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.
