TW’s Daily Fishing Report

Sunday, August 28, 2022

There is some good fishing going on right now on the Outer Banks! Lots of Drum in the sound, plenty of fish to catch from the piers and surf, Billfish starting to show up offshore, what more could you ask for?

From the surf anglers are having good luck with Sea Mullet, Bluefish, Pompano, Flounder, Croaker, and even some nice Puppy Drum! Down south towards Hatteras there have been some good catches of Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Pompano, and plenty of Blacktip Sharks.

Pier fishing has continued to be good this week with more big King Mackerel being caught from Nags Head Pier and Jennettes Pier. There was even a 56lb King caught down on Avon Pier a couple of days ago. Along with the Kings there have been several small Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Flounder, Pompano, Sea Mullet, Croaker, and Sheepshead being caught. Down at the Bonner Bridge Pier there has still been plenty of Sheepshead being caught.

In the sound there have been more and more Big Drum starting to show up along with plenty of Slot Drum and keeper Speckled Trout. We also had a report a couple of days ago of a good Spanish Mackerel bite back in the sound! Kayak anglers and wade fishermen have been doing really well fishing in the sound lately, so don’t hesitate to give it a try even if you don’t have a boat!

Offshore there are still plenty of Wahoo, Dolphin, and scattered Tuna, as well as a good amount of Billfish beginning to show up. The guys bottom fishing are finding plenty of Sea Bass, Triggerfish, Amberjack, and more!
