I was just down last weekend. Pulled my 18cc. The winds were out of the SW so I couldn't get out but my Uncle fished a King Mackeral torney. They caought a nice wahoo, kings, dolphin. They use live manhaden trolled slow. They were out abaout 25 miles SE but I cant remember the spot. But the cool thing was a guy who I think won, caught a 33lb king mac right in the inlet by the coast guard at Ft Macon using alive manhaden.
But as far as bottom fishing, lots of bait inshore. Croakers, spot, sharks, mullet, sea bass, and trout were all caught. I can give you some common spots but best to talk to locals,
Fresh shrimp works good down there.
Not bringing my own boat, Possibly interested in deep sea, we have 3 people I don't know if maybe we can join some more to keep the cost down or not. But I just want to do some good fishing, possibly inshore or offshore.
