reels etc.), bait (usually ballyhoo), and lures. You are always welcome to bring your own rod and reel and any other bait you prefer, but our bait and tackle have been time tested to maximize your day on the water. Please be sure to let us know what you are expecting from your day offshore so we can do our best to accommodate your wishes.

Plan to bring enough food and drink for your day offshore (none will be available for purchase on the Stormy Petrel II). Coolers are always welcome. Also, don't forget sunglasses, sunscreen, rain gear (or extra clothes in case you get wet) and of course any needed medications. Don't let seasickness ruin your trip; take medication before the trip. Please wear soft-soled shoes on the boat. If you know that you or a family member is susceptible to motion sickness please read this important article about a great product called Reliefband.

We are open for chartering most weekdays for a full day of Gulf Stream fishing! Fish cleaning is available on the premises at Hatteras Landing Marina for an additional fee or you can take your catch with you to fillet at home. Remember, you will not need to purchase additional fishing licenses because all licenses are provided by our boat.

Departure time is generally 5:30 to 6:30 AM depending on the time of year, but times can vary to accommodate your party's needs. Capt. Brian will advise you ahead of time. We usually return to the dock around 4:30 PM.
