Outer Banks Fishing Report 10/13/08-Hatteras Island

With a couple rainy days here and there, anglers stayed a little damp, in and out of the water, but at least the fishing made a couple drizzly days worthwhile. Early in the week, there were lots of blues and sea mullet to go around, as well as a few big drum catches.
Later in the week, a northeast wind made the ocean a little rough for Northern Hatteras Island, but good news is on the horizon. We have a week of gorgeous weather coming up, with light winds and temperatures expected up to 80 degrees. This will definitely be a great week to play hooky from work, and take a fishing trip to Hatteras Island. Continue reading

Outer Banks Fishing Report 10/6/08-Hatteras Island

What a gorgeous week for fishing. With mild air temperatures in the mid-to-high 70s, and postcard perfect weather, Hatteras Island anglers were treated to a much-deserved beautiful week. The stormy days we had a couple weeks ago brought in piles of shells from Rodanthe to Ocracoke all week long, so beachcombers were treated to a great week of exploring too.
The drum run continues on the island, and bluefish have been everywhere for the beach fishermen. The blues might not always be the biggest catch on the beach, but at least no one left the shore empty handed.
Here’s what local anglers have been reeling in on Hatteras Island: Continue reading

The Villages of Hatteras Island

Everyone knows Hatteras Island can be categorized as its own little world, but the seven villages that are tucked in amongst the 70 miles of seashore are unique and different in their own right. When planning a Hatteras Island vacation with Surf or Sound Realty, it’s all about location, and your first step should be selecting the island village that’s perfect for your family. Here’s an insider’s look at the different Hatteras Island villages to help you make your vacation decision.

Rodanthe, Waves & Salvo: While there are no spaces in between or signs to mark the distinction, the first “town” you encounter after the Bonner Bridge is actually a trio of villages. Rodanthe, Waves and Salvo are closest to the activity and attractions in the Northern beaches just 20 miles to the North, but are secluded, quiet, and a stark contrast to the bustle of the Northern Outer Banks. Here, you’ll find miles of private beaches, small stores and restaurants, and close access to the Pea Island National Wildlife refuge, a bird watcher’s paradise. Continue reading
