Ocean Isle Beach, NC? Anyone ever been?

Heading to Ocean Isle Beach, NC first week of August.
Anyone from the board ever been or near by? Sunset Beach, Holden Beach? Oak Island? We are pretty close to the SC border.
I will be taking fishing and crabbing gear.
Won't expect much in the surf that time of year but I'll be giving it a try.

Not to scare ya, but that's the area where the shark attacks are taking place.

I gotta go agitate the techies!

Re: Ocean Isle Beach, NC? Anyone ever been?

I spent a week there last year in mid August. Another member on here is very familiar with the area and gave me some great advise. Hopefully he chimes in. I fished the surf the majority of the time I spent there. Several hours a day. We caught fish, but it is really slow that time of year. Water is too warm. We did land a few stingrays, a small king mackerel, a red drum, and a flounder, but that was it other than lots of small baitfish. I hooked a large shark at the end of the week that my tackle was no match for. From what I gathered being there that week, our best bet at good fishing would of been to get in a boat for a full day trip out to the Gulf Stream. Good luck. It is a neat fishing town that I would really like to fish when the fish are biting. I hear it's phenomenal in September.

Sekora, thanks. Was the info. on an old post I could search or was it through PM's?

GB, not scared here. I'll have my sharkin' gear with me and I'll be renting a yak. Hoping to get some toothies on the beach.

Might try and fish jinks creek and some of the cuts near the ICW on the back side if I get the time.

Already looking into booking a 1/2 day inshore to take the kids/wife out for a meat haul. Would love to cook up some fresh redfish on the half shell or crab stuffed flounder while we are there.

He sent me a PM. I have since had to clear my messages so hopefully he sees this post.
