• Friday, September 28th - Sunday, September 30th

Bring your rods and reels and discover how incredible the fishing on the Outer Banks can be when the temps cool and the fall season rolls around by signing up for the Hatteras Island Surf Fishing Challenge. This popular fishing tournament that’s now in its third year for 2018 takes place all across the islands, and allows anglers to pick a favorite spot, cast a line, and hopefully reel in a few big catches, as well as a few hefty cash prizes, along the way.

The fishing tournament features four divisions - Bluefish, Flounder/Black Drum, Sea Mullet, and Spanish/Pompano – with thousands of dollars in cash and prizes distributed to the winners. The cost to enter is $60 per angler before September 17, and $70 after, and the tournament ends with an Awards Ceremony and Tournament Raffle at the Camp Hatteras in the tri-villages. Five weigh-in locations are located throughout the island for participants, and up to 200 anglers can sign up and join in the competition. With a focus on the incredible fishing that the Outer Banks in the fall is famous for, anglers will enjoy a full weekend of sun, fun, and hopefully lots of great luck along the surf by signing up for the  Hatteras Island Surf Fishing Challenge
