FRANK AND FRAN'S HATTERAS FISHING REPORT ADDITION - 05/21/2018
Been a beautiful day here on the island even though its been a bit overcast. Fish haven't minded at all with catches of Sea Mullet, Croaker and undersized Flounder at the Rodanthe Pier. Avon Pier and Beaches reported Sea Mullet, Croaker and various sizes of Blues! Buxton saw Sea Mullet, Pompano and a few Cobia while Frisco and Hatteras both report Sea Mullet, Blues and Flounder.

FRANK AND FRAN'S HATTERAS FISHING REPORT - 5/20/18

Cobia and Sea Mullet seem to be ruling the day! With heavy winds the fishing is difficult to get much to hold bottom, however, there have still been quite a slew of Sea Mullet and Cobia caught! Rodanthie Pier has reported Sea Mullet and Sharks while the Avon Pier had Sea Mullet, assorted sized Bluefish and Cobia!

Two of our owners, Heather Patterson James and Tim James, caught the cooler full of Sea Mullet shown below! Great job guys!

Winds should be calming down a bit tomorrow and should allow for more catching!

Fresh bait arriving this evening! We open at 6am tomorrow, stop in and get yours before its gone!

Today was another day where the weather couldn't decide if it was going to be rainy or sunny. That didn't stop the fisherman from trying so we do have a few reports to share.

At the Rodanthe Pier, we had reports of sea mullet,spot, blow toads and hammerheads. Salvo reported sea mullet. In Buxton, there were a few drum being caught along with sea mullets and sharks.

​What a beautiful day on the sandbar! Lots of catching going on today as you've seen from our posts throughout the day!

Tomorrows forecast looks to be amazing with a high of 79 and winds only getting up to 13mph but continuously S or SW! Which we all know is a great wind for pushing those fish right on into us!  Come on in and get your bait, ice, tackle and maybe a t-shirt or two before you head out! We'll leave the coffee on for you! Open at 6am - 7pm, daily!
