TW’s Daily Fishing Report

Sunday, July 2, 2022

Summertime fishing is in full swing on the Outer Banks, we are getting good reports from the Sound to Offshore!

Puppy Drum continue to be the highlight of the surf fishing reports. This has been one of the better years for Puppy Drum in the surf that we have seen in some time. Puppy Drum are still being caught in the surf consistently from Hatteras to Virginia Beach. Along with the Puppy Drum, surf anglers are finding Sea Mullet, Bluefish, Pompano, Flounder, Croaker, and a few Spanish Mackerel.

Inshore, anglers fishing from Boats, Kayaks, and even Wade fisherman are finding good numbers of Drum on cut bait, and artificials.

There are some decent Trout being caught in the sound. Check out Preston Benner (pictured below) who caught a nice 5lb 2oz, 26 inch Citation that he weighed here at TWs Nags Head yesterday.

The offshore fleet did not fish today with the rough seas offshore from the tropical storm, however the last few days have been good. The boats that flew the kite did very well on the Tuna yesterday, and there were decent catches of Dolphin as well.
