    If I can get there Friday we will fish the Lockwood end. Might even still be some mullet to net back there near the inlet. That would provide fresh bait for Saturday too.

    I was hoping you would come in early. Missed having my friend and fishing mentor there last year.

    I want to learn how to surf fish... I have the gear.
    Hopefully, I will learn from John on this as well.

    To be honest I know the basic principles of surf fishing from just getting out there and from YouTube.

    Put the bait on a circle hook and lob it out there. Place rod in sand spike. Sit down and pop a top. Enjoy the salty view. Check bait every 10 minutes. Repeat step 1.

    That's my method anyway. I will augment Step 3 with food however. Usually results in a bite every time.

    I understand SOME of the basic principles. But have no idea how to read the surf, look for places to cast, etc. No experience, or no SUCESSFUL experience, I should say.

    Remember... I have close to zero luck. If 10 of us use the same bait, same gear, cast in a line on the beach... I will be skunked while everyone else will catch their limits. So I need to try to find a spot with a chance of success.

    Red X Angler - When we catch and release we don't want to eat it, we just want to make it late for something.

    Pickup some Saltwater Fishbites they will stay on the hook way longer than shrimp.

    Southport. The Hampton Inn or the Wingate I believe Tim. We will take the second ferry on Saturday morning (7 AM). Sunrise on the Cape Fear. Then we congregate at the State Park office lot which opens at 8. Pay the ridiculous $30 4x4 fee (that's per vehicle) air down and find a hole containing multiple species. Eat, breathe and be merry with some of humanities finestkind.

    T'was not long ago my overized friend that I heard you echo similar statements regarding smallmouth bass which you now regularly catch. Fishing is not hard. If it was I'd play more golf. But collecting the vagaries and nuance of different techniques and environments that lead to catching fish takes time. Enjoy the journey. The fish will come.

    I will need a ride on the beach as I don't believe my 8.7" of ground clearance is going to cut it in the soft sand.
    Thanks
    Any favorite bait shops to visit and patronize? Any must have lures, tackle, or furniture I should not come without?
    Some mullet for cutting up for bait or shrimp or live bait if you have a live well. Texs tackle has some nice bait if you will be coming in there way. I will have some Fishbites on hand if you dont make it to a bait shop.

    Beach chairs for hanging out around the food table and hoping a Bull Red will hit. A sand spike for your rod plus what ever rig you you like to use, c-rig or a 2 line bottom rig and some lead weights. I usually bring some gold spoons also to cast into the surf.

    Updated list on attendees, if I missed anyone let me know.
    You will need a 4 wheel drive or see about someone giving you a ride. The access road is soft sand but the beach is not that bad.

    OH yeah... I found 3-4 tricks that bring the smallies…. But learning WHERE to fish for them was the key. What type of structure to look for... Where the bigger ones were likely to be.... And even then, if they're not after soft plastics, whether ned rigs, curly tails, worms, or crayfish... I am OOL. So limited techniques will bring some success once you understand where the fish are likely to be.


    That's what I hope to learn from this.



    I don't have even the first clue for surf fishing.
