Our Story

Family Owned

Our family has been in the commercial fishing business in Hatteras, NC since 1989. In order to insure a future in fishing for our children we started a retail market. We opened our market to add value to our products and provide a local market for our customers that do not want imported seafood.

Wow, it has been an eventful week! We have had so many things happening over the past two weeks. As everyone knows, when things happen they usually happen in threes. Well, let me tell you about my three', or should I say Graham's three.
First, he has been working on his Honda that goes on his skiff, that is almost done. Second, Graham is ready to go fish new area a little further away. Graham being such a meticulous mariner noticed one of his seals leaking a little oil, after further inspection he decides to do a little maintenance on his precious 3208 Turbo Caterpillar, brand new in 1991, which is also Graham's birth year. After pulling the engine to replace seals and hoses, he notices a few other things that he might as well replace while it is out and all apart. Captain Graham is not scared to spend big money on his baby. Well, you mechanical men out there, you know what I am talking about. One thing led to another and well folks, it has been going on two weeks and working on three before completion. We are waiting on one more part, which should be here by Monday or Tuesday. Has to be original Caterpillar, nothing else will do for the Captain!
Good things come to those who do good maintenance. I must say this, I have a shout out to one of our dearest friends, for the last 28 years, Mr. Larry Jones, Legendary Caterpillar Mechanic of Little Washington, has been the only mechanic to work on that 3208, this time was a very, very, very, very rare moment! Not only has Larry Jones taken care of our Caterpillar, he took great care of us as commercial fishermen needing to get back in the water, as it was our only source of income in those days, fishing was always on a hot bite and filling the boats, it made a good and honest living. Larry watched Captain Graham grow from a baby to an awesome fisherman of today. This time when Larry did the tune up on the Prowler boat, he knew that Graham owes the boat all to himself, an apprentice of the F/V Prowler for 20 years, doing all the mate stuff, cleaning, cutting bait, fishing, helping dad do daily maintenance, so as he learned he also earned, he never complained not once, always said yes sir, what next? Larry has taken Graham under his wing and is personally educating him on rebuilding a 3208 Turbo Caterpillar, one of the best engines they ever built. Thank you Larry for teaching Graham how to repair that wonderful piece of equipment, a true vintage engine now for sure.
Well the third one, is Graham purchased a Dodge Truck with a Cummin's engine in it, so he would have something tough, he always wanted to take a closer look a the Cummin Engines a little closer. Well, he took his Caterpillar put it in the back of that Dodge, went to start it and it would not start. So, he had to go find a trailer, find Jack have him come over lift it off the back of the Dodge put it on the trailer and hauled it over by truck to Larry. Well, Mitch came a little later, had to put a chain on the Dodge to pull it up on his flatbed car hauler and off it goes, it is still not back as well, it left the same day. Well, folks, I must say, I am still blessed. One, the engine never blew up, that would have cost double of what he has spent and also would have screwed up the engine, never, never drive it to extinction! Do your maintenance, good lesson to be knowing! Maintenance, maintenance, and more maintenance. And don't forget to log every maintenance no matter how small, date it as well with procedures. You should see Graham's ships logs, you would be amazed. And what a great opportunity bestowed on Captain Graham by Larry Jones showing his how to do it, he said he was amazing in detail and grasping every thing like a computer in his brain. We will be getting some more awesome fish from Captain Graham very soon! Thank you to everyone for being so patient with all of us here at Harbor House Seafood as we have also been very short handed. We also like many of us here are still suffering from Hurricane Matthew, it may not look like it on the surface, we as a village, are very good at making things look good. But underneath, we are all very vulnerable to our elements, most times, things are sunny and great, but other times are very emotional and stressful. Many lost their homes and had to move due to loss of work, which has caused a shortage of employees for our local businesses. Please and thank you for being patience as you visit all establishments, remember we had a very hard Fall due to Hurricane Hermine and Hurricane Matthew. I guess I just finally felt like venting, all of this and I still did not get to say all I wanted. I will leave you with this, I LOVE ALL OF YOU! Everyone that comes in my store to support us! Vicki

May is almost here! I hope it brings lots of sunshine and great fishing weather! We finally finished the repairs to the shop, or should I say, Robert has finally finished. He has now started on the house repair. Let me tell you about that storm Hurricane Matthew, he did so much damage to our little village. Many of us our having to raise our houses and some having to tear down existing house from the damage and build new ones. Thank goodness that we only have to raise our house. Fema wanted us to raise the house and the shop, however, after I told them of the hardship that would put on us, they are just making us raise our house. It will be in the fall after we close, we are number 32 in line. There has been about 20 or so raised before I got my number 32. So that is a lot of houses to be raised!
We got open late this year due to repairs. Graham has been fishing catching some Grouper & Tilefish, we are looking forward to the Yellowfin Tuna showing up, which should be pretty soon as there has been some caught up off Oregon Inlet. The Charter boats are starting to see some Mahi & Wahoo and are looking for the Cobia as well. Spring is starting to light up the fishing here and we are looking forward to great fishing season for everyone! Some of the beach fishers are catching Red Drum and big Blues! Hey, Mr. Sunshine! Can you please heat up the water so the fishing can get turned on, come on, let's get this summer party started! I am ready, how about ya'll!

Whoa, this might be the biggest fish of the week! Graham's 41lb Snowy Grouper came in around 40 inches so he's probably around 17-years-old or maybe more.

Along with the fresh Grouper we also have Blueline Tilefish and Wahoo!
