Broke bass fisherman

Emerald Isle help

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Headed to Emerald Isle, NC end of the week for a week of vacation and was hoping for tips and help. I have bass fished my whole life but have never done any surf casting or inshore fishing. 

Any help on lures, tactics, etc would be greatly appreciated as I don't have the slightest clue. 

I will be traveling with a 7' medium heavy and I know I need to re-spool the line from the 12lb mono I have on it know, I know it's not the best rod for the job but it's what I have, so any suggestions on line would be helpful as well. 

And lastly, if anyone is in a giving mood, freshwater bass holes around there would be great as well, no boat just my feet.

 Thanks in advance,

You have a bunch of options there. The pier at the Hotel is very good for pompano , blues and macks. Just need a few lures for the blues and macs. Pompano rigs and bait are available at the pier store.

If you go to the Fort and fish the rip at the channel you can get reds. Gulp swimming mullet on a jig head will work early morning or just before dark. Tide rips so hard there that bottom fishing is difficult.

At the park straight from the causeway before 9am you catch blues in the surf. Cut mullet works well.

If you are adventurous. Take the ferry over to Topsail and hike the beach with a your fishing pole. Fish are in that surf all the time.
