Blackfin Tuna
The smallest of the three tuna available in Hatteras waters, the Blackfin Tuna record weight is only 39lbs. Generally, these fish are 5-15lbs and are in our area from September to April.

Known for their bright green, yellow and blue coloring, Dolphin (Mahi) is perhaps the most abundant fish Hatteras has to offer. Dolphin are in our area mostly from May through September. A limit per Charter is 60.

Blue Marlin
A magnificent creature, this beauty ranges in size from 200-1000lbs and are nearly always released once caught off of Hatteras. The best time of the year to see these fish in our waters is May РAugust.

Yellowfin Tuna
This tasty fish is a smaller cousin to Bluefin Tuna and generally ranges in size from 15lbs to 90lbs in the Hatteras area. The Charter limit on Yellowfin is 3 per pers

This fish has stripes like a zebra and many razor sharp teeth. They are excellent to eat and are in the Hatteras area year round, but mostly in cooler month

White Marlin
The electric blue highlights of a White Marlin are perhaps the most memorable attribute of this fish. They can get up to 170lbs and are generally released when caught off of Hatteras. May – August are the peak periods to see Whites in this area.

Bluefin Tuna
This giant tuna is truly a sight to behold if you’re lucky enough to catch one. The Bluefin tuna can grow up to 700lbs and the season and limits is determined every year by the NCDMF, but is generally sometime in December or January.

King Mackerel
Though they have a clear resemblance to the Wahoo, they are nothing like it. Kings show up when the water becomes cooler in the fall and stay through the spring.

The center fin, or sail of this fish is it’s most prominent feature. Sailfish can get up to 200lbs and are released off of Hatteras. The best time to see these beauties is June – September.
