A little late getting this recap up, but as seems to always be the case here on the Island, the seasons blend together. Just as soon as we wrapped up our waterfowl season we moved into charter fishing preparations.
Welp… Here we site a couple of months later and we still aren’t in business yet. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone effected by this crisis; both physically and economically.
We feel so very fortunate to have wonderful customers who come hunt and fish with us every year. As far as the hunting goes, this year was slightly slower than average. As a whole our pintail and brant numbers were good, but our redhead harvest was off. I know it really was an exceptionally warm winter, because for the first time in 15 years on the island, my hibiscus survived. NOT A SINGLE night of below freezing temps on the island this winter!
Our two new sink boxes (curtain blinds) functioned perfectly, and we harvested most of our pintails from them. We had a very really good brant hunts from the layout boat, which was a special experience.
If you are interested in a 2020/21 duck hunt, please reach out. We are booking currently and dates are filling rapidly.
But why wait until winter to come to Ocracoke! We will be running fishing charters on our 38′ Ricky Scarborough all summer, so give us a shout or visit our fishing website to get something lined up. http://www.fishocracoke.com
