Miss Hatteras King Mackerel Trip

Tuesday, November 20th

Jake and I went on a live bait king mackerel trip on Miss Hatteras with Captain Spurgeon Stowe. What an epic day we had as everyone on the boat caught their limit.

There were numerous NC Citation (30 pounds or more) kings caught during the trip. Everyone who went got to see some epic king mackerel "sky bites" where the kings jumped out of the water and into the live bait where they were hooked.

It looks like the king bite out of Hatteras may go well into December unless we have some unusual weather events. We were only about 5-6 miles off-shore so members who own boats could easily make this trip out of Hatteras Inlet. There are also charters who are doing these trips.
