We have a place at Oak Island we go to often and take the kayaks all over the back waters. We also like to take the ferry over to Fort Fisher and do the same there. I'm not a "boat" fan but love the ease and convenience of the kayaks. Both places have some good fishing for Spec's , Drum and Flounder From small boats, kayaks and canoes. With a boat you could run all of the back side of OKI up to Southport and over Fort Fisher and cover some really productive grounds around there.
PS Forgot to mention becareful of those areas at low tide. Good maps , GPS and experianced friends can save you there. A lot of the creeks can be high and dry at low tide.
