May is the last month of the year we fish in Hatteras before taking the boat to Virginia Beach for the summer season starting in June. In may the fishing in Hatteras can be very good for dolphin and as the water warms, the fish get closer to Hatteras inlet. Most days, lines can be set within 20 miles of Hatteras Inlet and big catches of gaffer dolphins can be made. Trolling bites can also still be had from wahoo, yellowfin tuna, blackfin tuna, blue marlin, white marlin, and sailfish.
As the fishing gets closer, my daily rate for an offshore trip can get lower. We have been charging $1350+ per day all winter and spring for tuna fishing, but for the rest of may, I will book my offshore trips at $1200 and will still offer specials for military and multi-day bookings.
Cobia and drum are already being seen and we can begin booking inshore trips for those.
Either way, we have plenty of availability for the month of may. The dates I currently have open are: May 6,7,17-26,28,29, & 30. Give me a call at 757-749-6008 so we can get you booked and get your freezer stocked up on dolphin.
