    Ended up buying a beautiful waterfront lot near Edenton. Loved the town. Don't know when we will be able to build a house yet but I am sure I will be down there fishing more and more....

    Thanks for all the input.

Plenty of crabs, are you going commercial or just rec.? Plenty of land or houses for sale, just depends on how deep your pockets are.

    So do the trout, drum and redfish go up the sound as far as Edenton? or are they mostly closer to the OBX portion of the sound. We'll be close to where the yeopin and Bethel meet the sound.....

    Thanks!!! BTW we are headed down this weekend and going to the Edenton Shrimp fest...

    Brian, I've have friends that have moved to Carolina along the sounds. They all like the area, except when a hurricane or northeast storm arrives. All have had property major property damage in storms and 2 couples in water front homes were flooded out. One couple almost lost their lives when they failed to evacuate. They sold the house and moved to higher ground near Belhaven. Another couple road out a storm in a neighbor's house on high ground, but they have vowed never to do it, again. (Their house is on pilings, but they lost all of their structure and belongings i the ground floor garage and work area.) A 3rd couple almost bought a house in Oriental. Later, they found that water rose 6' in a subsequent hurricane and ruined the first floor of the house.

    If you buy, make sure you check into the elevation of your lot and what has happened there in previous storms. Older sections of towns might be safer than new developments. There is a reason why early settlers chose those locations.

    Also, check out health care, how far away specialists are, and the quality of local hospitals, and what procedures they can and cannot perform there. We have, and that is one or the reasons that we will continue to live up here and visit eastern Carolina.

    Good luck.

    "They sold the house and moved to higher ground near Belhaven." That's kinda funny, the land around there has drainage canals just so they can drain and farm it. Bottom line, if you live by close to the water expect to get flooding during hurricanes. All these houses around water that's built on stilts are built that way for a reason. Eastern N.C. is low lying and flat, period! Bainczaw keep all that in mind when you do build.

    We're bought down by albemarle shores, we will be building on stilts. That's for sure. We r on the river side not on the open sound. That affords some protection.
