We going to Hatteras in Spetember/October to camp and surf fish. Four of us are heading down and we'll be camping for four nights. We have some flexibility on when we go. What would you suggest for the best time? What is the hot fish in the fall?

glad to see I'm not the only one thinking this far ahead to vacation time! We're also coming to Frisco in Sept. (Sept. 2-9). Our house is right behind the Frisco pier. To say I'm excited is an understatement! Haven't been to the Banks since 1997... and honestly have missed the place!

Keeping the fingers crossed that storms are to a minimum. My goals for fishing this year (I've only been at surf fishing for maybe 4 years now - and being from PA, only go about twice a year) are pompano from the surf, a nice red drum, and my big goal is a decent shark (anything over 36"). The blues and sea mullet have been nice - just looking for something new.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you as well Andy - here's to storm-free trips and good fishin!:D

Right behind Frisco Pier.. If you have semi-heavy tackle,go out on the pier just after dark and fish till they close with cut bait on fishfinder rig,you should tie into some sharks..

Remember NPS campgrounds season ends on 10/9/06 this year, so if you plan on using them then be sure to get in before then otherwise you will have to see if there is a private campground that is open then. Or you could camp 2 days and stay at DD's for 2 days if he isnt alread booked. The 9th is also a columbus day, this is usually when I come down because I am off work for the holiday. Anyway I hope that helps.
