Best fall month?

Best fall month?




Let me preface this by saying I've fished the OBX every month from May to November over the past 6 years. July has been best for me, but that's largely because that's when I'm there most. In addition to our summer vacation, the family also comes now for a week in October, schedule permitting. But I'm looking to resurrect my old fall fishing trip plans. That said, what do you feel is the best month (Sept to Nov) for sound fishing? And what about surf? If someone had to book a trip months in advance, what's the best bet? For what it's worth, I'm more of a sound guy, even though I do love the surf.

Rocktober. Fish are heading to wherever they go for the winter and when you figure that part out, it's easier to target what you are after.

Ditto. Weather is sweet, water temp is sweet, fishing is superb. It’s hurricane season, but odds are in your favor to have a great week.

Fisher people rule in October in Hatteras. Fish

Well, looks like I'll have to figure a way to do both a week with the family AND an "anglers only" trip with the crew in October. How, I don't know yet...

thanks for the replies.

Oct, the hurricane height is past the water can still be fishable and the tourists are greatly diminished.

I’d say last week of October or first week of November. I like cooler weather and fish the surf primarily.
