Sunday April 30, 2017 I was invited by my friend Hunter Hicks to capture a day in his life as a mate on an offshore charter boat. Captain Tom Randall did an awesome job putting the guys on some fish! You could really tell both Captain and mate have extensive knowledge and really love what they do.
Hunter is a true waterman who has been fishing his entire life. He did not stop moving between cleaning and preparing bait, setting lines, telling stories and slaying fish to make sure the group had a great time, the day quickly passed by. When we arrived back at the harbor, the fish were taken to the fish house over looking the harbor, where locals Ross and Ryan cut them into fillets for the group to take home.
Hatteras is known for its world class fishing. With one of the shortest runs to the Gulf Stream where an abundance of fish are caught year round. Either offshore or inshore; from marlin, sailfish, tuna, dolphin and wahoo offshore to speckled trout, flounder, bluefish and red drum inshore. Book your trip with Longer Days Sportfishing Charters full day offshore or half day near shore, enjoy an experience of a lifetime.
