Welcome to Tradewinds Tackle- We have closed for 2020 fishing season and will reopen March 2021! Thank you for a great season!

December, January, and February Fishing On Ocracoke

December brings an end to the tourist season, with very few people visiting the island. The people that do visit may find only one or two restaurants and motels staying open for the winter. But there is a special opportunity for those few visitors to enjoy the solitude and quiet, open beaches. Weather can vary from a beautiful blue sky to windy gray, so come prepared for the season.
