Fishing in October??
I am thinking about heading down to the Outter Banks October 11th for a couple of days of fishing .I will be bring my boat with me and I have fished down there several times but never in October. What can we expect to fish for in the sound, not heading into the ocean. Any help would be appreciate on this.
Nobody has responded because this place is like the stock market. You never know what will happen next and there is no way to pin down what will happen next. Seasons change. Storms happen off shore that affect currents, winds and water levels. temperature changes, salinity, depth and more.
All the big fish come in here each year. It is just a matter of being ready for what is happening that week. When you are here something big will be happening. That much I can guarantee you. It could all change whithin the next day or it couldbe the same for weeks. These fish travel with the weather. If you can figure the weather out you will figure the fish out hopefully for all of us. That is why they call it fishing.
Steve - I'll be in Rodanthe Oct 13-27 with my family. I have heard very strong reports of large drum along the northern beaches. This cold front could push the fish south so hopefully the fish will be on Hatters Island sooooon. I fished the point 10 days ago and there were plenty of bluefish, mullet and spanish in the surf. Saw one overslot at the point about 30". Lots of puppy drum and guppy drum along the beaches from ramp 30 up (so I am told). Call me if you are still on the island when I arrive.
