The Smoker starts the fishing season off of the Outer Banks in early April which is when the Yellowfin tuna and a few scattered Bluefin tuna start to show up. Around may we start to see the weather improving which spikes the activity for not only Tuna but Dolphin as well. The peak summer months of June through September get your own Catch of the Day as a variety of fish are caught including tuna, dolphin, wahoo and marlin. As the cold water fishing picks up again beginning around October and running through December we are back in the fighting chair battling the good ole' yellowfin tuna again. Colder months such as January and February doesn't slow us down, we begin catching a good run of striped bass inshore and again the yellowfin tuna offshore.
As you can see Smoker Sportfishing doesn't stop much. The Outer Banks of North Carolina offers some of the world's best fishing grounds and with the Gulf Stream being so close we will have you on top of the fish and filling the coolor in no time. If for whatever reason your not sure what is going on, make sure you check out our fishing report page to see the latest catch and what has been going on in the Atlantic Sportfishing scene!
