Fishing has been really good this summer so far. We have had some off days, but the majority of them have been awesome. The first 3 weeks of June, it blew 25 to 35 mph just about every day and that slowed us down some, but other than that it's been great. The Kid Adventures have been on fire, little guys catching fish non-stop on most trips. As well as that, the Speckled trout bite has been insanely good this year, having multiple 100 plus fish on 4hr trips. Thank you to everyone that has already fished and cant wait to see all of you that are on your way.
Thanks

Great morning of Speck fishing, Flounder and Bluefish mixed with some bottom fishing, avoided a big storm and then went bottom fishing again. Hit a island, did a little Hermit crab hunting and called it a day.. ... See moreSee less

2019 is in full swing!!

I was out of town for a few weeks, now I'm back and out on the water everyday. We had a mild winter which in return is giving us a little better fishing so far this season. The Speckled trout have been hit or miss, mostly due to the wind, but they are here and there are some nice ones this year so far. The bottom fishing is getting better by the day with a wide variety showing up this season, which is great in so many ways. Cant wait to see all yous this summer, new and old. Please try to remember to book early, as June and July are almost full. See ya this summer

Back to fishing a little earlier this season for us. The sound didnt freeze over this past winter, so therefore we seem to have some early birds showing up to be caught. Pam and Karen are usually my first trip every season as well as on my last, I always looked forward to our days on the water together as it's more about the time together than it is the fishing, know, don't get me wrong, they always find a way to catch them though. We had a few keepers in the mix, mostly on the smaller side, but the rods were bent, the weather was beautiful and we had a blast. Thank you ladies, as always, my pleasure. ... See moreSee less

Had the pleasure to fish with Lewis today, unfortunately he lost his left arm due to Osteosarcoma back in April, but little man had the best attitude ever about it all, I didn't even realize till a few hours into the trip when we were Hermit crab hunting that he still had a port in was still going thru week long chemo sessions and this was his only week to slip out and fish. I'm pretty sure he had a blast, as he had an adaptive fishing harness to help him reel in Speckled trout, Grey trout, Sea mullet, Croakers and a few Piggies along with his brother. Thank you @jamiehhinkle for reaching out to me and making this happen along with Healing Hearts Respite Foundation, kids like Lewis are truly an inspiration to all... ... See moreSee less

Let me tell y'all about Marc at Rock On Charters, Outer Banks, NC. Last week my friend Kim who runs Healing Hearts Respite Foundation said she had a boy fighting cancer visiting whose only wish was to go fishing. Kim was all set to take him to the local pier. Last Friday, on a whim, I reached out to Marc and connected him with Kim and TODAY they took Lewis out! It is amazing. This is exactly what #GiveBackforGrumps is all about.. the idea to help when you can, where you can! Marc - you've always been a stand up guy - Thank you!

If y'all ever find yourself in OBX to go charter fishing contact Marc!

Best kids charter in OBX!! We do one every year!

His customers are always smiling. Satisfaction guaranteed

What’s your prices? We are heading down in a few weeks

Does Rock On Charters even play Rock n Roll ? 🤘

I have been all over the place lately trying to make it happen. Fishing has been tough, but like I always say, I have the best customers ever, they hang in the when it gets tough, and we make it happen. The trout fishing has been little to none for all of us, you are privileged when you hook into one, the drum are here and there, and the croakers have taken over the sound. Started doing some spade fishing lately on the 6hr trips and it has paid off so far, a ton of fun on a trout rod. Thank you to everyone that makes this happen, you are awesome. ... See moreSee less

The biggest storyline though, is Mr. Fred, 87 y/o and put the whooping on the rest of the crew, 3 generations, all fishing and catching together this morning, I absolutely love it, it doesn't get any better.

What an awesome day on the water, had an awesome crew, awesome weather, and an awesome time. The fish were far and few between but they still managed to catch a handful of cobia with a keeper in the mix. We ran down past Avon only to come back and catch them at the inlet. Have to throw in that we had a 4 y/o that rolled all day with us like a king. Great way to start the season off.. Thanks guys ... See moreSee less

First trip of the season, well, kind of, more like buddies just hanging out catching fish.. They are usually one of my first every season and one of my last every season, couldn't think of a better way to start and end the season. We had zero expectations for today, just wanted nice weather, we got that along with a couple handfuls of Stripers and Speckled trout up to 17" which was great to see. Throw that in with all the Rays you want and we stayed busy. Thank you ladies, see ya in the fall. ... See moreSee less

The past few weeks have been rainy and windy for us, dodging storms left and right. I hope that is all in the past and that Irma dissipates without making landfall, not sure that will happen though. The fishing has been good when it's good and really tough on other days. With all the storms and all the different winds we have been having, I don't think the fish have a clue as what to do. Whether the bite is good or not, every trip has been fun and filled with lots of smiles. Now that school had started for most kids, the reports will be fewer but I will still update as I go out.

We have had some nice catches lately, from bottom fishing to Speckled trout and Drum fishing. We have still been battling the wind and a little rain here and there but the fish are still biting. The trout bite has died off a little this week but there again it has been blowing 20 plus daily.

We are still battling the wind and rain here on the Outer Banks , seems like it just won't go away. I've been trying my best to get trips in for everyone that I can while we have a window of opportunity to do so. The Speckled trout bite has been pretty good but today it was on fire, had overcast skies and it continued to get better as the day went on for us. We had plenty of limits by the end of the day but one trip threw them all back and the other kept a few for dinner and let the rest swim away as well. Going to blow close to 40 again tomorrow so we will have to wait and see what the next few days brings us as far as fishing goes.

We are still battling the wind and rain here on the Outer Banks , seems like it just wont go away. Ive been trying my best to get trips in for everyone that I can while we have a window of opportunity to do so.

Awesome day on the water with these four. We had a hard NE wind all day trying it's best to make it miserable for us, but it didn't work. We started off fishing, caught a few nice Speckled trout, Flounder and a some Rockfish to top it off. Today's trip wasn't about the fishing as much as it was to just enjoy the time on the water and relax. They brought their kids (dogs) along with them for the day and That was an adventure as one liked to jump in after the crabpot bouts while we watched Dolphin play and jump around.. It was all good though, he found his way back each time.. Anyways, thanks guys for an awesome and relaxing day on the water. Nothing beats catching fish, hitting a few islands, watching dolphins play and letting the dogs run wild in the islands.. Thanks again guys ... See moreSee less

Sneaking a few trips in here and there while the wind is halfway calm for us. This has been one windy spring this year for us and I can't wait for it to lay out and let the waters clean up a little for us. Been having some nice catches lately, but you really have to work for them. Luckily for me, I have had some awesome crews that make my job a lot easier and always fun. When you can find the Speckled trout, they all seem to be in the 16" to 20" class, which is a blast to catch. Throw in a few Flounder here and there and some Drum and it's on.. Ventured outside today and was able to get in the Cobia , something different for a change.. Thank you to everyone that has been out this season so far.. ... See moreSee less

Starting to run trips again when the weather allows for it. As you can see in some of the pics it has been pretty windy and a little chilly at times for us. The Speckled trout are showing up a little early this year and have some good size to them as well, hoping for a good season with what we have seen so far. The bottom feeders are showing up as well for all of little guys as well. Can't wait to see everyone again this year.. ... See moreSee less

First trip of the season was a sucess..The wind has been howling for weeks and the waters are muddy as can be, but the fish were biting. We had two nice Speckled trout that were right at 20" and a ton of small schoolie Stripers. I've turned down a lot of trips due to the fishing lately but I guess after today we are open for business. If we could get some weather to stick around without the wind, I think there will be some really good fishing going on. This year is shaping up to be a great summer for us here on the Outer Banks. ... See moreSee less

Took a trip down to Florida then the Keys this month to see my family and did a little fishing. The wind blew a lot, like here but we still managed a few good trips out of the deal. The trip down is always great because it gets me on the water and let's me find any trouble there may be with the boat. I threw in a few pics of the trip and can't wait to get this season rolling. Dates are starting to book up but there are still many left to be filled. Can't wait to see you guys ... See moreSee less

Have had some great trips lately with some awesome familes. I got a little behind on my reports, sorry about that. Overall we have had some great weather with the exception of a few windy days mixed in there here and there. The Kid Adventures have been so much fun, the kids never know what will come over the rail next and that really keeps them alert and wanting to catch more. Actually are seeing a huge variety of fish here lately as the fall weather is slowly creeping in on us. Thank you to everyone that has fished with us the past few weeks and I look forward to doing it again next season.. ... See moreSee less

It has been another great week on the Outer Banks, a little warm but still awesome. The Kid Adventures have been a blast as the kiddos have been keeping me busy as they catch them 2 at a time.

Started the day out with no wind and a slow bite, then ended the day with lots of wind and a great Amberjack bite. My crew came from to Texas so we had to go big or go home..

Had an all day trip today with a longtime friend and his family. We plan this trip every year but mother nature has always had different ideas for us. Well this year we couldn't have asked for a nicer day and we made the best of it. Started the morning off with roughly 70 or so Speckled trout, then went and caught some bait fish and headed out for something a little bigger. Once we got out a few miles we set the baits out and had a blast catching Amberjacks and Cobia. The highlight had to be catching them on the top water baits, what a rush when they explode on those things.. Thanks guys and can't wait for next time ... See moreSee less

It's been a great week for Speckled trout fishing. They are finally showing up and settling in where they are supposed to be for the summer months. Not every trip was on fire but we still caught them pretty good given the windy conditions that have plagued us this season. But all in all they are here and and it should be a great season for them. I didn't get many pics this week due to when we found them it was a fury and trying to take pics while dipping two nets at a time just didn't work out.

It's been another very windy week here for us. We got a few trips in with some nice weather but for the most part it was really windy with tough fishing. You could never tell that from these pictures though, nothing but smiles from start to finish. I honestly must get the coolest families and groups out there, they are always happy, smiling, just wanna have fun and catch fish. We caught a good variety this week along with some wild looking ones as well. Thanks to all of you that went out this week and didn't let the wind stop you from having a good time.. You Rock ...

Today had a little bit of everything mixed into it for us. We had Specks, Stripers, Black drum, Red drum, Catfish, Carp, Sharks, Grey trout and lots of bottom fish to keep is busy. The wackiest catch of the year so far would have to be Steve's carp he caught while bottom fishing for black drum and cats, he gave him quite the run around on the light tackle rod he was using.

It's been a tough week in the sound after the two depressions set in on us and then followed up by lots of heavy wind. There were a few nice trips in there though without the wind and the fishing was good. The Speckled trout bite is still coming around and it will only get better with some nice weather. The Kid Adventures have been a blast as always and the little guys have been catching a lot of Crokers,Spot, and Sea mullet. Thank you to all that have fished with me this season so far. ...

It was little wet out there today as tropical depression Bonni decided to just hover above us for 4 hrs.. I tried to believe the weatherman that it would pass by 9, but it didn't. We had rain gear and knew we were going to get wet so we went anyways. We caught Speckled trout and Stripers throughout the trip but just never got on any pigs. The fish are moving so fast it's hard to keep up with them everyday. Thanks guys for dragging me out in this beautiful weather we had today... lol We had fish, food, tunes and good laughs, so the rain really didn't matter to us.. ... See moreSee less

The Speckled trout bite has finally started to come around for us. It's not near as easy to find them like it was a few years back but I'm just happy they are back. Been on them everyday this week, at least trying to be. It's been tough fishing as they are moving as fast as they can thru the sounds, here one day gone the next. With a little luck and determination though you can find them. We have had some really nice catches this week and it seems to be getting better by the day.
