I live in DC and want to fish Hatteras, what's the best time of year to come and fish the surf and will there be reds there?

Probably Late Oct-Nov. At least that's when I've caught them. IMO. Which doesn't always count for much. LOL. I am going down the end of April this year for the first time spring fishing. I usually only go in the fall but I just retired last month so I will be able to go.

If you are just after red drum,middle to end of April,or Oct for a fall trip.. If you are after eating fish and other species as well as drum,my suggestion would be May.. You also stand a chance of catching a cobia,jackcravelle,false albacore,spainish,bluefish or a drum that time of year as well... Not that you won't catch those other species in the other months suggested,I feel water temps in May bring more fish...
