A deep sea fisherman’s paradise
Hatteras is known for it’s proximity to the Atlantic Gulf Stream, a nutrient rich natural current that is home to some of the best fishing on Earth. While many East coast charters offer Gulf Stream trips, many of them are tens of miles away from the Gulf Stream, meaning that a lot of your day will be spent motoring to and from the actual fishing grounds. Because of Hatteras’s outer location as a barrier island, the travel time to the Gulf Stream is greatly reduced. Less time traveling, more time fishing!
Hatteras is home to some of a saltwater angler’s most prized catches. Only a short boat ride out to the Gulf Stream, anglers can hook into gigantic blue and white marlin, as well as other billfish and tuna species. For a shorter day out, anglers can bottom fish close to shore for snapper and other species.
Off the water, you can enjoy the unpopulated beaches of the Outer Banks and enjoy the rich fishing heritage of this town.
