For those of you here on the island today, welcome to the uncertainty of Hatteras Island weather! I'm not sure Mother Nature ever really made up her mind today!

Luckily there were spans of time that allowed folks to get out there and fish today and it yielded some great results!

Rodanthe Pier reported Croaker while Salvo had large Puppy Drum being caught off of Ramp 27! Avon Pier had Bluefish, Spanish, Pompano and even a 16" Flounder brought in! Avon Beaches had great catches of Bluefish with Croaker, Sea Mullet and Spot sprinkled in as well!

Buxton and Cape Point had Spanish and Bluefish throughout the day. Hatteras reported Croaker, Sea Mullet, Bluefish and Flounder.

Thanks to our friends Jacob and Jay from Goochland, Virginia for sharing their own fishing report with us from the soundside in Avon:
"Fishing with a popping float rig and 1/8 oz jig with pearl white soft plastic shrimp and grub Jacob caught his first ever flounder. Not quite a keeper but a real thrill!
Dad, Jay, caught an 18 inch Speckled Trout on the popping float rig. We tossed him back to keep making more babies. What a beautiful fish!
We also picked up a few small puppy drum and a real nice 12" mullet!"

Keep it up guys!

FISHING REPORT - 8/4/17

The blackout of 2017 is over and we're starting to get back to "normal" here on the island. There's been a nice flow of traffic onto the island today and we are VERY happy to see everyone! Everyone is in a hurry to get in and enjoy what time they have on the island, so please be careful and drive safe!

As for the fishing, we are just starting to get some people back on the beaches fishing. When I say that I have No Report from Salvo and Hatteras, its only because they unfortunately haven't had any reports coming in! Imagine January in July/August! that's how empty the island has been!

Today at the Rodanthe Pier they had catches of Bluefish and Sheepshead! They are also reporting that Cobia were spotted, but none caught. Yet!

Avon Fishing Pier NC has remained slow today but did report some small Bluefish being caught! We have been lucky enough to have several customers come in today with some great catches of Sea Mullet and Croaker off the Surf and Dave shared the photos below of his Speckled Trout catches from the Soundside!

Shelly Island has had Spanish running each morning and late evening! These are mostly being caught on sting silvers!

We have a great selection of Bait, Fresh and Frozen along with a great variety of tackle to outfit any tackle box!

Come see us!
