What a ‘Fintastic’ Day!


2014 June Outer Banks 059The off shore tuna bite on the Carolina coast has been on fire lately and Blair, Jimmy, Harvey, Bill, Wally & Bryan were lucky enough to have a charter booked on the Fintastic at the perfect time on a perfect day.  They left from Oregon Inlet Fishing Center bright and early, actually it wasn’t even bright yet, and Captain Dicky Harris and mate Jack put them on the fish.  They even tell tales of huge tuna jumping from the water like silver bullets.  They landed 10 yellow fin tuna, the biggest being around 60 pounds!  And we were the happy recipients of lots and lots of fresh tuna.  I feel like Bubba Gump talking about shrimp, but we’ve been spoiled this week with tuna sashimi, sesame seared tuna, grilled tuna, tuna salad, tuna tacos, tuna cakes….and each was soooo delicious.  The tuna fishing is so good off of our coast, that they’ve been filming the NATGEO hit show, Wicked Tuna from Oregon Inlet as they go after the monster blue fin!  Charter fishing is a highly recommended adventure for your next trip to the area, and we’re pretty lucky to have it in our backyard!
