Welcome to Tradewinds Tackle’s 47th season on Ocracoke!
May Fishing On Ocracoke
May is our peak spring fishing month on Ocracoke Island. Whether surf fishing, inshore, or offshore, there is a chance for the catch of a lifetime. The fishing will change from only seeing early spring species such as drum and bluefish to including summertime fish such as cobia, Spanish mackerel, and pompano.
Whether you like fishing for sea mullets along the beach or trolling for dolphin offshore, May can be a great month around Ocracoke. And the most excitement will probably be generated by near-shore cobia!

Capt Steve is The Man. I enjoyed many a fish catching trip aboard the Miss Ocracoke years ago. Before my health ended my travels. Love you Steve. Thanks for the memories!
