Get Ready for Fall Fishing

As the weather cools down on Hatteras Island, the fishing definitely heats up. Fall is known as one of the best seasons on the Outer Banks to land the big one as migrating species of fish maneuver their way along the Gulf Stream in search of new feeding spots. It’s the time when Sea Bass and Striped Bass, King Mackerel and Spanish Mackerel, Yellowfin Tuna and Dolphin, can all be found hovering off the North Carolina coast.
For most avid anglers, fall is particularly known as the season of the red drum run, and some of the largest red drum in the country have been caught right off the Hatteras Island coast.
If your casting finger gets itchy when the fall season arrives, remember that there’s still plenty of time to reserve a last minute fall vacation. During the shoulder season months of September and October, you’ll find plenty of businesses and restaurants still open, as well as exceptional rental homes that are available for last minute guests.
A large selection of Surf or Sound Realty’s vacation homes double as ideal fishing retreats, with amenities that will coincide with your fishing adventures perfectly. While you’re browsing, keep an eye out for homes that offer free fishing pier passes, (an easy and affordable way to access some of the best fishing spots on the island), and fish cleaning tables with water and lights.
With three fishing piers on the island and miles of uncrowded beaches, (which are particularly sparse as the fall season goes on), your chances of landing the big one skyrocket in the Outer Banks fall season. There’s still an irresistible last minute opportunity to get your lines wet, and with the fishing season truly taking off, why not just pack up the bags and bait, and tell the boss that you’ve “Gone Fishing.”
