Default OUTER BANKS NORTH CAROLINA

Fishing was slowed down for a few days by back-to-back thunderstorms last Thursday and Friday nights along with strong winds, but things are getting back to normal. You can catch all the bluefish you want at Cape Point along with some Spanish mackerel. Gray trout and croaker also are being landed.
The northern beaches on Hatteras Island are producing Spanish mackerel, blues and croaker while the southern beaches are landing sea mullet, pompano, blues and Spanish mackerel. The inshore boats out of Hatteras and Oregon inlets are catching cobia, gray and speckled trout, Spanish mackerel, blues and flounder. The offshore boats are catching dolphin, wahoo, tuna and king mackerel.

Default Outer Banks striper fishing

Just found this site. Cool. Used to be stationed down there in the CG in Hatteras. Have been returning there for the past 3 years in December and April. Some truly huge stripers are caught there, unlike up here in Maine. We have big fish but not in the #'s that NC has. How about anyone else.........How many people on this site fish the Outer Banks.

Default Mr white

Welcome to the board.

The Carolinas are their wintering grounds. part of the reason according to the latest research is the shear numbers of menhaden, juvenile spot and croaker for them to feed on. The outer banks holds an unbelievable amount of baitfish. I havent fished down there but I have a buddy who is a golf nut who has a house down there and has invited me down for a vacation. I must take him up on it some day. This is the slow season down there. Mostly red drum and cobia now with the occasional striper mixed in.
Hatteras has incredible offshore action.
I hope you consider registering and adding to our member list.

Happy fishing

jim

Default "The Great Blitz."

Outer Banks
"The Great Blitz." Veteran anglers said they had never seen anything like this with the water boiling with stripers rolling over in the surf. More than 200 stripers were landed on lures. Jeff Sundem and Mike Sundem of Richmond landed four each up to 30 pounds with the new lure sensation called the Striper Slayer eel by Shore Lure Co. A good number of big keeper stripers were caught by other anglers with this lure as well as the Striper Slayer "Peanut Bunker." two stripers over 40 inches with the yellow Striper Slayer. Up to 43 inche stripers caught with the eel at Hatteras Inlet where speckled trout fishing also has been good. . There have been scattered catches of stripers at Cape Point where Cape Point also has produced good catches of speckled trout, puppy drum and a few blues.

Ocracoke Island reports stripers and speckled trout. Scattered catches of stripers and speckled trout were reported on both the northern and southern beaches. The offshore boats out of Hatteras Inlet report good catches of king mackerel, yellowfin and bluefin tuna, while the inshore boats report good catches of stripers. The weather took a wintery turn Sunday night when Hatteras Island had a record low of 24 with a wind chill of 11 degrees with just over ? inch of snow.

Fishing out of Oregon Inlet Saturday, Jimmy Salmon, Jack Hendricks and Greg Harding caught 45 stripers up to 38 pounds, 44 inches. On Sunday they had to run farther north to find the fish, catching 30 more stripers with none under 30 inches, having four double catches of stripers and blues with no blue weighing less than 15 pounds.

Outer Banks

The East Coast freeze along with high winds has really cooled off fishing in the Outer Banks, but stripers are being caught by anglers brave enough to fish in the cold. Cape Point continues to produce stripers where Cape Point also is producing speckled trout and puppy drum. Before the frigid weather, some anglers caught good numbers of stripers using kayaks to fish off Cape Point. Private boats fishing the shoals off Cape Point, as well as the boats out of Hatteras Inlet, continue to catch stripers, but most stripers are staying out of reach for surf anglers in the warmer water.
