Outer Banks Fishing Report 10/20/08- Hatteras Island

True to typical fall form, this past week on Hatteras Island started with a couple days of wild weather, followed by windy, but sunny days later on in the week. The big story this past week wasn’t just the weather, but also the drum which were being reeled in all over the island. This is in no small part thanks to the Annual Frank & Fran’s Red Drum Tournament, which was held over the weekend and attracted 300 anglers, despite the windy weather. With a total of 154 red drum registered and released, ranging from 18″ to the winning 49 ¼”, it’s safe to say that the drum are keeping island anglers busy.
