May 2019 Fishing Reports

FRANK & FRAN'S HATTERAS ISLAND FISHING REPORT 5/31/19

Not much to say today. Fishing has been slow and well, the weather, still has yet to decide what it wants to do. Based on the "Burn Ban" we have in place due to dry conditions, we're hoping for a few showers to at least moisten the grounds up a bit!

Until we have some news again, we're asking you guys to FLOOD OUR FEED with your photos!! Photos of surf fishing, kayak fishing, kids fishing, grandpa fishing, mom fishing, or just fun in the sun! Let's Share and Post!

Here's our favorites for the week..... Ginger Rines Knight and StephanieandRandy Bayne made the cover of the Captain Marty Outer Banks Fishing Guide, plus you can read all about their team inside!

NOW POST AWAY!

FRANK & FRAN'S HATTERAS ISLAND FISHING REPORT - 5/8/19

ROUGH Ocean day, despite light winds, the currents were ripping through like crazy causing fishing / holding bottom to prove quite difficult! Friend of Frank & Fran's Fisherman's Friend, Frankie Carmello Hopkins, caught this 23" over 4lb Speckled Trout out in the sound! Sound fishing was the place to be today with Specs, Flounder and a few Pups being reported.

Hopefully the currents will calm down for a great day of surf fishing tomorrow!
