Fishing Report 10/20/08 Hatteras Island
We enjoyed a few record setting warm days early in the week, with no wind and gorgeous beach days, followed by a little coastal storm over the weekend to mix things up. This is an indication that fall has officially arrived. If you need further proof, the dunes are covered with yellow wildflowers (our version of fall foliage), and the drum have been reeled in from just about every beach and pier on the island.
With the storm out of the way, the rest of this upcoming week is shaping up to be more of the same – mild 65-70 degree weather, a little wind, not many people, and plenty of drum. You gotta love fall.
