Fishing on the Oregon Inlet–Nags Head

 

 Fishing on the Oregon Inlet–Nags Head

I was excited when my brother and his wife invited my husband and me to go fishing with them at Nags Head.  My brother chartered a fishing boat.   While waiting for the charter boat to come in, I decided to take some pictures of the boats at dock.

Captains Will and Viv McPherson at Sinbad Sportsfishing Charters took us out to fish on their boat, Sinbad, in the Oregon Inlet.  They were wonderful hosts and showed us a great time.  They made the fishing experience memorable.

We are on our way, leaving the marina to head out to deeper water.

Once the Captain located a spot to fish, it didn’t take long for the fish to start biting.  My husband was excited when he reeled in his first catch.  That was the first time we had been fishing on the ocean.

My brother and his wife enjoyed themselves immensely.  They wanted to catch fish and fish they did catch!

It was a beautiful sunny day with warm breezes cooling us off.  We spent about three hours out on the water, and in between catching some Spanish mackerel and blue fish, we would sit back and enjoy the relaxing motion of the boat.  When it was time to head back in, my husband and I took some selfies.

The ride back to the marina was probably the best part for me.  So relaxing and refreshing as the water sprays peppered my face.  I wanted to remember this moment, so I took some pictures of reels and lures on the boat.

We passed several buoys as we headed in.

We didn’t get a chance to visit the Bodie Island Lighthouse, so I took a picture of it.  Maybe next time, we will make that visit.

We weren’t the only ones heading back in.  We passed a few boats that were bringing in their catch of the day.

All in all, the fishing trip was wonderful.  We caught over 50 fish.  I think that was great for our first time charter fishing.  We shared our catch with family and ate some tasty FRESH fish.

 Can’t wait until we go again!

    Oh what fun it is fish out in the vastness of God’s blue ocean. I have not done that but you have now stirred a spirit in me that makes me want to go out and catch a meal! Glad your trip was fun filled. As always, I enjoyed your writing, which is (by the way) why I read your posts. Learning… forever learning the writing process. Come on book publication of Patricia Fuqua Lovett!
