Cape Hatteras Fishing Report: May 25, 2016:
Today's charter yielded lots of nice dolphin and a showing of marlin. Thanks to Gay, Sharon, and Chuck!
This 300 lb. blue marlin earned the Tuna Duck a place
on the board in the Hatteras Village Offshore Open last week.
Capt. James Coane will be captaining the Tuna Duck until Capt. Rooks has recuperated from recent back surgery.
Capt. Coane grew up in Long Island NY. His father introduced him to fishing and he soon developed a passion for the sport. James started his professional career out of high school working as a mate outer banks of North Carolina. After graduating college from George Mason university, James continued to work in the industry. Receiving his captain's license in 1993, James started spending his winters in South Florida chasing the fish with the seasons. He secured his first captain's job in 1998 and for the following 15 years operated several sport fishing operations, traveling up and down the eastern seaboard as well as the Bahamas, Caribbean, Central and South America.
We post a saltwater fishing report with photos EVERY day we go offshore fishing. Go to our Daily Catches Page and you can see our catches for EVERY charter we've run since July2009. This is helpful to show you just whatwe bring to the dock or release during each month of charter fishing on North Carolina's Outer Banks.
In the contiuing quest to offer a quality charter service, we have upgraded. Sound down acoustic insulation and climate control will offer added comfort for our passengers.
We fish for yellowfin tuna, bluefin tuna, blue marlin, white marlin, sailfish, wahoo, dolphin (mahi mahi), and king mackerel.
