Welcome to Tradewinds Tackle’s 47th season on Ocracoke!
August Fishing On Ocracoke
August brings hot weather, greenhead flies, and fishing opportunities for those on vacation. The hot weather generates afternoon thunderstorms, but the surf is often calm enough for some light tackle fishing. While spring and fall are considered the prime months for fishing at Ocracoke, some trophies can still be found in late summer.
