At the north side of the island, Oregon Inlet Fishing Center is isolated from the Atlantic Ocean by a slim stretch of ridges. From this homebase, Capt. Curve Bracher takes his 50-foot sport-fisher, Pelican, after dolphin, wahoo, fish and marlin. “Oregon Inlet is a historic point for the nature of angling and the nature of the vessels,” he says. “The season begins in right on time spring with yellowfin fish and dolphin,” he says.
Whether you decide to come up short on Oregon Inlet or Hatteras Inlet, you’re certain to discover awesome angling for a wide mixture of fish almost throughout the entire year
