On the south side of the point, there were a few spanish reported early this morning before the water got really rough.

Sound side we had reports of speckled trout and puppy drum. We have some great new rods by Toadfish Outfitters which are great for fishing in the sound from the shore or from a kayak. We have paired them up with different reel options including the Daiwa Laguna, Tsunami Guard and the Penn Conflict. Stop in and check them out!

FRANK & FRAN'S HATTERAS ISLAND FISHING REPORT - 8/27/19

Seems like a broken record lately, but the Speckled Trout are still biting well on the soundside! Click Clacks, Poppin' Gurgle Corks and artificials still seem to be the trick! Puppy Drum are being caught soundside as well, but still only a few!

Ocean continues to stay a bit rough as there are a few disturbances out there keeping us a bit churned up. Sea Mullet, Spot, Croaker and Spanish are still being caught!

Fresh Finger Mullet arrived tonight just in time for the diminishing winds of tomorrow!
