My Buddy Ben and I spent last weekend in Avon. We fished Avon Beach and fished with a captain out of Teach's marina. In three days of cool fishing, I should say cold fishing, we caught 20 to 30 Dogfish and one Puppy Drum from the beach. On the boat we tried surface plugs on the shoals at Hatteras inlet and on Diamond shoals, but got zilch. The area from Hatteras Inlet to The Point was absolutely thick with birds and bait fish, but no marks on the finder. The captain said we were a week late for the Trout and a week early for the Stripers. Oh well, still beats working!
