FRANK AND FRAN'S HATTERAS ISLAND FISHING REPORT-06/23/2018

Those who didn't get blown off the beach today may have actually caught a fish here and there. Unfortunately due to the strong and increasing winds throughout the day, the water has really gotten dirty. Also, unfortunate, is the wind is predicted to stay strong throughout tomorrow and potentially calm down a bit on Monday.

For today, Rodanthe Pier reported Sea Mullet, Trout, Croaker and Spanish. Salvo saw only Skates while Avon Pier and Avon Beaches were pretty slow throughout the day with most of the catching of Sea Mullet and Spanish being done this morning. Buxton area was slow with very little to report. Frisco Ramps 48 and 49 had several Pompano and Sea Mullet. Hatteras was also slow with dirty water, however, several Bluefish were caught out at the Inlet and a few of the Inshore Boats were able to snag a few Cobia!

Remember, you can't catch anything without a line in the water!

Want to wait until Monday to get out there, come and check out all of the other great merchandise we have! Shirts, Magic Mugs, Orca Chasertini cups, coolers and more!

We also had an additional winner in our Kids Weekly Fishing Contest! Meet Connor Mathis with his 21" Bluefish! Keep up the great work buddy!

​Schools out for Summer!! At least on Hatteras Island! What a beautiful day, it was here today! Tomorrow forecast looks to be another great day, with possible storms headed our way for Sunday thru Tuesday! But of course, on Hatteras, if you don't like the weather, just wait 10 minutes.....and it will change!

As for fishing today, we've had very mixed reports! Some have said "the Ocean is Broken", others have had great luck once they found that lucky spot!

Rodanthe Pier reported a great day of Sea Mullet, Flounder, Sheepshead, Spadefish, Pompano, Spanish AND Cobia! Whew! Salvo seemed to only have some baby Sharks. Avon Pier and Avon Beaches saw Bluefish, Spadefish, Pompano and a few Spanish. Buxton has been mostly slow but a few small Flounder, Sea Mullet and Pompano were caught. Frisco reports Sea Mullet, Pompano and Spanish. Hatteras saw Blues, Sea Mullet and Pompano.

Jim Snead of Crewe, Va., one of our regular F&F customers and friend, caught this citation Pompano today! He definitely found that lucky spot! Thanks Jim, for your business and friendship!

FRANK AND FRAN’S HATTERAS ISLAND FISHING REPORT- 6/5/18

Couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day on the island today! Fishing was a bit slower than it has been but seems to have picked up this evening as the sun goes down!

Rodanthe Pier reports Flounder, Puppy Drum, Blues and Spanish while Salvo saw Puppy Drum and small sharks. Avon Beach and Avon Pier both seem to have been slow this morning and afternoon with the catching picking up now and including Spanish, Blues and Sea Mullet. The Point, though closed to ORV traffic, is still open for walking and fishing and has had some great evenings of Spanish and Blues being caught. Frisco reported a slow day with only some skates being reported. Hatteras saw Pompano, Sea Mullet and small Blues!

The weather has been amazing the past few days (minus the midnight time storms). Evenings have been great for a beach fire with friends and family! Don't forget your F&F S'mores Kit, Blazing Buddy, Bundles of Firewood and a Fire Permit!

Congrats to Cody Howard of Lancaster, OH on the catch of a Red Drum from Avon Beach last evening! Thanks for sharing!
